@irisado: I wholeheartedly agree with you, and it was originally not in my lists. However, it was in the wraithhost box and I figured I should paint it anyhow... I'm glad I made you like it.  :) Or should I be sorry?

@grizzly: Yes, I hoped that I could get each pose to work with all the options. I'm glad you think I managed to do that. What's next: probably another wraithguard unit and their accompanying wave serpent. However, since I'll have central heating installed soon and I need create a clear working space for the people who will be installing it, it's not really the best time to start a new project. Soon, though, soon!

@Cavalier: Sorry... :( please forgive me!

You can just be glad :).  Given that I no longer play the game, you're not influencing me to part with money :D.

That has got to be the prettiest Tyranid I have ever seen. Am I right in thinking that once the model is finished it will look a bit darker than it does at the moment?

Hehe, I really need to get a good 'diorama' going with both armies facing off against eachother. And then get some really good photographs of it...
@alienscar: I think the model looks a bit brighter than usual because of the picture quality and the fact that I haven't done the base yet and the model contrasts brightly against the black base. The army as a whole looks pretty dark when I look at it, especially in comparison with my Iyanden.

Mind blowing effort going on here.

The yellow is so soft and I really like it. Really defines the soft curves the Eldar are known for.

Perverted one spotted here !

On an other topic i was wondering what brought you to paint you tyranide that way? What made it that you went for such violent color theme, because to me it look violent. I mean, dark blue and dust brown, it sure speak power to me.
It really contrast with the slender and etheraiml use yku make of blue and yellow for your eldar army.

ok, old school stuff coming here.
When I was younger, I had this game. That game was:

As you can see, there's a genestealer over there

Years later, I started my tyranid collection. Mind you, this was still in the later stages of tyranids looking like a collection of bright candy on the tabletop. But I really, really liked that 2nd edition hive tyrant model, and I bought it, and it was the start of an obsession I still have to this day.

I decided to paint it up like the box art for space crusade - however, with only very limited paint and limited funds available, I had to make do. Hence the purple being a LOT darker than on the box art (for those who still now it, I started using imperial purple), and the claws a lot brighter. By the time paints were taken out of production I decided to try and keep teh same colors anyway, because I didn't feel capable of painting things again without messing up. And by the time I did feel like I might have that skill, I no longer felt the need to as the army already was so big by then...

So there you have it.

a friend of mine commented that the 4 options for type of tyranid paint shown in the 3rd ed codex were all in my painting scheme: natural colors, bright colors, dark colors, contrasting colors. And I still like it :)

Space Crusade! Damn I never got a chance to play this game but the models are freaking awesome! The Eldar minis are so damn cool! I actually have a Dark Angels Dreadnought from this game and I'm waiting to get some bits to convert to a more modern looking unit.

So excited you're gonna add some bugs to your collection Vonny. Having your main army's rivals in your collection is so thematic. I've got a tiny little Chaos collection meant for the same thing but I just never seem to devote any money towards expanding it. Anyway can't wait to see where this leads, keep us posted!

adding tyranids to my collection...

well, I've already got around 3k of tyranids, Cav :)

They're more my main army and the main reason I really wanted an Iyanden force of eldar.

I still have Space Crusade at my parent's house, and it was great fun to play.  I also still have a pot of Imperial Purple paint.  It's great to read about how the box art inspired you :).

on request: most of my recently finished victims/predators of craftworld Iyanden.

some rippers


and some termagants. Not painted in this sitting, but they were still on bare black bases. Since I did base them this time, I included them here


Some spore mines, big and small. The big ones are meiotic spores, but they will be used as mucolid spores.


and my very first venomthrope. One more (at least) to follow at a later date


And a converted hive guard. As I don't like tyranids walking around with weapons in their hands I try to convert most of them to be different (except for the termagants, so far)


not shown are my tyrant guard, as one of them has half a dead space marine on the base and I was still working on painting his blood all over the place at the time these pictures were taken.

edit: I forgot to mention I tried making a good picture of my whole Tyranid army in the display cabinet, but that kinda failed badly. Couldn't get any sharp pictures...

Hot damn! I absolutley love them Vonny. Is the color scheme accurate to Hive Fleet that attacked Iyanden or is it unique? My faves are the Tyrant Guard and the Meiotic Spores, though they all look great. I love how you didn't cheap out on the Rippers and loaded them up on those bases.

This army is killing me! Though I'm working on those baby armies of Chaos, the army I really want to build is a Tyranid army... just so dang expensive!
