I am looking for options on adding wings to Hive Tyrant
I have Hive Tyrant and want to add wings to it I have not painted it yet in anticipation of adding wings.
Where do I get wings ?
I hear chaos lords make good wing fodder, buy as bitz from GW.
You have a few options for wings if using GW parts. I used Bloodthirster wings for mine, bitz-ordered from the website. They're sized just about perfectly, and look almost exactly right. Big downside to them is that the wings are US$9 apiece, and you'll more than likely want the pair.
Alternatively, you can use the Plastic wings from any of the Fantasy Battle dragon models. These are probably cheaper than the 'thirster wings, and are not heavy enough to make double pinning the wings nearly necessary. On the other hand, they don't, IMHO, look quite as perfect on the Tyrant. There's an example of this kind of winged Tyrant in the codex. It's the one done in green/bone.
Finally, I've had several people suggest to me the use of the wings from the Fellbeast/Balrog out of the LotR line. These wings are well-crafted, but will give your tyrant an obscene wingspan making transport and just plain fielding the beast problematic, but... where there's a will, there's a way.
forge world is making a winged tyrant, abt 30cm wingspan
Awesome looking but $100 bucks is a lil bit pricey for me
I decided to make the wings myself out of greenstuff. Green stuff can be a bitch sometimes!! It doesnt look as bad as i thought it would. Still got some major work today before they are done
'ere, where's dat Warrior's legs?
(That a leaping warrior, right? Like it )
I like that Forgeworld Tyrant, I think I may order one of those. It's a good looking piece.

Yeah the Forgeworld Tyrant looks very nice! hehehe
only problem is it has a venom cannon
it should have 2 sets of scything talons
Tyrants with wings do not wanna Fly/stand around shooting.
they wanna be in CC were there best at (and also cant be shot at by every heavy weapon on the table)
