Project Unknown Tyranid Beasties Vol. 3: The Parasite of Mortrex



"...a Tyranid bioform never before encountered- a bat-winged creature the size of a Tyranid Warrior... this tail was tipped with a hollow tube, similar to a serpent's fang..."

I was very excited to make my version of the Parasite, he seems like a blast. Just from the name and feel of his story, I decided he needed feeder tendrils. The whole thing just has a very "B" movie monster quality to it that I find pretty endearing.

I used the main body of a Lictor with his tail bent around, I then added Hormagaunt legs, Genestealer rending claws, and the wings from a Dark Pegasus. Oh, plus the tongue from a Carnifex for the head crest....

I certainly get the "B movie" feel from the model. Your conversion seems to hit on exactly what you're going for.

Are you planing on converting up all of the new bugs, then?

Love it ... I went for more of a cross between a Tyranid Warrior and that Ork Boss Zagsrutt?!?

The Parasite is a joy in action... just pick out a squad of Guardsmen or Tau, detach from the Gargoyles and let the breeding begin...
