Stealers

After spending most of yesterday trying to decide what to paint today (no kids, no wife, house to myself) I cut down my original plan if doing 40 orcs and decided instead to paint some Genestealer Hybrids.
All classic sculpts, some of which I've bought, some I've traded and a couple I lucked on.


Here they are skulking around in the Nananphelion base. 
I'll hopefully get a game in tomorrow when I go up to see Linz before them heading further north for Neil's stag.

Here is a pic with different lighting. I'll see if I can paint a Purestrain tomorrow to back them up and I might even try and paint a squad of Orks that I undercoated and I obviously need to get these guys based! I'll leave painting the Patriarch for another day!
Cheers

  2. Lovely paint up. Very envious of your collection. I only ever had some of the hideous plastic ones that went away in some ebaying/cleaning up of my own.

  4. Oh very nice! Now you just need an ork hybrid or two and a limo. Possibly a possessed purestrain for full on RT cult completeness ;)

  5. Really cool to see some more colours than just pûrple on those Hybrids, suits them fine. Will you chnage the traditionnal colours on the purestrains too ?

  9. Gorgeous work as ever! Stealer cults are automatically awesome, and you've done a great job on them.
