Welcome to Librarium Online!
Tyranid Concepts 1: Hive Tyrant, Tyrant Guard, Broodlord
Tyranid Concepts 2: Lictor, Ripper Swarms, Zoanthrope
Quite nice, and as usual, some much better than the finished model (say, the Bonesword and "shield" concepts). (Y)
"The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."
I really like the sketches of the broodlord, it will certainly help with converting it to a nastier critter.
Also your right Uzi-99, the bonesword would have looked a whole lot better if it was done that way instead.
Nice, very nice. I never liked the look of the 'nids before, but this new line is turning out to be very cool.
It looks like they decided on "symbiote" concept (like the guns), rather than the idea of the whole creature being "engineered" to a specific purpose.Originally Posted by Dreachon
i like the second (from the left) brood lord pose. looks like thats what the actual model was based on. shame that they didn't quite manage it. if those arms on the tyrant are boneswords they've just given me a great idea. i'm going to try and convert my old tyrants though, so I can save money for a carnifex, or hopefully more than one.
edit: the first lictor pic looks completely class though. makes me wish i didn't have 3 already (or had loads of money) so i could buy one and make it look exactly like that.

My favourite out of that group would have to be the Tyrant Guard. I really like how it folds up and the bone plates form a on ginormous (it's a word damnit >_>) shield. I can just picture a pair of them on the battleiled rushing in front of a Tyrant and folding up into a wall of armour to stop a shot. They put a lot of thought into this.

Yea those concept sketches are great. Also the new models are great. Everything is great great great! Well except the new tyrant model... Yuck
One thing I though was interesting. One of the rippers has a devourer on his face! Now I am not an expert on nid rules but that could be something new.

2 things........HOLY crap. they look like bad ass's now. i love the zoan's they remind me of the "Aliens"(movie). Thats good i guess.
And yah the rippers do have some kinda bioweapon coming out of their mouths, its ok but freaken weird, i wonder about the new rules for them.....
Some great pictures, pity some of the detail has been lost on the figures. I not a fan of the bone sworded but i loved the way it was built into the arm on one of the piture, again pity they didn't do that as the new HT would have had a better look and not been a clone of the old one !
If it lives it will be consumed
well you could always make your own bonesword based on those sketches, know I'm gona try that.
