I have always hated the metalic caparace until now, gj op. Mind answering how is that base made / painted :D?


aiyo-la

Thanks! I use Vallejo Thick Mud as texture paint, base with Mechanicus Standard Grey, wash with Nuln Oil, and then drybrush with Vallejo Cold Grey.

These are my favorite tyranid models! I think I'll try to emulate that with a turbodork colorshift paint, black contrast, and NMM blades with a satin/gloss varnish on the metallics if I give it a try.


aiyo-la

wow thanks so much!


CN_Minus

We're you going for a deep-sea or a space vibe? That's what it looks like. Just gorgeous.


aiyo-la

I was inspired by Sapphire Flower Beetles & Blue-Ringed Octopuses . I thought it'd be neat to portray Tyranids as both beautiful & deadly.


Void-Tyrant

Beautifull. Also you got + for not wasting money for these spinning wheels just to show off your model.


aiyo-la

Haha, thank you!

How do you make colour shift look that good?

I would love to know the colors you use for the non metallic parts! That grayish brown? I quite like it!
