Finally graduating from college (Art Education major) has given me some time to paint some Tyranids. I liked the color scheme of Molochs and he was generous enough to post the colors he used. Thank you Moloch. Seeing Auxellion's Hive Fleet Orion sealed the color scheme for me. Thanks Auxellion, great you tube videos also.
First miniatures I have ever painted but as a traditional artist fallen-sun-asylum on deviantART I was able to apply a few of the techniques, along with some bad habits, of paint and brush that I use with canvas and board.
I have not settled on how I would like the carapace and base so as of now they are mostly unfinished. I want to do something with the carapace just don't know if it should be the classic, stripey thing or molted? or who knows. And first time basing, will probably try for a more darker red to contrast the green. bleh...
The brood lord was difficult getting the old head off. Spent entirely too long filing, drilling, screaming and pliering out the head. First attempt at basing these, still need to paint the marine helmet at the broodlords feet, probably do an Imperial Fist cause I like the sons of Dorn.
So here is a single Zoanthrope I painted last weekend. Unfinished carapace and base again. And probably not the soundest tactical decision to raise him up on the base for any grunt to take a shot at but Meh, I thought it looked cooler. Don't enjoy the game for the rules but for the setting.
I finished a Carnifex a few nights ago and actually tried doing a carapace and base on it. Do not know if I am happy with it but wont know until I try a bunch of different things. My hats off to those that paint straight stripes on the back, damn that is difficult to look good. Tried it here and decided to paint back over it with a shell kind of look.
That's all the bugs I have painted so far, probably try a lictor next.
Thanks for looking...
wow, I am speechless. That is amazing! You have to post that in the painting forums.

Thats outstanding. They look so real.
Well done, that must of take alot of time and effort.
I AM BOOMER!
Yup they look really cool. Love the carapace on the Carnifex, definitely think you should go with that effect on the rest of them as well!
Wow, these are some nice nids. The colours are really well chosen, the dark green carapace is at odds to the pale flesh. I like it. As for markings on the carapace, have a look at poisonous frogs and the like and see if you can find anything you like.
i love the zoans head! you use lots of colors and highlights it looks nasty and beautiful! and i wouldnt stop what you were doing with your fexes carapace it's very very unique! if you ask me it's as appealing to look at as a carapace with straight marks on it. awesome job imho
Nice work man, those look cool. I was just telling my friend all the 'nids I see look the same, but you proved me wrong. Looking forward to your lictor.
