Some Daemons and Tyranids (a mix of red and green)

So, having decided not to go for buying Dark Vengeance (in preference towards getting the new CSM codex, whenever that will happen - it is going to happen, right?), I ended up buying a box of the new all-plastic Plaguebearer models and have made a start on them.
I started by spraying them black, basecoating with Caliban Green, followed by Warpstone Glow and Nurgling Green and finished with a wash of Druchii Violet for the main colours. Here's a picture of one of the new ones with two old metal models.

Also, I've made some initial progress in re-painting my Genestealers with 6 models from one unit painted green (Caliban Green, Warpstone Glow, Hellion Green and finished by a wash of Druchii Violet) and purple (Naggaroth Night, followed by dry-brushing with Lucius Lilac).

Stuff to work on now

So, as the Necrons were out of the way, I'm now working on re-painting/ re-doing quite a few Tyranid models, as well as resuming the painting of my Chaos Space Marines, especially as the CSM revival is meant to be coming soon, with the arrival of the new 6th edition Starter set (featuring Dark Angels and CSMs) and supposedly after that, the next CSM codex.

What I'm going to do is crack on with re-painting models to my intended golden armour colour scheme and make sure I've got at least 30 or 40 generic CSM's. I'll also figure out what Chaos Daemons I would like to field alongside them as potential allies.
For the Tyranids, I'm making a start on stripping the paint off of a Venomthrope, Raveners and unbuilt Gargoyles, along with re-painting the Genestealers - with some units being red/ green or green/ purple. I'll also see to fitting the Raveners wi…
