    Hive Fleet Manticore's Myctic Spore [PICS]

    Hive Fleet Manitore's Myctic Spores Differ from most. They are full of emroylic fluid that keeps it;s deadly payload alive through prolonged flights. Upon impact, over half is burried underground. The Sycthing talons and arms rip the top hatch from the rest (or whats left of it) of the spore and creat a large opening for it's payload. This also cause fluid to gush out causing local plantlife to grow out of control, and in time, help conceal it's location. If it surives the frist 24hours it becomes a den for tyranid organisms and in time a production center (great for future objectives)

    Inspiration came from my father's "Back-O", The picture of a spore in the new codex, The Zerg, and Potatoe Legs.

    I have pictures of it before it was painted if you guys wanna see.

    I used a moonscape crater from GW, then i used Popcile sticks, a hot glue gun, and tyranid bits to make the model. and yes, my mom luaghed very hard when i asked her for the glue gun and the popsicle sticks.

    As you can see, the model blocks line of sight to protect the troops. in addition you can fit a majority of the models inside the spore it's self so if crash into tight quarters the damage to ur unit is minmized.

    Thoughts?

    It looks really cool, but that base is ridiculously huge. You're going to have some gameplay issues with that....namely, you won't be able to drop it in smaller, tighter spaces.

    Heh, I was also thinking of using a glue gun to help make some more organic spores. I'm glad to see that it works quite well. Although I agree with jy2, the base is a bit big for practical play. Anyway, nice job, it looks great!

    That thing is very cool. Reppy for you. I really like the gooey goodness of it. Looks like it is a huge biological drop-pod. The fluff is very cool too. I think that adds alot ot it and makes it much more interesting. I like Tyranid nesting areas. You could try a little dark red ink in between some of the strands of flesh, that will give it more depth and make it more icky looking.

    What's your father's "Back-O".

    Yes, unpainted pics would be cool to see. It will help show how it was made.

    I have only scene two myctic spores that (In my opinion) look like myctic spores. And this is one of them.

    Well done, very cool looking. It is on the big side but you could give your trygon a cover save if it hid behind it

    man, how caught up are people on the size of these things..

    it looks totally sweet Bladeweaver, rep for you. I'd say that the white carapace is a bit sparse, but i guess you can only work with what you've got. it'd be nice to see more carapace plates on it though

    Sorry it took so long to post these. When you make your own, use the hot glue gun to make the ridges in the flesh

    Almost forgot, Potatoelegs, I completly agree with you, I mean, finally someone who sees it from my side

    This size makes it look more realistic

    And yes, i would have liked some more plating in the front, but i work with what i got. I ran into the same problem with the Harpy Project. Which reminds me, I will have Harpy Pics up within 30 days
