    tyrant guard...custom conversion or old model

    figured i'd ask this here because its actually relevant to 'nids.

    in this video, at about 40 seconds in, they show a tyrant guard. can anyone tell me if this is just a completely converted model or was there an old guard model that looked like this.

    YouTube - Warhammer 40K Tyranid Apocolypse build Vol 1

    i'm not a fan of the tyrant guard model and love this model. if i have to, i'll make my own. i was just wondering if there was a model like this.

    thanks.

    Why? eBay has plenty at fairly reasonable prices, especially compared to current models.

    i probably could get them on ebay, but some part of me wants to convert a model. i'll look at doing both once i finish my broodlord and his retinue.

    EBAY it and do conversions on that! So you get both, heh.

    You may also be able to find a few in local game-shop bargin bins. I picked up a 4th on clearance for a few bucks.

    I managed to get two of these at a nice half-off price a few months back. I'm working on a conversion for them. I blinded them like the fluff says they are, added some spikes, greatly beefed up the carapace, and adjusted the shield so it's in more of a defensive position. I can post some pics if you're interested.

    pictures would be great. i'm going to see about possibly ordering some from ebay. that might be easier than converting from scratch or from another model.

    I do as I'm told.

    The conversion isn't finished, I still have to smooth the extra carapace and greenstuff the elbows. Sorry for the crappy photo quality, I'm still figuring out the best way to photograph my stuff.

    Nice work on those guard! I have two of the older models like that and 3 of the new ones. I may have to switch the old ones up a bit more towards how you have them.
