These are WIP. I have a tourney on 12/13th March that these must be completed for.
That is quite the force! Looking good!
It's a bug hunt O.O
They look real menacing!
Very nice Brad
Very nice work I was thinking of getting into 40k and I do like how this race is very Alien like...if only they had a Predator race...
These look incredible!
new pic didn't work
Yeah, all those Tyranids look really good. When you get a good sized warm like that out on the table it looks really nifty. Tyranids are one of those 40k armies that I've always wanted to at least collect a little bit and pain em up - they look super fun to paint - them and Orks. I just never can make myself pull the trigger on any of them. 40k just hasn't ever grabbed me by the throat like WHFB did.
I'm enjoying 40k more than fantasy to be truthful. It's far less complicated and there's less rules qualms, I love scifi as well.
Be wary that if you start tyranids then you have many, many, many models to paint.
If you like painting single models then tyranids isn't for you hahaha
Open for names of the Hive Fleet
Those look incredible! Bet the opponent is terrified even looking at that fleet! *not much help with the fleet name, but seriously they look amazing!
That is a mighty fine Nid army!!! They look quite formidable, especially in that picture displaying the whole force. What colours did you use on the caraspaces/shell?
1. Baneblade Brown - Base coat
2. Ushabti Bone - lines toward edges
3. Agrax Earthshade - fairly liberal application
4. Ushabti Bone - smaller highlight lines toward edges
Cool looking swarm you got there. How about something like Hive fleet Apoptosis as in programmed cell death, or hive fleet Apophis like the Egyptian God / Goa'uld from Stargate?
nicely done, love the extra details on some of the bases.
That's a fair amount of models Brad!
Wonderful tyrannids! I still have my small warband of tyrannids lying around since the Battle for Maccrage came out that I never painted... maybe someday!
As for names: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Tyranid_Hive_Fleet_Creation_Tables
Well that one was mostly just a quick lore creation table, but you can always go with some legendary creature name. When in doubt, Wikipedia! They have a list of legendary creatures by letter, just pick your favorite letter and the most scary-sounding name on the list!
I'm thinking it should be a legendary sea creature, but the problem is that most of the legendary creature names have already been taken!
