Hive Behemoth Carnifex *ShowCase No8*

So lately Ive been painting a lot of space marines, especially Ultramarines. I guess they will always be popular lol. So just to make a little change Ive decided to go and paint a Tyranid. And since i went online with the website, flickr and twitter some of my friends suggested to me that I should show off my painting skills by painting something more organic. So following that advice I did this bad boy! I really wanted to do a custom and unknown paint scheme but I’m always stuck when it comes to that. I don’t have a tyranid army so i need to paint colors representing models that people might want to buy. I chose the hive fleet behemoth as the color scheme because i really like working with reds. Also I think the contrast between the red and black and blue is quite nice. So here it is!

I also went a little crazy on this base! I wanted to have fun so why not depict a Space marine decapitated and gutted by this beast. I used cork to make the rock and then used some spare bits to make the gore. I did the entrails using green stuff.
