Last year I scratch built some alien bio-ships for Stars & Lasers, I looked everywhere to buy some but just couldn't find many that I liked… so I went through my bits box and put together some ships using Tyranid / Genstealer bits.

I still have enough bits to hopefully make a heavy cruiser and a fighter carrier, just need the time.

Nice! I've had a similar project in mind for many years. That project has pretty much stalled at the 'cool concept' stage. Your's gives me inspiration.

They look suitably menacing and have that shudder effect that all good monsters should evoke.Superb effort , thankyou for sharing.

Great scratch builds and a good choice in the color palette.

Great looking and menacing ships

Thanks guy's for all your comments.
I had fun making them and they were real quick to paint, the photo's are not that great so don't really show the paint that well.

I have now done some corvettes to go with them which are here -


Still need to make a couple more ships then the fleet is done… and I have also run out of Tyranid bits!

Probably leftover parts from Dropfleet Commander's Scourge faction would work well too.

@billclo thanks I will look out for some of those, I have seen the ships they look nice.
