Then on to some painting. On the left, one coat of diluted VGA Dark Green, with a second coat on the right.

Last week I managed a huge batch of undercoating.

Image

Image

Image


Then 'I'll just put a bit of green wash on the Cthulhu Trygon proxies...' turned into 'Oh, OK, they're done.'. :P

Then it was time for lots and lots of green...

Image

Image


And bone, and pink and...

Image

Image

Image


I'm quite pleased with the Mycetic Spore drop pod.

Image


And even more pleased with the Malefactor proxies.

Then, this evening, I drybrushed and weathered the assorted bits of ruins on different bases.

Image

Image

Image

Image


And then did some more bases, so that the Zoanthropes would be finished.

Really stunning Gargoyles - especially as white is so hard to paint.

Thanks all! The white is a bit of a cheat, that's effectively the pre-shaded undercoat without colour glazes added over the top!

P.S. No Nids were cooked during the creation of this army.

MOAR STUFF!

Three forumware Carnifexes, the 'Familiar' Broodlord, and the second Harridan who's been sitting there undercoated for ages.

And a group shot of the airborne attack wing. Harridans, Gargoyles and Harpies.

Today I concentrated on finishing touches.

First is the Ravenwing Land Speeder that forms the base of one of the first set of Gargoyles, this was just black, with the Heavy Plasma Gun left white, so has had:
White on the Bolters, followed by red.
Red on the HPG, then Contrast blue for the coils.
Some minor highlighting on the crew, plus dark green right shoulder pads.

Image

Image

Image


Then it was the turn of the Harridan and some Hierodules.

Image


The Barbed Hierodule's gun has been finished off, with green on the mini-carapace, and eye and a claw.

Image


The Harridan's wing membranes got some 'brown-lining' around the edges with Agrax Earthshade as they were blending in too much with the white fingers, plus the rocky outcrops on the base got done.

Image

Image


Finally, the Scythed Hierodule's plaything/lunch got painted, mostly with Contrast paints apart from the blacks and Bolt Pistol. I'm particularly pleased with how he came out, he's roughly in Blood Angel colours, for variety.

Image

The Space Marine in daylight.

Image


And finally I'm back to the smaller of the Bio-Titans, based on a 40k Carnifex.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

That't the first coat of green on the rest of the carapace areas. Now to rest my eyes...

The green is contrast? I have a feeling it's going to be a boon for 'Nid beasties. Like the kitbashing (as always)

Thanks! No, the green is Vallejo Model Air Dark Green, slightly watered down and applied with a soft brush to try and exclude brush marks. But yes, in general Contrast is great for Nid monsters and similar stuff.

Update!

First, a size comparison between the old Screamer Killer model and the forumware Carnifexes.

Image


Then the second coat of VMA Dark Green on the carapace areas.
