'nids part 287 - Rippers - TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer Tyranid Rippers. These are my original Rippers, almost a decade old and I was just refreshing them alongside their more recent siblings.

Actually, lets just take a moment to let that sink in, almost a decade since I originally painted them!

Came out alright in the end

At least I can do these without any hitch or crisis of confidence.

That's always a relief I can fall back on something to get me back in the groove. 

As the Free Radical Collective would say "progress is progress".

Top view so you can get a better view of the carapace chitin.

And alongside one of the more recent Rippers. The only noticeable difference being the slightly less saturated bases. 

However, if I keep these three together as a brood that might not be so apparent on the table. Here we go with all ten bases of Rippers.

Great Big GRANITE Stamp of Approval!


  1. Its almost as if they have a neon glow about them, very impressive!!

    1. My son played against a I'd army years ago at Warhammer World that was very much a bioluminescent scheme. Very dark blues with neon Turquoise dots and tiny chitin striations. Far more subtle than our scheme, very much Avatar, with glowing plants and leaves. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture 😔
