First up, Flying Hive Tyrant from hive fleet Gargamel (forgive the lack of good lighting)

That flyrant is lovely and I like the tail being used as a flying stand. :D

I'm going for Leviathan, though a slight variant of the colour scheme.

 

So far I've painted a Norn Queen ... or maybe a baby Gaunt. Who knows :)

Indeed it is, as much as I'd like to take credit for it.

D'oh! Shows how much I know about current Tyranid models, eh? blush.png  Another great reason to get the xenos in here! Know thy enemy.

I need to get new picks, these old ones appear to have been taken by a hack who didn't know what he was doing whistling.gif .

How he got into my house to take pictures of my tyranid army and upload them to my photobucket account I may never know.

Love all the old school warriors you have there.

Here's a Lictor I did a while ago, the idea was it was just popping out of the snow with the camouflage blending out to it's normal tones.

Well it's been a while since I painted any of my nids or used them but they will always be one of my core forces, 

last time I managed a painting spree I was following along with "facing the grey Tides" a tail of painters and managed a fair bit of painting. 

With a solid bunch painted up including

Malenthrope%2BFully%2BFinnished.jpg

and

Hive%2BTyrant%2Bside.jpg

 

however I got significantly behind thanks in part to a bonkers amount of overtime and then this happened.

Arrrg%2BCrash.jpg

which killed my mojo. But with 8th Hive fleet Mantis will live again.

Great works everyone, I will soon post my Kraken-Colored beasts (I came to fall short of love for that scheme, so I'm in a bit of trouble and looking for variations).

 

I especially like what Mechanist had done with cold palette here! I really suggest the idea of creatures from the frozen outer space

Alright. Nid players unite. I love it. Great stuff everyone. Really dig hive fleet mantis! Brave color choices. I am currently slaving away trying to get all my Nids painted for 8th. Lots of WIPs. Here's a shot of one of my tyrannofex's that is all finished up. so good to see the great devourer on this forum finally!

Thanks guys. That Tyranofex looks brilliant AdeptusPictus.
I'll have to get the Tyrant fixed up and work out where I got to with the models waiting to be finished.

Thanks Mechanist! Inquisitor Q, that is a good looking force. I haven't tried allying with the cult yet. Make sure to post how things shake out in 8th ed gameplay. Here's another old monster while I finish up all my new stuff!

Love that classic Termagant with his giant devourer and cheesy grin. He just looks so pleased with himself.

Haha I got almost 150 of those little bastards, so 30 of them got devourers. I do love their little grins, though.

It was a much friendlier time wasn't it? Everybody was smiling and a carnifex just wanted to give you hugs.

I wasn't around for Mr. Hugs, but it did sound like a happier time; a simpler time.

I have 48 of them. Which was enough because I only screened things with them.

Just out of interest, when were Xenos let into B&C, back when I joined it was Imperium only. I mean I welcome the fact it is now tolerant of the xenoform and encouraging diversity in all it's glorious shapes and sizes but somewhere I missed the memo they were welcome msn-wink.gif
 

For some unknown reason I can't seem to embed the picture I wanted to, something to do with image extensions. But if you're interested in the Hive Fleet Gorgon Ferron Splinter Fleet they're showcased here:
