    I came up with this idea due to the fact that I will start up an Alien Hunters attatchment for my IG as soon as it comes out. I want to have a tank with double treads (more Nid squishy action :shifty: ), a heavy stubber like the pintle storm bolter in the link below

    http://us.games-workshop.com/games/40k/imp...v/images/c3.jpg

    and lots of fun Nid parts. I was thinking of mounting a hive tyrant head on the main gun barrel, Termagaunt heads on the heavy bolters, Hormogaunt claws on the dozer blade, and some Genestealer heads mounted on the power plant in the rear like Chaos gun barrels. The pintle heavy stubber would be R/C, and I'd mount antennae and a suitable gun sight on it. To protect the driver, the vision slit would be sealed and painted a suitable color. I'd also add some =I= icons.

    So... yea or nay? I like to get the viewponts of others before I start a project that could be a huge waste of time and money.

    Sounds good to me i have no objections, but it might be a while before the xenos hunters come out, from what i hear 'nids are the next race to be redone.

    As a &#39;nids player. I&#39;d be a little impressed to see that. It&#39;d definetely be demoralizing to watch it mow down a brood or two, or take out a fex or tyrant....conversely, it&#39;d be highly gratifying to watch your tank burn should it be taken out by lucky shots or rending claws

    With regards to the conversions, you should mount the tyrant&#39;s head somewhere as a mantlepiece, if at all possible. I don&#39;t have a Leman Russ tank to look and see where best to place it. As for the other skulls, I would definetely place them decoratively around on the parts that stick out, or other flat surfaces. Post some pics as soon as you get them/ideas done .
    &quot;Can you put that in a memo and title it &#39;***** I already know&#33;&#39;&quot;

    Sarge: &quot;Get on with it, Griff.&quot;
    Griff: &quot;I&#39;d just like everyone to know: that I suck.&quot;
    Church: &quot;And?&quot;
    Griff: &quot;And that I&#39;m a girl...&quot;
    Church: &quot;What else?&quot;
    Griff: &quot;And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys.&quot;
    Sarge: &quot;This has to be the best surrender of all time.&quot;

    it sounds great , but i would steer clear of glueing nid bits to it . the way you portray all the nid bits it sounds like it would look like its actually part of a nid army , hard to believe but i think it would . just my advice

    It is not gonna be entireley covered with Nids... Maybe
    a gaunt or two leaping at it... I mean, I will have lots of
    spare parts with all the Nids I&#39;m ordering for it, so why
    not add a thematic base?

    Way I&#39;m going, I might as well make a diorama than a
    fighting piece.

    Anyway, it&#39;ll only have obviously long-dead parts on it.
    Rotting heads and severed limbs... stranger things have
    happened in the 40k universe (mysterious prices rising
    drastically included), but I highly doubt the Nids would
    ever use a vehicle, if that&#39;s what you&#39;re getting at.

    I started a Xeno hunter IG army a while back. The task of converting all my troopers to be sporting nid carapace armor was a bit overwhelming, but that step of the process is done. I decorated my leman russ demolisher with some nid bits, and it turned out nice; I know I&#39;ll have fun painting it. I’ll post pictures when I get home from work.
    And once my Sons of Prometheus force is complete I&#39;ll pick up where I left off with the Nid hunters, and I defiantly want to take a good look at Xeno hunters when that dex comes out.

    Nid squishy action :lol:

    `well im not exactly saying that i think it would look like it was some kind of nid tank convorsion , unless its limbs of nids with blood everywere , but i think that is kind of overboard . i think the dioramma would look great , better than nid bits anyway . but if you like the bits of nids then go ahead if it looks good to you thats all that matters , i myself just think that it looks overboard , decorating the base would be cool .
