Got the blue down!

Messy job as there's lots of hard to reach places - i got this model pre-assembled. I'd definitely leave the front talons off, or magnetise them.

Definitely a big beastie, a good way to end the event (assuming you complete..? tongue.png ). With my use of gaunts I will get one eventually I reckon, by then hopefully it'll be a bit better but it's one of the most nid units out there and will be an eye catching model on the table smile.png

For sure! I'm running a crusade campaign also, possibly one game type where the tervigon has a place. I also think that it'll get a major overhaul in the 9th ed codex. It has such potential to make you buy additional models.


Nids might be the one army that can/should legitimately break the 'reinforcement units cost points' rules of the game. You could just change that right now and it would make them a lot more compeititive I think, and give the army the endless horde feel that they have in the fluff.

I've dug through the Overkill box and got out all of the two armed GSC, there's 9 left. The question is, should I still go for a 24hr Challenge? Maybe....I'm doing some Orktoberfest boyz this week, so I won't be starting before next week anyway.

Right, I'm calling it done! A big beast to paint, but fun and fast with contrasts, there's still some work to do and the base, but it's ready for the table!

That Tervigon looks super cool, I've wanted to get one for ages, but keep putting it on the backburner for other armies. I wish I'd come to B&C earlier and seen this. I could have used a good excuse to work on my 100+ unpainted gaunts. XD

Still time for other completions - and to join in for a small vow Tawnis ;)

I would, but I'm neck deep in getting the rest of my Kroot painted for my local league. They're allowing unpainted models so long as the army gets progressively more painted every round. It was a good inspiration to get them done. 

 

I'll see if I can find some time to throw something together. My Tyranid scheme is pretty minimalistic because, you know, swarm and all that.

Talking of progress, I’ve just got back from holiday!

My vow is for 8 Genestealers for 8PL

I know I don’t have much time but I’ll go for it!

These are the last Tyranid models I have! So the timing of this event is perfect for me.

These models were supposed to be my September vow, but all I had time for was priming before family matters diverted all my time and energy. But even a late vow is still a vow, so on 1 October I started painting a few minutes here and there. I just finished the bases for the Tyranid Warriors this morning. So, to date my Tyranid army consists of...

 

  • HQ: 1 Broodlord 
  • TROOPS: 10 Genestealers, 10 Genestealers, 3 Tyranid Warriors
  • FAST ATTACK: 10 Gargoyles

med_gallery_49400_16060_710640.jpg

 

October was crazy busy so I didn't finish base painting until 23 Oct. All my washes and detailing was done from the 24th through this morning. Here are some more picks if you're a glutton for punishment......

 

Hidden Content

 

I still need one Heavy Support unit to round out my Tyranid army build project for the year. While waiting for paint to dry last night I processed and built the components for a Carnifex brood. Sooo..... since I still have a few days left in Octoberyes.gif  and to show that I've learned absolutely nothing about biting off more than I can chewno.gif...

 

I, Brother Lunkhead for the greater glory of Hive Fleet Zorak, vow to paint 3 Carnifexes (? Points/18 Power Rating) by the end of the October challengewacko.png 

 

Here's what I finished last night......

 

med_gallery_49400_16060_1894929.jpg

 

Late this afternoon I primed them:

Sp it has been an a long month, but I have this morning finished this month’s vow. I had hoped to finish last weekend or maybe earlier and do a second lot this month, but it was not to be.

Edit:

While packing up the three to clear my painting table I did a count of how many Treeranids I have left. Only 50 built and 1 unbuilt models to go as it stands. Or roughly 40% of the total as I have it.

So that plus figuring out and basing everything once it is finished means I am probably half done with the army. I guess I know what I am doing in next year’s A Bug’s Life (assuming it happens again).

Incidentally those two extended carapace genestealers are the final two miniatures from my very first box of minis, back in 2008. I never got around to painting them all until now.

Unfortunately my day, clear of plans rapidly filled up with interruptions, so for now, it looks like this will be it for October. If the Event is still open when I get home tomorrow, I'll try and finish off a few of the Cultists, they're all 30-50% done.

Great submissions gents! Some really excellent work going on.

Well I’ve finished my Genestealers on time!

With that I’ve painted all the Nids I have atm!

I have a massive backlog of other projects that I’ll need to make a dent in if I want more goodies for Christmas!!

Special thanks to Xenith for running this event, I don’t think I would’ve painted all these models without it.
