Tyranids: Mawloc

I picked up the Mawloc kit on the day the new nid codex hit the shelves. I wanted to see what this new kit offered with the option to make a trygon, I was curious to see if it could hold up my already in hand Forge World Trygon kit, which I think is the best bug kit out there still. This kit sat for a while along with the army waiting for the day the fleet would form. Now I have taken the chance to build and paint it up as a test run for my FW kit to be painted in the future. I chose to go with the Mawloc of the 2 kit options since I already had a resin Trygon waiting. This kit was fairly simple to assemble and it was a lot of fun to paint. I'm looking forward to putting this monster on the table to burrow and assault all over the battlefield, and soon to be joined by a Trygon too!

Tyranids: Reinforcements from the Hive Fleet!

Reinforcements have arrived! This is my next wave of hormagaunts to join the swarm. A total of 23 more gaunts will join the swarm to assault enemy forces. These guys were extra gaunts I had laying around along with a few extras I had gotten in some trades that were in bad condition. After a little extra work on some of these bugs I got them up to speed and ready to join the others I had finished earlier this year. You can never have enough of these bugs to help in assaults.

Tyranids: Malanthrope

The Malanthrope is my third HQ addition to the swarm. A ForgeWorld model with some unique rules and background. The model is smaller then a Hive Tyrant, but it is taller then one. It's not really meant for front line duty, but it gives me an extra option when it comes to HQ choices. The new imperial armor apocalypse 2 book has new rules for this beast, but I haven't had a chance to check them out yet. It was fun, quick, and easy addition to the swarm.

The Return of Lord Axalon and his Necron Phalanx

It's funny that 2 years ago I made a post on this blog about my Necron forces and here we are 2 years later almost to that date, and guess what we have! WOO HOO! The Toasters are BACK!!!

Tyranids: Deathleaper

This is my first Nid Special Character model. The Deathleaper never caught my eye as much as the Red Terror did in the past, but when this bug became part of the regular codex I got one to try it out. So far he has seen action in one battle and died a brave bug to Tau Commander Farsight. I will have to keep trying him in other games when I have the space and points to deploy it. This bug will be the top bug of my new Lictor force now. It was a fun side paint project at least, maybe next time around they will bring back the Red Terror.....

Tyranids: Lictor Brood

Lictors are a great deep strike unit if you have some points to spare. I was lucky to score 2 of the special edition Lictors from the last army box set, when I got one in my army box I bought and then later on in a random buy online. I also have the standard lictor that is sold in the current line. I think this will be the limit of my lictor force for a good while. Sneaky Gitz!

Tyranids: Ravener Broods

Time to expand that new Fast Attack selection with another unit or 2. When I first got the last Tyranid army box set I got 3 Raveners in the set, which I didn't do much with at first. As I gathered more units I got 3 more raveners, but these were not complete. So I split the ones that were complete with all arms and made the others into a rending claw unit. So I was able to field 2 units of 3 raveners each. of course I've been told this is too small a unit, but I will have to give it a try when I can and see how they perform. I'm thinking of teaming these guys with the Trygon or Mawloc, sounds like fun!

The Slashers....

The Rending Crew....

Enjoy! :)

Tyranids:Venomthrope Brood

The Venomthrope was on my must have list of new bugs to get once I had finished enough units to make him worth taking. Well lucky for me I waited long enough that when I did go and pick one up it had hit the shelves in Finecast. While this is not my first finecast model, it my first finished one from the few I do own. I have to say that this one was worth waiting for in finecast. It only tooke me a few days to get it done. Now to try it out and see what kind of chaos I can create with all the fun special rules for this critter.

Enjoy! :)

Tyranids: Spore Mines

Let's start this new wave of my Nid army small but mighty! The mighty Spore Mine has been around for a long time, and I have been looking for these guys since I finished the Biovores. I was lucky to fine them all in a box over the summer and I got to work on these guys so I can use the Biovores. In addition these guys make for some fun terrain interdictor with the deep strike rule for spore mine clusters. Now that the new codex makes them all the same type the different types of mines are for looks only. I got 16 of these guys now and ready to be fired off to the enemies of the swarm!

Enjoy! :)

Back Online.....

Well it seems the forces of the imperium have been working against the Faithless overtime.....I'm back online after a bit of an absence.......

With the recent assault by mother nature on my location on the East Coast, and a few other events in my life my time posting on the blog has been limited this past summer. I am still working on my Tyranid army project and I plan to post some new content on the army soon!

In addition to my work on painting new units for my Nid army, I have also found and built some new additions to the army that were in storage. As you can see by my listing of projects for the blog I have added a number of new units. Spore Mines....Raveners....Trygon....and even a Mawloc.....I am moving on to another round of the armies growth. This doesn't mean I haven't stopped building up the smaller bugs, I still have a good number of Termagants and Hormagaunts I am still rolling out to rise the size of those broods. In addition I am already thinking about another 3rd wave of ideas I want to work on when I am nearly completed with this new phase of the army. Last month I wanted to release an army gallery post of what I have finished, but due to my old PC taking a lightning strike those plans have been on hold. Now that I am back online I will be posting that soon!

The Dark Eldar project is still moving forward as well. I have been working on lots of Venom's and Razorwings! I will  be posting a few pics of my current projects soon. I hope to have the majority of this army done soon, and possibly getting a chance to finally play with the army in a few games before the year is out......

Finally I am hearing rumors of a possible Necron release soon! oldest fully painted army might actually get some table time finally! I'm curious to see what this possible new codex might have in store. Of course it's still all rumor talk, and I have other things to keep me busy before this happens, but I am excited to see a new Necron codex being whispered about. I haven't truly used this army since the days of Medusa V when the Phalanx of the Bronze Face was a part of that last world campaign. WOO HOO!!!

Alright then.....let me see what I can post soon...

Enjoy! :)

Tyranids: Spinefist Termagant Brood

This is my second part to the Termagant force. This time all the little buggers have Spinefist. While not as effective as before give them the poison upgrade and an alpha warrior with the same load out and watch your enemies drop like flies. Who is going to say no to a twin linked BS 6 poison shot, oh yeah! These guys are going to be a fun surprise for anyone looking to take down a simple meat shield. These guys started as a random force of just a few similar models I had picked up in an auction buy. When I finally came around to working on these guys I liked the idea of the super shooty poison bugs. So here we are, another simple and fun unit to add more mass to my growing swarm and a little surprise to boot too! FIRE!!!

Enjoy! :)

Tyranids: Termagant Brood

Time for a little Nid update. This time we continue adding more troops to the army. The swarm of Termagants joins the hive army. These guys are a great meat shield for all the other forces out there in the army, they lead the charge and with so many on the table it is hard for anyone to wipe them out in one turn of shooting. Besides who wants to unleash what is following them anyways right.

Enjoy! :)

Tyranids: Alpha Warrior

Time for a little side project, the Alpha Warrior idea came to me when I was using my spinegant brood in a game. Why not create an alpha warrior that would give this unit superior ballistic skill and make it twin linked. Enter this guy who was a refugee from my many buys, already built but armed with what I needed some spinefist! With a little bit of work he has joined the swarm to lead a brood to war!

Enjoy! :)

The Dark Eldar Experiment (Part 3)

Did someone say we need some troops? Ask and ye shall receive...I have finished most of the needed troops for my new army. 2 squads of Trueborn Warriors and 3 squads of regular troops. The incbi are still in the painting stage, once they are done I will post new pictures of them. For now I am just glad to get this part of building the army done. Now it's onto armor, bikes, and jets! WOO HOO!! More to come soon!

The Trueborn.....

Warrior troops....

Enjoy! :)
