So I've been playing Cryx for over a year now. The Nightmare Empire is a lot of fun. But with the upcoming Journeyman league in my area, I decided it was time for a change. I had intended on actually waiting for the league to start.. but my enthusiasm got the better of me.
I struggled to find a scheme I liked, for weeks. I trawled the internet like a whale sifts the water for krill, eventually finding a scheme I liked.. and gave it a shot, tweaking it a bit. Took me several attempts to make it work.
Pattern, from a black base.
Hormagaunt Purple -> Murderous Magenta -> Badab Black -> Magenta -> Magenta/Deneb -> Magenta/White.
Adeptus Battlegrey -> Badab Black -> Adeptus -> Adeptus/White -> Adeptus/White
Lich Purple -> Badab -> Lich
Khemri Brown -> Desert Yellow -> Deneb Stone, then use Gryphone Sepia to neaten up/divide any claws.
Scorched Brown -> Calthan Brown -> Bleached Bone
Hedge grass and Highland Tuft
Arcs are Hormagaunt then Magenta
I finished this today.
Next on the painting desk- another Scythean, Shredder and a couple Forsaken. Batch painting them all.
Any suggestions on Nyss skin tone? I'm debating doing them the standard UnderbellyFrostbite way, but I'm pretty sure it'll clash with the rest of my army. Murderous Magenta would be the unifying colour.
Hair - Deneb/White, badab, white.
