wow!

best tyranid army I've seen Borka, love the colour scheme, the conversions and the basing, the painting really makes them all pop out so well.... painting the eyes!! madness!! plus the water looks great as it is mate!

this is going to be spectacular on the tabletop when it's all complete, you should definitely enter it in epicomp this year :)

really really great work, one of the best armies I've seen in a long time :D

I'm honored, thanks man! :)

I might just do that. I was going to put my Dark Eldar up in last years competition but just totally forgot at the time of the deadline. :{[]

Hi! Not an update I'm affraid, but rather a question. I want to check wether one of you english gentlemen could help me out. Two colors have become very important to my painting style. Graveyard earth and kommando khaki. I'm about to run out of my last botten of kommando khaki before this army will be finished.

I found the color on amazon here. They will not ship to Sweden however. This is were I'd like to ask for help, could I order them to the adress of one you and then you send the bottles to me (I would of course pay for shipping)? IT would be much appreciated!

Please send a pm if you can help.

-Erik

Vallejo Game Colour is a straight translation of the old Citadel range. If I recall correctly, Khaki and Earth are the colours you are looking for. There are variations between batches, so you might want to buy all the colour you need in one go.

That's very nice of you. I have now bought three bottles on amazon though, so keep it if you need it. :)

cheers

Hi again!

I have been painting I promise. Just haven't had the time to do updates. Anyways this will be the last update I'll do before the tournament on saturday. I have finished two more swarms. First out is my Nexus swarm.

It just two units. Big mama and a termagant unit.

I did two minor conversions on the dominatrix. I find the "wings" on the back of it look utterly ridiculous, so they had to go. The second thing I did was exchange the head. The original is to small for my taste and looks a bit silly. I also contemplated exchanging the two front arms for 40k hormagaunt arms to unify the look more with the hierodule, but there just wasn't enough time.

I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable Epic minis to paint that I've done in quite a while. I'm rather pleased with the result so I hope you guys like her as well.

I have also managed to finish enough units to represent another small swarm. Here they are. 2 x Warriors and 6 x termagants.

Image

Last but not least, I've also done two Hive Tyrants. Fantastic models. Such great detail.

Image
Image

And for those interested here's the list I'm bringing to the tournament on saturday.

Code:
NEXUS SWARM [370]
1 Dominatrix, Termagants

TYRANID SWARM (S) [450]
Hive Tyrant, 4 Termagants, 2 Hormagants, Tyranid Warriors, 3 Carnifex, 2 Zoanthrope (745.M41)

TYRANID SWARM (S) [325]
Hive Tyrant, 4 Termagants, 2 Hormagants, 2 Carnifex, Zoanthrope (745.M41)

TYRANID SWARM (S) [355]
Two Tyranid Warriors, 4 Termagants, 2 Hormagants, Tyranid Warriors, 3 Raveners

TYRANID SWARM (S) [200]
Two Tyranid Warriors, 4 Termagants, 2 Hormagants

TYRANID SWARM (S) [200]
Two Tyranid Warriors, 4 Termagants, 2 Hormagants

HIERODULE BIO-TITAN (745.M41) [350]

TRYGON SWARM [225]
3 Trygon

LICTOR SWARM [200]
4 Lictor

BIOVORE SWARM (S) [175]
6 Biovore

GENESTEALER SWARM [150]
6 Genestealers


It's pretty straight forward. Most thing march turn one. The rest just tries to spread out blast markers which the opponent hopefully can't rally/remove completely before the start of turn two. The off board stuff tunnels and teleports on start of turn 2 and then I hope enough stuff survives the opponents first 2 activations so that I can do some decisive damage.

cheers

Mate,

They are awesome, simply stunning work you have done there. I love the bases, really make the army come together. If you haven't already could you list the products you used on the bases and a technique for making them.

Cheers
Aaron
