Alien Ships

I've painted a few alien bioships for the planned Mayday game, as opponents for the other spacecraft I've shown here before.  These are kitbashed from Warhammer 40k Tyranid bits.  I originally wanted to play Battlefleet Gothic with them, but since that game died, they were kept around until now.
First up are a couple of small ships, the equivalents to the corvettes from before.  These are Warhammer 40k Tyranid weapons converted into ships.
This is a cruiser-sized bioship, roughly based on the Battlefleet Gothic Tyranid Razorfiend cruiser, but made from plastic bits.
Here's a size comparison between the cruiser and the Orion frigate from past posts.  The Squadron Strike game will be fairly small, with three ships per side.  The humans will have the Orion and the two corvettes, and the aliens will have the cruiser and the two smaller ships from above.


  1. Those bio ships are pretty cool. I need to go back and re-read your other posts, especailly the ones on your shapeways experience.

  2. Nice job Chen--you really have two quite different looking fleets and I love that you just made the second one up with stuff you had laying around.
