Jesus Christ, how many of these things are there? Let’s hope they run out of bodies before we run out of bullets

These little critters are the lowest form of Nameless lifeforms in the Star Saga game and perfect for testing out my colour scheme. All the artwork and display miniatures for the game have a very simple and consistent colour scheme for the most part.  Blue flesh, purple tentacles and deep red carapace. They’re also really highly textured and are perfect for contrast paints.

I also had an idea similar to brown wash trick. After all main colours were done I used a slightly thinned purple wash over the whole model before going on to pick out details using Tesseract Glow, which is listed by GW as. “technical paint” but is really more like a lurid greed contrast paint. The purple wash really helped to cover up some of those white patches that contrast paints seem to be plagued with as well as giving a nice shade to all of the colours, especially the red.

After doing one of each and proving the colour scheme I farmed the rest off to my brother to paint.
