    El cheapo Hive Guard

    well, as cheap as having a couple of spare warriors hanging around - unsure who did this, but its a great idea, and makes good use of spare parts you may have kicking about


    so here's the WIP of my two.


    hoping to get the parts off someone to make a third

    I think your two are better potatolegs. They look like more work has gone into them and it opays off with them looking more big and better like actual Hive Guard. The other one is ok but there isn't enough work done to it and it looks like a Tyranid Warrior more than a Hive Guard.

    well i like the first one so far as the head from the hormagaunt kit seems to fit a lot nicer, unlike the rippers i decided to use. and i thought at first using the rending claws might be a bit too large, but they seem to be doing the trick. in any case, mine are based and undercoated so i'll start painting them soon.

    ..once i get a few of my friend's marines out of the way..

    In my opinion yours are better. They look bulkier and less like warriors.

    agreed with all the posts above. Rep for conveying a great idea that looks wonderful to boot!

    oops, i'd actually finished these guys off a while ago, but i forgot about this thread - here's the finished result:



    conclusions... well i think i still prefer the official models, but i still rather prefer the cheaper price tag. very easy conversion to bust out over all

    Honestly I think the rending claws look quite nice, and that is indeed a much better conversion than the springboard you started from

    Considering what you were aiming for I think you succeeded and then some and thats a great paintjob to boot.

    only thing that looks out of place to me is the feeder arm might have worked better if you loped off the hand part of a claw arm and just stuck it into the slot on the gun

    definately +rep for a job well done

    cheers fenix, and that's a solid idea - might require a bit more work in green-stuffing the hand to the gun, but wouldn't have been too much of an issue overall. if ever i do more i'd take that route

    I think it turned out pretty well. I like the bulked up appearance. Passes for hive guard without a doubt.

    Those turned out exceptionally well. Nice work.
    ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
