Conversion - Tyranid Prime

Jason and I have committed to a 1 week showdown. To encourage each of us to put time into building our armies, we have committed to building and painting a model this week. It will go on for a few weeks so anyone is welcomed to join in! Just commit (to yourself just as much as us) and you will be part of the weekly reports!

I am committing my Prime Warrior which was converted from the standard Nid Warrior with home-made Boneswords. I took the swords from Ogre Bulls from the Fantasy range and snipped them so that they join in with the Spinefist arms. I then covered the joins using greenstuff, plastic cement and a spare armour plate. The result is what you see here.

Did a forked tail in liew of the bigger creatures

    I'm re-assembling my old Space Marines, and will be painting them up too. I'll be glad to join up and commit to a 10 man Tac Squad to be done up in the Dark Angels scheme :)
