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...

Christmas Carnifex to All

Amid all the craziness today, I managed to find time to paint this cute little guy. I am planning on playing a Brood of two with a Prime and the Parasite of Mortrex attached. Should be pretty interesting, fun little unit...

Battle Reports

Not a big post, just letting everyone know that I added a new gadget with links to all the BoLS battle reports I feature in on the right-hand side. This will be updated and added to as I do more reports. I'll also mention that I just added Force Organization tags, so those are a fun way of looking through stuff here.

Ancient Viridian, Master of the Depths

Quintus Viridian was Captain of the Lamenters 7th Company from 576-603.M39. He was gravely injured by an Eldar Aspect warrior on the world of Karamet, and was interned in the Dreadnought 'Malfeasance', an unfortunately named machine. Viridian goes to battle armed with a Mk IV 'Heavenshard' Fragmentation Cannon, which is in reality is simply a missle launcher loaded with glass cylinders. It was a miracle he survived the Badab War, as during the rebellion he became one of Huron's closest advisers. It was later ruled that Viridian had secretly been trying to undermine Huron the entire time. So it is, that two millenia later, Ancient Viridian still battles the foes of the Emporer.
