I had been practicing a 2250 list for a while since the Gamers Sanctuary tournament in April was a 2250 tourney. For fun, I built a list with three tyrannofexes and three tervigons. I figured out that I think it works pretty well, especially with venomthropes to give some cover and defensive grenades etc. I had never really been a fan of tyrannofexes, but if you use enough of them they can be effective.
I have one more tyrannofex to paint. You'll notice one tervigon is much darker. I can't say this was planned - I bought what I thought was my normal dip but it definitely wasn't, so she ended up super dark. I think this will work to my advantage, though - sometimes you take an HQ tervigon. She'll be my HQ one, as clearly she is much older.
The tervigons. I may end up painting some green dots in the front arms of the lighter dipped ones. These arms are not tervigon arms - they're the tyrannofex fleshborer hive arms - however they just looked too damn cool to not use somewhere. The baby bags are Genestealer Purple. I've seen some images on the net of the babies being all bloody or fluid green or whatever. I really like that idea - it is gross and tyraniddy - but it didn't really fit my painting style. Instead I wanted them to be looking like they were going right into action and have them be a focal point of the model.
I really like how these models turned out and look forward to using them in the near future. Check back with Fresh Coast 40k in May for our thoughts on what should be in 6th Edition as well as the buildup for the Great Lakes Team Challenge on May 19th.
