Gotta love those movie conversations

Brilliant cover

Great new track.

Gaunt's Ghosts diorama part 1

I've had these models quite a while, but I only got around painting them this year and thought..well why not make it into a diorama. For those who don't know, they are modelled after the characters in the Gaunt's Ghost series

The problem of course is that in the storyline, some of them die or 'disappear' and this scene where áll of these specific Ghosts fighting Blood pact cultists lead by a Khorne Berserker on Gerion...never happened. I say to hell with that. So here's a start. The Ghosts need some final highlighting and the cultists are work in progress. Also, the base of the diorama needs 'some' work ;) There is also going to be a Wirewolf on a gibbet and a Sigil to finish it off.

So, very much work in progress:

Tyranids: Trygon marker

I found out I didn't take any photo's of this one yet.
You may (or may not) remember this post: Trygon

The photo's below are of the marker base for the Trygon after it deepstrikes and the sign it crushed is being replaced. It's an éxact copy of the base for the Trygon (incl. the location of the ruin and the sign). It's a 'Move along people, nothing to see here'-kinda situation where the Imperial Guard just swept some remains of the victims under a cloth and put up a brand new sign. Citizens beware, contact with aliens is a crime punishable by summary execution. Just so you've seen nothing!

Citizens beware!

A fresh paint on the sign, and it's done :)
The base could be improved somewhat by a thicker cover of mud...

Tyranids: Biovore 5th edition

I like the 3rd edition model better and I don't even have the other ones in between...
also, this is still a metal kit instead of the current resin version which is more expensive than it's weight in gold I think...

5th edition Biovore
It still needs to be based and varnished, but that's just a formality.

Tyranids: Broodlord brothers

Broodlords. They're kinda shelved at the moment, but I'm sure they'll get some field time in the future if I feel like it or the rules improve.

Tyranids: Tervigon number 1

I've been slow in building this since I wanted it to be painted better than the models I've had so far and wasn't sure how to do that. Finally sat down with a friend and I'm really happy how it turned out. The base was made from torn up cork board.

There are 2 problems still.
1) The 2nd set of legs/arms (counting from the front) didn't need to be magnetized..but I already glued the magnets in the torso..couldn't get them I decided to glue those arms directly to the magnets. A bit stupid..but can't be helped and you barely notice.

2) The angle of the crushing claws and the left (for the viewer) fleshborerhive should be a bit more outward similar to the right fleshborerhive. Thís I can improve fairly easy by breaking off the magnet and glueing it in place in a different angle, I already did that with the right arm and I'm glad I did. Will change it in the coming month or so. Until then, well it's tabletop ready.

As always, click on the image for a bigger view, click again to enlarge (on photo in new screen).

Tervigon number 1 (#2 is already in progress)!

The photo shows a minor imperfection...looks like I forgot to wash (kind of paint)

Here you can see how the left arm has a better position, the other is to close to the head.

No front-arms or head.
Btw the big fleshy womb is also removable so I can make the Tyrannofex.
The weapons for that one are still work in progress.
