Tyranid Update: Troll Forged Miniatures Alien Brains
Quick update today and non-Ravenwing related.
I've been playing a lot with my Tyranids and loving them.. my black/puple/orange paint scheme looks awesome on the tabletop en masse and I'm working on snow basing for the army - I think the contrast of the pure, white snow to the dark black/purple will offset the whole thing beautifully.
I intend to get the basing done for most of the Gaunts and a couple of Tervigons done this week/weekend.. so you can expect more visual updates later in the week.
What I wanted to show case today was the Zoanthrope alternative models I've bought - NOTE: I only ordered them this weekend after my final round of playtesting confirmed that I wanted to order 6 Zoeys in... so I havent seen them in the flesh yet, but they look great.
The models come from Troll Forged Miniatures over in the States and they look sweet.
Check out the site here, they have a "community sculpt" thing going on, whereby dudes can throw out ideas on their forums and some of them make it sculpt/production.. it's kinda cool.
Either way.. it means that they have some funky stuff that I personally am not interested in, but it also means they have some real gems.
More crazy Psychic Choir Nids for me to play with whoot! In the meantime, the locals will just have to put up with 2 "real" Zoeys and a handful of stand in Warriors! lol.. I'm working on it boys!
Hmmm...maybe one of the Troll Forged boys will see this and ship my order double time! Unlikely...but if they do.. it's the international going to Humphris!
