Smooth execution
Nice Scheme
Well made bases
Equal Quality all round

9/10

The only thing i can think of with how to improve is to blend the black carapace more. But honestly... unless there was a super army (i.e. one of Gareths :P) at a tourny i'd vote for yours. Very nice indeed.

The only thing i think would give you a slip up is the Privateer Press bases.

Utterly amazing, that is a lovely presented army.

Presentation - 9/10
Conversions - 8/10
Paint job - 8/10

Overall - 9/10

And seriously.... two Trygons! I did a double take there, I couldn't believe my own eyes at first. Awesome.

Those look pretty amazing, indeed.
Noticed quite a bit of Forgeworld pieces too.
Over all, very nicely done.

Wow, now that's a great looking Horde of Bugs ya got there . I love the scheme, and painting and the bases are excelent. Are those the bases from Warmachine? The ones that all of your Gaunts have?

While I am not afan ofthe colour scheme I do like the way it has been exectutedwith the purple providing for very good focal points that serve to break the model up.

"Bugs, Mr. Rico! Zillions of 'em!"

They're all very nicely painted. I really like the daker color scheme. Too many of the 'Nid armies I've seen look like sickening rainbows. I like this one a lot. Great work.

Your bases look really sharp, too... errr... smooth. Yeah.

Awesome job,

-Grandpa Ducky

When I saw the title I thought it would be some kinda Tyranid-captured Chimera tank...

This blew my mind.

9/10

A+ and five gold stars for you, my friend.
