Delusion? Or Genius?

So while I was scheming about my Tervigon conversion, I had an idea:

All those Rippers we all have kicking around? And all that extra space on the MC bases?

I was thinking of magnetizing 6 rippers onto my next Trygon's base, and pulling them off as wound markers.

What do you think?

Alright, it was Paddy's idea!  I'm scared to contradict him.

Prepare yourselves for the world's laziest Tervigon conversion... And a status update!

Hello, everyone!

I will remind you again that this is representative of my conversion/painting skills

Just a super-quick post to update on my progress with all the new acquisitions, and I can tell you that my league starts in mid-February, but I'm doing well enough here that I may actually be able to play my first game before then.  I know I haven't been keeping up with my posting, but in my defense, you don't want to hear about me working or see pictures of grey plastic models :)

Also I finally figured out what I'm going to do about Tervigon conversions!

But first, an update of where I'm at:

We're Back! And we have a 1500 point 'Nid list for your consideration!

Well here I am on the last day of my holiday, finally returned to the city, ready to build up the Hive Fleet and play in a league!

Hive Fleet Turbo-Ants Cheerleading Squad 2011

I appreciate those who visited during Men With Toy Soldiers' hiatus, and now it's time to get back on attack.

So when we left off, I had asked for input regarding a 1500 point list using primarily what I had available in order to participate in an upcoming league with a 'Golden Standard' of 1500 points.  I got lots of good input, and was told quite firmly that I could not bring Swarmy in a 1500 point list (especially with two Trygons!), and now I think we're on the home stretch for what I'll start off with.

Be warned:  this list may shock your Net List sensibilities!  We have foot slogging Zoanthropes, Genestealers, and a Gargoyle blob!  There are no T-Fexes, no Harpies, and only one Tervigon!
