Welcome to Librarium Online!
What do you guys think about my converted devourer on my hive tyrant?
Here's the link:
You can have two TL devourers and a Venom cannon? Isn't that like, illegal?
Well, anyways, theres somefink wrong with its head crest... it looks all bumpy and stuff.
I might suggest a few painting tips too, like undercoating the model first, and watering down your paints...
Nice looking weapons, even if it's not technically legal it still looks cool.
I did undercoat it, but i guess I should water down my paints. Monstrous creatures are allowed to fire two weapons a turn, so it is perfectly legal.
'Isn't that like, illegal?'
You can have one twin linked devourer as one weapon choice. Then, for your second choice, you can take another one. That leaves no room for a venom cannon
Ah I see you've painted him a very similar grey to the standard plastic colour... might I suggest doing some highlighting with a very light grey along the tops of ridges and around the edges of crests etc, it helps the definition.Originally Posted by broken_spoons
Watering down paints is very important, otherwise the paint sits proud of the surface and goes slightly lumpy, making it look more like paint and less like natural skin/carapace colouring. I tend to use 1 drop of water to every 3 drops of paint for most colours.
Speaking of lumpy... how did your Tyrant's head crest get misshapen?
I tried to extend its head with green stuff to represent extended carapace, but it didn't turn out too well... I didn't know much abou watering down because it was my 2nd ever tyranid I painted, about 2 years ago.
And to the comment about the venom cannon being illegal, sorry I didn't explain it, but the two arms (4 devourers) represent [/U]one [U] twin linked devourer, not two, so that is one weapon, and the venom cannon is the 2nd weapon choice. Should have explained it better.
Ahhh, that asplains it... but you know some pickier opponents will be all like 'WYSIWYG' on you and compain that its illegal... but then you shouldnt play those kina people anyway.
Thats pretty cool.I like it.Good stuff mate.About the painting,just try and water down your paints abit,it will make your paintjob a ton better.
