Wow. Looks like some serious boogers! It's such a great contrast to the dark on the rest of the models.

So, since im a bit ahead of the challenge, i decided to paint two big models that will be part of my 1'500 points list.

A crone and a mawloc.

Here are the two, ready to get primed.

I will use them for the second part of the challenge. As you can see, ive modified the crone a bit with scything talons from the trygon kit. I dont like my fliers with testicals. And this way it actually looks like its vector strike is as dangerous as the rule suggests.

Well, not finished completly. The facehugg... i mean tentaclids are missing and the base isnt quite finished. Ill post more pictures when ive finished those aswell. The Mawloc is primed and ready for the next steps. I also started gluing together hormagants.

Looks brilliant! Really like the scything talons conversion too, much better in my opinion.

Finally finished with the Crone.

Glued on the Tentaclids and finished the base. Althou, i think its a bit bland, so if you guys have any ideas what i could do to pimp the base a bit, let me know.

I do like your new models much more than the first ones, because the metal carapace plates are now clearly distinguishable from the blue skin. I think the hive crone is your best model yet and very nice.

For the base ... with all the bloody claws and teeth of your models, there really is only one answer:
Masacred opponents.

Massacred enemies does seem like the logical (and most fun) choice. Other than that maybe some Ripper swarms or scattered equipment such as lasguns etc.?

Quite a while since my last update.

But ive been working on some addition for my main force. The Exorcists 5th Battle company.

Since i made good progress with the tyranids, ive took the time to prepair for the upcoming campaign were gonna run. So, heres a work in progress pic of my Stormraven *Aequitas Lux*.

Theres still alot to do. Battle damage, markings, insignia, runes etc. Glue it together. I just finished the first freehand today. (The nametag you see in the pic.)

The techniques for my Astartes and my Tyranids are extremly different. It takes me alot longer to paint the Exorcists.
