It appears I'm stuck in a time warp, a red one. I can't see past the redness of it all, it's going to see me leaking RED! All the armies I'm kicking out at the moment are daubed in the stuff...and I know that my Orks are going to have red trukks too. God help me, I'm sorry for all the red, but here is my Swarmlord finally finished and ready to go in the 'to game with' pile

Looks great! Of course now you must tell me, what paint(s) are you using to get that color-shift on the carapace?

THAT is quite simply AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

The real threat to the imperium is not:

it is :
92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are one of the 8% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this into your sig.
95% of teens would go into a panic attack if the jonas brothers were about to jump off the empire state building copy and paste this if you are the 5% who would pull up a lawn chair grab some popcorn and yell JUMP BITCHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GENERATION 6: The first time you see this, copy and paste it into your sig and add 1 to the number after generation. Consider it a social experiment.

For the carapace effect I got the specialist paint from here http://www.thecustompaintshop.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=42_2055_2132 . You should airbrush it on, but if you brush it on in thin layers then it works just as well

Fantastic take on the SwarmLord, well done, and a brilliant paint job to match!

Thank you for the link to those paints, they'll come in very handy for future projects!

Just one question, what finish did you use to maintain the paint effect?

I like the take on the swarm lord. May you scare the daylights out of your enemies on the table with that bad boy.

Wicked cool. I remember late 90's at Motorola when our finish specialist did a bunch of pager mockups in this stuff. People went librarian poo. 1st time I've seen it on a gaming model.

A fine looking model and the colour is win.

But the tail tip seems a wee bit underwhelming in comparison to the rest of it?

It reminds me of a beetle from the back. The shift of color really catches the eye.

This is good.... isn't it?

Good grief that stuff is expensive. I don't believe I'll be getting to enjoy that particular brand of paint. But it does look nice...

Gallery links to WiP's http://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-13984-6129_Hive%20Fleet%20B%27buri.html . After painting I brushed on clear silk wood floor varnish to protect it and give it that slightly shiny effect that insects have. As for the tail, I quite like the rattlesnake end
