It Came From The Forums Alaric Cantonain's Ork /Tyranid Zybrids!! You Gotta See It To Believe It!
Old School here with another edition of It Came From the Forums. This time, we are taking a look at a very creative army that has bred ork with Tyranid into a race the galaxy could never possibly survive: The Zybrids! Let's take a look at this amazing army!
I have taken photos straight from the forum, so if the photos don't get as big as you like them when you click on them here, just follow the link at the bottom of the article.
I couldn't open with the dread and not show you more of it right away. More than just glueing parts together, the artist added details showing how the parts are bolted on and not only that, it looks great from the conversion to the color selection, this is pro work!
What goes better with Tyranids than Ultra Marine Tyranid hunters (look in the 4th ed codex new jacks). These guys and their battle wagon are perfect.
And just what the hell is this?
... Looted Warriors and Raveners as Killa Kanz! Orks can loot anything.
No Zybrid force would be complete without Genestealork Komandos.
Da Boyz. I have to take a moment and say that the conversion work on these heads and the genestealorks above is awesome and seamless.
And they don't just loot warriors, either.
This force also has its share of awesome characters like this 'Uge Friggin Guy and ...
... and the Mad Mek here. Holy crap, that is a great airship. I don't know what it counts as, but it is serious, whatever it is!
Of course, the Ultra Boyz need a hero as well. Who better than an ork with a Dreadnought force weapon for an arm.
As cool as this warboss is, he doesn't have anything on this Big Bug stompa below ...
... words do not describe ...
Just to prove that he isn't just good at hybrid models, his project log is full of great Ork conversions and paint jobs beyond the zybrids. Whether or not you want to see clean work or Zybrids, there is way more to this artist than what I showed off here, so hit up his thread for the Zybrids here and see where it takes you. Just watch out for the gribblies!
