More Nids

Mouth isn't glued

So picked this up Thursday, and knocked him out last night.  Thankfully he was already put together, as that saved alot of time.  I primed him Thursday night, and painted him last night, dip was brushed on at 12am or so.  I also finished five Genestealers, no pictures yet.

this thing is huge
I should have put a model in the picture to give a representation of size.  Below you can see I did add some highlights to the claws.
little highlights
Nice drybrush (sorta wet, light overbrush) really added some nice details.
Seymor, Feed Me!
So for painted Tyranids I have:


I've painted some Orks in between, and need to pick up the pace a bit.  Today I'll pick up 500pts of Chaos, that need alot of work (see summary).  Not sure how I will tackle these already painted figs, I don't have the time to strip them, so I will have to do some touch up work.  All the Chaos bases need to be scraped and redone as well.

I'm shooting to do a summary of progress post on Sunday for each Army.

(EDIT:  I picked up my Orks last night for inventory, unfortunately it appears I will have to strip a majority of these models.  So will take 'styx' advice, and use the tire cleaner he recommended.

Chaos models were surprisingly good, and will only require touch-ups.)


  1. Dude! Dude! That's awesome i like the colors also the blue blends great with the washed bone. Now i'll be honest and say the only Dex i don't have is BT.....cause the book is ancient. I wish i had one now though but anyway ATSKNF is great now with reg. movement plus 3 inches and i think it will help BT.

  2. Nids are looking sweet! I like the blue/black on the bone, they compliment well.

  3. Thanks! Wish I could take the credit, but the dip does all the work. I just have to keep a steady hand for big stuff, and drybrush :-)

    FAQ really helped BT's but they're still pricey pts wise, I have alot of them too. I really need to gather up all my armies (and partial armies) and take some pics.
