Tyranid Termagants with Stranglewebs

I've converted some Tyranid Termagants to have Stranglewebs, since there are no current models of them. The conversion was pretty simple. I started with a Termagant with a Fleshborer. I removed the ammo magazine part and replaced it with two large Carnifex Toxin Sacs glued together back to back. I extended the barrel with the carved down base of a Woodland Scenics tree trunk. You can read more about those trees in this post. I capped off the end of the barrel with half of the round piece from the bottom of some old Fantasy Chaos Warrior plastic weapons. Here are the results.

I think they turned out pretty well, though I need to fill that little gap between the end of the Fleshborer barrel and the tree trunk piece. I'm also considering putting a thin layer of greenstuff over the round part at the end, and poking some divots into with a pin, since there should be some holes where the stuff comes out. Then again, maybe I could just paint that on. I haven't decided yet, so if you have an opinion please let me know.

  1. I would poke the holes. Might as well complete it. I once made a couple bunkers and just painted on gun slits, and it's just not the same. Granted you're probably finished with them. I need you check your blog more often. You are so much faster and more focussed than me. I'm already thinking about an inquisitor inspired guard army thanks to those historical minis you've shown me.... Dammit... after the dark elves and Blood Angels... stay on target... stay on Ooo SHINEY!
