Could you take pics without the Flash on, the stuff would look nicer without the distortion of the flash. Looks good tho.

Cheers

Thank you all for the nice responses. I compiled a tutorial, and uploaded an article on Dakka. I will do another tutorial here on Warpshadow. This is after all the true home of the Tyranid.

I Solemnly swear: To infest my local tabletops with Tyranid spires, To blot out the sun with clouds of spores.

Here are some scale reference shots taken in sunlight.

Wow, the tutorial is great! One thing though, it may seem very immature to point this out:
Quote:
It is important to practice how to shoot your sticky load.

You may want to check your wording a bit, just in case anyone takes it the wrong way... Also, I apologize if you are not a native English speaker, because that would just be a bit harsh.

But anyways, the towers look very "alive", unlike FW's towers. And you save a fortune, too! (b~_^)b

Really nice, it looks so alive.
If I ever get around to making Mycetic Spores I'll probably try this out.

I was indeed trying to be funny, hope I didn't offend anyone :) . Thank you for the compliments everyone.

I am thinking of making a few quick Mycetic Spores as well using this method. Something that will look reasonably decent and quick to make, but will serve as proxies for gaming until something else can be cobbled together.

Thank You
