Default Tyranid Swarm by Awaken Realms

Hello,

Today we have a small part of a big army to show you! When you look at the photos you’ll see numerous little space bugs (indeed, a mass of them), but it’s only a small tendril of the whole Tyranid Swarm we’re currently painting. Much more of the little ones are incoming, and the ground is shaking with the footsteps of the bigger ones that are incoming…

Ever played Tower Defense games? Think of this part as the first wave of critters incoming – and there will be more and more of them, with bigger ones and biggest ones as well – so stay tuned and wait for more updates – there will be a handful of them – and see how the Hive Fleet is growing bigger and bigger!

The models were painted in our equivalent of tabletop quality – put quality-wise and pricing-wise below our Standard quality.

Also, you may see the pictures in ourgallery as well!








Make a bet – what will be coming next?

Wow, a fantastic collection on masse!

I bet next there will be some warriors, venomthropes, zoanthropes and tervigons, amidst yet more gaunts.

How many models big is the actual order?

Not exactly those...;) Wait to see.;)

The whole commission is for almost 600 models.

“Attention! Tyranid vawe incoming! On your posts, guardsmen, the cysts are descending and Emperor knows what will emerge from them!”

As promised, another update – this time Tyrannocytes and spores. Take a look at our gallery as well to see better quality photos;)
Also, see the updated gallery featuring the growing swarm!











What will emerge from the organic pods?

Wow that Tyrannocytes looks great a long with the rest of the never ending swarm. I am waiting to see what is next and then an entire group shot. Keep up the good work.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Thank you, Morfangdakka!

And the „boss” of the second wave.;) How do you like our approach to the bigger bugs in this scheme and quality of painting?

I REALLY like the tones you used for the flesh. That grey green goes absolutely beautifully with the shiny blue shells. I love it. Very inspirational.
