Nice conversion, I suspect it would fool many a non-nid player. Interested to see these walky venoms. Have to say I'd probably have done it the other way around to try and recreate the original zoanthropes.
That's another conversion in the pipeline At least the next Neurothrope will be like that, with a smaller brood of walking zoans, and then floaty venoms. I'm not too bothered about Swarm homogeneity.

So quick updates:
Neurothrope - I've got the undercoat down and have started on the basecoat, this one should take too long. The Neuro has been dubbed "The Gribble Queen" and will be the swarm leader until a Tyrant takes over.
Update on teh walking venom
The head is missing, but will be a genestealer feeder tendril head, they fit perfectly, and I used the venomthrope head(s) on my lictor conversion(s)

In the meantime I've placed an order for a bunch of diamond check and bar plasticard in order to try and make more variety in my basing and keep the cost of the GW imperialis bases down.

So the next additions to the Fleet are under way:
First up is my converted Warrior Prime:
He features a reposed hip section to make him more upright, then a bent tail to compensate for this. Otherwise he's just a warrior with the added Prime bits from the boxed set. He stands a good head taller than a regular one though. Easier to shoot, but this rule of cool.
He's also magnetised to swap equipment, but I dont think it'll really vary between deathspitter with 2x bonesword and sword and whip.
I've also taken delivery of various plasticards with which to emulate GW sector imperialis bases. Using the official ones was getting expensive, so I made press moulds of some features, but plasticard is more economic in the long run. This is the base for my upcoming Trygon Prime: Plain card, diamond grid card and some square bars to divide them
Thanks for looking!

I've been collecting some tyranid and GSC models for a while now to make a Zerg (from Starcraft) themed tyranid army, not a huge amount of conversions in the nid side but I plan to make the GSC and Guard "infested" humans by sprinkling in a bunch of nid bits.
This should give me some good ideas for how to fill in that pesky elites section to grow my nids into a brigade!

Where did you get the diamond plate plasticard? I've been looking for something like that for a while.

So I finally pulled my finger out and got cracking with the Trygon Prime.
Nid models are hard to paint, but boy are they satisfying to finish (well, almost)
All that I need to finish is bringing the carapace up to a bright white, and then shade, drybrush and weather the base, then the big beastie is done.
All in all, probably about 8 - 12 hours over the weekend.

I finished up the base for my trygon:
I'm really glad that I went with an Imperial/industrial style base, as it really lets me play around with some weathering - meaning with the army I get all the gribbly gooey organic textures with the nids contrasting with the decaying industrial metals. This is my first real foray into custom building my own bases, and hopefully the bases are interesting enough but don't detract from the model itself.

Finished off my Tyranid Prime, apologies for potato cam pics, my phone seemingly doesnt like close ups...
All arms magnetised, although getting the deathspitter off without damaging the paint will be tough, I might just glue it in permanently. Arms are magged so I can swap the LW/BS out for twin BS, but I'll likely stick with this combo.

Very well thought out and executed.

My first goal will be another troop unit, maybe 5-10 horms or terms, then a harpy or hive tyrant!

I finally finished off the Warriors that had been on my desk for an age:
Photos are horrible and washed out, serves me right for taking them at night in bad light.
And the Swarm as it stands (or slithers):
Thanks for looking!

So this thread has languished for a while as I tried to get into 8th and the vanguard primaris drew my attention. I've picked up some more termagants to try and adapt my colour scheme to the contrast range. If anyone has some ideas regarding this, I'm all sensory organs!
I have a few test gaunts about which I need to photograph. They all seem a bit dark. I might end up going with some form of army painter blue base then thinned akhellian green over the top. Straight akhellian over grey seer is kind of too dark for what I'm going for. More tests needed!
