'nids part 156 - The Spawn of Cryptus/Malanthrope

Gosh, this seems agaes ago now. Thanks to not writing the text to go with these the Spawn is now finished but here he is in all his basecoat glory.


It's amazing how quick he went together, essentially it's like painting just one Genestealer, even though he's actually twice the size of his broodkin. I was reminded how much I dislike painting them but only in a 'oh yeah I recall it being a chore' without actually feeling like it was, because there was only one. I'm sure when I get around to the 31 currently littering my workspace I'll revisit that feeling with a passion.


Which does also cover the state of my workspace, it's atrocious. i really need to tidy up but that in itself is an evenings work and then I'm not painting. However the Malanthope progressed concurrently with the Spawn, up to the point I did highlights.


As soon as the spawn started getting highlights the Malanthrope was sidelined.


It's currently in it's 'wash' state so I'll have pictures to follow and then it'll be on with the turquoise.


He's a curious beast, I still don't know how I'm going to transport him but no doubt I'll solve that problem eventually.


So that's your lot for now, hope that sate your hobby fix from the 40k addict ;)
