Here is my finished Trygon. This was an interesting challenge for me because it was the first time I have had to paint such a huge monstrous creature. There are so many little nooks on this model that I kept findiing more and more to paint when I thought I was finished. It was definitely a learning experience but in the end it looks great on the table, which is what I was going for, the pictures don't quite do it justice, but here they are:

Take it outside in the sunlight and get a photo without a flash. It should look a lot closer to what it is in person.

Thanks for the advise. I think I'm definitely going to have to start doing that. The flash on my phone camera really washes out a lot of the color.

These were fun to paint. So far my 'nids have been a lot of fun to paint overall and a great learning experience.

Here are my two Tervigons, primed and ready to go. The bases are being prepared separately and will be glued on once the models are painted.

Any change you could post your pictures as JPEGs instead of GIFs? It seems a shame to show off those paintjobs in 256 dithered colors :)
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

I tried posting as jpegs and it kept telling me the files were too big. I agree though, it's a shame to lower the picture quality. It certainly doesn't help that my camera isn't the best either. I'll see if I can figure out a way to get a better picture type to load. Maybe I'll see about hosting them on Flickr or a similar site.
