Last night I started to work on my tyrannocyte. I knew that I wanted to magnetize the top and bottom so I could play it as either the tyrannocyte or sporocyte. The first thing I did was build the top and bottom of the pod. I was a bit disappointed about how these came together. I need to look to see how others have dealt with the seams to make mine look better. I might try some liquid greenstuff.
After the pod was assembled I took some greenstuff and used it to hold the magnets in place. I used the seams to line it up.
After a night of drying I place it together and while there is a noticeable seam, I think it will look ok. I don't think I can get away from that seam since they will not be glued together. I plan to add more greenstuff to reinforce these magnets so they don't look so fragile.
While waiting for the greenstuff to set I decided to build up the spores. I used on of the base tentacle so that the mucolid will attach to the base then I used the side tentacles to fill in the rest of the spots. I think the over all effect works.
I plan on using some extra scything talons in place of the tentacles on the Tyrannocyte. I think it will be cool. I think it will be something like this.
I will continue to work on this guy. While the kit is huge. It is not as big as I had first thought. I plan on just using the deathspitters on the top and just let my opponent know if it is something else. I really don't think I want to use a BS2 blast that has to target the nearest enemy. It is just begging for a bad scatter.
Have a good one...
