Been busy over the weekend and did some more work on my one of three raiders.
The gun I'm pretty pleased with. It's magnetised so that it swivels but also so it can be taken off for transport.
Then - far from complete - I have the tentacles which will link the control seat Wrack to the rest of the ship. It's slow going but I think it's worth it.

I also took the time to make my unit of four haywire Scourges. Did I just buy for boxes so that I could get four of the same weapon? Maybe. Am I using nothing other than legs, heads and guns from them? Also maybe. But my bits box overfloweth so you know...
I am using Tyranid Gargoyle bits so that they fit the theme.
I love the tails and honestly if I were to go under the Haemonculi's knife there is no way in heck I'd not get a tail. I need to work a little on spines for some of them. But the end result should keep em all looking like the ones that are done.

They look awesome dude Smile absolutely love the Gargoyle wings tying them into the Tyranid-hybrid theme, and the tails are genuinely perfect Smile they give them that slightly more animalistic look which is really really cool. Might have to steal that for my exodites!

That raider! Oh man. I heard there were some heamonculi that were experimenting with grafting tyranid bits. But it seems they have almost perfected it. Absolutely brutal looking.

Thank you. I'm very glad you think so.

I just have to figure out how to do a raider in a similar style hahaha.

Good morning,

Figured I'd prove I wasn't dead. I've set up a production line for the Raiders on Tuesday.
Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 Raider_Prodline

I also got some bits on the side to be the Torment Grenade Launchers. Just need to sculpt the tentacles around them and hook the driver up a little more and we should be golden.
Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 Raider_Driver

Now I'd ask for some input, I bought those massive rectangle bases - you know the ones terrorgheist used to sit on *single tear* - and thought I'd do scenic bases for this Kabal.
I have a choice though, Spawning pools and nid bits from their subspace realm.
OR
Battle diorama.

What do we think would look best?

These look chuffing awesome Wink unlike the Americans, I use the word 'awesome' properly, as in 'this thing inspires awe' Smile

Can't wait to see them finished Smile

Oh, and I have no idea about which diorama style thing would be best. Which one are you most excited about?

Thank you very much.

I kind of like the idea of the Tyranid spawning pools or like the inside of a haemonculi lab or something. But I am not sure if that is "Too much nid" for this project.

No such thing as 'too much nid' for this Wink I say do it Smile

The thing I was thinking of doing for my exodites is making some custom objective markers. Could be some cool ideas for your dudes that you could use the spawning pool idea for Smile

It's your army dude, "Too much Nid" for your army would be like "Too many Undead" for mine, that's the THEME! Push it and have fun with it!
(Have you thought of running beastpacks with Tyranid conversions as the beasts?)

In the new Fracture of Biel Tan book Lelith is having a massive duel in the arena with loads of modified tyranids worked on by the haemonculus covens, so the beast pack idea could work really well, mixing talos and tetanus parts together to create so. Frightening monsters Smile

@Ynneadwraith
Yeah that's not a bad idea. I on thinking about it again don't think raiders would fit in the lab part of the Hae-lab so I think I'll do the nid stuff for both base and markers.

@Rhivan
I had some chimera conversions in my last iteration of the DE but this list is 750 points and themed around the Terrorgheists - can you see what I loved yet - and their wounding through leadership.
So it's all torment grenades, phantasm launchers and armour of misery. It's a pretty uncompetitive list but it'll make for a good story when it works right. No venom, DL, raider ravager spam for me. No sir.
This also means until I up the points there won't be any beast masters in this one. Though it'd give me an excuse to have a gargoyle ridden hellion as a beast master.

@Spellcheck2001
Potentially yeah but my list at the moment does not have room for 'em. I still have a but tone of spoopy harlequins to convert as well. I'll add it to the project list though.

Wow... I'm floored by this conversion! Damn man... such an inspired conversion. I can't wait to see where this goes. Great stuff, super ambitious. Keep it up!

Thanks that means a bunch.
I am in the middle of so many projects that this thing is going to be all over the place.
But I have one heck of a doozy lined up for the Ravager, which is part of me Feb vow.

So my obsession with Tyranids is likely bordering the fetishistic. Which makes sense because Kerrigan was my first love... An area of contention between my boyfriend and I hahahaha.

So here we have the beginnings of my Kabalites. I need to tidy them up, make them look more organic etc. But this is the theme.
Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 Kabalite_WiP

Then some progress on the Raider Fleet. I've decided to not attach the 'helmsman' until I have tentacled - totally a word - the hull up a load.

Love the Covenite footsoldiers Smile perfect blend of Covens style with the extra limbs being Tyranid Wink

Ooh! Bet you could make some kickass looking Incubi if you can get Boneswords the right size Smile so much potential for gribbly covens Tyranid counts-as stuff Smile

Raider fleet is looking great too Smile

And I'm back baby!
Jeepers life got more than a little hectic - though I won't bore you with the details.

With my rebirth comes a load of news, some of it good, some of it bad and some of it just that... News:

- The goods news is that I have got one heck of an order arriving tomorrow, all the bits I could conceivably need to boost this party to the statues of a real coven.

- The bad news is that, in the - almost - two years I have been dead, my raiders have gone missing. No doubt lost in house moves or w/e.

- The news (which could be good or bad depending on your point of view) is that - since I have all the bits to complete more of my Wracks, Grotesques and Pain engines/Parasite engines - that I was going to do sort of tutorials on them? Whether people want em of not.
I've never done a tutorial before though, how would people - of those who'd want them - like them done? I have cameras, phones, webcams, what ever. Do people find step by step photos easier or would people want a video? I don't know. I do not follow instructions all that often haha.

First! Another twenty Wracks, so that I can fulfil a Battalion's troop tax!

Well my stuff arrived late, through no fault of dear Papa GeeDubs. Because I live in the 'Highlands' I don't count as mainland Scotland for a lot of delivery times... I guess it's the price I pay for solitude and stunning views.

Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 000-ProjectStart

From this haul I will be able to construct twenty Wracks, three Grotesques (though I only need one) and both a Talos and a Cronos. It'll also add to my bits box quite considerable and help with the new revised plan I have for the Kabal and Cult sections of the Army.

A box of Tree-Revenants and a box of Wracks will make you 5 'Blood Dolls'.  

Tutorial on building them to follow later tonight or tomorrow afternoon!

A few updates in this post.

Firstly ten more Wracks, it's not twenty, but it's something.
Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 002-Wracks

Then, the tutorial, I decided to spoiler it, because jeepers, people might not want it clogging up the page.
For clarity, the instructions will be below the image to which they relate.
Tutorial:
 

Thirdly, another Talos... which is why I only have ten wracks built. I needed to work on something larger, my eyes were crossing.
Myca's Surgeon Slab 2 - Page 3 003-WIPTalos-001

Trying to get the poses different is hard, because they are mono-posed models. But with some pins, hacksaws, greenstuff - and a little blood - anything is possible.  

I look forward to working more on them tomorrow.

Myca.

Nice!!!

are the shoulders and thighs of the talos the standard ones from the Drycha model? I really quite like the look of them, but can't tell if you created yourself.
