In between commission projects I'm been slowly working on a Tyranid army for use by the studio. Having just finished the first unit I thought I'd start up a thread so people can take a look and follow along as the army grows.

I didn't want to use any of the usual GW colour schemes so the first thing I did was whip out the colour wheel and choose a selection of complimentary and contrasting colours. Then after a couple of test miniatures to iron out the specifics I settled on a scheme that I was happy with.

The first unit completed was a 10 strong unit of Termagants:



and here are some shots with scenery in the background:





Now that those are all sorted I'll be working on a Flying Hive Tyrant followed by a Tervigon which will round out a 500pts list.

I've also been trying to come up with a Hive Fleet name but I'm a bit stumped atm. Anyone have any ideas?

Interesting colors. A bit too garish for my taste but they look painted well enough. Have you seen Blue Table Painting's studio Tyranids? They have a similar scheme but are much more chromatic.

We decided to go with Hive Fleet Tiamat in the end.

Just finished up a Flying Hive Tyrant with converted twin linked devourers to lead the army:





Let me know what you think.

Thanks very much :) A unique scheme was one of the things I really wanted to do with this army and I think it's paid off well.

Here's a shot of some Gargoyles I've got done recently.



Just another 28 to go now......

Very nice palette you chose. Well matched and it fits the grim nature of 40k. They'll look very good when tabled together.

Tremendous application of colour theory with a retro style to boot! Maintaining unison across multiple miniatures is always a challenge; one in which you've done very well :)
