Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer and as DreadTober came to an end my Tyrannofex appears to slipped into both #NidVember and #NomVember!
I made the hard slog to re-varnish where I could and fix any damage from the previous fiasco.
All three weapon options got painted to enjoy pics for all sets. But I think the Rupture Cannon is by far my favourite.
I'm glad I went with the lime green [thanks for the advice] it really stands out and draws the eye up.
Which I think if I'd gone a red glow would have left it a little more flat.
I love the Adrenal Glands, they work so well but you can definitely see that the red/yellow isn't quite as striking as the green.
A close-up of the Rupture Cannon.
And some 'desktop patterns'.
Fleshborer Hives. OK, they are widely regarded as the least useful weapon.
My mate Otty loves them though. It was the 18" range and 30 shots at S5 that he loved. Doesn't the scorch bugs stratagem give them D2 as well?
Can't say I'm convinced but it's always handy to have them for Devourer's with Brainleech worms.
If I get my other Hive Tyrant or more Carnifex then they will come into their own.
And the Acid Spray.
and right again!
Alongside the Tervigon I have with its extended Acid Spray so I can also use it as a Tfex. They make a nice pair, subtly different with the colouration of the red fleshy bits. Vermillion on the Tfex, Khorne Red/maroon on the Tervigon.
Can't wait to see all my big bugs on the table together. As I finish of some of these 'nids I plan to take a full army pic at some point. I think I missed the good light of the summer, maybe next year. In which case I need to finish my Void Shield Generator for it! White pics on Friday
And so I gets me my Great Big Granite Stamp of Approval - TO DONE!'
Looks fantastic mate, well done!ReplyDelete
Cheers Ed, glad you like it. Genuinely think it's one of GWs best 'miniatures'. It definitely doesn't get the recognition it deserves. Such a beast and you can pick em up for £25 or less. When ever someone asks Exocrine, Hive Guard or Tfex I'm always the one pointing out they cost 2/3 or 1/2 of an Exocrine and are actually available in shops and even ebay! Sure the Exocrine is better rules wise, but we all know everyone buying an Exocrine would build it as a Haruspex instead, if their rules were comparable! 😝Delete
Great work! Congrats on the results. The green does work well.ReplyDelete
I think it was my first Tervigon where I introduced the green on the tongue. The wishy washy Valejo Dark Green really helped sell it. And, after 10 years that green just ran out, so I'll need to replace it and hope it still has that weird properties (I'm guessing almost like contrast paint) when not shaken.Delete
Fantastic work as usual! A great addition to Dreadtober.ReplyDelete
Thanks Mike, it almost possible for me to overlook I missed the deadline. It helps that Marc isn't going to come round and remove my participation badge (once I add it to the blog). Fact is it's too far for him to travel! 😜Delete
