Testing out my colour scheme on a random gaunt who just happened to be sitting there. Who needs devourergaunts anyway ?
Tis pretty rushed, as I just wanted to see what people think of the colours before I move onto actual models I'll be including. Don't want to paint an entire fex with a scheme I don't like ;Y. And yeah, there are mouldlines, they will be removed on other models don't worry .
I like it. Good and matt. Looks 'niddy.
Up, up and away!

Nothing to see here, please move along.
I do that, it makes more sense, why have a limpet thing on the front where it can get shot?
Put it on the base of the tail, problem solved, they have to kill the host to get to it, which renders it useless anyway.
Although I only put them on hormies.
Anyway, looks fairly good, I'd make the purple at the head of the gun a bit lighter, too striking a contrast between flesh and more flesh, I only have a slight shift in colour darkness for those areas.
Also it's very patchy, I had that problem too, water down the paints a bit and do two coats on the bits with flaws.
I think it looks good. You could try to brighten up the eyes. Perhaps a brighter green would work. Make them look alien with green. You could also use deep red highlighted with pink for areas such as the cone on the end of the devourer. This will help to add more variety to the colour scheme.
The adrenal glands can work very well on the base of the tail. I have done it. I suggest that you get it closer to the body. You can do this by cutting off those little ridges just above the hips where it's tail connects to it's body. The adrenal gland will fit very nicely there once you do this.
Thanks for all the ideas and compliments guys 8Y. I'm liking your idea of having the red on the end of the devourer, might try that out, along with moving the adrenal gland further up. I will also try to smooth down the paint a bit more, as it does indeed look a bit globby here and there .
Paint looks a little thick. Try thinning it a tad more.
If you think Mathammer doesn't work and dice cannot be predicted, there's a whole field of mathematics called probability that would like to disagree.
I like the scheme, but personally I would use a darker blue for the chitin parts and a warmer color for the 'skin' like maybe just add a bit of gray or brown. 2 cents from Jack
