Warp Spider Test Model

I suck at visualizing color schemes. Like, I am sure it is some kind of actual disability. When ever anyone tells me the colors they are thinking of, my mind immediately jumps to what ever professional sports team has said colors in their uniforms. If you tell me your army is green and yellow, and I don't see it, I assume you are fielding the Greenbay Packers. Another side effect is that I can't paint a squad until I have fully realized one model. So, that is what this guy is.

This guy put up a fight. It took me a long time, and a lot of being slowed by analysis to the point of just freezing and not doing anything. That is super absurd in light of the fact that I didn't even have to devise the scheme, since I ripped this straight for the Eldar book. Even still, I liked what I saw, and wanted to get close, though not actually duplicate it.

I was not, and am not still, looking forward to the freehand on this model and his future squad mates. The symbol on the forehead isn't bad, but the warp packs will be daunting. That being said, the end result is nice, and I don't want just big black packs with nothing to draw the eye.

What was a lot of fun was the gun. I had a good time figuring out how to make it "glow".

Hopefully I will be showing the rest of the squad soon.

Thanks for reading,
