You'd have to work very hard not to like genestealers. From the ostentatious limousines of the cults to the rohypnol stare of the genestealers, they've occupied an horrific Cthulu niche in a universe populated with terrors. 

This was a commission piece for a client who wanted me to recreate the colour scheme from the original boxed set. I went for a base of Opaque Violet, highlighted with Opaque White  and then washed with Inner Mouth Flesh on the flesh areas which was further highlighted with Flesh. The purple carapace was washed with warlock purple mixed with Gunk (home made dilution agent).

These models were then varnished and given an oil wash to help define the details.
