I'll need to decide soon before the list of models needing painting gets too long... nothing else has jumped out at me so maybe I should just go with the black
With a list to aim for it's also time for the big boys, but before I can get to anything I need to build them. As the metal Hive Tyrant doesn't come with monstrous talons I'm looking at the old pair I have plenty of:
I assume they're for the old Carnifex, but I'm not sure on sizing. The upper Carnifex ones may be too large for the slimmer Tyrant, and I'll need them for the fex, so should I be looking at the secondary fex talons? I'll have them spare as this will be a bio-weapon slot for my Carnifex, does anyone know what scale talons I should be looking at?
Since I had the fex sprues out it was inevitable I started work here too:
I'm wondering if the hip joint is worth magnetising to aid with transporting the model? It'd probably need to be a decent sized magnet to account for the model being top heavy but it'd be an easy enough job. I don't think I'll both with arms as they'll likely stay as my big stabby and big shooty units, but I did consider the carapace and head as other easy magnetisations.
That said, it feels like a waste as I don't think anyone really bothers with representing the choices? There are so many variations but not all of the bits look that great to me. Should I just carry on with picking bits I like here? Especially as I'll be busy enough GSing the models and magnetising the HT's gun choices (as can see this changing, plus it's the big guy so he's special). All input appreciated as always
