Painting Night number 2 – I took my first attempt [Genestealer – Alpha] and examined his strengths and weaknesses.

I had neglected that he has some form of Armour which was present on the model but not visible.

I only manged to get 5 of the 10 planned done – i had a slight distraction.

General observations were that they look better with a lighter base – black or dark doesn’t work for my visible palette.
