Pictsies

The idea and name for these came from 'The Wee Free Men' by the late Sir Terry Pratchett. GW goblins were ideal as they fitted the anarchic style of the Wee Free Men. However, it couldn't be just another goblin army. So blue instead of green and themed. It became a bit of an obsession, so ended up way over the top in numbers. Anyway, here they be och aye the noo:

Tyranids

The old army expanded by another 12 elements:

The lot:

Hive Tyrant:
Brood Lord:
Zoanthrope:
Carnifex
 
Genestealers:
Hormagaunts:
Termagants:
Gargoyles:
Ripper Swarms:
Brood Nest:

Thinking of putting together a simplified version of the original Warhammer 40K rules for the 40K armies as an alternative to HOTT.  As the different factions have different characteristics which are lost in HOTT, it may be interesting to se how modified rules will play out.  I've never played the Warhammer game itself so have no real comparator.  Another task for the winter evenings.
