So this was bound to come up eventually. There are all these new units that no one makes models for. I'm curious if anyone has some ideas for how to make them yourself.
This is a list of the units that do not currently have models:
- Harpy (maybe use a Fellbeast model?)
- Mycetic Spores
- The Swarmlord
- The Doom of Malan'tai
- The Parasite of Mortrex
- Ymgarl Genestealers
- Tyranid Prime
Im currently builing a parasite of mortrex out of a oop ravener the really old ones. adding some wings from a reaper demon that i found in my bit box, its coming along nicely but am still on a toss up on heads to use I was thinking a warriors head, Or using something else,. A plastic ravener kit would work too if ya wanted. I just had the other bits left over.
As far as ymgral genestealers im using my old tendreled genestealers and a few other's that had upgrades like acid maws that dont exsist no more to represent them. Really liked the idea of the feeding tendrel ones due to the fact the picture shows them like that. Plus what else was i gonna do.
My mycetic spore is based off plastic grape friut from a decore store., I took a orange and added some old extended carapace peices, I found a old lash whips in my pit box and added them to it. then on one cut away a side and bent it over using some heat from a small torch. and added some hormagaunts coming out of it. the others have various things emerging such as a scything talon as if a carnifex or something else was dropped.
T hats all ive done so far. My spores ive had for a while as it was funny fluff i thought. But im glad i get to use them finally. it was a nice suprise.
Ill check this thread more so i can get moe idea's.
Here are a few links, and ideas:

Also, as the first option, but with the carapace converted to have an... exit orifice with a Termagaunt sticking out.
-Same as the Tervigon. Convert one of the carapaces from the Fex to have a big bioweapon of your choice sticking out. Or you can undersling the cannon on his belly, but I like the carapace idea better. Plus it lets you have a carnifex magnetised for any role!
-There's many people converting Plasma Hatchers (a kid's toy). It's relatively inexpensive, about the right size and not too hard to convert.
-A Tyrant with four boneswords, not really that difficult.
Doom of Malan'Tai:
-A Zoanthrope, but replace the head with one of the 2nd edition Zoans' heads. That may be a bit hard to come by, but it'll probably look really cool.
Necron Army Building Maxima: Beware of Phase Out
I was just looking at the Red Horror and I think if you put wings on it, it could pass for a harpy. You would still need to put a gun on it, though.
Great minds think alike eh elendor I was just coming to put that up. That using the red terror with balrog wings lol or fallowing a carnifex to trygon conversion with added winges and gun would make awsome harpy. I plan on using the red terror with guns and wings myself. I also got a idea for the tryannofex. (not sure if i spelled it right) Im using a carnifex and modify the chest to mount a gun on it. (plan on making it from 3 venom cannons glued and greenstuffed. it looks cool too, then giving the carnifed scything talons for legs much like my old spiderfex's. it was either that or converting a blaster/blister bug from starship troopers to a almost nid. lol I love kit bashing.
For the Parasite of Mortrex i'm just gonna put some wings on one of the new plastic Raveners.
My Arena Champions: Kharn'eth The Bloodcleaver and Gorzag Iron Jaw
i want to find a red terror for my parasite. don't think it'll happen anytime soon though. need to find a whole bunch of ripper swarms too, seeing i used up all of mine as base decoration for my hive tyrants and carnifexes.
actually, my flyrant would make a perfect parasite, if only i hadn't made the wings so damned large
nah, size of a tyranid warrior
