New project : Tyranid Hivefleet Cthulhu Flying Swarmlord

Publié le 27 Février 2016 par Hellric

When I saw the new Hive tyrant / Swarmlord kit, I immediately thought I should do something with it, but not sure what to do. Things got clearer when I saw the new Zoanthrope models : as I did in the past, I would use the big head of this potent psyker on the tyrant body, so it get a flavor of the second edition tyrant (the one with a big, alien queen-like head. I really loved the big spinal thing of the new Zoanthropes, that I used this on the back, showing the monster is a true leader... then I had to sculpt the torso/neck to match both kits but it went smoothly.

I went for ma favorite weapon combination of the new tyrant kit : 4 boneswords ! I know tyrannies should only have 6 limbs, but hell it looks so cool like this... ;)

And of course, to match the requirement of HF Cthulhu, I gave it some homemade feeder tentacles.

I'm very happy of the result, the model looks dynamic and everything comes together well, hope you'll enjoy it too.

Tyranid Hivefleet Cthulhu : Omega pattern Queen - painted

Publié le 9 Février 2016 par Hellric dans Tyranids, Cthulhu

Soooo folks, you've been very patient so here we are, the beast is done ! At least, with the first set of limbs... I went for another paint scheme, reminding the one of my Hive Queen Primus. <i'll call this one the "Omega pattern" Queen, the ultimate psychic leader of the Hive. Perfect companion for Mr Hydra's Queen of Thorns.

To be continued in a next update with tentacle limbs...
