Ben Jackson’s Tyranid Hoard Aproaches. This is Ben’s old Tyranid army, the one he’s not happy with. Personally I’d be very happy to game with them; and on occasion he has let me borrow them. There is an irony to that they are both pink and scary.
I’ve been very good at starting models this year, but not so good at finishing them. I’ve decided to show some work in progress photos, hopefully this may inspire me to finish the models, or you to start some. This is a 2nd hand Zoanthope I’ve been repainting. I’ve added my own hive fleet’a blue to the standard colours of hive fleet kraken. Which I’m considering repainting some of my existing Nids as. I’ve added some more red to this model, I’ve also darkened the red with a base if khone red, a wash of null oil and then added layers of wasdakka red. I’ve shaded the skin with sephera and Eathshade. To finish it, I’m going to do a little tiding up and put some more layers of bone on the skin.
The Zoanthope as it arrived.
The problem with the internet is you can write from beyond the grave. Yep this is Ben and while I’m no longer committed to posting to ChapterMasters.com (writing offers welcome), I have a stack of material that I don’t know what to do with, so I’ve set it all to go out at random intervals.
This is the Official GW Red Terror. I have to say I love the paint Job on this thing. I’ve been very unhappy with how my Nids have been looking lately. I’m contemplating repainting my whole army like this. If only the rules for Nids made the effort worth while. (Despaired eye role) But no resentment here for the way GW have moved the goal posts so far that the line is a dot to them. I’m not painting a great deal at the moment which is why I’ve taken a break from writing. However currently I can’t decide between Kracken and what ever hive fleet the Red Terror belonged to.
