So I've been away from the forums for a while, feeling a little hobby burn out and a new addiction to world of tanks, however I'm feeling the draw of the Shadow in the Warp with the imminent release of the codex.

 

In the meantime, I haven't been idle, coming up with a new basing scheme for the army (sector imperialis bases for a swarm army is too expensive), completing a carnifex, buying a bunch of stuff, mainly in the pursuit of plastic lictors. With that in mind, I present the first of it's kind:

It's made from a variety of parts: Warrior legs and torso, warrior rending claws, tyrant guard scything talons, venomthrope head, and I think looks great. I'll get some better pics up soon.
 
I've also finished a carnifex (incidentally, screamer killer), the first squad of termegants, and a spore mine.
 
Since I went crazy at the start of 8th, I have a bunch of stuff to build and paint including start collecting and brood progenitor boxes, and some stuff I picked up in trade:
 
1 Hive Tyrant
7 warrior bodies
17 gargoyles
30 or so gant/gaunt bodies
1 hive guard box
1 zoan/venomthrope box
1 tervigon/tyrannofex
2 ripper swarms
 
Whether or not these all get constructed as what is shown on the box is another matter. I have some conversion ideas.

I swear I uploaded a photo of the carnifex from the front. I'll have a look for it. 

 

Thanks for looking!

Base colours all down on the Lictor and the exoskeleton has been shaded, just the washes on the carapace now, and the white highlights, then to the brain eating.

Nothing yet, I've only really just got them into a legal army - If I count the solo warrior as a prime. I totted up my totals and I'm at just over 500pts or so in the new codex. Kind of want to swap the carnifex carapace out for the spore cyst one though...

I wouldn't worry too much about the specific carapace / heads. Most people wont have any idea what all the different heads / bodies actually do, and those that will be aware will know what a ball ache it is to keep them current and probably wont mind. lol.

As long as you are clear with letting your opponent know whats what, I cant see it being a problem.

Lictor finished and based. I might revisit it at somepoint and improve the blending on the scytals, but he's good for now.

True dat. I still like to by WYSIWYG though! I really think spore cysts is the way to go, spinebanks dont even compare.

Merry Christmas all!

Family has been very kind this year and got me a Hive Crone and 2017 Tyranid Start Collecting set - this takes my broodlord total up to about 5 and my stealer total to something like 74. It'll be fun if I ever get them all painted!
