I really dig how you paint yellow! However, there might be contrast issues if the robes/clothing are same color as purestrain skin. Too much bright yellow and it all blurs together.


I haven't gotten around to testing a purestrain yet but this is a concern I have. I'll cross that bridge which I get there I guess!

I wanted orange tyranids at first and then I realized I had a similar problem with my cult’s orange clothing. Everything looked same-y.

Might not take much to differentiate the yellows, maybe highlight or wash the robes differently, or slightly modify the skintone on the hybrids.

Corruption is our armor.
Infection is our weapon.
Immortality is our reward.

This is interesting. I'll be keeping an eye on this

 

My Necromunda Gang and basis of my upcoming GS Army is The Court of the Yellow King.

My yellow is more mustardy and dusty however, and the genestealers themselves will be pure black, a la xenomorphs to reflect them being tunnel monsters.

 

I only have one squad of Neophytes, eight stealers and acolyte hybrids painted up so far.

Waiting in the wings I have two more Neophyte squads, the Tooth and Claw set, another 20(!) stealers and a Hellhound and a Baneblade.

Love it. What about this browns on your cultist? Very clean scheme.

Mournfang brown and argax earthshade. Every color is just a base and a wash, I wanted to make this easy as possible because I knew I would be painting 100 cultist at least

Well, I just can't walk past a lovecraft reverence.

That really is a pretty nice yellow, even if it is a bit clean for my taste (I'm just a fan of weathering).

A quick stand in for the new Gunslinger model until I can afford a legit one. A push fit acolyte from Overkill with a few extra guns from the full acolyte kit. That cowboy Gunslinger is just too cool for me to pass up.

Very good idea for a budget gunslinger model! :)

The rules for the Kelermorph are up on the Warhammer community website. This guy is looking insane. I find it hard to imagine not running 3 in a list unless they are very expensive.
