Well, Its been a while since I've been here, and about as long since I've picked up a brush. But since the announcement of 8th edition, it seemed like a good time to get back into things and start the Tyranids that I have been putting off for so long.

Here is some WiP shots, mostly done, just need some touch-ups and bases.

Any C&C is appreciated.

Thanks! I was going for something relatively quick / easy that wouldn't crush my soul when having to paint dozens of models.

Thanks! Im rather enjoying it.

Got an order in the other day, picked up a tervigon and some termagants to flesh out my nids a little more, and so far, the gants are built and primed, and the tervigon is half-built.

On the weekend I got poking around for some bits and ended up stumbling across something: 1500 points worth of Grey Knights that I had forgotten about... so they are getting a fresh coat of paint! Hopefully ill get a chance to get some pics up soon.

Cheers!

Its amazing what you can just forget about! I had originally picked them up when they finally released the plastic kits... so they've been around for a while.

I ended up getting some work done on my Tyranids, built and basecoated the Tervigon and did a bunch of work on some termagants, but im not entirely sure about the gun color:

What do you guys think? Does the purple work?

I think the purple works quite well. I'd even suggest to use the purple for the tongues of your Nids. Might look nice on your Hormagaunts and bind them together with the armed Termagaunts.

Well, its been a bit since I have posted an update, as things have been pretty busy.

I have, however, been able to do some work on my nids, and even acquired a few more...

I also picked up a toxicrene... and did some work on his base:

I was going for a impact-into-sand look, and hopefully once its painted, it will convey it a bit better than just primed in white.

Just a quick update, as I havent been doing a whole lot on the hobby front lately.

I recently received some aquarium plants that I had ordered for my nid bases and managed to get a few done. Still have 4 hormagaunts to do, and then will start in on the termagants.

I like the effect that the plants give. As well as the contrasting colours making it simple and easy for people to identify the model on the base (and the terrifying aspect of the fighters on the ground seeing the creatures darting through the plants as they approach).

I agree with Koonitz, it's a very nice contrast! Though I'd be worried about it making handling a horde of hormagaunts a bit difficult on the battlefield, especially when piling in?

Hormagaunts are already a pain in the butt on the table when piling in, worse than pretty much everything but maybe Necron Wraiths. I don't think the plants change that too much. Plus they look rad.
