I initially read “Sapphic Fury” and was _really_ confused…


A_Shady_Zebra

I am so on board for this


Onderon123

I was so excited for hive fleet sapphos


SYLOH

It consumed the Lesbos sector.


SirOwlbear

I know too many people who would be willingly devoured by such a hive fleet.


SYLOH

Same, until I clicked the thumbnail I thought I would be getting Sisters of Battle.


DinosaurAlert

Heh, same here. Then I thought “This guy must be Japanese.”


aiyo-la

Ok had to double check the [dictionary](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/sapphiric) haha


aiyo-la

Oh geez... I was playing on the word "Sapphire"... now I need to change it.


ReddJudicata

No, you absolutely don’t. It’s awesome.


tmdblya

Naw, you’re good. Don’t think you can change titles, anyway.


King_Jaahn

Sapphiral to play on viral?


ShallowBasketcase

Lesbian space bugs!!


HomieCreeper420

More like “They-were-good-friends Fury” /s


Fallofcamelot

They were hivemates


WaywardStroge

Just a couple of bugs, sharing a rug.


Boner_Elemental

I thought he was just doing a riff on how Tyranids are often given names for women. You made me double check, heh


MrFact999

Girls Night! *bug sounds*


threepwood007

Phew me too. Even thought the colors were a thing I just didn't know about


faithfulheresy

I definitely did too.


BCEagle2121

I also read it this way. Glad I’m not the only one…


revlid

100% this.


just_some_Fred

I was expecting Sisters of Battle


19Bookie19

Looks great! Is that colour shift paints or coloured metallics?


aiyo-la

Green Stuff World Cobalt Blue - color shift paint


19Bookie19

Awesome thank you! Really nice job applying it. How many coats? Airbrush?


aiyo-la

Normal brush. Mostly 1 coat max 2. Having a glossy black basecoat is really important!


19Bookie19

Great to know, Ive been working on Thousand Sons test pieces with GSW Psychotic Illusions


Black_Mercury

Oh rad, I just bought that paint for my nids a few days ago. Awesome to see it in use.


Magumble

Dammn the dimachearon is bigger then i thought.


Le5arge

These may be my favourite tyranids i have ever seen. I love the carapace. Amazing job!


aiyo-la

Thank you!!


schrodingers_spider

I'm suddenly considering how some enterprising 40k inhabitant may try to turn shiny Tyranid carapaces into a trade, and how it could end up as a Grimdark version of Jurassic Park.


FighterNexas

Well, I definitely read that title wrong. But more importantly, those look great! Those colors work so well.


Vampersand720

that carapace and wings are gorgeous and yeah, holy shit the dima is massive


aiyo-la

Thank you!


Lilboul

Dude, dats insane Gj


aiyo-la

Thanks!


threepwood007

They look friggin beautiful. The carapace shininess with the bone scythes is excellent


aiyo-la

Thanks!


elguntor

Is there any way you can upload a higher definition video of these to Youtube or something? I would really like to get a close look at the colour scheme. It is amazing!

Holy shit. That is amazing, the paint scheme and all. I only wish to be able to get to this level of painting some day. Fantastic job! If you do not mind me asking. How long does/did it take for you to paint the model/army wise?


aiyo-la

Thanks! Big guys like the Dimachaeron took me about 3 hours. Little guys probably 30min each. Mind you I've painted about 20k points between 3 armies thus far and so I've got a system down.


SleeplessRonin

Very impressive! But what the hell is that big dude in the middle of the first shot? I've never seen that before!


scumwish

Sensational.


faribo1720

I love it, the bases are perfect with it. It makes it appear like they are standing in a spotlight on a dark world.


BCEagle2121

Really fantastic work!! And the name is just *chef’s kiss*


Protonnumber

How did you do the iridesance?


TrimSphinx

You should make a army with this look . I love it.


MrRockyguy

Really nice scheme!! What have you done to give volume to the black??


savelol

Incredible work
