Hive Tyrant, Doom of Malan'Tai, and 'Stealers!

Another long stretch of post-less time, but i've managed to get a bit done!

With the Hive Tyrant now painted i have an essential HQ choice for my force. I didnt really attack the Tyrant with a set plan, i just started an let it take shape. The end result was a very simple scheme that fitted in with the rest of the army. I did wonder wether if it was TOO simple, but i think im happy with it. I have to say, its a pretty striking model!

I also managed to complete a brood of Genestealers and a Broodlead to lead them. Again, im happy with the simple scheme, and its my favorite unit so far. The Broodlord has to be one of my favorite models, and the colour scheme fits it well. The elevated base also gives it a much more striking pose i feel.

Finally i have done a Doom of Malan'Tai conversion. Well, i basically tweaked a Zonethrope so im not sure if it really qualifies as a conversion!! The carapace on the head you'll recognise from the Mawloc. This was the most time consuming part of the process, as the origional head had to be completely filed down smooth in order for the new carapace to fit!! The tail of the Zonethrope was reversed to face forwards; a process which damaged the tail quite badly! Nothing a bit of green stuff coudnt fix though!!

With 3 warriors, 12 Homagaunts, and the Doom of Malan'Tai, i'll have quite a bit of painting to get on with! Hopefully more pics soon dedicated followers!!
