In Space, no one can hear you scream or cry or whine .. so suck it up!

Last night I finished up the Brood Lord and I'm really digging the way he turned out. I painted up the diamond plate and added rust plus some grime to the pipes. I also added more blood to the talons and some dripping down the skulls and termie helms. I mentioned it before but the main reason I started adding blood to this guys is the sculpt of the mini. Where the two sides join (Space Hulk is snap together) there is some .. um I guess I'd call it pulling. It makes the skulls look a bit stretched and figured hey .. that might look cool if I added some gore to make it look like the blood was stretched across the skulls instead of just a crazy mold haha ..  I think it worked..  I tried to make it have a feeling of trickling down the bones and also added more rust where the pipes are snapped to give the feeling that water does drip out from time to time. I think this dude will look cool in the Kill Team games in the future.
