Welcome to Librarium Online!
The tyranid Codex Clearly states that to create your own species requires ALL biomorphs must be visible on model....
Anyone have any ideas on how I`m supposed to show a Nid has EnhSen? I have my shooty warriors waiting for a paint job..... But need to add this final biomorph to complete them first...
bigger eyes? but most of these biomorphs that add to the creatures physiology
you can't really model the biomorphs for
so basically just say they are there at the start of the battle
oh yeah and you wont get kicked out of tournaments for not having it as you can't really model it
and there ya go
When cities burn and armies turn
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day,
But warriors know it in their marrow when they
die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have
fought at all.
the keeper of the stuff!
the knower of werty!
the master of the obvious!
well, the codex has some crazy models with green stuff to give them like extra eyes and stuff, but I say if you paint the eyes a different color or something, that should be enough. I mean, if you're paying the points for it, that should be enough. They do have those bio-morph sprues, but I never really liked those.

wat i would do is take some of the extra plastic cprue i knwo u ahve laying around. first take a piece about 3/4 of an inch to an inch and file it so its rounded and its pointy at the end and wider at the bottom. make two of them, and glue them to the creatures head to represent entenae to sense the enemy. use your imagaination! build up part of the creatures head with green stuff and say thats part of the brain that controls the sense and it is bigger because they are enhanced.
<insert witty remark here>
I thought of bigger eyes too Fenix! It would look hilarious :lol: .
But seriously, antennaes or 'feelers' on the heads might work. Extra eyes ain't a bad idea either, and it shouldn't be hard to green stuff, If you're moderately skilled with it. Taste is also a sense. You could make them have long ugly tongues like this:
Ave Dominus Nox!
Thanks for the input so far....
I really like the antenna idea
--- My plans are to use epoxy putty to model extra eyes, which fits with my more insect/arachnid-like theme. Let's see what happens once I get the basic limb conversions done...
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
I hate spiders....so the extra eyes idea is a no-go for me. I did model some crappy looking antennae on the head of my Tyrant though...poor ugly thing . I think I might just take a biomorph from the sprue and glue it onto the head and paint it a different color from the Init and WS adrenal gland ones next time and say that's their ES... lol
"Can you put that in a memo and title it '***** I already know!'"
Church: "Ok, so we're agreed? You first!"
Sarge: "Get on with it, Griff."
Griff: "I'd just like everyone to know: that I suck."
Griff: "And that I'm a girl..."
Church: "What else?"
Griff: "And I like ribbons in my hair, and I want to kiss all the boys."
Sarge: "This has to be the best surrender of all time."
Ive tried antennae but the model looked so ugly so I promptly ripped them off, but if modelled properly I think that antennae would look pretty good... if done properly...

I've cut pieces off of barbed stranglers and other weapons, they end up looking like a horn that I put right in the middle of the head, kinda makes them look like rhinos. There are tiny claws and bars on lots of the weapons that you can easily clip off to do this!
Do not meddle in the affairs of Tyranids, for you are crunchy and taste good with everything!
