Ruined Tank Factory (Forge World OOP)

In about two weeks there will be our next small tournament and I thought this is the right occasion to paint some new terrain for. So I finally finished my "Ruined Tank Factory" from Forgeworld, which I bought last year

I wanted to accommodate the colors of the Adeptus Mechanicus somehow. I hope that I succeeded by using the red on the front of the building. By the way, the kit was unfortunately not complete - the roof and two walkways on the intermediate level were missing. So I crafted my own appropriate alternatives...

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...
