What if i would start painting tyranids?
Anyway, lets get back to painting. Again i chose very simple approach as usual, keeping in mind the less steps i ll have to take, the less chances to mess somethink i ll have;-) Why I chose simplicity has another reason as well and its becouse people are usualy painting tyranid basic troops in huge numbers and as im ussualy painting gaming minis as my skills does not allow me to paint to display standart, i wanted to keep painting procedure as simple as possible to allow me assembly line style of painting if i ll have to paint huge number of these quick anytime in future. Basicly paint job consists of skin tone undercoat, followed by two layers of sephia wash on whole body. Carpace received first layer of german grey colour followed by black wash, trying to push-pull towards the reces leaving exposed parts clean. Then i started adding blue to the german grey basecoat highlighting carpace as seen on the picture. Weapon received coat of ogryn flesh wash and details were painted in scorpion green and thats it, we ve got our termagant finished in little more than half of an hour! Ideal approach for mass painting tyranid troops i guess;-)
Hope you like the colour scheme same as i am and i ll say bye for now as i must make my self cup of coffe before i ll start cuting death company marines out of sprues. See u and thanks for reading!
