Hey everyone, I was just wondering, do you guys actually model your biomorphs and upgrades? Or do you just tell your opponent what each of your units has before you start the battle...
I try to modell as much as possible on the model, expecially weapons. This does limit the lists you create, as the weapons will most likely be the same for each battle, but if you have a good idea of what you want your army to do, itr will generally be around the same force all the time. As for ts and ag and things like that i on;y model it if they are going to have the upgrade, but otherwise i don't put it on. But yes, if they do have the upgrade then if it is supplied or i can represent effectively some how then i will model it. If you play friendly lists and against friends who do not mind chaning WYSIWYG then i guess it's okay, but if you want to go into tournaments then what u've modelled onto your models that will most liekly what you play with. Anyway, i've think i rambled on too much but i hope it helped. Happy hunting.
Yeah and WHAT ABOUT LEAPING is it in a foot or something or do u just say?!
As far as i know, there is no physical representation for a leaping warrior, but what i do is to position the legs so it looks like they running, usually with one leg off the base. If you wanted to get really creative, you could attach them to the base with wire and have thier entire body off the base, as if they were leaping onto an enemy.
o im sure ive seen this thread before.
all models have to follow the WYSIWYG rule (what you see is what you get)
so if it has a bio-morph you have to model that bio-morph onto the model
Although it's a lot easier with some bio-morphs than other, stuff like the reinforced chitin or bonded exoskeleton are quite tricky to pull it off.
o i agree its a b.itc.h to model bonded exoskeleton, but reinforced chitin i find that if you layer thin "slabs" of grren stuff for lack of a better word onto the already modeled chitin and slowly build up successive layers of it it has quite a nice effect.
so where would i get the wings for my warriors?
I try to represent everything I can, but one thing I will never represent using the existing bit is Adrenal Glands. Personally, I think that bit looks horrible.
Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.

Forge world have released wings for the warriors. They are expensive but do look very cool, and i think i was reading they count as either ST or RC which is handy because they take up one of the arm sockets. They can be found at:Originally Posted by Hive Fleet Cobra
I'm not sure how other wings look. If you go the UK GW website and find your way to the online store they sell individualt parts for certain modles, so if you wound models that use wings and would be the right size for the warriors they can always be used (try fantasy warhammer as well). Hope ure hunt goes well.
