So I was talking in the LO chatroom and the subject of Orks looting a Carnifex came up. Being a Tyranid player beforehand and moving towards the Orks, this sounded both awesome and hilarious. I figured my army would wind up with a bunch of Lootas in it, so going for Death Skullz seemed appropriate. I figure this looted Carnifex will be a "counts as" for a Deff Dread with either three or four DCCW. I'm not done with the conversion, just the paint. I will later build a howdah or something to rest on the Carnifex's back to hold an Ork dangling a Grot out in front of the 'fex on a pole, much like people dangling a carrot out in front of a mule.
Anyhow, here's the painted Carnifex, quite unhappy from being splashed with the Death Skullz lucky color. The Orks didn't have a Stompa or Gargant handy to hold it down as well as they should've so they resorted to tossing buckets of paint and paint-covered Grots at it. The finished product will have a Grot totally immersed in blue lying on the base.
I think what I love most about the blue paint is how well it thickened, making it really look like paint separate from the Tyranid's skin and carapace.
Heh, looks like a modern artists lovechild. I cant wait to see the finish product, seems like it will be neat.
For some reason I imagine an Ork cowboy trying to ride that thing...
This sounds awesome, even more so with an Ork cowboy! Really looking forward to seeing the finished thing!
Oh yeah, you have to do the Ork Cowboy now, its just too good of an idea to pass up!
