You would probably have to sculpt a new tail if you wanted to make it straighter, but it would be neat to see one busting out of the ground!

Ive never tried sculpting and probably never will looks too tricky for me. I was thinking more leaping down onto a ultramarine landraider battle for macarrage style (excuse spelling) from the top of a bunker.

Nice job on the Tervigon bud. They all look pretty darn good dude. I like the choice of purple for the brainy part of the zoanthrope. Any thoughts on brightening it up a bit, I just feel it would look cool to have it stand out from the rest.

How about an army shot?

I like the idea of the gaunt spawning from the tervigon, makes it really look like one!

very impressed, i never even thought about using magnets for metal units..brilliant idea. your painting skills are very good; also enjoying the color scheme. maybe add a neon color to give some accent to them, like an orangey color?

looking forward to seeing the completed army

Here's the new stuff!

I built the Tyranid Prime with the body of a 2nd ed. hive tyrant, added some warrior arms and resin boneswords, plus some chitinous plates on the head and viola! A leet-lookin T-Prime.

The trygon isn't new, but the paint is!

Image

Neither is the Tyrant, but he's still bad-butt.

I have to say I like the paint scheme. The Prime looks great! I also love the fact you used one of the classic models to make it lol. Also I'm glad this is getting posted in again because I was looking for your pictures a while ago for magnetizing Trygons lol.
