Tyranid Tervigon by DaOldHorse Tyranid Tervigon by DaOldHorse
Games Workshop´s Tyranid Tervigon model for Warhammer 40k tabletop wargame.

This is the biggest model I paited. Mostly I paited with one tone of color few hours a day. The forelegs are magnetized and can be swapped for claws. I glued some adrenal glands and toxin sacs from other tyranid sprues to the body.

Painted with acrylic colors and varnished. Base decorated with hematite sand, vermiculite crystals and Herkule glue (I shoul use another gle, this one has a milky tone when applied in thicker layer) and also Tyranid Rippers (really like those models, but almost all units in the game more usefull).

Thank you. When I was deciding for my 40K army, firstly I didn´t like tyranids much because of the white skin (well some like the pait scheme some not) on the pictures in rulebook. Then I decidet to made up my own paint scheme for the skin, inspired a bit by the predator from film. Chitin plates I made simmilar to hive flet Behemoth.
And I am not a professinal, I paint miniature just for 4 years and trying to do my best.

Bloody sir, are a god. Your miniatures are absolutely incredible. You must be a commission painter? Everything you paint is outrageously good. Wow, wow & wow once more

I am glad you like my miniatures so much. But there are many far better painters than me. When I looked at some miniature in Cool mini or not, I just stared with open mouth. I paint miniatures just for 4 years. For commission I painted just one tyranid venomtrope 2 years ago.
