Coils of the Hydra - Autilon Skorr

The latest addition to the forces of the Hydra! I set about working on this guy quickly after the last WIP post. As Skorr was an event only model i've had him laying around for some time (Horus Herey Weekender 2015 i think...) Now i'm building the Alpha Legion force, i could finally bust him out and get him painted.

Like the Dreadnought, i tried to better shade the metalics on this model without killing the tone of the pearlescent Teal armour. I tried out oil washes on Skorr, something i've used extensively in the past on my vehicles. I used some Burnt Umber wash on the golds, and some Lamp black on the metalics. I also gave the teal armour a pass with ther lamp black to try and deepen the shadows. Did it work? I'll let you decide!

Skorr is also known as the Hydra's Headsman. While i was doing the base i thought i would hint at this by adding a few helmets to the base, some of Skorrs latest victims! I stopped short of adding blood splatter and gore - its not a World Eater model!!

The detailing on Skorr really makes him pop and stand out. Lots of imagry of death with snakes and hyrda's coiling around it, brilliant!

More soon!

  1. He looks great mate. The oils worked well!

    1. Cheers bud! The effect is quite subtle but I think it works. Might try it on my Custodians (watch this space for that one!

  2. I found it interesting how your notes only focus on website..
