'nids part 228 - Trygon & Genestealer Broodlord/Patriarch - Chitin highlights

Just a quick one, I've been pottering around with a number of my projects, my movement trays arrived and I've started looking at the Rippers but inbetween I found an hour or two to start some chitin highlights. This was initially on the Broodlord and I was trying to be really careful, which is why it took so long. It did reinforce my view that when it comes to the Trygon I will hate, hate, hate doing the same.


So when I decided to do the next level highlight I thought I'd do the Trygon's head, just to get a bit of progress on it. Again, tidy but not as fine a detail as I'd like. This is as good as I get I just need to live with it. Second highlights went on the Broodlord, I also got some Ryza Rust on the base, which is a little lost on Red Planet BASE! but I'll try and fix that with subsequent layers and metal scratches.


It amazes me how quick this has come together, the Broodlord can be done in a snap, it's practically half complete already. I'm going to break the Trygon down into parts:
  1. Back
  2. Scything Talons
  3. Tail
I may even split those into separate parts, the tail will definitely be 2, if not 3 or 4 sessions. The back probably 2 at the least and the Talons potentially 2 and then repeat them all for second highlight, a total of 16 sessions to get half way! I'll really need to mix things up so I don't go mad painting it.
