I had some free time on Sunday and decided to go through and repaint some of my old Canoptek Scarabs to match this new color scheme. I'm really happy with the way they turned out. Here's the old scheme for comparison. It's certainly not bad, but the eyes don't really pop and the Scarabs themselves sort of blend into the base.
|Old Scheme... kind of plain!|
For the Nihilakh Dynasty, I made the legs and head silver, the body the aged turquoise and the eye a nice glowing green. I'm much happier with the results this time around. I feel like they really pop now and just look better on the table.
I was able to complete eight of them so far and have another eight to go. I'm planning on acquiring more and doing some little vignettes... maybe have them crawling over broken Dreadnought arms or Rhino armour plates.
And finally, we have a shot with the finished Destroyer Lord so you can see how these look in comparison.
