Flying Eyeballs!

In between working on my Tyranids, I thought a would take a break and paint up something quick. I have had these little guys for a few years now. I don't recall the manufacturer or where I even got them.  But what the hey, the are Flying Eyeballs which are pretty damn cool in my book.

[edit 5/9/12] I just found out these are called Gotongi Demons and are part of the Das Schwarze Auge line by Ral Partha Europe. That is all.
A Flock (?) of Flying Eyeballs!
 So I have eight of these things in total. Now that I have them painted I guess I will have to make up some D&D / Pathfinder stats for them. It seems like a no-brainer to give them some kind of gaze attack.  If you have any ideas for game stats, post a comment!

Tyranids 1,500 Point Army List

So this Saturday I have a Warhammer 40K game planned against my friend Nick, from Little Nicky's Gameroom. I will be playing Tyranids and Nick will be playing his Dark Eldar. This will be my first game of 40K in about an year and only about my 5th or 6th game with the Tyranids. So I hope to have fun and test out the rules for some of my new units like the Tervigon and the Parasite of Mortrex.

where is my training montage music?

March Poll Results

So during the month of march I ran a poll asking about what brand of paint people prefer. Below are the results.

What brand of paint do you prefer?

Seems like the results may change a bit since GW just released their new line of paints today, but let's review anyway.

The Citadel/GW line seems to be the most popular through a combination of paint quality and corporate brainwashing (call it advertising if you like)!

Vallejo also as a good following, although I expected the percentage to be higher.

Another popular choice is mixing and matching paints from various brands. 

The biggest surprise to me is the low number on the Reaper paints. I am actually switching to use Reaper as my primary brand although I still have a bunch of Citadel and P3 paints that I will use until they are gone.  I'm sure I will be picking up a few of the new Citadel line to try them out as well.

Tyranids: Infected Guardsmen WIP

So I have been working on my Tyranids lately and came up with this bit of fun. Obviously inspired by the Alien movies, I made up some infected guardsmen. The adrenal gland bit makes me think of an Alien Facehugger every time I look at it so I decided to go ahead and convert a squad of Catachans to be my infected guardsmen.

I converted a squad of 10 to start with. I think I may do some more after I see how they look painted.
