Sunday Progress.

Yes, it is Sunday again and that generally means an update. This Sunday is no exception and although things haven't gone as quickly as he would have hoped, Inso has sent over a few pix of his Tyranid progress.

So far, he has put the base coat on the plates of 6 of the Gaunts. This is purely another coat of Bubonic Brown:

He has also gone a stage further and finished the plates on 8 of the Gaunts. This was done with a watered down coat of Bleached Bone applied to the edges of the plates:

Inso has mentioned that the 8 Gaunts in the last pic are made up of standard Termagant bodies with Genestealer Scything Talons added. From the beginning, he has wanted to keep his Tyranid horde more 'natural' than the norm (for Tyranids) so he has no ranged weaponry and all of his Tyranids have claws instead. The idea behind it being that a few Tyranid organisms got stranded on a planet, left for millenia and evolved to become an indiginous species...a bit like the bugs in Starship Troopers.

Well, it is bingo tonight so I doubt if there will be more painting done but tomorrow is a bank holiday so Inso will have time to get a little bit further.

That's it for now.

Catch you later!
