Ive started work on creating an alien queen hive tyrant and thought id start a sort of blog to show you progress and ask for advice. If started with a 1st (2nd?) edition tyrant head and built a crown around it. (I then undercoated it to check it looked smooth, dumb i know but what the hell!)
Ive just started on a neck to attach to a 3rd edition body.
Now for the weapons, I want to have scything talons, but the alien queen in the movie has claws. Ive decided to create a claw from genestealer scything talons so the model works in wysiwyg games but also doesnt look out of place.
What do you think?
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
the head is perfect, so beautiful...
Great work man. Only other thing i could say about it is that it could do without the mandibles.

woah! awesome work so far! did you scratch build that head crest?
It looks like a Alien Queen head from maybe McFarlane toys, or the Alien series that came out in the mid '90s. Looks really good though.:yes:

You may want to consider using the term "Norn Queen" which is the Tyranid equivalent of what you are do methinks
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I bought one of the old alien toys from ebay to use in this project but they are like twice the size of our mini's, so i bought a kids toy motorbike instead. I pulled it to bits and used the fuel tank as the dome part of the head and then built around it.
I thought about removing the talons from the jaw but I want it to still resemble a hive tyrant so decided on leaving them. Kinda like my hive has passed through alien space and devoured an infested world! I was thinking of using 'face hugger' ripper jacks as rippers on the base.
Isnt as norn queen somthing different? Im going to be using this model as a tyrant, just modeled on a queen.
Looking goog macewind. You really have the head perfect. I am going to be following this one with interest. Its a pity the pictures are a bit grainy.
