This week my random model is my Doom of Malan’tai conversion. It is based on the standard Zoanthrope model. I replaced the head armour with the armour plates from a Mawloc’s head, I also replaced the little arms with some bigger arms and removed the back spines. I made this model a few years before fincast so it was a metal model, removing the top of the head was a right pain! I had to power file it off carefully, making sure I didn’t damage the rest of the model of accidentally file off my fingers. I had to greenstuff up the join between metal and plastic as it wasn’t a perfect fit. I also adjusted his neck, I don't like the way Zoanthropes have their faces pointing down. I cut off his head and green stuffed it back in place at a better angle.
The base was a resin Space Hulk style base. My entire nid army is themed like this to go with the stealers that came out of the limited edition Space Hulk.
I painted the model in my standard nid colours, the paints used have long been out of production now :( bleached bone with flesh wash and blood red with brown ink.
This model hasn’t seen the table in quite a long time as I haven’t used my nids in ages. I don’t have the things that work in the current codex, just lots of genestealers and a handful of other gribblys like lictors and a shooty carnifex that isn’t even legal. I’ve got no intention of trying my nids again so this dude will just sit on my shelf.
