Given that my other topic with minis is all about Heroes I thought I'd better start a second one with Villains otherwise they might fight...

Here's the start of the invasion:

Libra! Sweet mini. I picture him as a quiet type who lets his blades do the talking, so I took that as the paint scheme and kept him in quiet tones except for the blades :). Oh, and he definitely had to be black belt ;)

Image

Image

And every good invasion needs minion to swarm in so here's mine. A Lvl2 Brawler called a Spaceathrope, :STR 4, :DEF 3, Big, Levitate, Tentacle Whip (Hurl Weapon), So many limbs! (Skilled), Survival x 1. And a 2 per card Lvl2 Blasters called Spacegoyles with :ENG 4, :DEF 3, Flight 2 and Skilled.

Rest of the team coming soon.

I really like the way you've done the gray for Libra and the minons.

I also wouldn't have thought of using the tyranids as minions, but it actually works rather well!

Thanks guys!

Here's the latest additions to the invasion.

Scorpio: Wanted to make him look like an alien fencer guy with his white armour, came out nice.

The Brain Bros, Gemini X & Y: Pumped with how the brain bulbs turned out. Thought the best way to do them was the photo negative thing with the reversed colours, happy with them as well.

Loving the Ulthar; great colour choices and the reversed twins colours was a very good decision. Great stuff. :)

baskinders - are you doing the full Ulthar team; basically will we get to see a gourp shot soon or when the whole Team is done? :)

Sure am mate, nearly finished Taurus and then the other two left. Once they're all done I'll bang up a group shot :)

That is an absolutely amazing team you have put together there, I'd be thrilled to go up against a team like that.

I'm really impressed with the colour choices too, it's not easy to have so many models with different colours and allowing them to look distinct, while still having the unified team style as well.

Really out of this world.

They look great. As said above, they are individualized, but as a whole, work well together.

I think it's your style of painting that really gives them the "team" feeling. Love it.
