Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi all i play Dark angels and NIDs but most of my models are from 2nd edition so if i try and blend newer nids models in, the whole army looks off balance or kinda "wierd". I dont have that problm with my marine army cause not much changed but my NIDs are another story
Anyone els have this problem?
I had this long signature made up, but I didnt like it...
The great thing about nids is that you can use old looking models and it still fits the fluff about them constantly changing and evolving. I've got the warriors from space crusade (christ knows how old they are) and everyone says how good they look. I prefer the old zoanthropes too. The terminators from space crusade, however, are bricks and look crappy. There'sno probs with old models, it adds character to your army.
well... I think especially the older tyranid models look so pathetic ... apart from maybe the old zoanthrope model, I wouldn't want to include any 2nd edition nids into my force
I myself like the 2nd Ed Rippers...
Otherwise, I'm just cannibalizing 2nd Ed models for conversion parts. =)

I used old 2nd edition gaunts as Hive nodes in my nids.
