EDIT: Can anyone help me scale or hide/show the pictures? They're huge..


5 weeks until Bladestorm and my Tyranid army had been started last week.
Got my fingers crossed and my paintbrush ready.....

We'll start with some crap photo of the base coat stage and do some periodic updates.

To get the idea of the colour scheme here's a WIP Timmy the Tyrant (name pending)

And lastly, the semi-translucent/veins effect on Tyrant wing membrane

Thanks for that. I plan on doing something similar (though less time consuming) for the gargoyles

Couple of minor updates. No full milestones reached yet, but most bases have been painted and washed, and armour plating has begun.

All main base colours down, so highlighted with bone and dropped the argrax earthshade down.
