Cryx Infantry

Worked on Cryx infantry this week. First up is a full unit of Mechanithralls with three Brute Thrall weapon attachments. Trying to stick with the corrosion theme, but this time using water-based rust colors instead of weathering powder.

And here are two units of Necrosurgeons with Stitch Thralls. In the game, the Stitch Thralls collect corpses for the Necrosurgeons to reanimate...nice.

I've posted these guys before, but wanted to get a shot of them in my mausoleum scene. The original Cryx battlebox.

And finally, a shot of some previous Bane Thralls I've painted...this time with their officer and standard bearer.

I'm working on a woods terrain tutorial...hope to have that up next, but we'll see where that project goes.

'Til next time.


  1. Nice job, the colour palette really adds to the feel of the character for these guys. I think i would have given in to the temptaion of putting a bright splash of colour somewhere by now :)

    Could you expand on "water-based rust colours" your own blends or a companies set range?

    All the best.

  2. Qalpha,
    For these guys I used 3 shades of Vallejo Panzer Aces rust. Dilute 5:1 with flow release and add a drop of alcohol. Slosh around and build up a few layers of color...done!

  3. Peter Jackson called and he needs the stitch thralls back on set for shooting the Hobbit next week... .

  4. Well...maybe just one...with a speech impediment and mild schizophrenia.
