Fredmans i really love this army, I've been watching this thread since you started it and man it's fantastic. I look at the chitin and am amazed, is it drybrushed? or do you do all that raised work each one at a time? Btw the basing is top notch!

Fantastic! These have a lot of work and effort put into them. Amazing end result!

I'll be sure to borrow some ideas from your little guys.

Cheers and thanks for sharing!

A little Christmas present from Fredmans. With these finished, I am five models short of a complete Onachus army. I was lucky to obtain these models at a time when they were obtainable. Do not ask or PM.

First three:

Fantastic paint job but you know it!

It's darn unfair that so many nice figures had to be pulled out of our reach.. :(

nice job! I like the moist, shiny look they have, like true mucus covered xenomorphs! :)

Thanks for the kind comments! They are much appreciated.

I used to blame the flash, and although it is part of the explanation, I think the many layers of paint helps a bit, too.

Anyway, before I leave for the sun for a fortnight, I took some pictures of my Trygon project. I usually do take pictures to "discover" the look of conversions before I paint them. The Onachus list fields Trygons in threes as a tunnelling formation, so I decided to build tunnellers. As with my first Trygon, I did head swaps, using 40K Rippers. Then I added an arm section to each talon to give them some wielding capacity. I sawed the body in half and re-built it into a worm-like shape using a lot of greenstuff. Finally, I added chimney vents to the back. I noticed that the new 40K Trygons have rather low ones, probably to not be an hindrance during all that tunnelling, so I opted for smaller ones than the ones I started out with, but not so small that they would not stand out (a visual compromise).

Finished Trygon:

Two more angles:

WIP of a different head variant (that could be used to show synapse in other Tyranid lists):

And a WIP Mawloc (open wide mouth, shorter talons):

As always, thanks for watching and a Happy New Year!

Thanks, sorry about the bad photos. My wife has changed objective to one without zoom and I cannot find the old one. Portraits and "objects" like clothes and shoes look great, 6mm figures on the other hand are a bugger to get the right focus on.
