Tyranid Commission - Pic Heavy

I've started accepting commissions for miniature painting.

A case of being at the right place at the right time saw a whole load of minis coming my way.

This was an army commission initially comprising:

1x Tervigon
1x Carnifex
1x Hive Crone
1x Harpy
40x Termagants
40x Hormagaunts
5x Ripper Swarms
3x Hive Guard

This was the original paint scheme the client wanted.
 Having received the boxes from my client, over the course of the next 2-3 days I proceeded to assemble and prep all the minis.

Went for the classic 'screamer killer' look.

Hive Guard

 Phew! All assembled, next - priming.

Primed and ready for paint.
I quickly painted up a test mini and sent a pic to the client for approval and I was good to go!

The next few weeks would be a blur of painting. My recipe:
Skin - Warpfiend Grey thinned with Lahmian Medium. Shading wash with thinned Druchii Violet. All over glaze with Gulliman Blue.
Carapace - Base Rhinox Hide, drybrushed successively with Trollslayer Orange, Averland Sunset, striations with Rakarth Flesh.
Weapon casings, primary claws - Temple Guard Blue drybrushed with Skink Blue.
Based with sand and small pieces of slate, overbrush with Temple Guard Blue and Ceramite White, flocked with Snow.

Here are a few WIP pics.

 Decided to build the Tervigon and enter it into Hobby Forge's March Monster Madness too.
