I didn't spent too long on each figure. Overall about 2-3 hours on each, with most of the effort on the large ones; I just didn't paint much while I was doing them.
Overall, I am pretty happy with them, and think they look a lot better than the sundrop effect that I could have paid $100 for.
First off, all the figures together. On the box they showed the Queen with a blue colour, but I wanted to do something interesting so I did an effect where they started off green and turned more blue as they aged, keeping the plating green. I think it worked well overall and makes the figures more interesting.
I decided to make the bases a metallic dark blue because that was what the board was, and the damaged protruding metal because it looked a little like construction metal, it would contrast the figures, and mostly because I like orange and don't use it as often as I would like.
Here is the Queen and her new hatchlings.
The next level of growth for the aliens, a little less green, a little more scary.
Now they are fully gown adults, ready to do serious damage to the ship's crew.
In the background is one of the larger aliens. Didn't get many good photos of these, but they were the least interesting figures. Scary on the table though.
This was supposed to be a more artistic shot with some blurring effects done deliberately. It's okay.
As always, I hope you like the photos and the painting.
Mostly these are now going to live in the game box and be unseen for the next year or so. That's the way it seems to work. Most of the figures I have painted haven't seen light for years,
