Well my fleet is finally assembled and painted ready for this year's BFG tournament:

Here it is, all scratch built from 40K bits... oh and a poor dinosaur that was lying around too :)

Comments welcome. I'll be away for a few weeks but will be sure to be there on the 11th to give these boys a spin.

Awesome job :)

What parts/models did you use to construct it?

Thanks Neil.

The hiveships are made out of Carnifexes (yet another thing you can use the awesome Carnifex kit for :) ) and bits of dinosaurs for one of the tails.

The rest is pretty straightforward:
Hormagaunts for escort drones
Devourers and Deathspitters(?) for the Vanguards. I used copper wire for the tentacles. Not my idea, it's been done before but I don't have the link handy. They are also heavily inspired from this guy's work:
http://trolls-feuillus.forumactif.com/t ... e-tyranide
Tyranid warriors for the Krakens, not the cheapest option but I like the looks and I had quite a few lying around. I also have some with massive claws that are inspired from the kraken that appears in the Warp Rift 16 netzine.

Ordnance are just toxin sacs and adrenal glands mounted on needles and copper wire.

Glad you like them :)

Thanks Nic, and yeah the boards are great, made by one of our BFG regulars (he won't be around for the tournament sadly). Do you play yourself? Happy to give you a game sometime.
