I like the concept of flying ripper swarms, thought I would buy some I was looking at these.
These are Forgeworld's version and for the low low price $33.50 (for nine total winged bugs) I can order them from the UK, wait while they ship and then fix the bad quality sculpts that Forgeworld is known for. I say no thank you to that.
I am starting off with Warhammer Quest bats got them from eBay, Using the painted one and a broken one then reselling the rest of the lot. I will have less than $2.00 in the bats. (WINNING)
Also using 2 different jumping sculpts of ripper bodies, any Tyranid player will have tons of these. Lets call them free with purchase of other plastic crack.
Using a Hobby saw and clippers I cut the bats in half and then carved the body away, leaving 2 sets of wings.
Some glue and GreenStuff later, I now have 2 different winged rippers ready to be molded and cast.
$2.00 is so much better than $33.00
