Finally, More Tyranids
I haven't been doing much painting recently, but over the holidays I managed to get some more Epic scale Tyranids done.
To get some tougher command units I painted these old-fashioned hive tyrants. They've always looked kind of goofy to me, but they actually have a lot of detail.
I converted these biovores from Warhammer 40k rippers and fleshborers. They are around the same size as the original Epic scale biovores. In Epic rules, these are a very handy artillery unit.
I also used 40k rippers straight up as raveners. They certainly look the part.
This is a closer-up view of the rippers.
I also painted my original trygons. I'm not convinced about these conversions, but they'll do for gaming.
The same trygons from the back.
My painted Epic Tyranid collection is getting pretty big now. I'm working up the courage to paint the excellent French exocrine and haruspex proxies...
