Back in the Synapse Again

Last night I took all my Tyranids out and took inventory. The shiny new Space Marine codex distracted me from the Hive, but now I return. The image shown is the only guy who's fully painted. I have a good number of them either base-coasted or just primed.

Here's my 1500pt list which I'll later color-code in the Cawshis style:

Hive Tyrant - 186
[Talons, Toxin Sacs, Winged, Warpfield, Ad. Glands (+WS), Flesh Hooks]

6 Tyranid Warriors - 199
[talons, extended carapace, toxin sacs, barbed strangler, 5 x deathspitter]

8 Genestealers - 160
[feeder tendrils, scuttlers, flesh hooks]

18 Termagaunts - 108

18 Termagaunts - 108

15 Hormagaunts - 180
[toxin sacs]

Fast Attack
3 Sporemine - 45

3 Sporemine - 45

Heavy Support
Carnifex - 163
[Barbed Strangler, Venom Cannon, Enhanced Senses, Reinforced Chitin]

Carnifex - 128
[Barbed Strangler, Scything Talons, Reinforced Chitin]

3 Zoans - 165
[Synapse, Psychic Scream ]

I was worried when I switched over to Space Marines that I would only end up with 2 half-painted armies, but with over 1500pt of Marines done -- I feel very confident that this army will come together easily.

Just a note, Stealers cannot have both feeder tendrils and flesh hooks at the same time and the whole brood must be equipped identically.

That's right - it's been a while that I forgot that it was a head option, not a chest add-on like with the Warriors, Tyrant and Fex. Thanks!

Only one painted? Well... I guess that leaves you open to choose a different color scheme if you want. :P

It's good to focus on one army at a time I think.

He was my test subject.

Somewhere along the line I decided I liked to paint my entire army at the same time: assembly-line style. So, I was busy base-coating my entire army, rather than finishing one squad and then moving on. That way I could play with an army while I was painting it.

You still going with the bone/green scheme? I recall you thinking of trying something different?
