Was speaking to a mate the other day about Proxy armies and i came up with the idea of a Tyranids army but using plants as a replacement... the spirit/idea of it is based on the Book/tv series/movie "The Day of the Triffids".
the story is (loosely for those to young etc ) A meteor shower rains down on earth blah blah the next day due to the effects from the lights everyone is blinded except for our hero of the story who was recovering from eye surgery from a triffid encounter- triffids sorta spit a toxin at your face that blinds you if I recall correctly (he had bandages over his eyes the night of the shower) and all these plants are rising up and killing humans that come near them (blindly stumbling into them ... )
Anyways that's the basis of the idea... these plants are kinda like nids that come to a planet and swarm it and take over....
I was wondering what lines of GW models ( I know they're wont be many at all...) could be used
i was thinking sylvaneth type models and some 3rd party foliage (those new fish tank fluro plants everyone is using as basing materials nowadays come to mind, also GW terrain tree's etc...
I was going to use specific plant type models to represent specific Tyranid species like -
Dryads would be genestealers, tree lords would be trygons,Carnifexes or swarmlords etc … you get the idea..
asking for idea's that Tyranid players might have on certain units etc...
it's a funsies army that I might look into building way down the track.
