I am a noob, for BFG, and, mean while my SM fleet arrive from the MO and FW, I have decided to build a tyranid fleet, using only bitz from my immense bitz box.
I have built over 3000 pts of nids (1500 of which make a nidzilla army) so I have plenty of spare carnifex heads, carapace, claws, etc etc.
This is what I came up with, after about 4-5 hours of work:
The fleet as it is now (still to be finished), with a warrior for size comparison:
Cruiser 2 (is it clera I love BattleStar Galactica?!?!?!)
Drone (of some type):
Hive ship (my favorite):
Very nice, very impressive. What sort of scheme are you painting them in, the same as the hive tyrant you've got there?
(Is that a super-sized tyrant, or really small fleet )
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
Very nice indeed! Some nice models. Its always good to see BFG conversions.
Kudos to you pal.
They look brilliant, and a lot of fun to make. You should definitely put some pictures up once they're painted.
I wonder, have you written up your fleet list yet? I've theorised a few tyranid fleets but ive never seen one before or seen how an actual player would run one.
TBH, I think they look a lot better than the stock Tyranid BFG ships. It brings out hte fact thats the Tyranids are not always the same, and changed a lot.
I can't help but wonder though, if they are a lot bigger than the stock Tyranid BFG ships?
You should update these pics with descriptions of what the various bits are supposed to be representing.
Lone Wolves (Space Wolves) - 2092 pts
Hive Fleet Basilisk (Tyranids) - 1767 pts
Chaos Fleet - 900 pts
Absolutely incredible!! I have never seen any conversion this seamless, my friends (who think they have experience in the field) generally leave way too much to be desired.
If GW had the chance, they would definately break into your home, steal these ships and mass-produce a new Tyranid Fleet range.
I hope you are able to get those escorts done and painted soon, they would look bloody insane!
Asking for suggestions without knowing what you're planning on doing is like asking a blind man what color shirt matches your eyes.
