Retro-Nids: Makeover

As you might know, I am a child of the 2nd Edition of Warhammer 40.000 and like some older models more than their newer cousins. Take the old Tyranid models for example. They are so iconic and I still remember seeing them in the White Dwarf for the first time.

A few years ago I started to buy some of those old models and paint them in their classic paint schemes. That's something I couldn't do over 20 years ago, moneywise and in regard to my painting skills. 

Last week I dusted off my models and rebased them. After that, I went off to a small tournament (40k in 40 minutes) with some friends. I  had a lot of fun with my models but got beaten up pretty bad...

  1. Very cool! I've always been fond of those older Nids as well. Did you do anything with the bases on the Hormagaunts to help keep them from falling over, or did you just get lucky with the pictures?

    1. Thank you! I thought about it, but it was just luck. They tipped over quite a bit. LOL
