Tyranid Mycetic Spore Pod

Managed to take some photos of the last model for the Tyranid project - the mycetic spore pod! This is a really nice resin kit from Chapterhouse Studios.

My client wanted a pod, and we looked around at the various third party options available. In my opinion, this is the best pod - it has plenty of detail and is also chunky. As an added bonus, the sculpting style reflects the Secret Weapon hive bases which were used on most of the monstrous creatures, so it meshes well with the rest of the army.

Those tendrils were treated with a healthy dose of water effects, as were the spore chimneys.

The kit is a 4-piece model, with a removable top. As you can see, there's not much going on inside though! The main body is 2 pieces, which I pinned together for stability. The fourth piece, not pictured here, is an "arm" on which a bio-weapon can be mounted according to preference.

Finally managed to acquire another set of flesh devourers for the last Carnifex - only have to paint those and do a couple of touch-ups, then this is another army finished...
