Gyrinx: psychic space cat and psyker’s familiar. He will be named Trim, after the cat belonging to Matthew Flinders, which seemed appropriate for a space-faring psychic cat and also a nice nod to a piece of Australian history.
I particularly liked this model, from Bombshell miniatures, and I am pleased with how the paint-job came out, though these large photos are quite unforgiving! I may even buy a couple more to paint in more exotic colours, a la Cheetor’s, as linked to above.
Colours used were GW Fiery Orange for the fur, inked with W&N orange ink to shade. The fur was then dry-brushed with Fiery Orange. I then painted stripes on with GW Snakebite Leather before dry-brushing with yellow then white. The muzzle ears, chest, socks, and tail tip were painted white. The nose is GW Tentacle Pink. The eyes were painted white then inked with GW Asurmen Blue wash to give them a blue tinge, yet having that empty look so appropriate for psykers.
More Reaper Iguanas.
Left is based on GW Scorpion Green and the right on GW Snot Green. Both were dry-brushed with yellow then white before having the stripes added and another quick dry-brush of white.
Both just painted black then dry-brushed very lightly with white. The brown patches were layered with GW Vermin Fur then GW Leprous Brown, then Leprous Brown with white added.
And, lastly, I pulled the Escher out of the cabinet to paint her base to match these a bit better. I thought to do a comparison shot at the same time, so people have a better idea of how big these models are. (Click for a bigger pic.)
