Xenith, I don’t currently have OOE! What I do have is the left over claws from the Exocrine kit. I see some kitbashing in my near future.

 

 

Perfect, I dont have the haruspex spares, I was going to make mine with the Tervigon spare claws after I made a Tyrannofex. I think the outsized claws will look ace as OOE - Think I seen some conversions using the stone crusher carnifex claws which were really well done.

Thanks Xenith, hopefully it’ll look as cool as it does in my head!!

I’m thinking massive claws and he should be spikier than the average Carnifex. I’ve already built his head in preparation!

I’ve made an order for the next wave in the Swarm’s evolution, just have to wait for it to be delivered!

My Tyranid order has arrived!
 
I already had a Broodlord so decided to make myself a Lictor!
 
I had bitz left over from my Tyranid Prime conversion so this conversion has been rattling around in my head for a while.
 
Here's the pics:
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks for looking! Next up Old One Eye!

I finished my Old One Eye conversion!
 
I just love the Carnifex kit, it is so easy to model and has a lot of options considering the size of it.
 
The claws were left over from the Exocrine kit, I think they're for the Haruspex (hope I got that right)
 
The building took about 20 minutes which is something of a record for me! It usually takes me ages working on most GW and Forgeworld kits!
 
I painted it in sub assemblies and built it at the end, definitely the right approach as it allowed me to get in at the underbelly. 
 
I learnt the hard way after fully assembling my last Carnifex.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Overall I'm really pleased with Old One Eye and I'm looking forward to trying him out on the table.

Thanks Mithrilforge!

Glad you like the Nids.

Sadly I’m not adding to them for a little while. I’m currently working on my brother’s Imperial Fist successors and my beloved Krieg!

There’s only so many hours in a day!

Thanks for the interest.

Ok people, I have a pair of wings for an Hive Tyrant and a spare Trygon..

I’m thinking of combining the two to make a scary Winged Tyrant conversion!

Question is, will it work? Or will the Trygon be too large?

Another question, what’s the best Winged Tyrant load out?

Help and advice will be appreciated.

I'm no expert, but I think you need to decide on the role. A winged Tyrant can easily support forward elements (synapse in particular) so maybe you want some shooting to further this support role and keep him safer. That said it is a shooting edition so maybe combat is the safer place to be and the Tyrant is decent in combat so it's a shame to miss out. I'm interested in hearing of load outs and experiences too :)

I don’t have the Sabres as I used them on my Swarmlord.

I’m thinking of using the Fleshborer Hive from the Tyrannofex kit.

They could double as Monstrous Scything Talons or any of the ranged Monstrous Bio-Cannons plus they look cool! I reckon with the Trygon body the size won’t be an issue.

I’ll have to raid my bitz box to see what other options I have.

I’m coming back to work on Hive Fleet Ariagnee!

I had a spare Trygon kit and a full bitz box so thought I’d make something a bit different.

Here’s the results:

Yea man, it's a bunch of the coolest bits from different kits and works perfectly. Ages ago I had dreams of a 'snake' hive fleet, with most things on trygon or ravener-like bodies, this would have fit in perfectly!

Xenith, cheers! A snake Hive Fleet would look so cool!

Mithrilforge, thanks!

Brother Captain Vajarion, thanks mate! I put a lot of thought into colour schemes.
I usually work with my favourite paints (Vallejo Ww2 Field Grey and Rakarth Flesh!) I try and incorporate them into all my projects somewhere!

Thanks Reigart! I’m pretty happy with it!

I’m going to save my Nids for the Bug’s life painting event.

Rakarth flesh isn’t a surprise, but it’s amusing how well field grey works on the bugs. The thought behind the scheme colors shows well. Excited to see more of these during the event!

Cheers Brother Captain Vakarian!

I’ve just come back from a week on holiday with the fam, caught loads of crabs so I’m chomping at the bit to get started on my Tyranids again!

Hopefully Xenith’s event won’t be too far away!
