Here’s a family portrait of some of the big boys Tyranids have to offer. In the picture we have two Trygon Primes, Hive Tyrant and Swarmlord.
Tyranids have always been *THE* 40K army to me. As a result I’ve amassed quite an army of these over the years. Actually the army totals over 20k+ points (approximation using the 5th edition era Codex). My hive fleet color scheme started to shape around when the millennia changed, but as I’m a slow painter, I’ve still not finished much of them.
Here’s a detail shot of the critters:
And another shot that portrays the Trygons and their lesser brethren, the Hormagaunts!
Wolf Guard member in Terminator armor. I have 50+ terminators for a Loganwing Terminator army. Most of them are from Rogue Trader era and Warhammer 2nd Edition era, but around dozen are these new plastic ones. I have failed miserably with using decals so decided to paint company markings (the black wolf silhouette on white moon; Logan Grimnar’s Wolf Company) by hand.
Chaos Daemons is a more recent Warhammer 40K army for me. I started playing with Daemons in around 2007 or so although I’ve used Plaguebearers and Bloodletters as units with Chaos Space Marines back in the day when they were unit choices in the CSM Codex.
I finished these two babies today. They are the new (plastic kits from 2012) Plaguebearers.
These two are the first new Plaguebearers I’ve painted. 28 more to go! I have 17 older metallic Plaguebearers already painted up they mix very well with the new designs.
One of my many Warhammer 40K armies is now – finally – the Ultramarines. This time around I went for a 2000 points Dreadnought army that has 6 Dreadnoughts, 2 Masters of Forge with a retinue of servitors and 6 units of Tactical marines (ideally split into combat groups while deploying). I bought 4 Dreadnoughts from Forgeworld during summer 2012 and ordered a full set of replacement arms for them as well. That means that these dudes have all magnetized arms. I only have autocannons for the other side, but can switch the other side between plasma cannon, lascannon, assault cannon and autocannon at will.
