A BUG'S LIFE

A Monthly Tyranids Painting Challenge

 

med_gallery_58096_13272_7792.jpg

 

 

This week a new painting event launches in the Tyranids Section of the forum. The Challenge? Paint at least one TYRANIDS model per month - including Codex Tyranids, GSC and Forgeworld models. Taking part is simple:

 

  1. Pledge your models
  2. Paint your models
  3. Enjoy your army of bugs

 

A lot of people have the odd Tyranid model lying around, usually from Battleboxes or Boxed Games, so if you want some motivation to paint them up, skitter on over to the Tyranids Section of the forum and join the Hive Fleet - The event and pledges, progress etc will be organised from there. What's more you'll get to add this cool badge to your signature:

Doh!

 

Accidentally posted my pledge in Nids even though it's a GSC pledge. I will put subsequent pledges here.

 

It was a Young Patriarch BTW (the Space Hulk patriarch- like the nid Broodlord, but different base). I have to add the adjective, because as he levels up in the Crusade, he'll be replaced- first with the Classic metal running Patriarch (at Heroic level) and then with the Classic metal Throned Patriarch (at Legendary). When the pics come, I'll put them here too.

Heya Penitent one, you did right, if you can post all pledges in the Tyranids Section, it keeps things easier for me!

 

Looking forward to stuff getting paint!

What a monthm thanks for joining in guys, I'm super pleased at the talent and motivation we have in our little Tyranids forum! Last month, the first month of the first A Bug's Life event, saw 12 Hive Commanders sign up and pledge to embiggen their swarms, with nearly a 100% completion rate. Between us, we managed to paint 98 wounds worth of biomass, which is ~45.8 Power worth of Tyranids, just shy of about a thousand point army, which is pretty awesome in my opinion. 

 

For interest, and to foster a little competitiveness among the Hive Fleets, below I've organised the entrants by completed PL - Out in front we Have Jud Cottrel and Brother Lunkhead with 7PL completed each, completing 3 Zoanthropes and a Broodlord respectively, followed closely by Rogue's GSC Abominant for 6 PL. Special mention also goes to Ruskinses who painted 20 wounds worth of models, Arson Fire with 14 Wounds, Trokair with 10 wounds of Termegants - Definitely masters of the Swarm!

 

Total PL painted so far/Frater/Vow for July

 

Jud Cottrell3 Hive Guard (6 PL)

Brother Lunkhead:

Rogue3 Acolytes (1.8 PL)

Xenith:

Ruskinses:

4.5 Arson Fire

Azekai20 Termegants + 3 spore mines (7 PL)

Trokair4 Warriors + 5 Stealers (9 PL)

2.5 Halandaar1 Carnifex (6 PL)

1.5 WarriorFish:

0.3 Grotsmasha1 Cultist (0.3 PL)

ThePenitentOne: 

Mike Zulu1 Carnifex (6 PL)

our_baz1 Tyrannofex (9 PL)

Brother Argent1x Tyranid Prime, 6x Genestealers, 30x Hormagaunts, 7x Spore Mines, 1x Carnifex (30 PL)

 
That said, we have some new Hive Fleets on the scene, and we're now up to 15 vowing participants. Not only that, we have some pretty impressive vows in the 6-10 PL region, and not to mention Brother Argent's massive 30PL vow for the month, which will see him jump to the top of the table...if he can complete them in time!
