Tutorial: Warrior-Alpha (Tyranid Prime) out of bitz
Nice. Thanks for sharing. He did a good job, though I wonder if anyone would complain about them using Monstrous Creature 60mm bases (as opposed to the original 40mm ones). I've actually seen that type of conversion before on ebay, way before the 5th ed. Tyranids codex came out.
Record: Win - Loss - Draw: Hive Fleet Pandora (New) 32-6-6 Space Wolf 7th Co. 52-11-6

Imperial Guards 12-5-2 Daemons 8-3-2
they look good i like the star ship troopers looking bugs but man is that model way to big lol no hiding him.
doesn't need to be hid ;p
isn't a MC so doesn't fall ill to the 50% rule although him technically getting "cover" from gaunts does seem a bit ludicrous
lol this is true, but he should be on a smaller base. Silly nids just bet bigger and bigger :p
The base may be a problem, but it could be easily fixed.I think it's pretty awesome and am probably going to try and make my own similar one. Without the main body piece of the carnifex of course. they are too expensive to buy for a single piece. I can probably use one of the spare back pieces I have though.
Well, as there is no model for the prime yet, we don't know what base it's supposed to have. So until we get some real models, any base should be ok. Really nice models though, I wish I could do something like that.
"I have seen you humans, trying to forge an Empire in the name of a corpse"
That is rather awesome, both the mini itself and the sketches. I've been planning on doing a 'starship troopers' style bug for my Prime, although I'll actually be using a pic of the bugs themselves as a reference since the limbs are organised a little differently and I like the way they work.
Either way, it's a good looking conversion although it is indeed quite large. Looks nice and gribbly and could easily pass as a Prime. From what I can tell from the background a Prime is pretty much an advanced warrior anyway, not really that different from the basic ones.
I saw that, and while I wanted to go with a similar approach, I didn't like the size of the legs, especially with how nitpicky some people can be about LOS. I took a bunch of Hormagaunt arms, an extra Warrior abdomen and came up with this. And yes, I know the paint edging of the armor plates is sloppy, a lifetime of videogames have ensured I don't have the steadiest hands in the world.
Size comparison with Warrior
I have had luck with using mawloc talons instead of normal warrior talons and a ravener head. Otherwise just a normal warrior build.
