I converted and painted this Parasite of Mortrex when the last edition of the Tyranid Codex was released so this post is a bit of a ‘throwback thursday’. His background story so cool I just had to have one. I was pretty gutted when he was dropped from the current codex. I made his implant attack by converting a tail of a plastic ravener and attaching some genestealer rending claws and green stuffing an ‘opening’. I think Giger would be proud of this one. The victim is made from a Guardsman and a zombie with a greenstuff adrenal gland attached to his face. A genestealer’s implant attack tongue was used for the baby ripper bursting from his chest. I sold this model on eBay a couple of years ago. I might make another, but make the body more dynamic.
