As someone set the East Coast Weather Dominator to "Hoth" today, I thought I'd a do a bits box delve and work on my proof-of-concept model for the Tyracron army: the Tyracron Warrior. Seen here with his trusty Gauss Spitter, this thing took a little time to actualize, but it paid off.
I started with the obvious, first: I cut away the tail from the crotch piece (the Necrons don't have tails) and then glued on the 'Cron warrior gun arms and Nid talons. The legs were a pain in the ass, b/c the Nid legs are too... buggy. I needed more "athletic robot" looking ones, and cut a pair of Tau battlesuit legs to fit the bill. The head was another story. A Necron head is too small, and the Nid torso, as you Nid modelers know, has that horn nub in front in lieu of a neck. A Necron head there or in the vast pit immediately behind it looked silly. Likewise, shearing away the little head of a scarab to use him to bulk out the Necron head looked equally dumb (remember Londo from Babylon 5?). Then I had that familiar impulse, and set to work. I sheared away the top of the Necron head, bored out the Scarab's head, and attacked both to the newly spare tail I had lying around. Voila! A serpentine biomechanoid-looking head.
There are some issues with the Tau feet; I need to stick 'em on there at another angle and make sure it has the structural integrity to keep him up. I thought about giving him some kind of power spines or something like the Doom, but decided that sort of thing was for the bigger Tyracrons.
