'nids part 59 / Terrain is everything - Tyranid Quad Gun pt6.

On goes the Turquoise. For some reason this was quite tedious. Having lumped this in with the defence line which was hard work every time I came to paint this I did it in bits. 

The head, the muzzle, two base Chitinous plates, the plates on the side of the gun.

It took quite a while. I also thinned some Mechrite Red and added it in places.

And I did the base with my usual Red Planet Basing formula but additionally painted the Adrenal Glands looking for a symbiote. See what I mean about the problem with red ones blending in. they'll look better on the back of a beasty but hopefully they're just noticeable enough.

And this is the view I want your flyer to have just before it ploughs into the ground thanks to its four shots :)

Next set of highlights to come but before that the same set on the defence line, keep watching!


  1. wow that is looking really good all ready It should be breath taking when completed.

    1. Cheers, although the next highlight is less striking than this step so expectations may need to be checked :)
