Thanks guys!

DjHg was the one who sent me the goodies and had no idea he sent a second hand carnifex for me to mess around with :O Drew this for him for a big thanks! http://krewl-rain.deviantart.com/art/Chocoberry-Niddy-111826702
My not be getting new stuff for a while thanks to the credit card chaos gods, but I can list some things I have in mind doing.

Melee Tyrant with Guard. I want it to hold two bone swords and have some smaller scything talons below it since it slices and dices with the two swords. I really want the boneswords to come back more then just a psychic power next codex. I really feel they are a symbol of leadership on tyrants. I still have no idea how to make some guard, but an idea will hit eventually.

Uberwarrior made from a ravager and some lictor parts. It will look like a link between a warrior and a hive tyrant if it turns out the way I see it in my head. Could probaly play it as a tyrant too but thats cheating LoS to hell xP. Have extra back vent bits too which were sent with the surprise fexy and acid maw heads. The leftover lictor bits may be the base for a tyrant guard.

Assassin Broodlord mentioned in another thread. He will have a long whip like tail and have an actiony pose, and some work to the face too.

Hi KrewL! I think they look pretty good. I'm particularly fond of the tyrant (great pose) and the zoanthrope (nice little conversion for added gribblyness).

I quite like your army it has a very striking paint job, it stands out. I also like the conventions.

With one heck of a weird day behind me, managed to finish my tyrant guards. I will get better pictures soon so here is a flash preview of them and a very scribbly first concept doodle. The design did change a bit along the way and didn't need to use a Lictor as a base. Ended up as a Warrior base with spare bits and a lot of sculpting.

Preview of bad flashness since its 4am/bad camera/no natural light and DjHg wanted to see them hehe:
http://img182.imageshack.us/img182/272/ ... review.jpg

And the scribbly concepts:
http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/9161/roughtgsketch.jpg
http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/2758 ... ribble.jpg = xD

The big things that changed in the design was the head and tail. The head ended up more shield like with some mandibles and a overbite lower jaw. The tail is like a 3rd arm and the guard can slam the end spikes into the ground for added stability from a big blast. It is also a counter wight to the large shields on the upper arms. Has a stinger if I want to take implant attack too. For flesh hooks the holes in the shield house spikes.

Cool. Even though it is a little hard to see in those photos (as you said), I like 'em! :wink:

Ok now do one in full defense mode (with complete foldy down shield action in place).

Please?

Also... if I steal your idea, it's only flattery!

=P

Yeah 3rd one will be like that. 3rd Warrior in that box was made into CC so I have a 5 strong brood. Probably gonna have to counter weight it too. And glad I can inspire hehe. Now lets hope I don't get bit by more bats, rabies shots = sadface.

I like your tyrant's devourer. I also really love those shield guards. Very original.
