Painting this guy up wasn't to bad. I do notice some mold lines that I missed (which makes me mad) but other than than I am pretty pleased.
I was scared the blue would be too much but I think it works. It ties into my tyranid army well while keeping still it linked to the cult. The last hurtle will be the vehicles. I will either go with a similar style to my guard or I will end up going a new way entirely.
This model needs a little more highlights on the blue to fully complete the model. Of course I have the base to do as well.
I think the metamorphs and aberrants will be painted in this style. The neophytes, magnus and primus will be painted with the lighter tone. This leaves the acolytes. I think that they will be getting the darker treatement sine their hands, head, and feet are very similar to genestealers. They just hold their weapons instead of growing them.
I saw there was a new challenge for Dreadtober So I plan on switching back to get my base done and finish up the painting the walker. Then I can swing back to paint up some more cultists.
