Finally put the brush to this model. I based coated this fella a couple of months ago when it first came out and was really more of a purchase on the whim. It was raining when I was at Titan and I had an hour to kill to I thought, why not, let's get that new kit. I even magnetized it to form either of the options that came in the box although I reckon I will never use the Maleceptor in this edition.
Enter Shield of Baal: Exterminatus.
I now had the a mission where I would need to hold points. Since I would be sending in majority of my units to hold and contest. I thought why not try this fella. He is good enough to be on his own and I don't really have to worry about synapse. So I threw together a 1850 list and boom, he worked.
I used quite a lot of washes on his toxin sacs on his back. The base does look a little sparse so I may add some static grass to liven it up. Green works great against the purple too.
I just have to finish up the Malanthrope, 8 more Hormagants, 3 Biovores and the Exocrine to finish my 1850 Sturdy List which has the Living Artillery formation. Stay tuned for more!
