I guess the main reason Im yet to paint my Genestealer models is the fact I cant imagine them blending in with the rest of my army with a paint scheme for example my Tyranids look like this.
Skull White/Bleached Bone/Bestial Brown skin
Red armour plates
Bubonic Brown carapace cracks.
I just cant see how thats going to work, since the Stealers have to much carapace cracks in them and Im not sure how the Bubonic Brown will look.
Please give advice.
Give it a go. Paint one to see how it is going to look and then go from there. If it works then paint the rest. If it doesn't work, adjust the paint scheme on your test model until it does work and looks good in your army.
If you can get an image of your 'Nids up then we can see what we arw working with too.
I ran into the same issue with my first Hive fleet experiment, noting that Genestealers have a unique carapace. My scheme was carapace-detail oriented; black bodies, purple claws, and all carapace/armor was layered from Graveyard Dirt brown to streaked Golden yellow and highlighted with a florescent streaked yellow. The effect was quite unifying until I got to the Genestealers. To address the issue, I ended up using green epoxy putty to build the 3-section standard carapaces on their backs. It's a pretty simple project if you try it. It unifies the army appearance and allows you to claim the extended carapace biomorph for the genestealers.
Yeah, I wish I could post pics too but my camera's broken. With my fex the Bubonic Brown cracks look really good but the Genestealer model has so so much cracks im just not sure how it would look.
PS. Do they still do blood red tougnes for the Stealers?
