New Space Wolves and Tyranid Models

These great pictures are from Warseer and also at Faet 212 
He has listings of prices and everything. 

Wow. these pics are great.  Love the models.  I have been itching to bring the space wolves and Tyranids out of the closet, and now it looks like I have a reason to.  That Tervigon is Massive!Check out how big he is next to that Trygon!  Awesome.

The Tyrant looks a lot like the last one.  Now I don't have to throw away my Swarmlord.  Don't think I will buy this guy, unless I need another Tyrant.

 This is what I would like my Space Wolf army to look like.  Lots of wild wolves running amidst the power armored vikings.  I think Arjac is the guy with the round shield and little gold anvil on top of his armor, standing right under the Swarmlord, or Seniore of the swarm.  There is the cyberwolf right in front.
This guy looks great too.  "Say hello to my little friend."
Great looking wolves.  I like the large upper bodies and thinner waists.  They look very wolfy and not so much like a giant squirrel.  I like the servo leg.  Need 6 of them.
Fenrisian wolves rock!  No more chaos warhound wannabees.
I almost like this gun better.Is that a third gun on the upper small picture? 
Harpy looks great too(Actually is the winged hive tyrant).  Not too big, not too small. The only problem I have with the model is, where are the other two weapon arms supposed to go?  The wings are in the upper arm spots, leaving nowhere to put his other weapons.  WTH  (What the Heck, for us non-swearers) 
This momma rocks too!  I love the curved back, looks a lot like the forge world monstrosity.  Need one or two more of these. Should be Mamasita of the swarm.

Dark Eldar Grotesques WIP part two

Here are some shots of how I made the backpacks.

First, I got some cheap nails from Home Depot, cut the heads off for magnetizing something, and use the nail for pinning.

 Here is the Grotesque with a greenstuffed head, and two nails in his back for support of the backpack.  This is so that it doesn't fall off.  I could just see myself building and painting these suckers up, and then one fall off of the table, and the backpack would drop off.  So the nail will stop that.

Next I built up hot glue around the nails.  This will later be covered with green stuff for shaping and painting.

 This guy's backpack is all greenstuff.  I took the hook out of his right hand and gave him another tentacle. I added some parts off of a gargoyle, smaller fish hook with blood angel head, and adjusted his stance to make him more level.

 I traded his sword for an axe made from a raider rudder.  I think it looks a little more brutal, and less sophisticated.

More hooks and chains.

 This guy actually has a sweet shield instead of the spear since I took this picture.

I made a vow to myself to not take anymore sloppy pictures.  My new background is a printout from an internet picture of a backdrop.  Now I just need to find where to get a real, cloth backdrop for some good pics.  A tripod really helps too.
