Default Genestealer Hybrids

Hi...

I was reading the leaked unofficial Tyranid Codex in progress - and to my delight I compared the stats of the lowly Gaunt and witnesses it could be armed with a new rifle that matches the range of the lowly lasgun with the same strength but being an assault weapon. This got me looking twice on the box of Cadian troopers and started to get the idea of some genestealer infected humans with increased Initiative and fleet due to their metabolished adrenaline glands. This idea isnt new but I would like to hear your idea's on a conversion project of turning the normal human model into something slightly alien.

As a reference I remember som hybrid models armed with laspistols/autoguns led by a magus - these appeared in a old dusty WD and were robed with sligthly bulbous heads - I know it isnt possible to reach that kind of look as it would require loads of green stuff and hours of work - but what can I do to get the hybrid look without making them appear like a Centaur (half horse/half human) ?

with any conversion like this you are obviously going to need some greenstuff, but something else you could try is 'cutting and pasting' ,basically taking the toxin sacs or whatever and putting it in a cool looking position.
I think that an extended carapace on each shoulder would look quite cool and probably work with a bleached bone/ skull white dominated flesh.

Hope it works!

Which is a confirmed fake. http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=80603.0

But sitll the idea seems interesting enough anf would make for a cool conversion.

Its a good idea(I didnt check BONEGUARD's link) but I'm thinking an IG some with some pieces from a hormagaunt. Not sure what pieces though...
I think that a dreadnought with pieces of Carnifex would be insane... > if you know what pieces to put....

Or again a spacemarine....

Anyways I really like the idea. :

Default Another idea

'Cause we're talking about hybrids,
what about a canifex/necron hybrid!?
use the regeneration head and paint it with metallic necron colours!
then use the green bars with a venom canon.
oh, and Tassadar?
your idea ROCKS!

Doubtful. Necron leave no body behind and I doubt genestealer could infiltrate them and live.
