Unneded!! The new Tyranid models and rules have been needed since the release of the Tyranid codex. The drop pod for example is essential and will now make Tyranids a top tier army choice.
Garfy, which of these colour scheme do you think is the quickest to paint?
Hive Fleet Kraken is probably the easiest. My top tip is don't use GW white primer. It's a rough chalky undercoat that spoils models. Invest in Vallejo Surface primer white and blast it through an airbrush. Way way cheaper. At £10 a can for gw spray, the vallejo bottle will soon pay for itself and the airbrush and the compressor. It lasts forever if you thin it with Tamiya thinners.
