Tyranids, Tervigon Update!

The main comment I had about the start of my Tervigon was that it looked too much like a big Carnifex, it was true, but I was stumped. I needed to add a row of spine nubs along the center of the back, but I just couldn't come up with a good solution to the birthing chamber. until now!

Ravener kit to the rescue! hahahaaa! Seriously that kit comes with 12 chests for 3 dudes, so lots of left overs.

I thought about adding a large carnifex spike out the front of the birthing chamber curved up under the chin, a side profile would make it look like the hive guard, but I'm not sure. I also thought about using the barbed strangler sac and tube attached under the hip with the tube going to where the back spike is on the birthing chamber, but meh, not sure about that either. With the Mawloc jaws on each side, they look like broken ribs, kind of like the codex picture for the Tervigon, which is always cool.

I removed the crushing claws so you can have a good look at the birthing chamber.  There is still work to do. Anyway, here's the latest update, what do you think?

Tyranids, Harpy!

Here is the Harpy. Using the left over bits from the trygon kit used to make the Tervigon, a Carnifex tail and body, 2 venomcannons (but you could easily use barbedstranglers if you would like.), and of course balrog wings. I also used a pair of spinefists for the spore-bomb-bay doors, right where the rod goes in.

Speaking of the rod for the flying base, I used a #6 machine screw and some washers for added weight so the thing wouldn't tip over on me. inside the Harpy is a half inch long #6 standoff, that sucker is screwed into the Carnifex body with a short #6 screw through the hole in the Carnifex body that the little knob on the tail section fits into.

I think im going to add some poison sacs to the tail peice, right where the talon is, kind of like the trygon tail. I was also thinking of doing something like the garoyles, with a spike on the nose.

anywho, here's the pics!

Tyranids, Tervigon!

Here are the claws from the previous Tyranid post, put on the Tervigon. She's still a bit of a work in progress, I've been thinking about some additions: maybe breaking the old 6 limb rule and putting some small warrior talons front chest, or coming up with an actual termagant hatching thing, or eggsac or something. I also plan on putting it on a large Trygon base with some gaunts, because I'm really big on the suffix's determine base size, Trygon-Tervigon, Carnifex-Tyranofex.

Anyway, here she is thus far. Trygon body and big claws, Carnifex leds/tail/head. The mandibles are the Trygon prime mandibles cut down, keeping a bit of the tube thats on it to go reach behind the head a bit. I magnetized the inside a little so I could attach a clusterspine carapace peice if I wanted to, or just attach some sort of back mounted cannon and make them Tyrannofex's.
