I finally completed painting apostle of pies Tyranid Hive Tyrant last night so I took it outside to give it a coat of purity seal. It was my intention to give it a fighting chance of holding some level of detail whilst used on the gaming table.
However, post coating of matt varnish, one freak gust of wind, a short drop with a sudden stop later all I had left to show for my time was a pile of smashed, scratched, and chipped pieces.
Due to the level of conversion work undertaken upon this mini had left it susceptible to shattering.
A lesson learned here is to pin pin pin boys and girls or more importantly next time convert a Carnifex into a Hive Tyrant using the wonderful, bouncier plastic kit.
After a sleepless night, haunted by the traumatic event playing over and over again in my mind I have managed to assemble the mini back to its previous glory but now need to complete the soul destroying task of touching up and in some cases stripping back to bare metal.
For now please enjoy this silhouette and I’ll try and upload some photos of the completed mini over the weekend.
Ciao for now,
