    Keep in mind, this figure isn't really painted yet, and I'm not nearly the modeler that some of you guys are, but do these work as wings for a tyrant? And do the arms look like they're just flailing?

    I tried for a crouched position as if it just landed, with something catching the tyrant's attention to it's left. It was originally a walking tyrant, but after basecoating it, I decided wings would be a good idea. I would have used WHFB dragon wings, but the only pair I could find was on the GW site, and it would have cost an absurd $19 for the wings plus shipping, (no finds on ebay, unfortunately). I'll be resculpting the bone and muscle along the top of the wings out of greenstuff tomorrow, since they were originally bird-wings that I had to cut and trim. I'll probably also buy a forgeworld flying tyrant, since I happen to like Simon Egan's work quite a bit, but I see no reason not to have 3 winged tyrants (I already have one):





    P.S. I picked up a scythed hierodule on ebay for $70 bucks... that's a good deal, right? I can't get the forgeworld site to load for some reason, and I forget the retail price. I'd also appreciate painting tips for it. I might want it to be in a separate color scheme from my army...

    I really like this hive tyrant, but it needs somemore drybrushing and the wings should be probably green/white. I really like his pose especialy the scything talons. I really like the idea of him just landing.

    Uh, talon, what part of "pre-paintjob" did you not understand? He even went head and said:

    Keep in mind, this figure isn't really painted yet
    But you're absolutely right, talon. The "just landing" think helps out a lot, since tyrants usually have such a static pose.

    I like it, the pose is cool. I`d like to see more pics once you have sculpted the bone and muscle too!

    Nice job

    Looking good to me as well! Good wings are where You find them...

    But are my eyes playing tricks on me, or do the Wings look a bit thick in the isometric frontal picture? Somehow it looks a bit like the foam used in camping mattresses... ^_^;

    No, you are correct... I'm filing it down as I type

    It doesn't matter, since this guy's gone up on ebay along with the rest of my extra 'nids... I want to fund a FW tyrant!

    tHE WINGS AND POSITION ARE COOL, BUT THE JOINT FOR THE WINGS COULD DO WITH SOME GREEN STUFF TO FILL IN THE GAPS, ALSO, WHERE DID YOU GET THOSE WINGS?
    I'M SORRY ABOUT THE ALL CAPS, MY KEYBOARD IS CRAPPED UP!!!
