Winged Tyranid Warriors,

Bupresnid Genus

 

These are my first Tyranid conversions, inspired by a discussion on the Warpshadow.com forums as to using natural colourations from Jewel Scarab and Buprestid genus metallic beetles for ‘nid colour schemes. After digging out my old Citadel metallic paints, it seemed natural to try for insect-like wings instead of the usual leathery dragon ones. These ones come from the old ‘Ariel’ Wood Elf personality from WHFB and seem to work. Anyway. here is the ‘hovering’ model.
