Thanks very much Mithrilforge!

I appreciate that. I have a limited budget for hobby, so less money spent on paint is more money for models!!!

I like the idea of throwing an orange into the mix but I’ve got too far through to be assed to redo what I’ve done!

Thanks again.

Haha, understood !. As I said,I love the scheme as is.
Yeah I feel ya... models and budgets, we’re not young single guys without kids and our disposable incomes are much less disposable ;-)

Cheers, Mithril

Too right mate!! There's always something!

 

OK, I said I'd do something a bit larger and I finally finished it!

 

Here's my Tyranofex:

 

 

 

Now I know it's probably not the most effective of Models rules wise but I just love the look of it!!

 

Next up for the Tyranids will be a Tyranid Prime!

 

As always thanks for looking.

Thanks Mithril! 

 

I'd decided I wanted a Tyranid Prime to buff my Warriors.  

 

 

 

I converted him using the bitz from the Warriors set and a Lictor!

Really happy.

 

Next up will be some Hormagaunts, hopefully once I've completed them GW will open.

 

Thanks for looking, I hope everyone is staying well and getting some hobby done!!

Loving the muted, realistic colors!

I used the metal legs off an old hive tyrant to similarly elevate my Prime, looks good!

Thanks very much Azekai!

Though I have to admit I used the fine caste legs so cutting was a lot easier than trimming down metal!

Would like to see your Prime if you have pics?

Both conversions are well done. By the looks of it the old metal legs are taller, so your Prime would be slightly larger.

Thanks for sharing!
