So as with many things in the Tyranid book, the best options seem to be those which are left out.  This week I’ve decided to work on my bugs a bit more, and that means converting 18 Tyranid Warriors with Bonesword and Lash Whip.

First I chopped off a ripper tail, then drilled a 5/64″ hole in it, to match the gauge of the thick copper wire I used.  Then I glued a spare claw-thing from the Trygon kit onto the end of the wire.  Finally, I glopped on some undiluted liquid greenstuff to bulk up the transitional areas between the plastic and copper wire.

After getting the rough shape, I did several layers of watered down liquid greenstuff to smooth out the whole whip and make the transitions really nice.

Here is the completed Tyranid Warrior:

The swords are from Paulson Games, in case you were wondering.  Go check him out, the quality is pretty good and the price is nice as well.
