That box set of plastic miniatures was my first step into the miniature gaming hobby. And I've just now finally gotten around to painting those Tyranid Warriors. Here are some pictures of the results.
And here is the whole unit of 6 together. Unfortunately, I couldn't find all 6 of the Deathspitters, so two of these guys have the ones from the new plastic Tyranid Warriors. I have no idea what could have happened to the two original Deathspitters from these models. But the new set of arms actually looks fine on the older models, I just don't like that it isn't consistent throughout the unit.
Yes, these really old plastic models may look a little ugly compared with the more recent plastic set, but they do have some sentimental value. And I just like using all the old models from my collection that I've played so many memorable games with. So I'm looking forward to fielding these Tyranid Warriors again, as I did in my very first game all those years ago. Except this time they'll be painted!
