Tyrannocyte - Alternative Model Ideas
« on: April 24, 2016, 02:39:56 PM »
I was considering playing some tyrannocytes in my tyranid army and, as great as the new models are, they're way out of my current price range as an unemployed student. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for alternative models or cheap conversions I could do to get several in my army without busting the bank - if it needs some green stuff work, I'm ok but not great, though certainly willing to try. Thanks for any help!

Armorcast, I think it was armorcast, made some Mycetic Spores way back when and are often accepted as proxies in casual groups.  The sizes are off, so don't expect tournaments to be okay with it though.  I've seen some scratch built ones out of foam ovals though that look good enough too, but you said your green stuff skills are iffy.  Still worth giving it a shot though atleast once.
