   I repositioned the arms to a more attack-minded pose, but other than that the Seether is box standard. This conversion is inspired by a quick conversion I did on one of my Slayers to make it different from the other Slayer. The Seether is basically painted as the Slayers; Drybrush drybrush and drybrush. The only difference is that I have given all the metal a wash of brownish red to make it look rusty and I have added green spots of paint to the bronze to make it look corroded and I have added blood to the claws and tusks to make…

  I wanted my Pistol Wraiths to look individual because I imagine them as very individual entities roaming pretty much on their own only reluctantly accepting commands. However I did not plan to paint the second one almost completely incorporeal. It did seem to be the fitting thing to do to paint each in one of the physical states of wraiths. Here is the formula I used to paint the incorporeal Wraith. It was actually quite easy: Primed white Painted horse grey (coat D’arms paint) Inked/Washed it with a thin Goblin Green mixed with Horse Grey (2 grey to 1 Green) Highlighted with…

Originally tha Machine Wraith seemed like a powerful addition to the Cryx army, because it could take over warjack and even if it was booted out by the enemy warcaster the warjack would still be inert for a round. However that changed with the arrival of the full escalation rules for the Machine Wraith so now I cannot see it as any use in my army because with it’s 1 wound it is far too vunerable 🙁 whic is a shame since the mini is absolutely stunning and one of my top 5 favorites of all times, up there with…

Not much to say here. The Mechanthralls are painted simular to the Scrap Thralls except their metal bits are not coloured since they are not build out of enemy warjacks but in the depth of the Dragon Lord’s caves.

Goreshade the Bastard I decided to make Goreshade stand out from the rest of my Cryx by painting him in a white armour with a worn metal look because being Elvenkin he would still have retained some of his arrongance and pride and would therefore be an undead with style. I am very happy with the result and would like re-paint the warjacks to fit him at some point. Deathwalker I wanted to make the Deathwalker look very grey. The obvious choice was to paint her skin grey but what is less obvious is that all her clothes are highlighted…

The Skarlock has a blue skin colour than the other Thralls because it is more magical. Since my Cryx is a paint for play army I didn’t want to spend to much time on it. However, I did want magical signs on his body and the cloth hainging from his hands so I painted geometrical shapes on it since they were easy signs to make.

Necrotechs All my Necrotechs have some degree of customisation in order to make them look individual. One has had his right arm replaced with a Ork Runtherd arm and his left arm replaced with an arm from a Scrap Thrall. The other two have had some small conversions made using bits mostly from a Neo Soviet Cyclops. Scrap Thralls I decided to try another approach on the rest of the Scrap Thralls since I think the first three (see below) looked too healthy. These have been primed black, Then painted in various faction colours to show they are in fact…

Deathrippers The Death Rippers that follows the paint scheme I decided to go for: Drybrush, drybrush and drybrush. Only “real” painting has gone into the bonebits. The Slayers have simular bars on the lower back to those ribs of the Bonejacks. So I decided not to paint them as metal bars but rather as ribs to keep the same overall theme. All the Deathrippers have small changes to them either by opening the jaws or added blood spallet in order for me to keep track of which is which in the heat of battle. Defilers Defilers are painted like the Deathrippers…

  Deneghra is very much painted in the same manner as the Warjacks because I don’t think Cryx is the realm where you polish your armour a lot. However the armour is only a small part of the mini. The bigger part is the insanely flapping cloak which I painted in a white color with green shades sort of like a piece of clothes that have been lying around in a very damp environment like a swamp. I am not too happy with the result but she’ll do untill I get around to paint her twin from the other startbox…
