More Tyranid stuff coming right up. I just finished off some conversions that had been gathering dust. I started these a while back but never got around to finish them. Not until now that is.
Both the Deathleaper and the Lictor are based off Tyranid Warriors. I wanted a sleaker profile on them compared to the Warriord to represent the weaker arnour save. I slimmed the model down a bit by cutting off the shoulder carapace and by re-sculpting the top of the back. I also cut down on the heads and fixed some Cthulhu tentacles on the face. One with Green Stuff (Lictor) and one with a Genestealer face (Deathleaper).
The Scything Talons needed to be big but I didn’t want to grab a set of talons from the Carnifex kit and call it a day. I wanted big talons but not too big. On the Deathleaper I used the small talon from the Carnifex kit (wait, what!?). I cut it down in size and stuck it on Rending Claw arms. Big but not too big. The Lictor’s talon are made from the talons in the Warrior box, I just elongated them and beefed up the arms a bit.
Neither the Deathleaper nor the Lictor looks exactly the way I want them to but they will do. They still look pretty cool. Any thoughts?
