It's been so long since I've seen those Zoanthropes. They're awesome man. The shells remind me of a cockroach. Another great batch of models.
Out of curiosity, do you 'Ard coat them? They're always so glossy.

In my opinion Mr. Barf looks better than Mr. vomit.

What kind of scary-ass cockroaches have you seen? They really will be all that remains after the apocalypse...they'll be the perpetrators!

Great work as ever, bud. Not really a fan of the lictor models as the feeder tendrils look silly, but the quality of brush work on both is superb.

I think these being bigger then the gaunts the pinky sections need more work then what you gave the gaunts. I appreciate the gaunts need to be done quickly, but these are bigger and more individual, and need more attention. I really think the pink areas are weak and stand out like a sore thumb.

Apart from that they're nice, like all your other stuff.

actually they have more work, theres 5 layers on the pink, still it seems to not be enough. but just as the gaunts, they look better in real life. and as ive said before, im not putting as much attention to these old models as i do to my 4th ed and forge world models

Sorry if I sound negative, its just you've set the bar so high for yourself with previous work.

Remember when I challenged you to make the old Zoanthropes look good?

Well, you won. :P It's still hardly my favourite Tyranid scuplt, but with your painting it looks pretty darn good. Love the Lictors as well - like Tom said the sculpt on the feeder tendrils look silly, but I don't think any amount of brilliant painting could remedy that. Looks like he's got a bit of a Brainsneeze going on. If there's one thing I don't like it's the green base rims as opposed to brown, but that's more of a personal preference.
