So here comes the second half of the Tyranid painted models. This time the monstrous creature special! As I got into this scale of model I had to do more painting and less wash for coloring on the skeletal bone as I did with the smaller Tyranids. However as I was going for quickly painting an army rather than making the best army I could paint I was just blocking out colors with base painting and allowing the Mid-Tone Army Painter dip to shade the model.
First up a pair of Trygons. I really fell in love with the scale of these models. At this time in 2011, these are the big boy bugs in the Tyranid army. I didn't play back in the Carnifex days of 4th. Visually these models just strike me as being the boss monstrous creature for my Nids. Again I used green and pink to help pull out some details and break up the coloring on the model. However my "wet brushed" red on black worked great for claws to give them a nice organic feel.
