Additional Tyranid stuff

Well, I've got some more Tyranid models, in the form of two Zoanthropes (got 2nd hand) that were only base-coated black. So, I went with my revised green/ purple colour scheme (Orkhide Shade, Knarloc Green, then Gretchin Green and Liche Purple, then Leviathan or Hormagaunt Purple) and with some pinning, they're ready for battle. This means I have 4 Zoanthropes, arranged in two units of two.I also did some trading and got 20 Termagants with Devourers (assembled and primed in white), as well as 4 more Tyranid Warriors. These new models will probably be finished in 2-3 weeks and will be painted in green/ purple. When they are done, the size of my Tyranid force pool will break the 3,000 points mark.

Pictures of Tyranid Army - Part 1

First, the Trygon Prime that I built today.
Second, the unit of Raveners - 3 of them are plastic and 2 are older metal models

And finally, the Hive Tryant - I added a Carnifex carapace at the back to represent the 2+ save enhanced carapace and put an Adrenal glands part on top to add some more close combat power.

Tyranid Rebuild-continued

So, most of my proposals for re-building my Tyranid army are finished, as far as getting them in a usable state are concerned. I got some Raveners & a Trygon, as well as the new 5th edition codex this week. The Raveners are built, the troop units are organised (with a last minute buff to the Genestealers) and all that's left is the Trygon and I should have between 2,250 and 2,500 points of force to use (for the moment).
Here's how the force will look HQ Hive Tyrant - Lash whip, bonesword, heavy venom cannon, extended carapace, adrenal glands and using the Leech and Paroxysm powers Tyranid Prime - Two boneswords, deathspitter, adrenal glands
ELITES 2 Zoanthropes (I will eventually get around to getting a third one)
TROOPS 20 Genestealers (including a Broodlord) - with adrenal glands (pricey squad, that one) 3 Tyranid warriors - with rending claws & deathspitters 4 Tyranid warriors - scything talons, 3 deathspitters, adrenal glands & 1 venom cannon 24 Termagants with devourers 1…

Chaos Sorcerers

I've recently finished building and painting a couple of Chaos Sorcerers for my Warhammer Chaos army. One has been painted purple and will be a follower of Slaanesh, while the other is green and will follow Nurgle.

While the green sorcerer is on a round base, this is only temporary, as he will be put on a chariot.
