The basilisk rises. (not the artillery, its hive fleet)

Today, i have recived my 10 genestealers from ebay, to add to my starting niddys, and here are some pictures over today.

As you can see, this is the beggining, and that is actual sand on thier bases, they were primed with a white spraycan, not gw mind you.

The next phase, i have them assembled, a few in progress.

This is the complete stage of my genestealers, the colors were all from the GW starters kit, they are suppost to look a little bloody, the orange i got from mixing skull white, blood red, and some sort of bright yellow.

This log will be updated as i gain more units and pictures

Be happy with my newbie work :)

I take it that this will be hive fleet basilisk? I was looking for a modified IG basilisk tank. Good start though and good luck with your new project.

yes hive fleet basilisk, although, i think someone could modify a basilisk by makeing it look like traitor guard and putting on 3 guns instead of one.

Thanks for the criticism. :)

There's nowt wrong with basing with sand. Add a few little stones and drybrush the whole thing and you'll have decent looking cheap bases.

I like your colours, and the paint is on there nice and strong. It is a little thick in places so i'd water it down a little.

Have you got any washes yet? Giving your nids a wash will really help to shade the crevices and bring out the detail a bit more.

A simple yet strong paint job. I like, and why be upset at being new? I'm right there with you learning to paint guard. Good work. + rep. :victory:
