So I am doing a lot of funush like strains on my GSC Patriarch Base. Do you have any idea for how to make it look better?

My main problem is I do not know what I am looking for. Tips will be welcome.

The structure itself looks great, but a bit like ... molten cheese right now with the yellow? Maybe add some green, and white highlights to make them look more transclucent/fragile? Something that came to mind is the fungi forests/caverns from Nausicaa (the manga/anime), lots of pics if you google.

Maibee. It sstil does not look as good as I want.

One of the Inspirations was the Super Mario (1993) live movie. Where the King is one huge fungus network that is sentient.

Molten cheese is biomass, I'd say run with it

The idea is that is Tyranid (patrirach) in origin. So perhaps I should turn it more white. All of my nids are white with red in the skin.

hmm, how about you just add some more UHU strands on top, but leave them unpainted? Might help to achieve the semi-transparent look of the Super Mario fungus network. BUT I'd rather test this separately and not directly on the Stealer mini, might turn out too much of a mess

Re:highlights - maybe less like edge highlighting, more like some kind of stippling to make it look like spores or something?!

Some color that I'd use to make it more like the Super Mario Movie would be Flayed one Flesh with a Reikland Flesh shade wash and a highlight of Palid Wych Flesh. Or you could paint it all Wraithbone and go over it with Guilliman Flesh.
But I still like the molten cheese look.
