That isn't a

conversion!

Thats a work of modelling art. That thing deserves a new species!

Something along the lines of the rules of Old One Eye. I could work on some if you want.

Wow,
That

was quick I just posted him.

That sounds really cool if you want to make some

fluff or a story or rules etc.
Please by all means yes.
I would totaly like

that.

And thanks for the great feedback.

I also thought he turned

out great.
Now the hard part, paint him to show how cool he really is.
Thats

the hard part.

Thanks all talk to you later.

Thanks and no problem. What are you going to call it (I think it's the creator&#

039;s duty to name something like this).

Edit - I've just done the

creature's rules, but it requires a name. Then I'll post them, thanks in

advance.

It's better

then the original, but I had those for like a year now, just taking up space on my Hard

Drive until I found them again lol. Anyways, here's what I've got in the

way of rules for it. Please note that it's name have been replaced with [

insert name here] things until we or you finally decide upon a name.

"It

was a massive centipede creature that ran across the plains towards us. When we got near,

some sort of energy leapt from before it's head and blew a hole in our Leman Russ.

Alpha squad tried driving it back with lasgun fire, but it was too late, it was upon us

oooo that

sounds deadly... i like the model... you paint good.. but i dont like that paint scheme

(sorry) its painted nice but it doesnt make it look viciose (SP?) its not scary... well

im sure if a 20 foot monster with legs that are super sharp with a million horns walked

up to me i would SH*T myself.... but the models paint scheme... i dunno i think if you

had a different scheme it would be a golden demon winner easy... i mean its the best

conversion ive seen on a fex... but ergh i cant get over the paint scheme..
<br /

>well good job ne way it really does look nice
