Your amassed forces look great!
Impressive army, they are all looking great together! Glad you added the names for what everything is to, I will need to remember that trick.
Also that is an epic looking Ethereal!
Time for an update of what's been happening
Got that WG Exclusive's Ethereal the other week. Very cool model but it was a mess to paint due to being resin, the gray/black got a bit tough to use so I tried something new and tested my purple paint which I haven't used before. Turned out pretty nice to be honest. Some parts of the model were really thin and easy to break.. https://wargameexclusive.com/shop/greater-good/greater-good-aether/
At the same time I got this model, "Tech Monk" from Kulkva Miniatures. (Totally not Zenyatta from Overwatch..) Pretty small model but good details, I love it. Was thinking of using it as a proxy for an Ethereal maybe. It was fun to paint and the bits were very well made! http://klukvaminiatures.com/
And here are my setup for my Imperial Guard army. Some guardsmen are unfinished otherwise the rest is set and ready. One of my Chimeras I converted to a Salamander Scout Tank. While my second Chimera is a regular one with two towers I can swap between. Bolter or Multi-laser. Since the setting is on a mining world I wanted to give the men and tanks the theme with extra protection and support etc.All my Ogryns are carrying their large shields and I got a guardsmen squad that also carry blast shields. http://anvilindustry.co.uk/Assault-Shield?search=shield Might buy one of those mining trucks from the Genestealer cult to convert for these men.
Lately, got my hands on a Hive Tyrant. My first Tyranid model, was unsure what color scheme to go with.. I didn't want to go with the standard red or white skin since my lizardmen are red and my white paint is a pain to paint with. So went with the purple I was so pleasant surprised with, turned out great! A good start on my Tyranid army.
The brown and purple paint scheme looks cool, very Zerg.
Really liking your work. That Ethereal looks awesome, a great general model to add to your force.
As always you output is impressive, so many imperial guardsmen!
Agreed, a friend of mine gave his tyrannids a similar color scheme. They look great as a group. I think the only think differently he did was color the "orange" carapace bits with a bronzed-metallic paint to give them extra shine.
