Really nice Angelwing!

Those things must be something to face on the battlefield. The colors, like the rest of your nid force, really stand out.
Beautiful paint job. Just great all around.

I haven't tried them out yet, but I fear the malaceptor won't be too good. It looks okay on paper, but when you read between the lines you realise how bad it is. A real pity because I really like the model. The toxicrene is decent without being over the top which is pleasing. If it has a fault, its that the model is a bit impractical for gaming!
The rest of the new releases will follow in due course.

Galeforce 9 battlefield in a box toxic pools.
These come prepainted, but its only a bit of brown drybrushing on the rims. I repainted that with the greys to fit my gaming board. I also added some subtle colours to the bubbles to make them stand out a bit more. These could be repainted in all sorts of colours, from clear pond to hot mud to swamp to chem pits to lava. They are quite sturdy too. I recommend them, and if you do buy, give Gav a buzz at gaming figures!

Tyranid tyrannocyte drop pod. I've photographed it with the deathspitters, but I have all weapon options painted up and mounted on pins for easy swapping.
Pros: looks good, get extra spore mines in kit, big enough to actually transport what it says it can.
Cons: fiddly kit, too many unnecessary bits ( a slight redesign would eliminate at least 40 bits and many seam lines), ugly seam lines, hard to store and transport, easy to catch your sleeve on mid game, too fragile, not enough bits to complete the muclid spore as well.

I want to like this kit, but I can't. With a bit more thought into its design, this could have been so much better.
