Default Claws of the Kraken

This is my log for my Imperial Fists and Tyranids from Hive Fleet Kraken. I have some fluff (in my head) for this, and will be posted at a later date.

I like to include links in my first post, so here's the first one:

Based Zoanthrope:

Ripper Swarms:



Metal Hive Tyrant:

Default Imperial Fists Transmission and Zoanthrope WIP

++Incoming transmission from Scout Sergeant Serpentius++
++Subject: Enemy forces spotted++
++Battle Brothers; I have spotted Tyranid vanguard forces. I plan to take out their leader whilst my Scout Squad return to you with information.


This appears to be the lead creature. Something is interfering with the signals, and the Tyranids are advancing on my position. Prepare for battle, I will take out as many of these creatures as possible.
They’re here. It’s been an honour serving with you, my Battle Brothers. For the Emperor, for Dorn++
++Transmission over++

I really like the contrast between the 'brain' and 'skin'

Thanks - I'm glad you like the contrast as that was the effect I was hoping to achieve. I think I may use green as the spot colour for my army now.

Nicely done Chris. That is a well executed paint job and a cool little intro transmission.

Thanks KjellThorngaard, I'm really "looking forwards to" applying it to at least 60 Gaunts

Thanks buddy, and cheers for the rep

Thought I'd post the based Zoanthrope here, in a duel with a Librarian:

Default 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.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got frustrated with the mold lines on the stealers, so painted up some rippers - sorry to disappoint,


5 Ripper Swarms:


The Rippers with the Zoanthrope:

Default Metal 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.

Also, I'm thinking of changing from Imperial Fists to Crimson Fists - whilst I like Imperial Fists, I feel I would have more fun painting Crimsons - what are your thoughts on this?
