i just got my second tyrant8X and now have to decide how to give it wings. The first problem is that I now have both a 3rd ed. tyrant and a 4th ed. tyrant and I don't know which one will look better with wings. I also am unsure as to how to make the wings for it. Right now, I am leaning towards using either balrog wings (LOTR) or bloodthirster wings. Does anyone have any recomendations--(i mainly just want really really big wings).
The 4th edition needs the wings, trust me, I undertook this project not too long ago, and anfter 50+ hours of conversion and painting, it is a beast that is impressive and intimidating, and as such draws lots of attention (not the best thing when that attention is in the form of massed fire, but hey). Anyway as far as wings, I found the fantasy dragon wings worked great and were perfectly scaled, especially when I modeled the second set of scything tallons onto the the joint in the wing.
Good luck with your Flyrant.

See, I'd say do it the other way around for exactly that reason, the 4th ed. is much bigger and looks much heavier than the 3rd ed. Tyrant, so I'd go for the lighter, smaller one as the flyrant.
Basically, the quick way of doing it is to use the plastic dragon wings (or the balrog wings, but then you run into issues if you want to take it to an official GW event), cut off the big fat lump at the bottom of the arm, and glue them into the top arm hole on the HTs body. Then you can GS over any unsightly holes, and Robert is your mother's brother.
Either that, or look at the FW one for inspiration. That thing is awesome.

I suggest that you use the Balrog wings. They are lighter than the Bloodthirster ones and won't have the paint chipped off them so easily as the Bloodthirster's metal wings. You can try the dragon wings but to be honest they aren't that good. I have only found them to really complement the dragons they are meant for on one occasion, that was with the Zombie dragon and the wings needed alot of work, converting the wings to look Zonbified.
The Balrog wings are your best bet for quality and realism. You can add bio-weapons to the wings by removing the little spike/thumb parts on the wings and sticking whatever you want there.
