Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys, I was just wondering what people thought about using Old One Eye as a tyrant with twin linked devourers. How much converting do you think needs to be done? Can I just leave him and play him as WYSIWYG or do I have to do something to really make him more distinctly a tyrant.
If he is to be a Hive Tyrant I would say that firstly sticking a really big horn (you could cut and use a scything talon blade) on his head should help
After that just try to make him more tyranty and less fexy though that is tricky - you might if you have the skill try to reposition the legs so as to give a more upright look to him as tyrants tend to have

Sorry I don't think you can, or at least it won't be easy. If you want to make Old one eye into a Hive tyrant you will have to put it through alot of conversions. Old one eye is clearly a Carnifex and not a Hive tyrant, more to the point people still use him and the model he is based on as Carnifex's. Also his head has scarring which shows regenerate, a biomorph a Hive tyrant can't have.
Sometimes the plastic carnifex is converted into a Hive tyrant but when people do that they go to great lengths to show it's a Hive tyrant. An example is this 'Uber Tyrant'. *- ¦ HIVE FLEET MOLOCH - Warhammer 40,000 Tyranid Design ¦ Spawning Vat ¦>Uber Tyrant<¦
Another example is that people usually give their Carnifex Hive tyrants wings. Carnifex's can't have wings so the wings mark them out as a Hive tyrant. That is one way you could try to make Old one eye into a Hive tyrant. Give him the winged biomorph and he will be much easier to pass off as a Hive tyrant. I would also suggest trying to add more to his head to make him look psychic. Basically the problem you will have in trying to use Old one eye as a Hive tyrant is that it may confuse your opponents. You need to do enough to mark him out as different from the rest. Hope this helps.
