'nids part 297 - Genestealer cult - Acolyte Iconward - TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer Genestealer Acolyte Iconward. Currently does this count as #NidVember #NomVember? I'm only now beginning to question whether my GSC stuff should be under my 'nids tally...? I've completed some more 'nids but obviously #ArmiesOnParade has somewhat overshadowed those efforts. I'll still be sharing them soon though.

Anyhoo, it's a welcome addition to my Genestealer Cult. He does add significant buffs to the army, or so I understand so may well be included in it, if I ever play with them. That said there are plenty of choices for HQ so who knows.

I was really chuffed how much it matches my similarly attired existing Acolytes. He makes a great addition to what I've done so far.

I didn't take too many 'red' pics so here's all my white pics too. 

Once again I was struggling with white balance and decent lighting.


I added a little slime coming from the pipe on the base, it wasn't great, the UHU glue is a nightmare to use and the lime paint was a bit too opaque, but semi-transparent looked awful. 


I did enjoy the freehand Free Radical Collective symbols, subtly different than I usually do them. The one on the back of the banner is a bit hidden though.


I tried some different settings on the camera below, not much more to say, just enjoy the pics.




And so I gets me my Great Big Granite Stamp of Approval - TO DONE!'

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been getting my #ArmiesOnParade board together. Once again I had an idea of which faction I was going to parade - my Imperial Knights and a concept for the board using my gaming terrain. I ended up taking 50+ pictures so I could whittle it down to the 6-8 needed to showcase.

I even got down with the kids and did a video on that there YouTube.

Anyway, here's a bucketload of pics. I tried two different layouts [Lancer in front and Gallant in front] and different camera settings. I ended up downsampling some of the images [I took some 48MP shots] so there's a mix and match of images here. They might be a little jumbled up but I'll do my best to put the together.

Sneaky assassin sneaking around in the ruins too 😉
