Alright so while I think about how to expand on my Khador, I was offered a crazy deal on some Cryx. For the price of two pints I scored about $100 in models. Sounded like a good idea right? WRONG! Just started my third faction with Khador and now my fourth with Cryx! SON OF A B!TCH! Well I do always seem to lose to them so probably a good idea to start playing them. To the dark side I go.

So first thing I wanted to do was come up with a list that I could collect to keep the cost low and not go crazy. Gor3 called to me. I started collecting them around when Black Friday started. PERFECT! Even though I’m Canadian I knew I could score some deals across the boarder. That started with Black Bane. They came pretty quick. I did the super cheese with them. Spray white and wash blue. Put some metal on the swords and DONE!
Over all I wanted my Cryx to be black with a hint of blue. But again let me stress. I am not a painter. So the images I had in my head did not come out on the model.
I picked up 3 shades of Blue so I wouldn’t have to do any mixing like I did with my Khador. That was a pain. I picked up my previously primed Mechanithralls and went to work.
I like to start with the deepest part of the model. So I am not trying to paint past things I’ve already painted. Means less touching up. So I went at it with the green I chose for the flesh.
I used my lighter green to do some highlights on the flesh. And put some mid tones and highlights on the blue armour. I decided not to use the wash on the copper bits. That way they would pop out a little more. I used the mid tone as my LOS markings and looked good enough to me to be called DONE!
