Xeno projects for 2010
With the remainder of this year focussed on finishing the ulumeathic league army, I decided to plan out what I want to do for next year. I always like to pre-plan my armies out because I find it helps to motivate me and get them done, this includes setting myself dead-lines.
Halo-Zone aliens ;
theres been mentions of "supernatural" inhabitants in this area of space, and that gained my interest. Since at least 3 of my armies are lovecraftian im going to make these more Chamberian so they are to be based off Robert Chamber's "The King In Yellow". yellow robed weird alien spirit-like things.
I plan to use alot of vampire-counts models for this project, but alot of the faces and limbs will be covered up in yellow tentacles and other gribby stuff. The spirit-host models seem like a perfect base for this project.
With the likely new plastic gargoyles coming out next year, it seems like a perfect place to start a winged xeno race. Theres quite a few mentioned in the backround fluff as well. I chose the Caradochians as their mercenaries and the name is cool.
For these im not sure which to go for ; either night gaunts or Mi-go as the visual reference from the cthulhu mythos. Mi-go would be as simple as a head-swap, allthough id have to sculpt the heads. The Night-Gaunts would be a little more work I imagine.
