It Came From The Forum's: Chrono's Hive Fleet Absolution

 Old School here to take a look at the amazing tyranid conversions and paintjobs fro Chrono at The Warhammer Forum in this edition of It Came From The Forums! First up is the Swarmlord. What can I say about it ... it is just incredible in terms of paint effects and the overall impression of the model. Chrono's Hive Fleet Absolution has one awesome looking swarlord to marshal the hordes into battle, but that's not all, let's take a look at Chrono's Tervigons ...

 Here is the first Tervigon from Chrono's nids. I have been critical of the "back hatcher" style tervigons in the past, but the work in the plating and the look of the egg sacks is all top notch conversion work, so I won't be critical in this case or in the next case ...
 ... baby got back! This is a rear shot of Chrono's second tervigon and while it is striking enough to see the first time, take a second look at the skulls painted into the sacs.

 -seriously, who paints gaunts to this standard? Madness!

 A hive guard conversion that I actually like. they look good and while I have my own Hive Guard already, I think I may steal this idea for my tyrant guard.

so if you like what you see here, go check out Chrono's thread at The Warhammer Forum and since this is an active thread, drop him a line of encouragement!

  1. Wow! I agree about the hive guard especially. That's a good approach.

  2. that is a solid army there, the paint job is just awsome. nice and easy ^^

  3. I wish I could paint like that. The tervigon also impresses me, am I right in assuming he used the abdomens of forest-goblin spiders for the egg sacs?

  4. Hmmm, I don't know, goobles, but now that I look at them, it appears so. I didn't even think that the skulls could have been a part of an already existing model.
