    spare parts

    i was thinking of using spare fex parts and make it look like it's coming out of a gene pool. With the extra carapace and a head and weapons. Would this work and would you let me play with it if i was playing you in a game?

    It would depend on how far out of the pool it is. A fex is a large model and uses the vehicle rules for LoS and cover. A fex on the ground would be able to get cover saves from gaunts. If it was 4th ed rules for LoS and shooting I would have no problems.

    Sounds like a neat modeling idea though.

    i've done one and it's about 2" high so i think i'll make it a terrain piece or an objective. After all i already have 3 'fexes in 1500 pts, do i need more. I'll let the penguin decide

    Do you need more !?! At 1500 pts I take 4 or 5 fexes (depending on whether I need synapse from thropes or not). You can always use more fexes

    In a friendly game I wouldn't mind you proxying a short fex and just playing it as if it was taller. But for league/tourney's that would be to ambiguous. You should post some pics when you're done.

    I thin that if these are spare parts there will be no trouble in giving it a try and seeing how it turns out. If it works well your opponents may not mind. But bear in mind that your opponents may let you use it on condition that they can use their own weird 'stuff'.

    Don't mind unpainted at all. You should put the pics up in the modeling section of the board and then post a link in this thread.

    I just use a site like photobucket.com and upload pics there, you'll have to create an account on their site. After you upload, it'll give you some html code to insert in the post that can be used to post the image from another site. Look for the codes that have 'img' in it with brackets around the side. I believe there is a way to upload pics to the board itself, but I've never done it.

    My drop tanks come to mind right there....

    I know alot of people happen to try to make fexes out of the spare parts. Its amazing how many spare parts there are in a box of tyranids! I don't think I'll ever find a use for all of 'em.
