Have I misspelled it somewhere? .. no it should be right ... hmm I don't see what your question is ... if there is one.
(English is not my native language so probably that's why I dont get it :) )

Leviathan is one of the major Hive Fleets in WH40k like Behemoth and Kraken, this colouring is for Leviathan (Behemoth being red/blue and Kraken being bone/red instead of this white/purple)

I see what you mean - but I know Leviathan. And this isnīt meant to look like a swarmlord going out for a club/disco taking drugs. Oo
Not enough..he looks like you painted him with luminous paint Oo

Just google it, this hive fleet colours you painted is definetly NOT leviathan.

Ahh I see now.

Actually the printer painted it I just assembled but I take your point.

I used DoW2 model and base textures for making the template but DoW2 uses greyscale textures and shaders to color it. I'm by no means a pro at image manipulation so yeah I guess the colors are off a bit, I also don't have painter class color sense (one of the reasons I don't paint my models)

So please interpret the (Hive Fleet Leviathan) as (Hive Fleet Leviathan*)  ... *It's intended to b.

im mounting this model too, but in photo paper glossy of 180 gm, i like the glossy finish. I love warhammer world and your tyranid model is awesome , can you work in a model of the carnifex?

I could ... but I won't sorry. It does not look different enough from the SwarmLord.

Its a basic human shape with some extras, If I'd make something Eldar it would be one of their walkers like WarWalkers or WraithLorg/Guard. But i still dont intend to make anything 40k for a while, and I'd probably make a Tau Pathfinder with a Drone and rail rifle.
