    Re: BoBo´s tyranid swarm

    Easily the quickest 5-rating as I'm astonished by the colour sheme, the conversions which look really, really superb, the malantrope etc., if I hadn't read the text under the pics I would have taken it as the FW one.
    Wonderful army, wonderful bases. Contrast is really awesome and the look like mad and evil aliens.
    Only "down" would be the markers I think..do some with that great jungle environment you use, would be much much better. The markers seem to..simple considering and seeing your whole army.

    Armies and pictures like that are temping me to do nids again, oh well.

    As said, high 5!

    AMAZING! Can't believe I haven't seen these before! Your Tervigon has to be one of the best and most orgional I've seen, also the hive guard and Harpy just wow.

    Well done, please paint more and do tutorials on your Harpy/Hive Guard and most important your Tervigon! (big ask I know but can't blame a guy for tryin )

    polo.

    p.s didn't mention your Lictors, fantastically posed.

    ok I'm done now, promise.

    Awesome + Sauce = Awesomesuace

    Great work. If I may pick your mind for a tip. How could I learn your armour painting ways and what would you recommend as an upper layer to Iyaden Darksun armour?

    Thanks

    When I first looked I didn't even realize the Malanthrope was scratch-built.

    Awesome!

    Re: BoBo´s tyranid swarm

    Thanxs for all the wonderful comments

    @Nocturn: The markers are a quick fix a did to a lokal turnament! Even if the are a bit boring compered to what some peaple do a must say that the are exelent to play with since you can actually stand a modell on top of it!
    @polomarko888: I´m not doing another tervigon at the moment but i have som wip pictures somewere so stay tuned and i will post as soon as i find them!
    @ASSASSINAWOKEN: I have been painting miniatures for more than 20 years and all a can say is practice practice....there is no quick fix. It depends on the look your going for Iliaden darksun highlights well with tausept ochre and if you want to go brighter there is always sunburst yellow.
    @Speedfreak! Tack

    Good stuff, really liking the face on your Malanthrope, and I love the retro looking objective markers.

    All in all a great looking swarm with some wonderful conversions, you should be proud

    By far the BEST paint job, conversion work and presentation in an army I have EVER seen.You should put those in the armies on parade competition.

    Unbelievably good army. Inspiring conversions. The use of the carnifex is sublime. Will be linking this to my nid playing buddy. Hive guard conversions are my faves.
