The Parasite and Friends!

"...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..."

This is a list that I purposely put some fun units into, as well as cut out the spam, mainly for video battle report purposes. The Parasite is one of my favorite HQs, but there aren't a lot of cool places to deploy him (too bad I don't have any Sky-Slashers!) When I decided I wanted a Carnifex brood with a Prime attached, I decided why not throw the Parasite with them. I'm also going to throw down a unit of Stealers in a Spore, might be good, never seen it done. So here is the goofy 1850 list:

The Parasite of Mortrex 160
Tyranid Prime w/ Bonesword & Lash Whip, Adrenal Glands 105
Hive Guard *2 100
Ygmarl Genestealers*8 184
Termagaunts *10 50
Tervigon w/ Catalyst 175
Warriors *4 120
10*Genestealers w/ Toxin Sacs, Broodlord 216
in Spore 40
Carnifex w/ Frag Spines *2 330
Trygon 200
Mawloc 170

Like I said, very goofy, but I think a lot of those units will be fun to play with...

Really like the pose you have captured here with the figure. Nice work as always.

Gargoyles. Gargoyles, Gargoyles, Gargoyles. They provide a mass of cheap ablative wounds for him, aren't instakilled by Multilasers/Autocannon/etc (seriously, why don't Rippers have Eternal Warrior? Why can one Power Fist punch two hundred of them at once?) and are decent in a melee fight themselves.

Failing that, Shrikes aren't bad either, as they're another fast choppy unit.

And yeah, a nice conversion there. He looks very dynamic, which can be tough to do with flying models.

Still one of my favorite color schemes on the web. Nice conversion as well.
