The Hive #3 – Termagant Brood

I have been touching up some of the termagants I had painted years ago and I was trying to figure out how to do the bases when I stumbled upon the concept of 40k unit fillers.

The jungle plants are mounted on bases and they could be used as fillers and removed as casualties, but could also be used simply as scatter terrain outside of units.

Who could say there’s not a termie hiding behind those ferns, anyway, and who would want to check? But I did put a couple of critters dashing out from one of the bushes just to make the point.

In any case, I think they help blend the smaller broods together with the bigger tyranids and the large plants. I like the idea and I think I’ll be thinking about 40k unit fillers for other armies as well.

  1. Time to model a nervous looking space marine scout prodding gingerly at that vegetation with a long stick? πŸ˜‰ Seriously, nice work once again, I’m really enjoying seeing this project develop.

    1. Yep! I’m planning to have a matching space marine force and small dioramas on the 40mm terrain bases. Now I just have to figure out how to change the pose of my old metal scouts into a prodding stance… πŸ˜‰
