The Beginning of a Sixth 40k Army: The Dreaded Tyranids

On the 11th August I decided as a spur-of-the-moment thing to buy one of the superb new Carnifex models because it a) looked like a fun project b) is arguably one of the best 40k models (although nowadays there's so many great models, but then this also has the size factor) c) is a model you will often/almost always field in a Tyranid army d) is kickass.

Also, having read from front to back the old and new Tyranid Codex and being impressed (especially with the new codex since Tyranids are now better) it was time for me to begin a Tyranid army.

Today I sprayed the Carnifex, and the Tau Commander mentioned in my last post, and based and commenced painting the Tau Commander.

Back to Warhammer 40k

It's been a while since I made a blog post, simply because I've had nothing to add. Watching a lot of TV programs is all I've been up to. Recently though I returned to Warhammer 40k, after being away from it for about 5 months.

So far I've sprayed 17 Catachans, 20 Dark Eldar (16 Warriors, 2 Sybarites, Haemonculous, Lord), 12 Fire Warriors, 2 Gun Drones, 4 Flesh Hounds, 10 Terminators and 2 Teleport Homers, 5 Space Marine scouts, and a Space Marine with Multi-melta. 73 miniatures. Enough to keep me very busy.

I'm well on my way to completing the painting of the 12 Fire Warriors and 2 Gun Drones, I've started to paint 3 of the Catachans, and I've based all but the 10 Terminators and Space Marine with Multi-melta.

I also bought one of the new Tau Crisis Battlesuit Commanders, which when sprayed and painted, will give me the minimum Tau starting force.
