Good Morning Everyone,
I'm a brand new 40k hobbyist, with a "go big or go home" mentality (I just started playing and already have enough models to play Apocalypse games!
), so I decided to dive right in and enter what will be my first attempt at a painted work. Well, second attempt; I've partially painted a Blood Angels Combat Squad, but put it on hold to do this contest instead.
After brainstorming for what seemed like forever, I've settled on a small diorama depicting a member of the Death Company facing off against (and, presumably, being slaughtered by) a swarm of Tyranid Hormagaunts. The "grim dark", hopeless mood of 40k was one of the biggest draws for me, so I'm really hoping I can successfully capture that feeling in my work.
