As such all the highlights are done, although I might want to add a few extra touches to the red
I then added all my Tyranid Chitin highlights and have waethered all the Acolyte weapons with Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust.
As much as the plan was to reach a point where I focussed predominantly on the Acolytes I'm still very much bringing the Neophytes along with them, they just happen to be a few steps behind in the likes of weathered weaponry...
At this stage I should have been working on the Acolytes but given the potential obstacle of the variety of skin tones still to do I saw it as a bit of a challenge to highlight all those heads and hands.
You can just about make out the highlights on the turquoise skinned hybrids, I carried it through with all of the skin tones, but I was less confident doing the dark skinned guys, not sure why, I think its the challenge I face every time I do it with the Dark Angels.
Having varied skintones was always going to be a problem reconciling with my hive fleet colours. I think I've managed it reasonably well but I also know this force is incredibly busy looking, an unholy riot of colours and variety. It disappoints me a little I wasn't able to make it more simplified but it does reflect the ragtag nature of the force at the least and if I wanted them all the same I've done that already with the Tyranids themselves...
