This thing is a Carnifex I made recently. I called the Razorfex because of it's big claws. they are the stonecrusher claws from Forge world though I just have them as crushing claws. I decided to use actual crushing claws as it's legs to give it a more insectoid feel so that it would fit in better with my scorpion themed hive fleet. The actual stonecrusher claws themselves were fun to paint as they provivded quite a few options. Basically they could be carapace or exoskeleton or something else. In the end I went for a very dark green which is similar to the carpace.
The twinlinked devourer was fun to do on the top of the Carnifex. I used parts froma barbed strangler and three devourers linked together to make it. I used green stuff to blend it to the carapace of the Carnifex. I also stuck on the end of the left arm of a Tyranid warrior venom cannon to the devourer which I painted as an eye to represent enhanced senses as a bio-targeter. The bag or bit in the end of the devourer came from a Tyranid warrior barbed strangler left arm.
I cut off those normal vents and replaced them with barbed strangler gun barrels. I put spikes onto the them and used green stuff to fill in the tops to show it has toxic miasma. I chose the tusked head as I haven't used it before and it seemed good for the job. I also stuck the adrenal gland onto the underside of the Carnifex as it won't fit on the spinebanks on it's back. I filled in the gap it made with carapace parts and green stuff. The tail was also elongated to give the new legs it has more space. A coat hanger wire and green stuff was all that was needed. Comment, questions, critcism welcome.

Not sure what to sa apart from "WOW" and then I'm not talking online games... Awesome model Leech.
Love the paintjob but unfortunately I have way too little experience of the Tyrranidrange to properly judge the conversionwork. I just assume it's equally great.
I then used goblin green and then scorpion green to give the stripes more colour and then finally a mix of scorpion green, yellow and white. The last thing to do was apply a strip of black paint as the pupil and use a very small amount of black paint around the edge to shade it a little.
The eye was given gloss varnish and then after about a day when it would be really dry I gave it gloss varnish again. Basically the whole effect is caused by a series of layers being applied to the eye. Thanks for the responses.
Well blast my man bits off and hang them in a tree!! That sure is a freaking awesome example of sheer awesome's awesome!
Ok...it's a wickedly cool 'fex that inspires me greatly(except for the cash of course...)

The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
The crusher claws areso small compared to the Ston crushers its not even funny. Good substitution and if your opponent whines just flip your nose at him and tel lhim to bugger off. ;Y
