Regular readers would have remembered my pitiful Table of Shame, completing these Genestealer Hybrids finishes off that list of incomplete models on my desk. Readers from Christmas, might remember my Hobby New Years Resolution, well 8 months in and it’s not going to bad. The arachnarok, is complete and Dreadfleet and Tyranid Attack have a large number of models completed. Read on to see more close ups of these classic Hybrids and to see the groupshot of my completed Tyranid Attack models so far.
I wanted a classic paint scheme for these classic minis. I really enjoyed painting the alien pink skin and adding some purple hues with some light glazes. I even glazed the eyes red to make them seem more evil.
The weapons were painted with a military green, to give the Hybrids a feel of over throwing a planet’s Government and Military.

Wow, you were really able to get something out of those sculpts with your paint job, I must say. Yeah, the good pl' nineties when GW models were affordable and the rules real fun…
Love them.. like Eversor.. great nostalgia.. and now I must go and cry about how I have mostly newer models and only get to paint the older models when I get a good commission.
Lovely paint job on a tough model. I know, I've done a few of them myself (not as tough as getting a good result out of first edition Space Hulk terminators though!). The metal hybrids are a lot more forgiving!
Uber-cool to see such well painted, retro models!
Love what you've done with these guys. Good job making a retro model stand out.
