No, smaller and has eyes I think. I will take pictures for identification when I'm next scaling the peaks of Mount Greyshame :tu:

There was the original lanky hive guard with two left arms forming a shield on the same side, who were replaced by the big beasties in the previous photo, then with the plastic sprue. 

 

I've located my nids in storage and done a quick headcount of some - about 10 more gaunts and a few more bits and bobs than I recalled. Pretty sure I have like 4 spare carnifexes - I think I wanted to convert one to a Malanthrope using the Hive Tyrant flying tail and some other gribbly bits.

That sounds like it might be him Xen, I should be around at some point this week to get that picture to confirm. Four fexes is a good number, should provide all the mid-weight monster needs of your fleet smile.png

Yea, One will will become Old One Eye at least, he seems like he had a great run in 8th, and if GW are cranking abilities and stuff up to the max for 9th, I'm imagining he's going to be an unkillable regenerating battering ram of doom. He already seems pretty good if you use the regen 1 wound per turn hive fleet - 2W/ turn back seems tasty.

He's one of the classics, probably the best known nid so he should be on everyone's cards I think. If he is decent on the table top all the better :P

Looked in another box and found another 55 Hormagaunts lurking there. Think that's why I knew I needed more scything talons...sweat.gif

 

Added to the list.

That's how I'll be doing it - my first post serves as an inventory of all the nids I have, and I can check my progress on crossing models off the list as I paint them.

I’ve made a couple of orders for my Nids!

My first order is still being picked (GW Exclusive stuff) but my second order (which included the Start Collecting box for £45!!)
has just arrived today! I was supposed to be working on my bruv’s Primaris but couldn’t resist working on the new shiny stuff!
I’ve converted a Lictor out of the Broodlord! Really pleased with it, I’ll put up an update once it’s painted.

This was what I was going to do with one of my spares - keen to see what yours will look like!

My pile just started since I'm dipping my toes in for Kill Team. I've got 12 hormagants, 4 termagants, and 3 warriors. If I like them and want to continue beyond Kill Team I'm sure my pile will grow.

I'm sure it will; the pile rarely gets smaller laugh.png I need to reassess mine as I rummaged a little yesterday and found the original metal Hive Tyrant and that one of the metal fexes was actually Old One Eye. When I get time I will need to sort it out properly as a lot of bits are all in together so it's hard to know what's what. Or what goes where confused.gif

I suppose mine is a black pile of shame, as I got as far as undercoating it.


...my Pile of Shame is white, at least for Nids. My Marine Pile of Shame is grey, but at least it's primer grey and not raw plastic grey.

I can take a Pyrovore* and seven spore mines off the pile of shame as of today, but I added 12 Hormagaunts. :(

* He's pretending to be a Biovore, that thing looks like it got hit with a tranquilizer but hasn't quite passed out yet.

As long as you get painting on other models to equalise the gain - then it won't count :P

Something managed to infiltrate my house...+1 Lictor...

 

This is absolutely fine: As a Predator fan, the invisible stealth killer aliens are one of my favourite units both model and lore-wise, and the goal is to have a full force org chart of them.

I found a small toy shop on a country ramble in Bakewell (home of the tarts/puddings) yesterday and seen the two checkout attendants were reading the SM codex teehee.gif  we had a good chat and they had some stuff at a nice discount, so snagged another 3 zoanthropes... some of my favorite models/units anyway. I'm just wondering whether to make these as floaty snake things, or as walking old school type ones, and make some venomthropes instead. I realised I'm slowly running out of warrior legs, and if I make 3 zoans, 2 more lictors, I wont have many left for another large warrior unit...

I had a bit of an impulse purchase and picked up the Start Collecting box, so another 8 'stealers, a Broodlord, and a Trygon Prime. The cover pic just does not do that Trygon justice, it's a beautiful model and it's taller than my Keeper of Secrets.

I knocked out 12 Hormagaunts over the last couple of evenings, and was gifted 3x Hive Guard for XMas! The 3 I have are already the bane of my opponents, a unit of 5-6 will be murder!

Now they can fire in combat, the 4x Devourer dakkafex is looking pretty tasty again - no longer has to take a melee weapon to be effective there, and can't be counter-charged ti nullify its firepower.

Picked up a Lictor and The Red Terror in trade, but I've already painted them so they don't count.

I also got another 10 Gargoyles for Christmas, but I got another 10 Termagaunts painted so they've been offset already.

...checking my records I seem to have painted up seven more Genestealers and their Infestation Nodes since the last time I posted as well. Forgot about those.

My wife has discovered my pile of shame

So I have to at least build some before she loses her rag!

I made a 2k pts list so I’ll be building to that.

To finish it up I will be doing 2 Genestealers, 10 Termagants and 3 more Hive Guard.

Not much I reckon. Can’t wait for lockdown to end so I can get some games in with people over the age of 13!!!
