On Sunday, I managed a little hobby time between normal life stuff. EG fixing taps, picking up kids, buying work supplies, hanging with the kids etc.
I decided to explore the more human-ish side to my army. The conversion possibilities are actually making me feel excitedly overwhelmed hehe. I’m so used to swapping human or Ork bodies around and not so much monsters and big creepy aliens.
The bits list for the conversions for this army is, or could be, just about endless…
HOWEVER, the fact that I want to try and complete this army by the end of 2019 means I can’t just keep building and building and building. Although I’d love to haha.
SO, what does all this mean?
It means I need to break down the army into “types”.
I’ve come up with this:
1. The Evolved. Full blown Tyranids of all breeds and sizes.
2. The Enlightened. Psykers warrior priests. The link between the evolved and the rest of the types.
3. The Hatebreed. Mostly Tyranid with elements of human.
4. The spawn. Mostly human with elements of Nid.
In each type there will be a command unit or single miniature.
I built one for the Hatebreed, one for the spawn and one for the Enlightened.
Not a bad start and it’s given me a little more direction.
Thoughts on colour…
I watched Outland on Sunday night too. One of my favourite science fiction (it’s more like a western) movies of all time.
Inspired by this movie the clothing worn by The Hatebreed and The Spawn will be dark grimy yellow. I’ve been wanting to do something yellow for a while now. Actually, since seeing Wudugasts yellow robed skaven.
Still thinking about colour for the Nids.
