Hello B&C, I've started a Tyranid army.
There are a couple of goals I have while creating this army.
My Heretics Astartes army is a project that has spanned over a decade and has always been rife with experimentation between making models and choosing color schemes. The result of this, perhaps fittingly, is a chaotic army with no focus, a multicolored warband from across all time and place. It sounds pretty cool when I put it that way but the army has always trailed a huge pile of shame, half finished ideas, and mental turmoil.
So with these Tyranids I plan on avoiding this. I spent some time dialing in a simple, but effective, scheme that focuses on balancing creation speed with both eye candy situations (up close under a white light, and on the table top with some less intense lighting).
These warriors take me less than an hour each from sprue to painted, and the plan is to finish each box before I purchase another, leaving no nid behind.
I figured I would whip up a quick blog so others can watch this hive grow from a little spore lost in hyperspace. The goal is creation speed, and hopefully through sharing I can learn from the B&C community to make this hive something better then I could do on my own.
