Norn-queen model

As can see above, my Norn-queen conversion.... The empty wallet! How else do you expect all those tyranids to be created? I managed to finish making my second Tervigon, which led me to needing to buy those 12 more gaunts I was planning on getting. Plus my friend gave me some extra guns so I can finally switch out the spinefists on my old gaunts. I'll eventually (with in three years maybe) get them all painted like the others, just like here.

Velociraptor awareness!

Today, Sunday April 18th, is Velociraptor awareness day.

What few people fail to realize is that the actual species named V. mongoliensis, while Velociraptor is actually a subfamily/genus name. The actual velociraptor is only about the size of a turkey, and may be avoided by most non-pedestrians with ease. The creature to be aware of is the Deinonychus. This is the creature that was the basis for Jurrasic park. Shortly after the films release, another even more dangerous raptor form was discovered. The Utahraptor is a monstrousity of the raptor family that should be avoided at all costs.

Ard Boyz option 2

I need to be less of a think-tank, and get more practice games in.

I had another idea for a possible Ard boyz list. I was toying around with the idea of a HQ tervigon for a smaller point list. I had orginally been against the idea of a Tervigon as an HQ, the only role in my mind for this Trooper-pooper is to fill a troop slot with six T6 wounds. But if one is a troop choice, and the second is Hq, then I have a very large troop potential for 400pts.

A possible merger?

It seems the Back 40k is the new prey.... I mean predator... wait what?
That's right, I've been invited to join those seeming Imperium loyalists over at the Back 40k and have accepted, seeing as it was them that got me started blogging in the first place. Not to worry though, for now I'm keeping Predators and Prey up and running, but it will be focused more on my Works in progress and minor battle reports that I haven't wanted to drown my blog in. Tournament posts and other reviews will most likely be posted at Back40k. I'll make sure to Cross-link articles of worth from time to time. I hope I am able to keep up the posts and I'll look forward to everyone's comments either here or there.

I've went ahead and got my first post on The Back 40k
Army goals; surviving and killing

So everyone watch out! There is a new Predator stalking The Back 40k!

Let's hunt!

Adding a little character

My Chosen Chaos Marines. Nine veterans elite, five with plasma guns.

This past week I've been playing my newly formed Chaos company. My last few Tyranids are on the painting table, and they may be the topic of my next post, we'll see. Looking at the differences between these two armies, something hit me. I actually enjoy assembling my Chaos marines. For the nids the bodies are pretty much set, and there are almost no variance in the head, all you get to change is the position of the arms. With two sets of arms, there is limited room for cool poses, unless you fully plan it out. Not to mention that each Space marine can essentially be equipped differently, and have cool accessory pieces. All tyranids in a squad are equipped the same, and even if I decorate them, they are just a mutation, nothing more.
And so I realized, my CSM can actually have character and personality.

The Unredeemed

Those weak of mind are sought out. Those craving power search them out. The Ruinous Powers of the warp toy with the minds of mortals and twist the bodies to their wills. By some strand of fate, The Lords of Chaos have called out to me and I have answered their call.
