Hehe, thanks!

Next will be the Hive Tyrant on foot, here's a small list of what's in the queue:

- Hive Tyrant on foot
- 3 Lictors
- 6 Warriors
- 2 Hive Guard
- 30+ Hormagaunts

These are the minis I actually need for my 2000 points list.

Little update: I managed to paint the bases for all minis except the gaunts, prime all models and airbrush every CC weapon of the little critters. Here's a small pic of my current workspace chaos:



The past models were not equipped with any ranged weapon and I'm struggling to find a suitable colour for it.
At the moment I tend to use a pale pinkish gradient which should fit quite nicely to the current colour scheme.
On the other hand a harder contrast would make them pop out like the current close combat weapons. Other colours could be:
- olive grey
- gradient from dark to light grey
- gradient from dark red to orange
- same colours as the current cc weapons

Any ideas?

Thanks, chap!

The carapace parts and the close combat weapons are completely done with an airbrush pistol without using any washes, they only receive a slight bleached bone / skull white drybrush. All other parts of the model are painted with my usual GW paints and brushes.

Today I will work on the hive tyrant. As you could see in the previous pic I started aibrushing the carapace and hopefully I'll be done with it by today.
The next match will be on saturday and this lil' bugger needs to be assembled for it so I got to be fast to have him ready by then!

Thanks, guys!

I'm a bit on a painting spree as I was able to finish my two hive guards today. It is kind of a milestone as they were the last T6 critters in the queue - time for a rewarding beer!
