WIP: Alien Nid's and The Space Hulk "Voidscream"

I finally got to take a break from work and have dived straight into hobbying. I've been Alien-izing my Tyranids again. I broke out the Tervigon and Hive Tyrant plastic kits I got some time back and went to work with greenstuff.

WIP: Flyrant
Here is a modified Hive Tyrant head. I just slopped on some greenstuff on top of the head and smoothed it out.
Mounted the head on the Flyrant body. I have not stuck on the twin linked devourers yet.
Will be using the Tyrannofex Fleshborer Hive arms for the twin linked devourers.

WIP: Tervigons
I did the same greenstuffing for the top part of the Tervigon head. I had some spare Tyranid Warrior heads and used the jaw area to make the Alien tongue organism.
The simple conversion involves sticking the Warrior mouth to the opposite end of the original Tervigon tongue.
The first Tervigon I assembled. Now with the converted head. I will call it Harry for now.
I'll name this one Sally.
They share an touching moment together.
Babies!!!

WIP: The Space Hulk "Voidscream"
Did some work on the deck plating of the Voidscream. Used some knitting squares from Art Friend and glued them onto some plastic board.
This is the very basic result of the deck flooring of the Voidscream. There are six boards here making it 6 feet by 4 feet for gaming ;)
Some terrain I got 2 great gaming and terrain companies. The alien eggs are from Dark Art Miniatures while the strange living artifact (in green) is from Fenris Games. Also shown is Brother Tamryn of the Black Templars. He does not like what he sees.
The Living Artifact! It is yet unpainted, but looks to be a treat to paint.
Me playing with terrain pieces again haha! I got 60 of the alien eggs. The alien aegis like wall at the top of the pic above is a free item thrown into my purchase by the good gentlemen at Dark Art Miniatures.

I can feel Christmas in the air already, and the promise of an impending battle :)

Have a great week ahead all!
