Default My Hive Fleet Hecatonchires

This is my Tyranid army that i had started back long ago and restarted more recently with the 5th ed book. There is a small background history to it and maybe ill get around to filling it all in one day but for now I make this the starting log of what i have finished and what is to be finished.

I don't mind critic's about my work and I welcome all comments that people wish to give them as I add some of the units up and maybe finish ones that I have been meaning to get too. I may even put up a few battle reports when i get the chance to make them!.

Anyways I guess ill start with one of the leaders of the fleet, my swarmlord which i got and immediately went to work painting it. The color scheme for my army is a bit odd and there was a joke hiding in it that may get revived one day. (it had to deal with Christmas) but its designed for a sorta jungle feel to it. So i went with a Dark Angel's green for the skin part and several layers of alternating reds (scab, gore and blood) to do the armor and blades.

First Swarmlord -





Next up are my Tyrant Guards (2 old style and 1 of the new)


with a close up


A pair of Zoanthropes ( i haven't bought the new ones yet)


A friend of mine did the base for me on this one, i really liked it.


and the last ones up for now are my Tyrgon prime and Mawloc.



My Trygon got to play with an old Wraithlord a friend gave me and didn't want to use anymore.



C&C welcome and appreciated!!

I have at least one brood of genestealers for broodlord to lead and two hive guards one of which is painted. I didn't bring them out to take pics XD ill get them up as soon as I can. It's funny that eldar are used alot in my bases with the tyranids when I don't play against them to often lol.

I have a few other figures not painted and ill get them up as well. thanks for the reply ^_^

I forgot to mention this but I am curious if anyone has any good suggestions on things to use for building interesting jungle style bases. I have seen a few things that im willing to try out but any and all suggestions are welcome.

my only cc with all your stuff is maybe painting the trashed wraithlord in a contrast color would help break the orange n red pattern. For the jungle stuff , look in the scenery section of the forum for the post of some1 who made a tutorial on using real plants on base.

Otherwise, cool stuff

Thanks for the comment, i was told the same thing since it blends in with the armor color but at the time I had put it together and painted it I lacked the color that I wanted originally so I went with one that i had color's for. (sadly it was a similar one to the armor) and so I haven't had the heart to attempt a repaint over the body.

Ill go take a look in the scenery section, i dunno about using real plants but ill still read it! thanks.

I didn't get time to gather the genestealers for a pick, only a hand full are actually painted. Been so busy X_X but i manage to take a few pics of stuff i had in my army already painted (not based yet).

First in the list is one of my melee carnifex, I do wanna do something with his base to make it stand out and any ideas are welcome.


And a nice mug shot of its face.


Following him we have one of my lictor's. I do plan on getting my deathstalker painted but for now this one is sneaking onto the forums first.


Lastly for this update is a pair of older warriors I had. One even has a venom cannon XD



Any and all C&C is welcome and hope you enjoy the pics.

Very nice so far

One suggestion, perhaps a light drybrush of a lighter green on the bodys (it looks like a dark green on there but if its black do grey)

That doesn't sound like a bad idea TKK but i dont want to lose to much of the darker skin camo feel. What type of green were you thinking of? ( it is Dark Angel Green just to let you know) My drybrushing techniques are far from good so ill take any suggestion and see how it works.

Also thanks for the rep!! ^__^ im glad you like them!

I think that you should probably drybrush the dark angels green with, oh...Knarloc green? I'm no expert.
