Spent some time building the new Tyrannoctye kit. Man this kit is one very troublesome kit with many repetitive elements.

I decided to magnetize all the weapon symbiotes and some of the tentacles for easy transportation.

All the same weapons. You will need to trim the connection flat to affix the magnet

Squid anyone? You can spot a few of flattened tips

Completed model. Took me 4 hours

Used the extra tentacles to build a Mucolid

Based the Tyrannocyte 

Hit the other 3 models with White Primer

And used Black on their carapace

Played a game with the Tyrannocytes

Skin is still WIP. I need to even out the wash but the bruised effect is really nice.
Spent quite a bit of time working on the skin. Starting with the base of Aged White (Vallejo), I washed it down with a diluted Carroburg Crimson. I then work the skin back up to Aged White using a wet brush method, picking out the raised areas and leaving the recesses purple. This gave the model the bruised effect. I then mixed Bleached Bone with some White and wet brush more precisely the raised bony ridges on the model. I then went back to the recessed areas with a Size 1 brush and hit the deepest recesses with the Carroburg Crimson. With this, I am done with the skin. 
If you look at the photo above, you can spot the 3 stages of the work in progress. The left most has just received its Aged White base coat while the one in the middle has just received the wet brush method. The one on the far right has the recesses re-shaded with Carroburg Crimson to restablish the depth.

Spent some time doing the chitin and worked in some purple streaks. Tidied up the viens and tentacles. Started working in the wash for the third Tyrannocyte. 
I have of course finished them awhile ago and forgot to put this post up! Enjoy!
