I'm thinking of converting one of my Trygon a bit and using some magnets so I can switch it off between itself and a Harpy whenever I need it. I want to use a Trygon rather than a fex because:
1: My fexes are either converted into Tervigons or a Tyrannofex.
2: I think fexes are too small and a large harpy would look awesome.
So what do you think?
Also, if anyone has seen any pics of this done can you link or post them. Thanks.
I have actually been trying to figure this out for a while also. Just type in tyranid harpy in google images. It should come up with a bunch of pictures for you to get ideas from. Also look on ebay. Sometimes you can find some sweet pictures there too. Right now there is a guy making custom harpies to anyone's specifications. He has a bunch of pictures of different harpies he has made for people. You could maybe get them from him if you wanted. I think they were 75 bucks apiece. Although that would take a lot of the fun out of it.
My mate posted this up on dakka forum. DakkaDakka - Warhammer 40K Forums - Nids: Harpy Conversion It looms amazing (Even better painted) It was originally a trygon.
Edit: Sorry. It was actually a carnifex. XD

Why not use both? That's what I did. One of the things I like best about the Nids is how interchangeable their bits typically are. I didn't buy a whole Fex and Trygon kit for my two Harpies like I did for my Tervigon, but I had so many leftover bits all I really had to do was EBay a Fex body and a Trygon tail.
Most of all I wanted a Harpy that looked aerodynamic, so to get that effect, I used two of the Fex armour plates and put them on the top and bottom of a Fex head to make it look like a giant bullet or missile. I used the spiny ones too, so now it has Cluster Spines. I used the medium Trygon/Mawloc Scything Talons for its upper arms, and the rest are regular large talons from the MC arms sprue. I chopped up a large Trygon talon to make the end of the tail. What's probably not so visible is the Warrior torso I turned around and used as the abdomen, where the Fex body and the Trygon tail meet. I printed out insect wings from a template I found, laminated them, and magnetized them for painting and transport.
So now I have a Harpy that 'looks like a Trygon', as the fluff says, but smaller to reflect how it is relatively frail, and with the aerodynamic look I wanted. Easy enough to duplicate too, so I have two.
Wow, Mads! That's terrific.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
