Default Tyranid wings, revisited

As I thought, the idea of insect wings for Tyranids has been thought of. This is a picture of wings made of cellophane packaging I believe, attached to a gaunt to make a gargoyle.

The person making these wings also suggests overhead transparencies. I think they look better than the standard gargoyle :.

Default Re: Tyranid wings, revisited

They are ok, but I do feel that Tyranids aren't all that insect like. They strike me as an insect/dinosaur/crustacean combo.

These are the wings I'm in the process of making:
