40k Tournament

Recently I've been busy priming and painting a bunch of models for a Warhammer 40k tournament in September. I'm assembling a Tyranid "Godzilla" army, an army made of mostly large monstrous creatures. The models are assembled, including magnetic arm sockets on all of the monstrous creatures, but most are not primed or painted yet. I'll have to hurry then...

The main hive tyrant with two tyrant guards. I bought the tyrant already painted, and the scheme is what I'm using for all the other monstrous creatures, but the tyrant has been modified to use magnets.

The carnifex I bought with the above hive tyrant. I modified it to have both big guns as a gunfex.
A new hive tyrant I built with wings and two twin-linked devourers. (really nasty weapons) I still have to prime and paint him.
Two identically equipped carnifexes (carnifices?) with two pairs of twin-linked devourers. Notice the green stuff I used to secure the magnets. These will be covered by the spray primer and paint.
My close combat carnifex, Gene Simmons.
Most of the big guys together. I'll have to post more photos once I paint more of them.

Personhood and the Twilight Zone

This is an interesting discussion about the philosophy of personhood from a (classic) Twilight Zone episode, with comments skirting into Battlestar Galactica. :)

This is the final performance of Farfour, the Palestinian Mickey Mouse rip-off.
