WIP Tyranid Hive Guard

Last Friday Da Masta Cheef and I played another great game of Battletech and while I prepare a proper Battletech battle report I would like to show off what I have been working on.

Currently I am working on a set of  two 3rd Edition Tyranid Tyrant Guard and set of  two 5th Edition Tyranid Tyrant Guard. While the progress is going well I decided to start on a set of Hive Guard as I had an idea of what color to paint the Impaler Cannons they carry.

Here are two WIP shots of both sides of one of the models. I know the lighting sucks. :( I am not sure why they are taking so long despite sitting hours at a time painting them. Maybe I look up at the screen too much as I am listening to and watching entire seasons full of episodes of Star Trek Voyager.

I think one thing I need to decide is whether to change the bone scheme for the claws. I have never found a good paint recipe and I always dread painting it when I get near those parts of the model.

Enjoy the WIP update for now. Check back in a few days and I will have a nice Battletech Report for your reading enjoyment.
