Today I got started on a couple test models for my genestealer hybrids, mostly for use with Advanced Space Crusade, although they may see some play with Shadow Wars if that picks up again in the local group.
My Tyranids are red with yellow armor plates, and I painted up their clothes to tie in with that – which makes for a bit of a misstep with the flesh tones, as I wanted the hybrids to have some of that too. The 3rd generation (on the left) blends in with his clothing a bit more than I’d like (in addition to looking sort of like a burn victim), although going a bit more purple than my ‘Nids actually are helped a bit.
Overall, I think the scheme will work. Boots and such will get a deeper brown, metallics will be metal, but this is basically how they’ll end up.
