Hello Folks, It has been a long time since I made a post.
So to make a good comeback I bring to you my new bought Hierophant.
I think that I made a mistake because I first thought that painting tanks was difficult and time-stealing then but since I saw that THING in my hands, I actually know that I was wrong... ooh yeah.
Here some pics of the Tyranid still unpacked

Wow Gareth, that's an excellent tutorial...the model itself is a prime example of the care and effort you put into the beasty.

After reading all that you have your work cut out for you OP....good luck!!

this model just looks too crazy to function, let alone be a huge killy bug :p

was there much flash/chunks 'o' resin to remove from the model?

I tell you that there was enough junk on It to begin to hate Forge World
Btw I noticed that on many models the vent is made out of resin and is already there, so why the hell didn' t they do the same on my model, I nearely cryed because I thought that It was already broken

Have you found a solution for the spikes on the neck? and it looks so fragil i would be afraid that its falling it to parts when falling down etc. have you connectet the single parts with glue and thick wire? :)

I pinned every single spike on mine. Haven't lost a single one.

The front legs on yours look like they're starting to buckle already. You really should have reinforced them.

I know that cyrnic knows this is an English forum now but anyway...

Google Translate for you aye:

Above quote through Google said:
"hope you have your spike solved prob I had shat the Sun explodes the whole part, and if it falls over auseinadnerbricht / down etc. is donated to you or not at all?"
:scratchhead:

Anywho... the 'phant is coming along nicely, look forward to seeing it painted.

Grish
