I told myself that I wouldn’t do but I did. So I started a nidzilla army a couple of weeks ago. I was inspired by the Xenomorph look after watching aliens over the weekend. Currently what I have been messing with as have built/painted are the following:

Old One Eye
2x Neurothrope
1x Malanthrope
2x Maleceptors
3x Screamer Killers
2x Mawlocs/Trygon Prime
3x Mieotic Spores

Still waiting to be shipped by FW,
2x Stone Crusher Carnifex /w Flail
1x Stone Crusher Carnifex /w Wrecker Claws
15x Ripper Swarms
2x Scythe Hierodules

We will need to see some pictures of course ;) Have you sorted the colours and methods for the scheme yet or just the plan so far? I think you could really make it pop with some shiny black carapace and the like :tu:

The revised scythed hierodules actually look good. No longer LoW and their points and profiles are good

Is that glue you've used? Excellent addition that really brings the theme home, nicely done :tu:

Looking great! You’ve really captured the horror of the Xenomorphs from the Aliens franchise!

I love these! Really like the Malanthrope in particular, one of the best uses of cotton-wool smoke/mist/fog I've seen in a while.

I come here to discuss and find out about Warhammer 40,000 with people of every ethnicity, sexuality, country and yes, as sickening as it is, even Eldar players.

I have an Instagram too, if you like that sort of thing!

I used Hot Glue... I had to be quick about it

 

Looking great! You’ve really captured the horror of the Xenomorphs from the Aliens franchise!

 

Thank you

Thank you for that, TBH I was kinda worried how itll look.

While two Dimas are better than one, I like the theme of having one in the list for the sole reason that it looks most like the queen from 'Aliens' to me.
