Tyranids: Ripper Swarms, Spores and more

Finally managed to finish this Tyranid project!

It's taken a while longer than I usually take to do a commission, simply because all manner of real work has gotten in the way. I'm grateful for my client for being so understanding!

I showcased some ripper swarm bases a few weeks back, and I've now painted nine of them. They were hard work! So much detail, in a some space, but also very characterful pieces. 

The carapaces were all painted in the same style as the larger Tyranids, which tied everything together nicely.

Because there are only two variations on the basic model, I added speckling to the tail areas on some bases for some variety.

And here's the whole commission altogether, ready to be shipped to the client...

So what's next? I'm just taken on a small commission for another client, involving several Anvil Industry models. These are really nice figures, and I'm pleased to be working on them.
