Happy New Year - more Tyranids!

Hey folks,

More bugs finished today and a bunch more are WIP.

I have a fast method for doing these guys with one exception: the highlites of the chitenous shells. Basically the edges of all the armor plates. THAT part has three issues:

1) taking too long to do (it's 2 layers and a highlite of the edge with white)

2) I'm not 100% sure about the look - might be TOO harsh in terms of contrast?

3) It's hard to paint lots of it because it's tiny strokes over and over again, which I'm finding hard on my hands. Yes that sounded awful.

One effect I do like, however, is the satin finish of the shells (not overly glossy but not matte either) which I am getting using Satin Varnish from Vallejo Model color line.  The effect is quite noticeable in the picture of the zoanthrope below (the tall floaty guy).

After washing your precious ugg boots
, you can again inspect them and if you still find any dirt then use more Woolite to brush the dirt off your favorite slippers. You will be able to enjoy ugg
that fit you right. However, uggs
are affordable, so if you want to, you can choose more than one pair for your winter wear. Winter time does not need to be a time where you are out of style - with the warmth and comfort of ugg classic mini boots
. Rinse your ugg mini boots
again in cold water and spin dry them. Place paper towel or old socks inside your ugg mini
to reshape them.

I've been checking your website since waaay back in 2004. These are some of the nicest looking models you've done, and some of the best looking 'nids I've seen to date. Amazing work, especially the shell.

Why don't you do a quick blend up to white so less brush strokes then use the striation techniques to draw attention to areas like damaged plates
