‘nids part 261 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.15 – bone To Done!

Posted on July 18th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Grinding this out now, having made the decision to go straight to the final highlight on the bone. I probably put too much of it on, which was my concern about making it too light, even if that is my standard across all my nids now.I’ll tackle that iss…

‘nids part 260 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.14 – Flesh and bone

Posted on July 11th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

The Chitin highlights are all done, but rather than post another ‘save point’ progress shot I;ve just cracked on with a first set of Vermilion highlights on the fleshy bits.There are still some pink bits to do on the tongue and pipework on the torso. I…

‘nids part 259 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.13 – Chitin highlights 2

Posted on July 5th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I’m cracking on with this beast now, made just a little bit tougher by the silly heatwave. On the plus side I added a new fly-screen to my window in the shed so I can have it open at night and not be swamped by flying bugs [wanting to meet their Hive Q…

‘nids part 258 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.12 – Bonewhite complete

Posted on July 2nd, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Oops, spoiler. Obviously this is the pic that gets into the blog feeds so it helps if it looks good.Which is obviously better than this WiP of the legs. Which I finally got through and what a relief.So I got a full built photo shoot so we can see how s…

‘nids part 256 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.11 – Bonewhite highlights on the legs

Posted on May 25th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Dear readers, you will recall how well the Bonewhite highlights were progressing and how pleased I was with myself. Now they say ‘pride comes before a fall’, this might be evidence of that. I estimated I’d be able to get through this big leg in one sit…

‘nids part 255 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.10 – Bonewhite highlights on the ribs

Posted on May 21st, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Having had my ‘busman’s holiday’ with the display base I’ve returned to the Hierophant. That’s not through want of trying to crack on with the other two parts of the ‘Big 3’. I tried a of metallics on the Armigers, got as far as Balthasar gold on the c…

‘nids part 254 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.9 – First chitin highlights complete

Posted on May 11th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I finally got all the spots done, so thought it was worth a ‘built’ shot. I’m glad I did as it’s helped reconcile the busyness of the spots, although it’s also highlighted the discrepancy between the turquoise denisty on the big body plates versus the …

‘nids part 253 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.8 – "My God, it’s full of stars"

Posted on May 4th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Yet more ‘highlights’, I’m going to stop apologising for this now, it’s a big model, there’s only so much I can do so it’s going to take a while and that means a lot of posts might not cover a huge amount of progress or highlight the same old process y…

‘nids part 252 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.7 – Chitin highlights on the tail and 2nd half of the body

Posted on May 2nd, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I managed to get really focused to complete the final 19 chitin plates on the tail of the Hierophant. I honestly didn’t think I’d do it but perseverance will out! It also helps they get progressively smaller as they go down the tail ;)Vents also got do…

‘nids part 249 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.6 – Chitin highlights on the body

Posted on April 25th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

You’re all going to have to bear with me at the moment, chitin highlights seems to be a theme to these posts but unfortunately there’s no getting away form it. As a record of progress it’s helpful but I appreciate it’s not a captivating update. However…

‘nids part 248 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.5 – Chitin highlights again

Posted on April 20th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

Apologies but this is going to appear a little tedious for a while as I fill in all these chitin bits. The top leg is complete [as may have already been said in the last post, it’s all a blur]. But the bottom leg has one side done.The other side has ju…

‘nids part 247 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.4 – Chitin highlights

Posted on April 16th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

If you recall in the last Armiger post I reached a hurdle with the metallics and promptly shifted to the Hierophant. Alongside my Razorback [shading] these three projects all have elements that are far from unpleasant but they always retard my progress…

‘nids part 246 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.3 – washes done

Posted on April 4th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I’m sure I had a pet name for this at one stage but I can’t remember what it was, it might have been Brenda, for reasons but I felt in the world of binary genders it was actually he-titan. I don’t know so much now.I don’t want to be taking too many of …

‘nids part 245 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.2 – washes

Posted on March 30th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I think I may have been a little optimistic about this as even the simple things seem to be taking a bit longer than I imagined. The washes in particular are time consuming as I need to allow certain parts to dry before I paint the remainder. The last …

‘nids part 244 – Biotitan Tyranid Hierophant pt.1

Posted on March 26th, 2018 under , , , , . Posted by

I don’t know if I’m deluding myself but right now this beast seems really easy to do. I started with the bio-cannons. I think that was just half an hour’s work to get the Bonewhite on the arms. Then I did the legs. I am actually going to note down the …

‘nids part 243 – The Biggest Build – TO DONE!

I’m just going to leave this here, it’s been a long time coming and no doubt a lot to look forward to when I start laying down some paint.So I get the Big Build Big Gamboge Stamp of Approval.And in case you wanted to see it in primed condition.Don’t wo…
