I'm posting this because I just learned of all the potent combinations involving a Tervigon, and I'm very frustrated that there isn't a model for it yet. I wanted to ask everyone if anybody has heard of any rumors, news, etc. that GW or Forge World will release a Tervigon model? In the meantime, what models are people using as proxies that are being approved (given that the tervigon is a monstrous creature). I know we can build one, but I don't want to go through all that time and money just to have somebody release a tervigon model the second I complete my scrathbuilt one. I've been burned by GW too many times to fall for that one again. -Jay
Heh, my assumption is that Forgeworld will eventually put out a kit (probably a conversion kit) for the tervigon and one for the tyrannofex.
I'll be really amazed if we don't see a Forgeworld mycetic spore, unless GW is doing one - but that seems unlikely without FW testing the waters.
Also expecting a Forgeworld kit for warrior lashwhips and boneswords. That's be a simple thing, like the IG equipment sets they made.

Tervigons are wonderful, I completely destroyed my two carnifexes and remodeled them into tervigons. I figured Im never gonna run a carni again so what the hell right?.
Ill bet most people you play against would be fine with you using the carnifex model as your tervigon, some might argue base size but if thats the case just swap out the trygon/mawloc base and you will be fine. (u actually gain a slight advantage with the bigger base size as well)
This is one reason I wish GW would follow Privateer Press and the stat listing actually gives the official base size.
Well, there's not really a standard "monstrous creature" base anyway. Daemon Princes are on 40mm bases. My old Eldar Avatar only came with a 50mm square base for whatever reason. Greater Daemons get played on 50mm square all the time. Whereas Bloodcrushers come on 60mm bases despite not being MC's, and presumably Thunderwolf Cavalty would too (based on Canis's model). And like you pointed out, the Trygon has an oval base. More and more of the monstrous creatures that get new models get the 60mm base (see old Wraithlord vs. new Wraithlord) but it's far from universal, and there's certainly no rule about it. The only definitive rule about bases is the "base it came with" rule, which can't really be applied if there's not a model to begin with. I can't imagine most people would say anything about either base size, but if they do, there's not really any basis for objecting to either the 60mm or the oval.
Using the large Oval trygon base with the tervigon actually gives you an advantage over the smaller 60mm base because of the spawn termigants rule. the 6" spawn radius is increased due to the larger base size, hence my reasoning for using it.
Though if your worried about your tervigon getting into combat you could run the smaller 60mm base so that less guys can crowd around (Though even if your in combat I don't think a smaller base is going to help you much!) but that call is yours.
If your looking to be fair, you could determine the base size based off of the amount of wounds the model has and the discription of the unit.
Spore/60mm or larger If you plan on using a base! (I believe that every spore should have a actual base due to the fact that it is still a MC!)
This is my reasoning for base sizes
Hope this helps you
NEED..tururial to make those claws...NOW!!!so here's what i came up with
that is probably one of the sickest conversions I have seen so far...
P.S. I really like the claws.
Arn't they just crushing claws?
