'nids part 278 - Rippers - TO DONE! White pics

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer on the Rippers and here we have the white pics.

Not entirely sure what else to say about these, but it's been really good to get them complete.

It's great to have this extra variety of models, things I'm familiar with that I can just dip into inbetween the challenges.

Which means I also need to consider what happens once these items get done.

I really need to go on a bit of a building spree again. Get some additional things built and primed.

It could well be that come the Winter I have significantly more hobby time available to me and it would make a lot of sense to get stuff ready and take advantage of the good weather I have to get them primed.

So, I might build up my spare Tyrannofex, the 3 attack bikes and perhaps my MkI Proteus Land Raider and my old skool Whirlwind.

Having them ready alongside all the other things I on my list should keep me busy for a good while.

Then again I've 15 terminators to build, a load of Genestealer Cultists and some Adeptus Mechanicus as well, but I'm not really feeling all that building work right now.

We'll just have to see how things go and what takes my fancy.

Actually, coming back to the Rippers it's worth noting that I got a bit random on the turquoise, some of the plates might have 3 striations on one side and 2 on the other.

Still not 100% certain some of those gloss varnish elements on the eyes work. They bled a bit into the surrounding area so there are inexplicable reflections/highlights.

But I can't help myself, I just have to add them.

Anyway, enjoy the est of the shout uninterrupted until the end, where I have another comparison with my earliest of painted Tyranids. 

Here we go, the latest alongside the oldest. Looks like I can go back over some of those old ones and bring them up to standard. Shouldn't take too much but it's not a particularly satisfying feeling to go back so it's difficult to factor this into my workstream when I've so many other things to do.

Not to worry, I'll get to them eventually. In the mean time hope you've enjoyed the showcase.

    1. Thank you, I may end up tackling my pile of nids more than I intended if the Land Raider continues to prove challenging.
