'nids part 344 - Tyranid Zoanthrope - TO DONE!

Afternoon #WarHamFam and #WarhammerCommunity I've been #PaintingWarhammer on my #Tyranid Zoanthrope. Getting the Parasite to the same stage meant it was so much easier to do them as a pair.

Obviously you can see I opted for blue psychic powers.

I think I just wanted all three Zoanthropes to exhibit different effects coming from their brain.

I know that's not how they work in game, usually doing the same power.

And 10th will be likely very different with the psychic phase removed [I believe].

But I just thought it'd be cool to have them all doing their own thing.

I think they make a cool little brood, good to finally have 3 so it's a complete set and they're all painted to the same standard.

Also, the fact I lost the 2 of the small back vents for the green one means it looks a little different too.

Not mounting it on the [tiny] Capillary Tower base means it's a little shorter too, almost like it's underdeveloped or younger. 

It adds a little variety to an otherwise identical set of miniatures.

And the different colours helped sell that too. If I do another one I'll have to go Fluoro Magenta

And the white background pics.

Close up of the brain - it wasn't exactly what I was going for, but I think the results were pretty cool.

The green one is clearly working overtime with it's powers leaking down towards its mouth but the scheme, like the biophorms - evolve.

And another GREAT Big RUSTY Stamp of Approval .

  1. I really like the individual effects on the brains. The older I get, the less urge I have to paint everything the same :-)
