Love the blending Krewl! I also love the tail of the parasite. The only thing I would change would be to add a longer rod for the parasite.

Yeah, defiantly needs a longer clear rod, but that's all I had.

I like 'em KrewL. I can see why you may want a longer flight stand, but I think the current one works quite well. She looks like a giant tyranid version of a Tzeencthian screamer. :wink:

I don't think yelling will make Tzeentch stop, really. You just need to win a lot with your parasite now, then the god may be pleased...

Also, nice blending on the tentacles of your venomthropes.

Change for the Change GOD! Awesome toxic squids Venomthropes. Your scheme is one of my favorites.

By the way, I'm thinking of making a Thousand Sons army sometime.

Lookin' good KrewL. That is a mighty impressive swarm you've built up.

And I know you've shown them before, but I really quite like your tyranid primes. The beefy horns on the front of their heads look brilliant. :)

Wooo thread dust off

I think I nailed the lightbox lighting. Light enough to show everything yet not make the white look like utter crap. Oddly, I like the shadows. If I had lights on the sides, those shadows would probaly be eliminated.

My aunt gave me her old drafting desk lamp. Sadly, I think the bulb in that old lamp started to poop on me. So I had to scrap a bunch of photos. Only the Tervigon and Tfex turned out decent.

I really hope I can find a replacement bulb for it.
