Default Genestealer Hybrids *the Kraken-Cults*

some Hybrids for my Kraken army. (also planned to use for a IG army if i can get my hands on more of those models)

6 out of 14 finished hybrids. i use those as spinegaunts
*living amunition don't fit the weaponry
*the twin linked represent the multiple shots
*gaunts are the best way to use them

colour choices was of course,all flesh parts in kraken's scheme. all from arms to head, both the more evolved hybrids and the more human ones aswell. to represent the skin tones have changed. altough the stealer ones have the dots on the heads.
and for clothing i picked red for edges to be ecual to carapace,and black overall. cloth are purple. so why purple? well. i have tongue on my trygon in purple, aswell as it ties to the original cult scheme back in the old days, and it looks nice for kraken too.i have made revesed scheme on some i have two of the same. like the hooded one, one have black robes insteed of purple, but have a purple hood insteed of black.

Great shading. The kraken flesh tone makes for a lovely sick skin colour.

I like the crouching ones very much, but the tall ones are kinda ugly models. Even so, its good paintjob

Wondered what these fellas would look like when they're painted.

Nice scheme painted really well!

Apart from the shinyness of the cloth areas, I really like these.

They're you're own inspired scheme and i really dig that. These impress me more then your trygon.

Would like to see more work spent on bases, and possibly some home grown hybrid conversions would be extremely cool.

Well done.
