Well, I guess we can call this part two of the concept art extravaganza for the forthcoming army of evil snowmen.
This one did not come out quite as well for the simple fact that I did not know what I wanted the end product to be when I started drawing. For me, it's the equivalent of getting in your car and driving when you don't really have a destination. You just sort of wander.
Nevertheless, I did determine how I think I am going to translate the Hive Guard idea into snowman form, even if the gun itself is a bit of a work in progress, conceptually. Who knows, if I find good bitz maybe I really will use a hollow log as an Impaler Cannon. It's the one Tyranid weapon I NEED to use a fluffy snow idea for, since I don't think there is a way to just buy the bitz for the Impaler cannon. It seems pretty integral to the Hive Guard model to me. If any of you out there have one you don't want, do feel free to let me know.
As far as construction goes, there are a few options available to me. I think I have an idea of how I want to go with this, but I will keep that to myself for the time being. I'd rather find out if it is going to work before I let you all know, just to save myself a little embarrassment if it flops.
Edit: Like I said, there might be errors in terminology with this. I realized when I got home that Hive Guard have Hardened Carapace, not Bonded ExoSkeleton. You get what I'm shooting for...
