Metal Tyranid Hive Tyrant WIP

Ok, so you may or may not remember this post, in which I put a (blurred out) picture of my Hive Tyrant. Well, here's a WIP of the beast in question. Since taking this picture, I have started work on the carapace, and found a proper base (not made with foamboard).

I got it about a year and a half ago, and the Tyrant was an absolute nightmare to put together. I plan on getting a plastic Tyrant, and possibly magnetise it.

Ripper Swarms

The sounds of hundreds of tiny gnashing teeth made Sergeant Serpentius turn suddenly. Down below, he could see hordes of rippers moving towards his position. Serpentius fired a round from his combi-flamer into the mass of bodies, hoping to frighten them away, but they kept coming. A shadow passed across him, and he glanced up, searching the sky. The Scout Sergeant shuddered as something stabbed through his back and into his heart, and he fell to the floor, dead.

Psychic Duel - Soul Drinkers Librarian & Zoanthrope

I finished my Soul Drinkers Librarian for the Army Painting Challenge, so I thought I'd photograph my based Zoanthrope while I was photographing him, so here they are:

Almost finished Zoanthrope

So here's the Zoanthrope, it has been based, just didn't picture it:

1) Undercoat the model with Skull White spray
2) Paint the flesh with Rakarth Flesh
3) Wash the flesh with Agrax Earthshade
4) Paint the carapace, claws, base and other armoured areas with Abaddon Black
5) Paint lines of Doombull Brown onto the carapace, leaving no gaps between the lines
6) Paint lines of Khorne Red on top, leaving some Doombull Brown showing through
7) Layer Wazdakka Red over the previous coat, again leaving Khorne Red and Doombull Brown showing through
8) Paint the brain and eyes with Warpstone Glow
9) Highlight the brain and eyes with Moot Green
10) Apply Astrogranite to the base
11) Wash the base with Nuln Oil
