Hierophant (alternative model)
Trygon (plus ravenors)
Both Hierodules (alternative Armorcast models)

Perhaps sometime in the future the Harridan (sigh)

Ah, excellent.
*rubs claws together*

I feel as if a new camera will be purchased next weekend so I can take a group shot of my horde.

@tyrant82 Thats a massive list. What are the symbiarch? Broodlords?

tyrant82

Yes i mean broodlords.
Really massiv yes. The transport needs much time, but when the whole army stands on table it makes me happy and smashing in the enemy is the best moment in game:D.

If that's all painted, I'd like to personally invite you to join the Painted Dragon and share the beauty.

19000 are painted. The rest will be painted in the next two months.
Then i make the details on the small modells. Cause it is so much work( and less time) i first make details on the big bugs.
What is the Painted Dragon?

What are the symbiarch? Broodlords?
In German, the Broodlord is sold as the Symbiarch (see blister!) ... and the ravenors are sold as venators.


What is the Painted Dragon?
Are you talking about the big flyer in the OP's pics? It is a Harridan.

Yes i know the Harridan.
With my question about the painted dragon i mean this post .
But perhaps i understand it in wrong way. Sometimes i`m not sure if i understand the complete posts.

Yes, the Hive Fleet is upon us all. Even the link in my signature shows how even us Chaos players are getting in on the act...

And my god do I have a lot to paint.

holy crap these are awesome! I really would like to play against a nid army of those sizes. the only word that comes to mind is 'epic'.
need more flamers to deal with that many nids!

edit: Gareth, could we perhaps have some close up shots of all those carnifexes?

tyrant82

really nice models from the members of painting dragon.
I can`t paint like this people but my painting looks good and is clean and my nids looking very nice on table.
I will get the nikon digicam from a friend this week so i can make good pics, cause my cam isn`t really good.

So this is where the big Hive Fleets hang out! Mad props to everyone with 9000+, though Tyrant82 may have gone just a little overboard. You sure two Heirophants is enough? ;)
Seriously, great paintjobs on everything. I especially like Gareth's titans and Bregalad's terrain pieces, and can't wait to see Angelwing post some pics too.
My Hive is around 9300, and I'm actively trying to finish painting them.
Great work guys!

Have a soft spot for Tyranids, you chaps have done 'em proud.

Damn, so many xenos, so few vortex missiles!

Love your swarm. Funny thing. When I looked at the thumbnails, I thought the Harridan was a winged tyrant and the carnifexes tyranid warriors. :D

These are great! My mate has just ordered the assault swarm (he is getting sick of Eldar) so we will be up all night on the weekend painting Leviathan 'nids. They aren't common around here, so Leviathan looks great, just like the stock Cadian scheme. Not many people use it, so when someone does it looks pretty spesh. But, I digress! Keep up the good work.

Quality thread, its good to see other large Nid forces out there, heres my 12,000 force, still working on some of the bases still!
I will be using them all in an Apoc battle later this month, and im looking forward to it for sure.

Abosulutely amazing painting Gareth, I'm quite curious how you based your Harridan as I've just ordered one and was thinking of doing something similiar
