Reinforced Chiten could probably be modeled simply by thickening various parts of the Carnifex's armour. Given the lack of bits and specific instructions, you're pretty much free to choose how far you want to go with such modeling, though.
I don't think that'd be easy to pass off - I know if I was up against a Tyranid opponent, I'd not allow something like that. It'd be very simliar to a Space Marine player trying to pass off Artificier Armour that looks exactly look Power Armour.Loestal said:Or model nothing at all and say its "harder", made of a stronger material.
I think this would be fine as long as your opponent lets you and you tell him about it. At least everyone at my local hobby shop and my friends would let me do that and I'd be fine with letting my opponent do that; although, if you where entering a tourny then you'd probally have to model/paint it on.Or model nothing at all and say its "harder", made of a stronger material.
No, because that's something that takes effect at the beginning of the game and can be quickly forgotten with no repercussions. Much like how Infiltration is - the very fact that you are deploying an infiltrating unit tells me that they have Infiltration. Scuttlers is similar - when deploying the unit, mention that the unit will be Scuttling shortly. Once the first round begins, I don't have to worry about remembering that the unit had Scuttlers, much like how you don't care that my Marines just infiltrated.Loestal said:There are no modeling pieces for scuttlers...do you demand people to model those?
Ok go to the http://uk.games-workshop.com/tyranids/carnifex-conversions/2/Lleu said:There are two GW examples on their website in the Carnifex Conversion article. Both use extra plastic bits so if you're not confident using green stuff then one of these might be an option for you.
Last conversion, called the Scuttle-Basher.
Again, the last conversion, this one called the Death Beetle.
