SHOWCASE: Tyranid Exocrine

The monster mash continues unabated with a small gallery of my Exocrine!

Sorry for the delay in the post today. I had the chance to get a game in with Deet, and with the kid coming next month, I wanted to take advantage while I still had some measure of free time.

I completed this exocrine shortly after my haruspex in february, but never got around to photographing it until now. It's a bit of a cheat, as the model is simply a magnetization swap - but really, I run it as an exocrine in the living artillery node formation 99% of the time.

It was a fun kit to assemble and paint, and I'm thankful that it was easy to magnetize, allowing use of both creatures. Most of my bio-weapons are grey with green for poison, but I couldn't bring myself to paint a large grey cannon on the front of this thing - it needed something that popped! So I used a fleshtone blended into my poison green to make it stand out.

Have you painted an exocrine? Prefer the haruspex? tell us why in the comments below.

    2. And lo, our comments section was a barren and rocky place, in which few dared venture.
