'nids part 71 - Ymgarl Genestealers Chitin and Bone Highlights

First and second sets of highlights on the Chitin and the Bonewhite is done. I think these are going to end up a lot paler than the standard Stealers, in itself not a bad thing. Nice to see the tentacles suitably writhing and scary.

A bit of variety in height thanks to the scything talons in the back row there.

So I'm beginning to wish I had one more to make two sets of 5. Perhaps even have him partway coming out of the ground  from dormancy...

When I get to basing them there will be larger stones and bits on the base. Seeing as they're coming out of terrain they need to be a little more densely populated than a normal base. I have some lava pebbles from a plant pot that can be sanded flat in seconds on a paving slab that make interesting shapes.

Here's where I've used the lava pebbles before:


  1. Very nicely done. I know I've said it before but I love the Dermal patterns on your Nids.
