Xenos henchman. Sslyth #1


Snakes that try to act and dress like men—how could anyone trust such a creature?“— Arch Militant Kestral Overmears


I can.” – Inquisitor Xing


I’m exceedingly happy with this build, everything just clicked. Actually quite similar to Ilieth.


What really got me worried is painting this miniature in a cool serpent scheme. Anyone got any ideas, hints and or tips?


Next though will be some greenstuff on this female sslyth (still nameless ) but first some more henchmen.

    Maybe look for example snakes in the wild, see if there are any you like, then copy that pattern, but I would suggest exchanging the colours for something more alien, like purples or turquoise maybe.

    • Yeah I want something intricate that really catches the eye and downplay the armour with black as on Mean-machine. I once saw a daemonette rider with a really cool pattern. I’ll see if I can find that image again.

    Try coolminiornot. Think I saw one on there.

    If you want to tie it in with the other models, maybe use dark reds and blacks. That would look cool!

    If you feel up to the challenge – diamond back rattlesnakes have a great pattern. Just swap the lighter centre colour for red and the outer diamond for black. Just remember to leave the belly light coloured.
