Hey erveryone,

 

Now that this forum finally has a Xenos section, I guess I can post my WIP Tyranid force here. I started these guys with 8th after long coveting them and debating getting started on them. 8th was a great excuse, so here goes!

 

Here's a group shot of what I've painted so far, I'll post individual units after this:

The Swarmlord:

 

Love this guy, he's an absolute beast and public enemy number one in my army. He needs some Tyrant Guard which I'm debating buying next, (Hive Guard are also tempting!)

Warriors and Alpha:

 

I have a load of Lashwhip/Bonesword Warriors waiting to be rebased on the proper base size, but here's my Heavy Weapon Warriors and Alpha I've painted so far.

Exocrine:

 

This boy is my artillery beast - I'm ever a Guard player at heart - which sadly has made him a priority target in most games. Gotta love spewing out all that Damage 2 Plasma with no Gets Hot though.

Termagants and Rippers:

 

And finally - for now - my Devourer Termagants and Rippers. Still got plenty more Devogants to paint up, I'm fond of having 30 pop up with a Trygon Prime for a ferocious fusillade of horrific bioweaponry¬

Coffee, what in the world is that? It looks the stuff of nightmares

 

Haha, that's the aim! 

 

It's a Trygon Prime, but I thought it would look really imposing with wings. The ground on your flank trembles, causing ruins to tumble. Suddenly it bursts forth from the ground, erupting in an explosion of rock and dust. It stretches its wings wide, blocking the sun and sky, unleashing a horrendous screech that chills the blood in a man's veins.

 

Then the chittering horde rushes forth from the tunnel as it surges into combat, and you now know all hope is lost.

Good grief, that Trygon Prime truly is the stuff of nightmares. :ermm:

Excellent work, CoffeeGrunt. Though I find your lack of properly-based models disturbing. ;)

They're all based now, I just tend to take pics once the painting phase is over. The basing is just wet mud anyway, so its absence isn't that big a deal. :)

I think it adds a lot to the overall look of each model but fair enough. :)

What can we expect to see next?

I've been consumed with my Guard lately, but I'm hoping to get back on the Nids when the Codex lands. What I'll paint next will depend on how the army is looking when it's updated. :)

WIP on my Flyrant, still to do final highlights and tidying up. First proper painting session I've had in a month though!

Got a good ol' fashioned Dakkafex painted up. Still to do final tidy up, minor details and basing, but the bulk of it is done:

I need to work out a better lighting and camera setup that looks less terrible for these pics...

Got the Nids together for a shoot to help motivate my painting. Quite pleased with how much I've gotten done so far, but as you can see I've barely dented the horde of little critters!
