It's taken a few months, but I've finally finished the Tyranid commission. There have bee a few projects running alongside the 'Nids, but this has been my main painting focus since January.
It was a lot of fun to build and paint, although I'm quite sure I never want to glue another gant together again! It highlights a competitive but also fun army to play, relying on lots of monstrous creatures but also many gants. Those tervigons are capable of laying down a literal carpet of critters, hopefully enough to tie up enemy infantry whilst the bigger beasts move on key targets...
Weighing it at 2000 points, the army includes 8 monstrous creatures (9 if you include the Mycetic Spore).
The highlight for me was probably the Flyrant, but the Tervigons were also an interesting painting challenge. I would finally recommend the Secret Weapon bases - they also tie in well with the spore pod from Chapterhouse Studios.
Now, on to my next project - a small Tau army!
