Well, I've been on vacation, but I haven't been idle, although I must say that it's been nice to avoid the Internet for a while. I actually got 5 games in - three in a small tournament! I learned a great deal, and I'm having some misgivings over my list. I was also the only one with all of my army painted.
Speaking of which...I am VERY close to finishing all of the Tyranids that are in my possession. I still need another tyrant (see below), and I'd like to go about converting two Tervigons and a Tyrannofex, but as of right now, I only have 3 Zoanthropes to assemble and paint (one which will be converted into a Doom), about 24 gaunts to paint and finish, and 16 Genestealers that are just basecoated. Everything else is done!
It all needs a good Dullcote, of course, but I can't express the sense of relief. Now, picking up the 5 gaunt box on occasion will not be akin to torture anymore.
And I don't think I'll feel so defeated by CSM...I think I'll have fun painting such individualists.
are two sets of MC scything talons. In the bottom of the picture are 4 of those talons, modified with a small hacksaw and twisted around for the 4 boneswords necessary to create a Swarmlord.
I briefly considered magnetising the Hive Tyrant body, but it will actually be cheaper in the long run to just buy another Tyrant.
Maybe I can finish tonight. Stay tuned.
