Default Raken

My tyranids (dubbed 'Raken&#39, some of the first. I painted a few since then, but never took time to photograph them.
Hope they're likeable, I personally like the paintscheme, I love purple (look at my elves and that says it all :P)





I must say in all honesty, I don't like the carni that much, the second one I made, looks better. I'll try taking pics in a few days. Oh and that turquoise on the carni's back is gone, it looked stupid in retrospect...

Yeah well, I didn't like their backs, too...vunerable.
So put some spikes on it, from the carnifex, making it look a bit more menacing... or so I hoped :P

Why thank you. Did you happen to check out the Dark Elves at 'painting'?

It's okay for tabletop quality, but I can't see any Shading/Highlighting/Fancy Painting.
They just look, well, unfinished to me.

It's a nice scheme, just the painting, imo, needs more.

Now: 5/10 (Tabletop quality, nothing more, nothing less )

Honesty's a virtue, I'll try to make some more of it, and to tell you the truth, the claws seem to miss something, some 'shwing', so I'll have to come up with something...
