My Armies

Postby BuffaloChicken » Sun Jun 07, 2009 6:37 am

Hey - figured since I plan on showing up at the club once I get home from Australia, I might as well start sharing my armies so people know what to expect. At the moment I have around 5,000 points of each Eldar and Tyranids. That's a lot of models, so I'll share them a bit at a time so I don't wind up posting tons of pictures at once. To start, here's some of my Tyranids.

Biovores:

Carnifex made from Kroot DNA:

Image

Big brutish Carnifex with crushing claws and deathspitters:

Image

My version of a 4-devourer 'Devilfex':

Image

Winged Hive Tyrant:

Image

Let me know what you think! There's plenty more pictures where those came from.

Thanks! I'm actually not too happy with a bunch of the pictures, a lot of them make the colors look dark and don't show up the contrast on the dark green bodies. Oh well, gets the job done!

Some Genestealers:

Two of my Lictors:

Image

A Carnifex made from Ork DNA:

Image

Venom Cannon / Barbed Strangler "Sniperfex":

Image

Tyrant and his Guards:

Image

Some shooty Warriors:

I've still got plenty more including a custom Trygon, converted Genestealer Cultist, and counts-as Fighta-Bomma and Basilisk for Apocalypse.

The lictors with their cameleon-like color-shifting are the shit!!!!

I love the visible variance of their genetic origins. Great army!

Thanks again - I was very happy with how the Lictors came out. They're all converted from the original 2nd Edition Lictors.

Termagants:

Image

Old Hormagaunts:

Image

Two of my Raveners (I really want to clean up the scything talons on these...):

Image

Red Terror:

Image

Leaping Warriors:

Image

Winged Warriors:

Image

Zoanthropes:

Image

Some Cityfight Stratagems (still need some more details):

Image

I have some more models I didn't show here a custom Broodlord, some different types of Gaunts, old Genestealers, some Warriors, Gargoyles, another stratagem and my magnetized Carnifex in some different variations (you can see it in two shots poster earlier - if you see a Carnifex that looks unconverted, it's the magnetized one). If you want to browse the gallery full of WIP shots you can see it here.

Next I'll post my converted Apocalypse Tyranids, then onto my Eldar. After the Eldar I'll post the artwork I've done while conceptualizing my new conversion-heavy Catachan army. A little hint - it's somewhat Jurassic Park themed. :D
