my blood angel successors have a history of fighting tyranids. how would i model this?
I AM THE THE ANGEL'S WING!!! FEAR ME FOES OF SANGUINIUS!!!
A gaint neon sign above them saying die tyrinids? But seriously...Put some nid body parts on them for trophies like a nid claw dagger or a extended carapace on the shoulder!
Fighting 'nids eh? well here's some stuff to help you along.
These are meant to be the new Ultramarines Tyranid Hunters, but the general idea is the conversions that make them pros at killing 'nids and even if you dont use traits is looks good I think the sgt is pretty cool looking myself
Hope this inspires you and good luck!
Qui est Mortis? Lol, the rep... neggatized for something... lol that nobody payed attention too... Lol Goodbye all, BTW This is permanent goodbye so save some bandwidth mods delete this account :D :evil: :D :evil: :D
Skulls hanging from belts, standing on their dead bodies, replace parts of your armour with their carapace (shoulder pads like Radeonis suggested are a good way), claw marks on your armour... there are lots of things. Let your imagination run riot.
You could buy those UM 'Nid hunters models, but they are very UM oriented (You could file off the UM logos, though) and really they aren't too... Anti-Nid oriented. Scratches here, a claw there, nothing really.
Those conversions are great, follow some of those. Especially the Gaunt heads for the backpack, those are cool. Consider a carnifex head "hood ornament" as well, though warrior/ravener heads do just fine as well.
just hang 'nid junk off them
my friend collects tau so i have bits of kroot hanging of my stuff and it look nice

Either hang things off them or have weaponry made from 'nid parts like scything claw sword and (as was mentioned) random carapace as armour. I saw one conversion which used the majority of a ripper as a pistol, you could try doing that.
They shall be my Imperial Guard and they shall know some fear...
You can model them however you want.Let your creation go wild and just have fun.But basically you just want to have trophies all over the place,and put nid bits over their armor.And if you want to be a bit more extravagant you can model nids parts into their armor and into their weapons,like have claws and sythes for bayanets,etc.
As everyone is saying ... and is quite obvious ... try modelling tyranid parts to the model. This should be quite discrete if you don't want the model to look like a tyranid itself! Good ways to do this is to 'build' parts of tyranids into weapons and decorations on the model, such as crests onto helmets (not too big) or the famous ripper head for power weapons or character embrodery on shoulder-pads.
If you do this in a good way, with a bit of green stuff and good imagination for help, you should get a good-looking unit (or army) of tyranid-hunters not looking like their enemies themselves.
Putting tyranids on the bases of the models could work, but should be used quite lightly, since over-doing this really ends up messy. Try putting small things like rippers or shot-off limbs covered in the 'base-theme' of the army. Covered and coloured in sand, snow-covered, dusted and bleaked. Not half-alive covered in blood and ichor, since this won't march with the rest of the model.
Some really sweet conversions I've seen include a Tyrants head and putting it on the end of a predator barrel. That same tank was littered with stealer arms and some Lictor claws that pertruded out of the turret. Looked really bad ass. But in terms of marines, using basic gaunt pieces can make any army look killer.
