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!

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!

A former creation from the last edition codex transplanted to this current one. The Tusker was a nasty anti-armor beast, and still is with crusher claws and tusk. A bit more diminished now but the model was still a lot of fun to build and paint with all the nasty spikey bug bits to go.

Now that's a Ripper Swarm!!!
When I first started collecting this army, I never thought about using ripper swarms, mostly because there were other better choices and modeling 3 rippers on a base didn't seem like a swarm to me. Then Forge World went and created these sweet models, and now I have ripper swarms as I envisioned them! These are some of FW's best creations for the nid line, they were a blast to paint. Let me know what you think!?

Well it's a whole new month, and last month was a great success when it came to this army, I was able to paint and finish a full legal army technically. So with coming out of a month like May, I am going to take it easy and push to get more of the smaller bugs that make up my list finished. I figure in a month or so I could punch out all of these guys and put a major dent in my nid backlog. So it's going to be a Gaunt June!
Spinegants....Termagants....Hormagaunts....Ripper Swarms..Oh My!
Bonus Bugs! How about an Alpha Warrior and another Fex!

Time to shift gears you might say. With last month being filled with nid goodness, I picked up a few boxes of Dark Eldar warriors to build up on a running thought I had for a future army. These 4 squads will join my already finished squad for troop choices. All armed with Splinter Rifles and Cannons, I have tried to make every model a little different from each other. Well looks like I got some painting ahead of me....What else will I need? Stay Tune! ;)
