Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys, aside from painting my newest project/goal is to make a Tyraniformed Fortress of Redemption...Any ideas on how to do so? haha Anything is helpful if i use your idea i'll be sure to post your name in project thread for it! thanks guys
Wow thats gonna take a lot of effort. The main thing woud be to emphasise the amount of floral growth over it, so some spikey looking vines over the main tower, and nasty looking plants all around it, perhaps with the occasional ripper/guants hiding in them.
I think its got some sort of missle bay right? Maybe make that into a biovore position, or stick several large weapons down there instead. Perhaps if you know how to make a devourer cannon (i think thats what theyre called) then that would look good too.
The occasional sporemine scatterd around could look interesting, and hive guard would be quite fluffy as they defend such possitions, although its normally a capiliarly tower, but thats much the same thing. And for shear good looks, a lictor hanging off the main tower would be very cool.
Good luck with it reardless.
Your friendly neighbourhood gargantuan creature
an 11ft alien ninja hanging from the fortress of whatnot. SWEET!!
yeah, OP lots of spore mines, lots of rippers and those things you get with genestealers, those spawn pod things.
if you do it, post some pictures!! pwetty pwease
Hive Fleet Centycore W:1 D:0 L:0
Tentacles.. Lots of Tentacles of the great beasts that grow from the deep to tear apart the buildings and habs so the rippers can consume anything inside...
Perhaps make the main tower the base of a Capilary Tower that's growing skyward.
Eggs! It needs eggs. When Tyranids take over these places they often have a use for them or they would just level it with Carnifexes and get Rippers in to eat it once it's been mashed up. Tyranids don't like to sit about being grim like the Imperial types who build these things and will only keep it if they have apparent uses for it.
One section could contain a small, sheltered digestion pool. Perhaps it could go where those missiles are meant to go. Instead of launching missles gobs of digestive juices are spat out by a nearby orrifice that is linked via tubes to the pool. The orrifice could be made from deathspitters, barbed stranglers etc. This way you can say it is helping to pre-digest the attacking enemy soldiers for consumption. The eggs could be put in corners and alcoves etc, they will add to the idea that it has been taken over. The Tyranid plant things that come with the Genestealers could be glued to areas on the walls so show it is being taken over. Use some green stuff to lengthen the ends of the short vines on those plants and link them to other plants.
Tyranids don't deface images on purpose because they don't like it, thedeface images as a by-product of the hive at work. I think that you should when you paint it paint the untouched Imperial areas like you are painting it for an Imperial army. You could even include details like small kill marking the pirevious defenders put there etc. Show discolouration of the Imperial stuff the closer it gets to the Tyranid stuff. This may add to the idea it is being taken over. A big Tyranid spore chimney would look good bursting out of the top of the tower.
