Halfway into October


The minipainting discord paintalongs are good sources of reasons to paint specific models.

For example, this one is for the Hivemindalong (i.e. “paint a Tyranid model”)

An old-school plastic Tyranid Warrior from the game Advanced Space Crusade, but with a modern 40mm round base instead of the original 25mm square. Also, painted in a modern style.

Released by Games Workshop in 1990. This was a game I played quite a lot back in the day, exploring the intestines and guts of Tyranid hive ships with the early versions of Space Marine Scouts. I had a single tyranid warrior left to paint for some reason. So, here it is.

The Basilisk from the Bones 5 core set.
Unknown sculptor
Bones Black hard PVC
50mm base

Yephima the Cloud Giantess

from the Bones 5 Greek Odyssey expansion

Bones Black hard PVC
75mm base

This is an updated version of an older model. Same styling, equipment etc, but much larger and with a far better pose. I painted her with the same general colour scheme.

Unknown, I think it is from AD&D or Shadowrun, but what is it?
Ral Partha, 1990s or early 2000s.

This is another from the lead rot salvage pile. I drew inspiration from the patterns and colours of the African Wild Dog.
