Thanks for the comment Nitpick, indeed I hadn't enjoyed painting this much for good long time.

The progress for this week: One more Termagant Swarm.

The tide rushes forward!

Next up, final Termagant Swarm.

Cheers!

Great work. I think the hexagonal bases look great for Tyranids. They remind me of the old Tyranid cards.

I think it's the honeycomb/insectoid thing, as well as the fact that it's different and more organic looking than other bases which makes it so effective!

if I ever get round to doing a nid army, I'm totally sold on the hex bases for them!

Thanks! That is where I go the idea from. I'm very pleased with the result.

Yes, that's also what I feel. And when I put all the bases touching one another, the end result is more of a jumbled mess than a neat block.

Anyways, here is the progress for this week. Last synapse swarm finished (at least until I can get more gaunts). That Totals 7 Swarms in 24 days. Longest period of time I've painted straight, and still motivated. Thanks for the helpful comments people!

All close together for a cool effect.

Next up, 9 Lictors.

Cheers!

Those swarm pics are fantastic! I hope you do a battle report once you are finished painting your army!

Thanks. I'm really enjoying painting this army.

Battle report, (Tyranids vs Ultras) most likely!
Lictors Done! Yay!

Crap pic alert!

Next up, 16 Genestealers.

Cheers!

Great tempo in this thread considering the quality paint job! It is going to be a very nice army- er... swarm, I mean!

The more stands there are the better the hex-base effect!
Maybe hex is the new black! *or something like that :)

Fantastic army!
