Tyranid Warriors

My brother no longer plays 40K, so I have adopted his Tyranids, promising to give them victories and glory (or whatever the beasts crave). Anyhow, some of the Warriors were not completely painted, so I have taken upon me the arduous task of finishing the army. This constitutes mostly of finishing five Warrior's armour plates, as I have painted their skin and claws earlier.

I have tried to match the armour design as closely as I can, but it is clear to me that there will be some differences. The one on the left is painted by me, the one on the right by my brother.

The army itselft sports 21 Tyranid Warriors, not a very common unit type in most Tyranid forces. I expect some turned heads and very few opponents with experience in handling 42 wounds of Warriors, now immune to insta-killing and with a horrendous amount of Rending attacks. >:]

Eldar Revenant Titans

A few weeks ago I won an auction on eBay for an Eldar Revenant Titan produced by Armorcast. After winning, the seller contacted me and asked if I would like two Titans for twice the price. A few hundred dollars later I am now the happy owner of two Eldar Revenant Scout Titans.

Eversor assassin

I have finally finished the Eversor assassin for my upcoming Witch Hunters Army. Because of work it has taken me about two weeks from start to finish, and unfortunately, this is reflected in the paint job. Still, this is a gaming piece, and as I hope to actually field this army at 1500 points, I cannot let a single miniature's paint job take forever.

This Officio Assassinorum Operative is painted with the technique "extreme highlighting", which I clearly do not yet master. Practice makes perfect, I presume, but at a distance he looks quite nice. It is only up close that the imperfections becomes apparent.

For the army, the next project is boosting the number of Battle Sisters. I have only six of them painted at the moment, with three more on the way. As this army is going to be a rag-tag band of lots of different troop types, I thankfully won't be tired of painting lots of sisters, as i plan on having no more than two dozen of them, including the Canoness.
