Inspired by the new Aliens VS Predator movie coming out I dug out all my old Aliens VS Predator novels, toys, comics and all that I had as a kid I was thinking about making a Tyranid army. But then I asked myself about the Predators, I'd never even heard of an army themed around them, while it's pretty common that tyranid players try to base their armies off of Aliens. Have any of you ever seen an army based of the hunters?
Originally I thought of using tau but the preds are pretty kick ass in cc and tau couldn't mimic that at all but then I changed directions twoards eldar which would consist of heavy customizing on an eldar Ulthwé strike force and then for tournament sake just play it as said force. .
Cut the heads a bit shorter so they're not so cone-headed and try to make them resemble a predator mask using green stuff. And for the minis that come w/o helments, try to use green stuff to get four mandibles on the face. Also using it to place the wrist blades and shoulder cannons.
Thats just a few ideas so far, tell me what you think of the whole concept and any input you have.
Oh and I forgot to mention another idea....
Since the preds like to flaunt their skull trophies and all, I could mix it up between puttin human and nid heads etc. on some of their shoulders or hanging on their chests like the preds will have.
