Default Trygon

So it turns out I have one of the best games workshop staff members in the WORLD...
To explain, I was talking to him about my new tyranid army and he shows me part of his collection (the big creatures) as I was wondering what to equip my tyrant with...
Anyway, he pulls out this awesome converted trygon and just gives it to me!!
So I decided to show you guys and see what you think, thank you for any kind comments.
Ollie.
(Sorry if these pics don't work, I haven't done this before).

Looks like a pretty nice conversion.

Not sure whether it is the pictures or not but that base is shocking.

Once upon a time, a Trygon was waltzing through a field of grass...

...And Tyranid players died of disgust


I'd scratch that off and redo it, or just go over it, get rid of it by any means necessary.

Is the model painted? It looks like it could be done in the Alien movie style, or perhaps it is just base coated.

All criticisms aside, to be given that model means that that guy is indeed the best games workshop staff member ever. And you are a very lucky person ;D

Maybe, since he's a GW employee, he knows that the
new Dex will have a Trygon, and it'll be smaller, and thats why he's giving that one away, since it'd be easy as hell to target with TLOS.

In any case, nice score. Wouldn't mind having one of those on my display table, once it's painted of course

@PNW: I don't think he gave me the trygon for such a cynical reason... :P Wouldn't anyone want such a cool model?

@Jesterofthecourt: Thanks, and it's based with sand :P

Mostly green stuff but there's definately a lashwhip in there (or something metal).

I would be happy with this, if someone gave it to me. Even if it had a horrible paintjob. Pretty cool converted model and a nice guy to just give it away.
