Shadow War: Armageddon | Tyranid New Spawn

Well, the first warrior in the form of a "New Spawn" is ready for battle. The veteran hobbyist surely recognizes that the scything talons I used do not belong to the original kit. That's true because at that time there were simply no scything talons for the pewter tyranid warriors. However, to remain faithful to my motto as much as possible, I simply took the scything talon of the classic hormagaunts. I think they fit really well.
The arms are fully magnetized, so I am as flexible as possible with regard to armament/equipment as the campaign progresses. It was fun to paint this model and there are four more warriors and many weapons options to come...

Shadow War: Armageddon | Tyranid Prime Operative

The first miniature for my Tyranid kill team is ready for battle - a Tyranid Prime! This guy is based on a 2nd edition Hive Tyrant and will support my team in the time of need. The rest of the miniatures is already primed and fully magnetized. So, no excuses for further delays! Deadline is the 10th July, the day of our small tournament...

Back in Business

It's been a while since the last update. What happened?

Well, I went to Japan for several weeks again. All in all, it was my seventh time there. 😅

I had a wonderful time and here are some impressions of my trip:




 



In the meantime, Games Workshop released "Shadow War: Armageddon" and my friend and I are pretty excited. Therefore, I excavated some of my old Tyranid miniatures. 

The kill team will consist mainly of second edition Tyranid warriors. In order to show the progress of the warriors accordingly, I will magnetize the miniatures as far as possible.

First magnetized weapons.
Some stripped miniatures.
Slightly converted Hive Tyranid aka Tyranid Prime.

Deathwatch - Hammertime!



I am happy to present you my Watch Captain of the Deathwatch. I always wanted to build a model in this kind of exaggerated attack pose. As you can easily see, the bad boy originates from the Raven Guard. Unfortunately, he is still nameless yet. Any proposals?

Deathwatch Venerable Dreadnought

Last Week, I got hold on a really cheap Grey Knights Dreadnought, although I don't play Grey Knights. 😅 
Instead, I converted the model slightly and painted it the last evenings, to eventually look like a Deathwatch Venerable Dreadnought. Why? Well, I plan to play with a small Deathwatch team at our next internal tournament. Hurray!



The original model:
