Here’s the first model for my new Tyranid Swarm!

I got an amazing deal on the Nid half of the Leviathan box! When it arrived this beast was already built so I couldn’t resist!


The new range is breathtaking. Couldn’t resist any longer.


This will be the colour scheme moving forward, you may remember my last Swarm (Hive Fleet Ariagnee) it’s basically an upgrade on that.


I’ve chosen natural tones as my inspiration for the army is insects and crabbing with my son!


It’ll be a slow burner at first but will ramp up as the new Codex approaches.


Hopefully Nids win the Battle of Ogrham so we can see the new shinies!!


Thanks for looking!

Seems like ages since my last update! (Been busy on other projects)

Here’s my latest effort!

I’ve stuck with a muted scheme because that’s my style.

The sculpts in the Leviathan box are stunning, can’t say enough good things about them!

I got a great deal on the first lot and now my brother has given me a second Tyranid lot from the Leviathan box!

Question is which units should I double up on? And which ones should I let go?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks lads!


The Nicronomicon, good advice, I’ll get rid of the second Psychophage and Neurotyrant!




I’ve made a small 1k list.


I have 30 Termagants, 5 Barbgaunts, a Hive Tyrant, 3 Von Ryan’s Leapers and 2 Screamer Killers!


Should keep me busy!


Better start making a dent in the Termagants!!

Couldn’t resist the Von Ryan’s Leapers any longer!


What an absolute treat!


I enjoyed the building (something I don’t usually enjoy) and the detail was amazing.

Damned auto correct changed the names lol!


What would you guys like to see next? Hive Tyrant or Termagants?

Thanks for looking!

I’ve been knee deep in other projects but I’ve painted the model my eldest daughter got me for my birthday!

Here’s the Parasite of Mortrex:

I’ve finished my Hive Tyrant for Hive Fleet Ariagnee!


As I’m building towards a Synaptic Nexus list I wanted for her to look more psychic.


I saw Xenith’s conversion and shamelessly copied it! I’m rather pleased with the results.

Again, massive shout out to Xenith!

Please forgive my rubbish photography!

Been a little quiet on the Tyranid front recently.


My boy wants me to do an “Eastern Fringe” inspired collection, that is Ultramarines, Tyranids and T’au!


I’m thinking Nid and T’au themed terrain (currently we’re using Imperial ruins and trenches)


With that in mind here’s the latest model for the Nids, I’ve gone with the Psychophage:

Thanks as always for looking! Hopefully I can get a run on this project so plenty more to come!
