Yet another Blind Bag pony from the Wave 5 (the wave with the Alicorn special character.. this is not an Alicorn model) met its final moments under my scapel, only to be reborn like Philomene ... but in a far more sinister version.
Afraid of insects?
In the 41st milennia and there is only war. The Empress of Ponykind has sent her Space Marine Ponies to defend the Empire against the heretic, the mutant and the Xenos.
Amongst the most alien are the Tyranid, a race of creatures from beyond the galaxy with only one goal on their hive mind: Devour.
Travelling on vast hive fleets, they besiege the World of the Empire, devouring everything in their path.
Afraid of Tyranids?
You should be.
With the use of a rearing Pegasus model and the heavy old Tyranid Ravener model, this creation came into being.
The old metal models are pretty damn heavy and it took some fiddling for me to figure out how to work it and how to make it all work together with the upper body of a pony.
Next challenge was the colour scheme.
I initially wanted to make it Hivefleet Kraken, but it just didn't look right, so after a few attempts of painting and re-painting (and adding slime and removing it again), I stripped off the paint (very carefully, the spines on the back turned out to be rather fragile) and started over with these colours. I am much more pleased with this result.
Hey ho hey ho, into the "ponies for sale" we go...
