Good morning crafters!
Last weekend we went back (after a very long absence) to our local Games Workshop hobby shop: The Hall of the Great Wolf. Seeing all those models made me want to play again and especially to continue painting my armies! Luckily, next Saturday, there is an Armies on Parade competition held at the hobby shop. We have to bring a board and an army, all painted and looking nice. You probably don’t remember but a few months ago I was working on this guy, a volcano board. Since, I’ve added some lava (which I need to finish before next Saturday) and I also want to add some details (including some moss and eggs).
Eggs? What eggs? I have decided to display my Tyranids army, so they will be Tyranids eggs. Tyranids are monster looking creatures that all form a collective entity, can share thoughts instantly through “synapse” (psychic) communication and have for only goal to feed on all bio-matter they can find, reproduce and advance through the universe.
Overall, I just think they look great and they are fun to play with, which is why I chose them. Also, the colour scheme I chose for them is bone and blue, which I think will look nice on a volcanic terrain.
Hive Tyrant – He is the leader of the army
Termagaunts – basic soldiers, good at shooting
Genestealer – sneaky, with rending claws (can go through his opponents armour)
Hormagaunts – basic soldiers like the termagaunts, but they are a combat unit rather than a shooting unit
Now before next Saturday, I just need to finish a few other models and to finish the lava effect on the board and I’ll be ready to enter in the Armies of Parade comp!
Crochet-wise, I was trying to reduce my stash a little and I found this really cute pattern on yarspirations website to crochet tropical fish dishcloths. I changed the pattern slightly to make a rainbow fish!
I hope you guys had an amazing weekend!
