Default Imperial Guard vs. Tyranids (Many Pictures 56k warning perhaps?)

Alright guys I'll start off with a warning that I wasn't sure if this was the right forum to post this in. These shots were more of an instance of my Warhammer buddy and I setting up some models for the heck of it. We thought it looked somewhat interesting (certainly not up to the level of those seen here), but none the less it might be mildly entertaining for some.


My buddy and I taking a look at the board. Zombine protection in background ;D


Aeiral view taken by passing Imperial Navy scouts before dropping payload


The Tyranid Wave erupts from the overgrown brush


Termagaunts advance across No-mans land, already turning into a sickening Tyranid infestation


Rippers Used To Clear a path, the hive mind pushes them to toss their bodies upon minefields! A wounded guardsman can do nothing as they advance.


A hive tyrant directs the flow of the battle


Sentinal's poised as skirmishers in a desperate bid to destroy these monstrous creatures!



Imperial Guard Trench Line, men huddle under the shelter of earth, awaiting the final onslaught of their stranded element. Some men pray to the emperor, minutes before guants stream into the muddy pits of death.



Imperial defenders wait until the last moment before blowing an improvised promethium explosive. Though crude, its effects on the Tyranids are impressive, that is until another swarm takes their place.


Command Squad struggle to keep up with the chaos in the chain of command, Tyranid growth has led vegetation to overgrow everything, even much needed supplies


Tyranid vanguard organisms burst into action. These 'stealers have hidden themselves in one the IG quarters. If you look closely, you may even see an Adeptes Astartes advisor, such is the importance of the comm link beacon, and thus the battle.






ENJOY!

Cool, clashing of armies. I like the Guard but you can go so much more in depth

I'm an old base kind of guy, I think the new bases look better, but as someone who started in 3rd edition back in '99, I still have an attachment to good ol' goblin green and flock. ;D

I think your bases would look better with some sand underneath then two colors of flock will make the base look much better. This base looks two monochromatic.

Looks great. I've always wanted to try something similar, but most of my opponants don't have fully painted armies. Looks kinda silly

If your worried about the bases and looking for a quick fix, try adding splotches of watered down chestnut ink for patches of dirt/mud.
