Got a question regarding Rule 1, which will determine whether I have a viable entry or not:

If it's gonna use model parts, 51% of those parts have to be GW materials, correct?

Using this as motivation to finish a plan I had...

...Using Starship Troopers Rippler Bugs to make Flying Warriors is toast then.

I might come up with something else. If I do, it will be posted.

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to check in and see if everyone is making progress and goad those who are hibernating into production.

Just remember, by entering you could win a free Trygon and you'll also have a cool and original brood for your army! Think of all the comments it will bring when you put it on the table!

My progress has been a bit slow due to stress, but the assembly line is on its way. Doing 4 at a time seems the way to go without going bonkers lol.

Like my T-Fex, their gun is mounted in their chest area. Their middle arms hook into the ammo sacs and their main pair of arms are now used for locomotion and clawing in CC. I always felt the devourer looked awkwardly large on the gaunts and always wondered how they managed to hold that thing without falling over and attacking in CC would be awkward too.

I will have photos up eventually.

What do spiders raptors, and termagants have in common? Well if every thing goes as planned you'll see soon enough.

Annoyingly I'm still waiting on parts, I should have a minimum size brood done in time though. Once I have everything it should come together in a day or two.

Also doing the bitz dance...
However, Once I get Oni's Boneswords and KrewL RaiN's arms I will be making wings for mah Shrikes!

Their feet are just like my Tyranid Prime feet so counts as Scytals! (Actually made out of Hormag Scytals)

Going with Pterodactyl inspiration so hopefully they'll come out looking like flying dinosaur Tyranids.

While I'm not technically taking part...

I'll be making myself a brood of worm-like gaunts or hormagaunts, I think-- I have to experiment. I'm waiting on a package from America with a few nice bits, including 5 hive guard, 12 more warriors and a couple boxes of gargoyles.

Canada post strike = I cant get the bits to DJ arghhh. Supposedly the strike should get resolved this week, but then if that happens, add another week for shipping and yeah, he wont get them in time :(

As for my guys, I still need to finish green stuffing. I will try painting a few, but I doubt I will be able to paint them all in time. Just 4 of them to show what they look like painted.

I'll probably have the parts tomorrow. If not, i'll just go buy a box of 'stealers from the shop.

Edit: Scratch that. Papa nurgle has seen fit to give everyone in the house a virus, so i've been stuck at home, and unable to get parts. good luck to everyone else though.
