I have always hated the metalic caparace until now, gj op. Mind answering how is that base made / painted :D?
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.
Love it, the dark bodies and the vibrant carapace. They look spectacular!
Oh holy These are Looking epic
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.
wow thanks so much!
We're you going for a deep-sea or a space vibe? That's what it looks like. Just gorgeous.
I was inspired by Sapphire Flower Beetles & Blue-Ringed Octopuses . I thought it'd be neat to portray Tyranids as both beautiful & deadly.
Also you got + for not wasting money for these spinning wheels just to show off your model.
Haha, thank you!
Looks fantastic, I love the orange bits.
Damn, what kind of color shift?
Wow! It looks amazing. Great job. Beautifully detailed.
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!
