Looks proper.

What's your recipe, out of interest?

Re: Assembling the genestealer cult - 1 genestealer painted

I have a bit of an eccentric way of painting so not sure if this fecipie is very useful, but it was something like this.

Light grey/white zenithal priming. MP imperial purple mixed with a little Valejo flat fleshtone for the purple bits. MP mid blue mixed with a little Vallejo deep sky blue for the caraopace. Several thin layers for the basecoats. The face is various combinations of purple and lighter fleshtone, I painted the whole face first with retarder medium then mixed the colours on the fae until i was happy. Washed lightly with coloured ink. Blacklined a little with thin black ink. Highlight the purple adding Vallejo "magenta fluo". Highlights on the blue adding deep sky blue and then adding some white, blending carefully and adding glaze of the base colour. This gives a shiny look whilst still looking natural lighting. I did the claws quite badly, need to figre out a better way to do them. The final step is to take crap photos.

Re: Assembling the genestealer cult - eyeball mutant painted

Thanks folks. Not much progress today. I sat down to work on hybrids but ended up making an imperial guard orderly instead. Fishstealer patriarch will get some paint soon hopefully. Might start him tomorrow. I think i need some more colour variation c.f. the test purestrain. maybe some greys and turquoise in the carapace colour...
