WIP Old School Tyrannid Hunters




Painting the original whirlwind and razorback gave me an itch to paint more old models from my collection. What you see here are three metal veterans, and four metal Ultramarine tyrannic war veterans. I love how characterful these old models are. However, they are absurdly small compared to Primaris marines. I'm not sure a force would look reasonable with both types of model. Anyone else on an old-hammer kick?

  1. No unfortunately, I'm pretty much sold on Primaris at this point. Plus I don't have any Oldhammer (which helps). These are lovely models though, well played sir!

  2. Lovely job on the figs. Yes, I've gone completely retro on the figs and rules, revisiting games of 30 years ago.

  3. These would look great on 32mm bases, or add adapters to those bases, TTAdapters are great. Nice old school Tyrannic Veterans!

    1. I was planning on using 25 mm bases. You think I need to upgrade? These guys are pretty small.

    2. If playing with them, 32mm. Otherwise whatever you want!

    3. I went with 32 because I had some ready to go. The larger base size really helps.

  4. I've been buying up the old metal 40k orks from ebay. Got 6 metal killa kans, a big choppa warboss, and some metal tank bustas. Nothing ancient ancient, but still going a bit old school.
