They're mid-way between the much grimier Plague Marines and my Genestealer Cult which may not be exactly what I intended but shaking my 'signature' vibrancy was always going to be a challenge.
The skin is something I'm quite pleased with. I managed to balance similarity with subtle differences. It's actually the clothing that I think lens more into my traditional style. To be fair that's because I actually wanted them to as then I could repurpose my cultists as both Genestealer and Chaos, nto that I'll ever play with them but they were added to my Armies On Parade display to bump up the numbers.
However, that long cloak/coat was very much in the grimdark style and I love how grimy it ended up.
Here we go with the entirety of the Poxwalkers, all mixed up so you can see how the 4 different variations of the skintone just add enough variety to make things interesting.
Grey base colours with red and green shading and bone base colours with red and green. All with purple to add raw and bruised effects.
I just absolutely love them as a group. Despite this being a fusion of two styles I'm familiar with they feel very different.
Although I would not describe this as a levelling up moment, as I do my Ylthari's Guardians its definitely something new and it surprises me to see what I achieved.
I think the surprise is enhanced because they really came together as they were finished.
Not to mention the gore FX, with Tamiya Clear Red X-27 and deciding the eyes would be gloss black.
You see it some many times in films but not always in miniatures, perhaps because it's hard to notice but I felt it was the right choice.
I just love the end result.
White pics to follow and there will be front and back views so you get to see them clearly.
Great work! Very Nurgly. Congrats on your results!!ReplyDelete
Thanks DAM. Things have been slow going since these, still more to share but I've taken my time and been less 'compelled' to paint which I think results in a healthier work/life/hobby balance. So, I'm not upset by the slow progress, but pleased that I am able to move forward at any pace and still feel satisfied.Delete
