    Flyrant

    I had some success with some plastic gargotlyes and after being inspired by some other conversions i thought id make something a bit bigger...





    And the little gargoyles;

    Looks very cool so far. What else are you going to do with the wings?

    The gargoyles look great!

    Wow, great conversions!

    The Plastic gargoyles make me want to give them a go myself, and the tyrant just looks awesome.

    They are cool looking. I like the shape of the wings on the Tyrant, they are very interesting in the way you have done them. The work on the Gargoyles in good too. That you have all the wings in a variety of positions is good as it makes them look like they are all flapping their wings and flying along. I suggest that you deal with the mouldlines on the Tyrant as they are very obvious.

    I will be brutally honest here for a second, I love the gargoyles as their arms have been turned into wings, where as the flyrant has wings (from what I can see) attached to the end of his arms which gives him a very odd look. I would of personally given him a pair of smaller wings on the back and large arm/wings where you have them, but not at the end of the arm. other than the position of the wings its frigging massive and sweet!

    metal gargoyles... i do not like

    too heavy, too breaky
    your conversions i do like.
    i make mine out of plastic using good ol aroldite resin, nice n tough and.. not heavy!

    however i shall post some pics up as they still require quite abit of careful work to make.
    the great thing it is that you can model conversions on an original, then cast it in a single piece. much less breaky, also certain biomorphs/bioweapons that you seem to be constantly running out of eg talons, rending, cannons.. while a surplus of devourers threaten to take over your bits box.
    i really hate it when models break, especially hormagaunts and their poorly designed footing. Not a game goes past where i dont have one more hormagaunt thats no longer attached to its base

    great tyrant, good job with the green stuff!

    I think that having the wings on teh end of the arms is fine for a pivot point, but you need massive tendons connecting the pivt points to the body - both back and forth, and these need to be attached in a web of muscle from about half-way along the wing (dynamics of a little fly are going to be hugely different to teh dynamics of a massive creature like a Flyrant, treat it more like a bird - huge muscle mass to pull each wing beat...)

    just thought of one thing that would be a bummer.
    The new line of sight rules, everything will be able to see and shoot that tyrant because its mounted so high.
    My friend has a squad of assault marines that he doesnt use anymore because he mounted them on flying bases to make them look nice, but line of sight now puts them way higher to be shot at, is rather annoying rule because its not like theyre actually a flying unit.

    No matter what the new line of sight rules do, you must continue with this. Your greenstuff skills are formidable, so you've also earnt a rep. Keep up the good work, man.
