Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just curious, but are we left to our own devices in created some of the new Tyranid monsters I.E. : The Parasite of Mortex, The Doom of Malan'tai, Swarmlord, Tervigon, Tyrannofex, and others?
Old one Eye, Death Leaper, and Mycetic Spores have models. Anyone know if these other new Tyranids are going to be modeled or just fabricated by the players?
Mycetic spores dont have models, unless your refering to the Forgeworld ones which are Meotic spores. Are you sure your not confused with spore mines?
Theres a tiny, hugley salty rumour that there may be a second wave at christmas, and that it will contain spore pods amung other things.
Weither or not all the missing items will come, and if they do, is unknown, but it not exactly hard to convert them as is.
Personally i recon theyll do an upgrade sprue for the tervigon and T-fex, and possibly a set of boneswords for the swarmlord/warriors ect.
But for the time being, were on our own.
Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
I'm converting a Carnifex right now, and will make a Tutorial once I finish. He's going to be the full works, working as a Carnifex, Tervigon or Tyranofex, with all upgrades magnetised.
I'm also planning on converting a Zoanthrope into the Doom, but that's still long-term.
Necron Army Building Maxima: Beware of Phase Out
for my spore pods I have some vulcanic rock I found in France. I made the totaly black and after that I brush it with a lot of grey.
I'm going to put some tentacles and left over rippers on it.
my parasite of mortex is basicly an old gargoyle with scything talons. I will also add some rippers on the base.
how big are you making your Parasite of Mortex? I was going to make one but i thought it would be warrior sized at least. I'm also planning to make some ripper bases with catachan in different poses that have rippers bursting out of them Aliens style. A friend of mine coincidentally made one just like that a while back and it looks really cool. These would be used specifically for rippers produced through the Parasite's rules.
One pretty cool spore pod conversion I saw was someone using those shapely conch shells. He mounted them on a big 60mm base I think and painted the shells, adding some green stuff and nid bits. It looked pretty cool.

the parasite is going to be exacly the size of an old gargoyel, there is not a lot of diffefence between the sizes of the warrior and the old gargoyle.
I'm not really trainted in converting, so the big spikes on the wings are a little bit big and clumsy. love the idea of the catachan fighters with rippers
bursting out of their body's, should look very cool.
by the way, is there any way to buy more rippers without buying whole boxes of other miniatures?
Could probably make a decent Harpy by converting one of the new Plastic Raveners by adding a set of wings.
