Painting more bugs for the endless swarm is always a good thing. Can’t stop until you can carpet the table!

Nice color exercise on the horrors. Things like accent colors and bases will help them look like a unit once you do that last step. And frankly, tzeench demons should look like a chaotic riot anyway.

Back again after some slight bug burn out and trying to figure out what to do when I finally run out of Rhinox Hide spray.
Still have about 1.25 cans left and grabbed a can of krylon camouflage brown to test out to see if it's close enough. I'd rather figure it out before I run out completely.

Got another 7 stealers done (the 8th felt a bit flimsy on its base so its set aside since I was going to end up with 4 spares anyway)



Also in the middle of working on a Hive Tyrant.

Used spare spikes and mandibles from the trygon to make fingers for what used to be boneswords to make them into rending claws. I was originally going to put wings on this guy, but I kind of like the idea of a hive tyrant walking up surrounded by the little bugs as well. Also cut down the tendril that goes into the venom cannon which was all it needed to be able to repose it so it looks like he's aiming it.

Also spent about 250 from my tax refund to grab some more bugs to work on: a final box of genestealers, 2 more boxes of termagants, and a tervigon to lead them. I've seen people mixed on the tervigon but I figure if I'm going to run 60 termagants it'll probably be pretty fun to bring along too.




EDIT: Testing the spray out on a board today, still drying at the moment but it looks like its a pretty close match to rhinox hide so far.

Bugs!

<Pulls out the flamer to purge the thread>

Nice to see you still at it. Tyrant is looking cool, If you didn’t tell me what parts you had modded, I would not have known, which is the mark of a seamless job!

I can’t really speak to what works for ‘nids on the table these days. But painting what you like is always a decent plan. Rules come and go, but cool models are forever.

Thanks

Yeh, I don't get the appeal of trying to chase power either. Takes me so long that by the time everything was done it wouldn't even be the best anymore anyway.

Hive Tyrant is done. Wasn't sure of the eyes for a while, and was on the fence between glowing or just the same as the other bugs but figured they could glow for the psykers/synapse then; although if I do something like zoans or a neuro I'm going to need to make it glow more I think.

So back to working on models after a bit of a break, managed to finally get in a couple of games with the tyranids which was nice. One against orks and another against custodes.


Also got the urge to work on some Tau again for a bit. It's still more Xenos.

Only magnetised these cyclic ion blasters, but in the past when I've had weapon options I've always just glued the guns on so they're at least being left open for the future at the moment in case I want to run them differently.

Crisis suits always struck me as a unit that could do with magnets. Lots of roles, lots of options.

Should be fun to paint.

And good on getting some games in!

Found a use for some leftover scions I had laying around.


Got some mould lines to clean up.











Been thinking on giving it a try for a few weeks, then finally got to it today. Originally I wanted to put pulse rifles on the scions arms but I didn't like how it looked so decided to just go with firewarrior arms. Means I need to wait for the left arms to show up cause I only ordered ones with pulse rifles before.
Also figured the breacher helmet was a better idea cause I'd have a ton laying around and they're a little bulkier than the strike team ones.

Painted up mollog and friends. they've sat around in bare purple plastic for too long.
Also tried out contrast paints a bit, not so sure of them.

Just finished these. Planning on doing 3 more rockguts and going for the troggherd battalion eventually, but don't have any more models for it yet.


I like how they turned out, the rocks as well since those were basically painted the same as the rest but a mix of nuln oil and contrast basilicanum grey. Don't know the exact mix but was more like loading up the brush with nuln then a light dab of the contrast added in. Not sure if I'd do more in red or go with another colour like some sort of orange.

Love those Troggoths, the red really makes them stand out.

Liking the tyranids as well, glad you were able to find a replacement spray!

Thanks,

The red of the Troggoths is really nice, makes them look more aggressive then their blue brethren you see with the official scheme. Especially love the color shift on the more stony parts of their skin!
What would round the models off for me would be a some contrast on the fingernails, something in the direction of Ushbati Bone or such like.
