Tyranid Alien Invasion

Click picture to open the full gallery

A refurbished Tyranid army is given the airbrush treatment to unleash its bloody visage. You may have seen some sneak peaks of this army on Terminus Est, the proud new owner of this menagerie of alien beasts. The models were originally primed, painted, and dipped in varnish. This obscured a lot of detail of the original models, but allowed us the opportunity to develop a particular paint scheme that would still look good. If you see this army in person, be sure to check out all the additional highlights throughout. Click the pic above to open the full gallery in another tab.

    1. I have to say I'm not really a fan. I see how you laid out the colors with the airbrush, and I'm sure it was quick, but it just looks it was airbrushed and done. I feel like some more detailing would have made them look more "complete." I think it will have an awesome effect from the table, but with any sort of close examination that's what my impression is. To each his own of course and I hope this is taken as the constructive criticism it's intended to be. I give you props for trying something different.
