I think we can all agree with the above picture. You get to the end of one project and its easier and easier to get distracted into other projects and other things you want to work on. And Deathwatch overkill came at just the right time to distract me further after the cultists of last.
Tyranids were technically my first army. Back before 2004 with the 4th edition codex I still have. I liked the idea of the unrelenting monsters and still do. I painted them Kraken because thats what on the front cover but Id always looked more fondly at the ice blues, high contrasting colours of the fleets. I painted a few, wasnt playing the game and left shortly thereafter, having my stuff sold off.
