W40K: Tyranids Trygon Prime Completed

I could not let this big guy stare at me too long in grey plastic, he was calling out to be painted.  So I managed to finish the first of two Trygon Prime's for my Tyranid army.  As I stated earlier these guys are just great to put together, and the painting was not too difficult on them either.  There were some tight spots along the bottom of the base to get too (I could have painted him separately from the base, but I usually like to prime my models and bases together.)  I know I am using the "speed paint" method to get these guys completed, but for me, the Tyranid army is just another tabletop army for me to play with.  Anyways the "dip" method really works out quite well for the bugs, and I really do not see any difference if I was to "wash" the entire model with "Devlan Mud" or use my "dip" method.  The idea is still the same which is to provide a shadow effect in all the creases.

  2. Thanks Guys. When I build the second Prime, I'm probably going to use the optional chest plates that are available just to be able to recognize the two.
