Slitherqueen- Waterbugz Converted Hive Tyrant

By Rob Baer | March 19th, 2010 | Categories: Conversions, Tyranids, Warhammer 40k, Waterbugz

Hey everyone. I’m back with what I think is my best bug conversion to date; The Slitherqueen.  This baddie will be the leader of my Waterbugz as they decimate the Ultramar sector, or at least central Virginia lol.  Well as you can see I used the same theme as my Slitherfexes, but added some armor plating on the front.

So I started the model out the same as my other ‘fexes, okay actually I stole the lower torso from one- cause lets face it I don’t need to run six Carnifexes anymore. Then I added the Hive Tyrant torso, and some extra spikey plates in the back.

She’s armed with twin Devourers (or I guess now they are Brainleech worms?), Bonesword and Lash Whip.  When I was dry-fitting everything together I didn’t really like the pose of the Lash Whip bit that comes with the Tryant, so I had to come up with something better suited to what I wanted.

I ended up using another Devourer bit, and a Venomthrope whip I had left over from making the Slitherguard– hey that model comes with four Lash Whips, might as well get my monies’ worth!  Then I puttied up the gap, and viola insta-whip! Now I just need to find a fast way to make boneswords, lol.

Okay so here’s a better look at my new pet, from both sides.  If you haven’t seen the rest of my Waterbugz conversions you can check them out here.

So what do you think about The Slitherqueen? I suppose I’ll have to work on a Swarmlord next…
