Welcome to Librarium Online!
What are you guys going to do with your:
-second flying tyrant
-old tyrant guards
-hive node gaunt
Other than my second flying hive tyrant I reuse everything. On the gaunts I switched the talons for fleshborers and use them as slightly odd looking gargoyles. I never had any rending rippers and The hive nodes still look cool. I still use biovores on occasion. So basicly you can still use most of it with alittle work.
i am converting one og my guards into a brood lord and didnt do anything with the rest
Well there is no problem with the old models you can still use them, im still using the old Carnifex aka Screamer Killer but unfortunatly i cant use Zoats (anyone remember them?) anymore.
MEAT IS MURDER
as for having a 2nd Winged Tyrant, just keep it and try to play 2500+ games where you can have a double FoC
easy solution: greenstuff
my second flying tyrant, which i never finished anyway, is getting two sets of twin linked devourers, to become "Plinky" the Fast Flying Flechette Fiasco - only for use against guard, eldar, and other low save armies.
luckily i never bought any of the 3rd guard models, so i'm getting three of the new ones. but then again, i'll probably get to painting them sometime in the middle of 2007, so maybe I should hold off.
i was never a big fan of weapon beasts, and only have a few hive node gaunts, so those get the dremel and greenstuff to become something even wierder
i just put one hive node in each unit. i like having a definite "leader bug" even if it doesnt confer any upgrades.
on stuff like tyrant guards, id guess they are still fine to use as is.
Apathy is its own reward...
I still use my old carni, and it looks great.
Biovores, I never used
Rending ripppers-only had one, and so I don't use it
Hive nodes-still use them, look cool
Don't have any winged tyrants
Tyrant guard-Look better, IMO. New ones look like weird gorillas. Mine still have the right weapons, as I give them lash whips, they have rending claw(s), and I just say the shield is what makes them so tough!
I'll take your rippers ^_^Originally Posted by MarcTheDwarf
Seriously, they can be converted to new models with the new Ed tyranid bits, this could diversify your broods and give them a bit more individuality. Also tyranic war vets could use those, or any unit with a prefered enemy.
A nice convertions for the winged hive tyrant would be simple: have a caracter or dreadnought slaying it, this is a great weapon to earn points to sanctioned events, and to recycle unusable models.
