Just wondering if anybody came up with alternated ways of modelling boneswords and lashwhips as I personally don't like how mundane they look and feel they should be more creature like.
Would people accept something that looks like a scything talon except maybe shaped differently and painted differently? And for the whip maybe make it apart of the tail?

I'd personally say plasticard for the swords, or extra scything talons glued back to back (a double edged kind of thing), though the plasticard would be cheaper. For the whips, greenstuff over pinned paper clips seems good. You can add whatever bits you want, as your imagination is the real limit to making these things looking cool.
If a bonesword looks just like a scything talon then you will need to do something about it. Doing something unusual for your boneswords is fine but it needs to be something your opponent can recognise as different from a scything talon.
You could try to use the curved spikes or spines from the Chaos spawn box. They would look like swords in a way if put onto the right Tyranid arm and they are biological.
The GW manager at the local store said he had a kid come in who had modified a scything talon into a bonesword and it looked good. He cut the tip off so it had a flat top, filed off the armor plating, and then just reversed it. I'm thinking about trying it for my alpha once I'm done with my tervigon.
