Flyspray wheres the god dam flyspray!!!!!!!!!

Very nice man, I love the bone, very gribbly.

Is the red finished or do you still have more to do?

If you get a chance would you be able to do a quick 'how to' on the bone, it just looks so dam good.

Well it is definitely going to take more than your average sized bugswatter to kill of this beauty. Have to agree with Jacobite, the bone/carapace looks great!

cheers guys, i was worried the bone didn't come across on the pics very well. Still some work on the red to do, and need to work out colours for the weaponry as well. I case you were wondering that is the monsterous creature base he's mounted on.

To paint the bone i went over a black undercoat. With each layer you paint, you should leave a small amount of the last layer. I built up through brows starting with scorched, then bestial then snakebite then started adding white to snakebit until i was happy with the results. Each layer is basically just a series of lines painted onto the carapace. You should vary the amount of the last layer showing through so at random intervals have long layers of the lighter colours.

Um depends what the rest of your army is like doesn't it.

As a stand alone model I would go with bone to match the chiton and maybe a light blue/purple for the fleshy stuff - in other words I have no idea.

You know, even amongst the best miniatures the most that can usually be said is, "Hey, that looks cool!" This nasty fellow, though, is absolutely unsettling. Conveying a emotion through painting and modeling is tough, but you've done splendidly!

On gun colors, without seeing the rest of your army, I can say that something dark, like maybe a bruised or burnt flesh kinda color would look nifty.

I would almost go with the bone colouring for the weapons main shell and go with a contrasting green for the inside areas, make it look like it is glowing from within.

it took quite a while for the modelling side, trying to get the legs in decent positions and so it would actually stand was difficult. When i finally got it done i then dropped it down some stairs, so it was back to square one. Painting wise its probably taken 4 hours or so.

I was thinking either purple or green to go with the scheme as a really bright and poisonous looking colour for glands, sacs etc.
