Tyranid Harpy Conversion - Hive Fleet Muggis

A while back I had decided I wanted to try out everything in the Tyranid codex for fun. I had read all about the tournament lists with multiple trygons, tervigons, etc. I wanted to try every single piece of the puzzle and see if there was anything hiding. (Except for the pyrovore!).

I set out to built a Harpy about a month ago. I had the plan in my head - I had an Old One Eye body laying around and some trygon parts would go for the tail. From the carnifex kit I pulled some venom cannons, scything talons, and head. Balrog wings and a flyer base rounded out the model.

He came out pretty well, and people LOVED him at the tournament yesterday. Like I said in my previous post, I am humbled by the way people talk about my army sometimes. One regular wanted me to make a harpy for him, lol!

Some photos:


You can see him in battle vs Daemons here:


  1. Love this conversion. Post it at the SA painting thread!!!

  2. Wish we could have seen more of the in-process pics.

  3. SamIAm, I will be doing another one of these, so I'll make sure to take in-process pixxx.
