Pretty cool! It's a pretty natural scheme and I love the spots. However, I'd still clean up the skin areas that happen to have some of the green sprayed on them by accident.

Yeah, I'm planning on doing just that. Those are some models that a friend gave me to test out paint schemes.

Thanks for the info!

I have my hormagaunts nearly done, but I was thinking of changing up the tips of my models, what do you guys think?

I think it makes them look more interesting and also opens up possibilities for armor variations on the big bugs later on.

I like it! Also, congrats on not getting bogged down by the gant numbers.

I completely agree, it really adds to them! I vote yes! Four claws up?

I'm still going back and forth between the 2. On the one hand I really like the extra spot of color, but on the other, I didn't want to make them super bright.
