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.

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.

WiP of my kitbashed Kelermorph. Had an extra Primus and was wondering what to do with him. I think this conversion came out pretty slick, and since I plan on running at least 2 in a 1500+ army it's good to have some that don't look identical.

The Revolvers are all from the Orlock kit. A lot of the Necromunda bits have fantastic crossover potential with genestealer cults

The last guys skintone doesn't look nearly as yellow in person, and is distinct from the cloth. The saturation in the pic makes them look almost identical

Looking good!

 

I really like the keler-primus, might have to steal that idea ;) and the bases for the bikers look great too :) 

 

Keep up the good work :D

A few more Neophytes WiPs, and a Banner Bearer that will pass as either Neophyte or Acolyte. Plus a whole bunch of Overkill Neophytes, another bike squad, and a few acolytes going to the Primer box.

Group Shot. It's been a while since I've put paint on any models so trying to get some motivation. Happy with where my force is and happy to see it grow.

I took a bunch of glam shots of my 'Munda models and figured I should do the same for my King in Yellow Characters.
