This is the original Old One Eye miniature released around 2000.
In my last game with Da Mastacheef I accidentally left my classic Screamer Killer at home and Joah, who just acquired a rather large Tyranids army, let me use this model as a stand in. I agreed to paint it as a "thank you for this favor.
|The Screamer Killer's state when I borrowed it.|
First of all, I picked out the meaty bits with Appellee Barrel Terracotta
paint. This was followed by a glaze of Carroburg Crimson
, then a highlight of Pink Horror
|WIP, building up the colors.|
The rest of the model was painted up to my typical Tyranids standard
using my recipe for the purple and blues.
After that I used Nuln Oil Gloss on the purple carapace and the claws. I really liked how this turned out. But, this being a heavy a clunky model, I felt I had no choice but to spray a clear coat over the whole this which dulled the Nuln Gloss. I liked that glossy look, so I apied 'ard Coat to the claws, carapace and fleshy bits.
I think it turned out great in the end. So much so that I have a new appreciation for a model I once dismissed as silly at best. I decided I wanted one for myself and I lucked out and won an unassembled one on ebay for a surprisingly low price. I say that because mint in blister versions go for staggeringly high price there as do well painted ones. So expect to see this winning smile on here again at some point.
I've ran out of things to say. Other than, I really enjoyed working on this and that Joah seems to like it also. If your ever in the area you can swing by The Outpost
in Johnson City to check it out
Ok, we'll close this out with some glamor shots. Enjoy!
