I bought Space Hulk for the first time a long long time ago...back then I am sure that the monsters were called Gene stealers? Maybe they are now but things called Tyranids look awfully similar! Anyway the appeal of the game was undoubtedly set in my mind from the film Alien and the betterer film called Aliens (yes I am old). This week it was time to have a go at painting one of these other world monsters....
This is indeed a work in progress as I am looking for a sign to print out and slap on the bare wall..."Danger" or "Air Lock" should do it, just to break up the blankness...I also have some tiny wires to run down the wall and along the floor.
I have no idea what this figure will do except stand alongside his 30 or 40 mates that seem to have been bought on ebay. Most are painted terribly in thick paint with yellow staring eyes but back in the day they would have been cutting edge and looked awesome!
The painting desk (which was the biggest land grab since the annexation of Texas) has extended itself upwards but like most dictators I am not satisfied. A sincere plea for an extension will be submitted to the united nations of wife....but in all reality plans for further expansion are already underway.
Keep blogging and have a good weekend.
