i wanted to ask one question: did these monsters connect with Necrons somehow?

Very nice coloration.
Personally my favorite bit is the glow of the eyes. Very well done all around.

Thats really good, like the colours,
i'd say its a termagaunt becuase of the small weapon in its front arms, its got a hollow tube so it looks like fleshborer, although it could be something else

Anyone ever questions what type of Gant that is in the bottom left corner? To me its either one well feed Gant, or it looks more like a prime version of a Gant.

I was actually pretty surprised this wasn't the 5e codex cover since the picture was only a few pages in. It looks way better than the current cover IMO and adds a bit of homage to the 3e cover art.

I looked up 3E and your quite right, interesting similarities!

Y'know in a differential perspective( :o ) The Tyranids are in the flipside of the Necrons!

Necrons as a theme, are slaves to cold, immovable, emotionlessness of the physical world (ie scientific materialism) through machines!

Tyranids on the other side are the same theme except through the organic! In that all diversity of life through form is such as required to fulfill a specific role or function.

Or to put it simply, Necrons are solid. Tyranids are liquid. Chaos is gaseous :fart:
