So, I've got the tooth and claw box and am getting ready to start putting some cultists together. BUT, before I dive in I thought I'd show off a little preview of what's to come.

:lol: Excellent use of the GF9 models (and the Patriarch print?)! I was just thinking the other day that they would work well standing in for a Broodlord and Genestealers. I know a few people who use the Prodos models to play Space Hulk with which inspired the thought.

I wanted those prodos models but didn't have the capacity to "jump" in time and justwasn't gonna pay that kind of price. But these guys are so affordable i had to.

EDIT: I start applying paint tonight.

Queen/Patriarch looks great.

For what it's worth the GF9 Warriors were sculpted by the Acheron team, formerly known as Prodos. The plastic models scale almost identically with their resin cousins. The only shame is the feet being partly molded into the bases but that can be overcome.

Thank you NTaW, i missed a pair of hoses on the top left and right of the head, I'll take care of those later.

The feet being base-locked is a minor grievance. The scale though, once i had these little gribblies next to some primaris and og marines i knew they were something i wanted to work with. They're bodies and proportions are very "average imperial citizen" in comparison (or at least what i imagine those proportions to be).

The Brood grows stronger!
Our eldest brothers move through the depths. Protecting us from those who would call us blasphemous! Those who would seek us out where we live! Those who would butcher us for knowing the truth! Who would murder our children for our perceived sins! Those followers of the false emperor, whose minds have not yet been opened to our mothers song!

Old Mother has guided us for generations, her song leading us to truth!
There is no emperor of mankind my brothers and sisters! Only the all-consuming black maw! It devours all reality, for where the light shines darkness has already been!
And that darkness, my sweet siblings, will return again to consume the light! We must do our part to convince the foolish slaves above that darkness is inevitable! That the black maw comes to consume us all!

Deep beneath even the Black Maw's chambers a slumbering form shifts in the darkness. It can feel in its simple yet brilliant mind that the time for awakening is coming, the Black Maw is growing near and the Queen Mother shall welcome it.

First works on the Iconward.

med_gallery_33718_17033_243341.jpg

I don't care for the way the dry-brush looks on the ridged part of the mining, uh, armor(?) So I'm going to redo that. I tried leaving it black but it still wasn't right.
Orange? Too prisoner.
Red? Too metal people.
Grey? Everything else i do is grey. No. Just no.
Blue? Too obviously bug man.
Purple? Too obviously alien.
Green? WAAAGH!
White? Too box art.
I'll think on this and return.

On another note my original plans for this involved getting a bottle of Musou Black (found here: https://www.ko-pro.b...ou-black-paint/ ), for the insectoid carapace parts. I wish i had done so. I guess that's for a future project.

Last one for tonight.

Brother Scrotus, Acolyte Iconward of the Black Maw

Caked in the filth of the underworld a lone creature scurries through the shadowed tunnels. Desperately clutching a wrapped staff, its most valuable treasure. The creature had been sleeping, saving its strength for the next gathering. It had heard Old Mother's call and awakened, it had a job to do. A noble and important cause that would please Old Mother and Old Mothers pleasure was the broods pleasure. This creature would relish in the psychic feedback of that joy.
The almost man-like creature entered the main gathering chamber and stepped into the dim light. It wiped away some of the filth and unfurled the generations old banner. Proudly holding it out for the it's brothers and sisters to view.
Old Mother could feel it's presence and a warm sensation of joy and love radiated out across the brood. Brother Scrotus, Iconward of the Black Maw felt joy, pleasure, love. Brother Scrotus felt as if he were her favorite in this moment. He felt himself smile.

Who doesn't love some Xenomorph cult :) ?

 

I'd suggest some shade/wash to smoothen your drybrush on the skin/carapace of your brood if you dare ;)

The safe bet would be agrax earthshade, but if you want something more organic, maybe try the Druuchi violet ? Or drakenshade blue if you fancy a cold alien skin...
These are just the 3 I use the most ; you should make some tests on bits and find out what suits you best !

I have finished the Abominant and will apply washes hopefully later today. Then post some pics.

Other than that I'm not super pleased with the current outcome of the Abominant. My current color scheme works nicely on the more bug like gribblies but less so on the more humanoid brethren. So after applying washes i may shelf this one until I've decided on a different color scheme change.

I'm not sure actually what shade agrax earthshade is but i do have blue and purple washes. So once the pups are in bed I'll get to painting.
