Hey, was wondering if someone has some pictures of the original genestealers from Space Hulk (art or screenshots from the old games). I was thinking of getting some Genestealers and paint them like that for the kill team space hulk. I think they were purple with flesh colored head or something like that? THanks for any help

they were always purple flesh, blue carapace, and bone-colored claws:


it was a while before any of the studio models were ever different color schemes than that, so if you can find any old painting guides or articles, they should all have this scheme laid out.

good luck!

I painted mine that way:

1. Prime black.
2. Dry-brush white.
3. Purple flesh.
3. Blue carapace.
4. Brown claws; drybrush tips so they fade to antique white.
4. Highlights.
5. Ink (black) joints and color junctions.
6. Eyes.
7. Complete the base (flock, painted flock, interesting bits, or what ever you like)
8. Seal
