Although my main current painting projects are my two IDIC Eldar Fire Prisms and Falcon tanks, I just couldn't resist taking a break to starting painting some of my Tyranids. I wanted a paint scheme that was easy to paint en masse, but still looked good and fitted in with the bug theme. Welcome, The Stinger Hive Fleet...
I have had these Tyranids since third edition, but only with the new Codex have I been inspired to actually put paint to model. Based around the Nids in the 4th Edition rulebook, my Stinger Fleet use black as the main colour, and only a five stage yellow highlight to pick out some sections, they made way for a quick paint job. Leaving me with the option to do some freehand work on the larger carapaces, helping even further to enhance the already fun side of painting the bugs.
Here are a few more shots of my first finished brood, The Stinger Hive Fleet Hormagaunts.
