This is what I have so far, for the most part. There's actually about 9 of the Vanguard Drones now, spread between two types - feeder tentacles (shown here) and pyro-acid batteries not shown).
...and my test-paint ship, a Ramsmiter Kraken:
There's another Kraken, this time a Pyro-acid armed one, and I'm busy working on a Hive Ship so I can actually field the fleet. Any C&C or advice is welcomed, on either the modelling, painting, or fleet setup level, or anything else you can think of.
Cool! Whats the theme of all this? Are all your models flyers?
what parts did you use?
Those look good. I think that using the parts the way you have is good, it adds details to them that make them all cool and buggy. Reppy for you, I'm in a generous rep mood today.
@Carkeh - As the others have said, they are indeed Battlefleet Gothic models. The escorts could technically be counted as flyers as they can land on planets during certain missions, but that's another story...
@Monkey - Thanks, I'm glad you like them. I've been noticing a bit of a resurgence in BFG lately, which helped prompt me to start these.
@Wraith - I think I like your description of 'Nid ships better than the official one. It really makes you stop and think about the terror of seeing a hundred metre long skinless acidic slug/maggot speeding at your ship (Pyro-acid, for those who are wondering).
@Leech - Thanks, that was very much the idea I was going for. I had been thinking about scratch building ships for one of the other races for a while, but the tiny details they need scattered about to make them look halfway decent kept putting me off. First rep in ages too.
@antique_nova - I could write the parts in a big block of prose, but I think a list would be easier. So, can we expect to see some 'Nid ships from you?
Warrior body, tail, and 2 scything talons.
Four gaunt spinefists.
Two small hormagaunt talons (the middle set).
Two genestealer scything talons.
Carnifex scything talon's 'thumb claw'.
Hormagant body, minus hind legs (keep the hooves for the jaw/beak).
Two small hormagaunt talons (the middle set) from the same body.
Gaunt adrenal gland.
Gaunt devourer (for the main body).
Two hormagaunt scything talons. (Pyro-acid version below has two gaunt spinefists instead).
I got a little frustrated with ripping the old Carnifex to pieces, so I made a few more Escorts instead, this time Vanguard Drones with pyro-acid batteries:
im gonna need some pictures to see what they look like!
looks like i will have a limitless horde of Kraken and Vanguard Escort ships!Maybe not see, but i might two sets of gaunts and make you drool when i have about 40 of them
