40k - Malanthrope Cleanser

 For the last 12 months I have had a Tyranid Malanthrope primed sitting on my desk.

On Monday evening I thought I would try out my new Cult of Paint H&S Evolution airbrush I had bought myself at Xmas. 

It was quite clear, even after a few minutes, that this airbrush is a step up from my Patriot and my Sotar. I was able to lay down lines at low pressures that I don't have the skill to do with the other brushes. in this case, I used it to quickly lay down base colours with some modulation on the carapace.

The reflection is mainly due to the gloss varnish I have on the shell. I may look to tone that dowm a bit.

One thing with this resin model was that it was a really crap casting. I purchased it cheap second hand and I think that it may be from a Chinese/Russian recaster as I'd hate to think Forgeworld would put out anything this shite. Lots of broken claw tips. 

Yesterday I bought a couple of Tervigon/Tyrannofexes off the local Facebook trading group. They should arrive next week and I'm looking to see how they paint up with this brush.
