Hey hives!

Been a very long time since i posted here :) My hive fleet was almost destroyed by the Heru'hur necrons dinasty ( my future necron army haaaaaan).
But the last hive tyrant managed to send the last bioship to the Arranis Prime solar system. On the 7th planet the ship crashed and only the tyrant and a few gaunts and genestealers survived.
The local inhabitants were spider like creatures called the rachniis. After two months of ruthless battles against the remnants of hive fleet Oraknia grew in numbers as Rachniis were slaughtered and assimilated in vast assimilation pools which permitted new hive ships to emerge and conquer the rest of the system devouring 5 other fertile worlds.

Now that new born hive fleet Arrania has emerged from the remnants of an ancient unexplored world ( or did the Eldar noticed?) the hive tyrant oversees preparation for a massive onslaught on this star cluster.

After two years hive fleet Arrania reached the koralian system held by the Tau. Aware of the tau's firepower due to collective mind, the hive tyrant commands the spawning pools to create bigger and new organisms to conquer the helpless Tau cast of Xel'ha.

Hi there,

nice little fluff you got there. Was the name of the Tau world inspired by the mayas on yucatan?
i remember a place in the jungle that i visited too long ago, that hat the same name...

Your painting is great, i like those little white spots all over the carapace.

And this Tervigonhead is awesome too.

So far there is nothing to complain :D
Keep posting your stuff

Man your painting is amazing- I love that scheme! It's so vivid and yet still natural- love the sporting on the carapace especially. The conversion looks fantastic as well- brilliant stuff!
