Hey all 🙂 You may be thinking what is this with just a undercoat, but
to me it’s quite important as this is a no longer produced Tyranid
miniature from Forge World that I finally got my hands on. I have been
looking for this model for a long time on Ebay and won him in a auction
for £25 which I was really happy with as originally he was selling for a
lot more. The model is important to me as many years ago I wanted to
buy him when he was up on Forge World’s site and when I eventually went
to make the order he had been removed. Which I think is a shame as the
model itself is gorgeous. I should have another post up in the next few
days of the finished results or would you want me to put up some WIP
posts?. Anyone else ever went to purchase a GW or FW model and found
that it no longer exists?
You could totally convert something to look just like that! hehe it is a gorgeous model though. If ever I started 40k back up I'd totally go tyranids again (played them when I was 13)
Can't wait to see you get some paint on it.
I'm looking forward to it:)
I went to buy the Eldar Ranger Inquistor model when the news broke that they were no longer being produced. It went out of stock literally as I clicked the buy button.
Yeah, a lot of their Kroot models went byebye, which I think is really sad. The models are great. It's the rules that killed them. Shame.
Love to see some of your WIP stuff (or even a tutorial video! hint hint :P)
Yes please! Have one myself not yet assembled so would love some pointers as I don't want to mess it up!

I'd love to see some WIP posts. I've been trying to get one of these, or any older Hive Tyrant model, myself, but with no such luck.
And with how long Tyranid Shrike wings have been out of stock, they might as well not exist.
