Default Hrud ?

Hi, i have built some Hrud out of extra Kaserkin i had lying about, they look quite good (in my humble estimation). The question is how do I use them, I was thinking about using them as Vespid in my Tau army. However I have extra skaven and Kaserkin. I was contemplating using the eldar rules however i am essentially limited to guardians.

So my question is what army should i model them on?

Thanks

Jon

Firstly, I would reccomend looking in Xenology - it has a picture of a Hrud IIRC, and can help you out immensely

I was always under the impression that they were a sort of skaven in space, type. So without mearly building skaven and sticking guns on them i went down a different route, however, i think you could be right about looking in the xenology section - problem is i have no idea where to find it.

thanks again
Jon

Unfortunately, Xenology is hard to get (if not OOP). I got mine on 'Noble Knight' for a descent price...you might want ot check eBay too.

Hope it helps a bit.

Xenology pretty much quashed the space skaven idea - they are very tentacly and gribbly IIRC.

Might be worth PM's Calmsword or Doombringer - they are some of our resident fluff gods, and might be able to show you a scan or something.

Edit: here we go - one Hrud.

Hey Rafe, where did you get that picture from?
Was it from Doombringer/Calmsword?
