Splinter Fleet Colossus grows! I'm nearly finished with an ungodly amount of genestealers. These guys have taken me weeks, but I'm very pleased with the end result (well almost, bases will get finished next week). I tried my hand for the first time at OSL (object source lighting) on their eyes to make them glow. What do you think?
I've also been chipping away at my warrior squad and have nearly finished my second prime with boneswords and a warrior with barbed strangler. These guys were drybrushed red as a wave to the original tyranid warrior color scheme back in 2nd ed, just as the genestealers above were drybrushed purple.
I also knocked out a couple raveners to test a metallic green drybrushing over the black skin areas.
My ATC army is starting to look finished. I need to get 3 color min. on my spawnable gaunts and then base everything. I'm thinking 2 weeks is enough if I give up some sleep here and there. I also picked up a battlefoam travel display board as my home made one is very cumbersome. I'll put some picks of the finished ATC army up when we hit the road to Tennessee. Until then, I've got some army profiles in the works from readers and celebrities (hehe).
