Tyranid Cthulhu Tyrant WIP

Publié le 21 Mai 2008 par Hellric in Tyranids

It's been a veeeery long time since I posted anything reated to my beloved tyranids, but I think the inspiration is back, so here's my new project : a Hive Tyrant of Hivefleet Cthulhu, this was from the sight of those beasts that the fleet was named like the Great Old One on some forgotten legends. This is the fusion of two of my passions : tyranids and Lovecraft mythos.

The Parts :


(Full size)

It's based on a carnifex kit with elongated legs, balrog wings. The body is decorated with additionnal plates on the torso, spikes on the back and sides, and a round mouth on the belly. The head is a micetic spore sac from Forgeworld, cut at the base  and front, with triple eyes from the carnifex and home-made head plate, horns and side, and of course some mandibles.

The legs have been resculpted with additionnal plates and side details. Wings features gaunt claws and  large scything talons, and I've added some muscular texture to make them look more niddy.

The big backplate is from forgeworld, the tubes have been cut to be like cannons, the inner side and the ends are resculpted to look like some kind of bio-cannon. I'll add ammunition-sacs under the arms with tubes to feed those weapons.

Now I still have to do the tail, feet and arms, and add lots of tentacles coming from under the carapace and rib cage.

Stay tuned : following updates soon !
