Second Tervigon finished

The Tyranid project continues! I've just finished the second Tervigon for this army, and here are the results...


The second Tervigon has an urban hive base from Secret Weapon miniatures. To ensure some differentiation between the Tervigons (which is actually tough as there is little opportunity for posing them), I made the middle leg parts slightly raised on this model. She is supposed to be in an attack pose, but that didn't really work out - even so, she looks different enough to the first one.

Here's a "nice" shot of the birthing gant - that's gotta hurt....


 ... and another close up, showing the glossy/water effects I mentioned in my post on the first Tervigon...


Here are a few shots of the beast from different ages - moving the middle leg bits slightly back allows more of the birthing sac to be revealed. I particularly like the detail on the sac - using drybrushing and washing, you can really bring this out...




Lastly, the poisonous spines on the Tervigon's back. These are black, sealed with gloss - in real life, they look very menacing, and the gloss sets them apart from the rest of the carapace.


This is a great kit. I usually get bored painting multiples, especially on larger kits, but bizarrely I'm not really tired of painting these. I have one more to do - which will be King Tervikong (get it!?!) - and I'm even thinking of buying a couple for my own Tyranid army... Maybe I'll await the alleged up-date to the Tyranids before I do that....
