Space Hulk: The Board Game - Part 2: Genestealer Swarm

Few Tyranid creatures have earned such a terrible reputation or caused as much damage to the Imperium of Man as the Genestealer. Genestealers, like virtually all Tyranid organisms, are characterized by their six limbs and resilient carapace. They are bipedal and able to move with lightning speed on their reverse-jointed, clawed lower limbs. The upper sets of limbs are distinctly different, the foremost pair ending in razor-sharp claws capable of slicing through even Tactical Dreadnought Armour. The colour of the Genestealer varies depending on its parent Hive Fleet. Specimens have been reported ranging from bone-white to jet black. Perhaps the most successful strain of Genestealer is typified by a blue-indigo coloration. This strain has been encountered on numerous Space Hulks and is possibly specifically nomadic.

These amazing and dynamic models come from the latest edition (4th) of the popular Space Hulk Board Game. The original miniatures come in red (for the Blood Angels Space Marines) and purple (for the Genestealers) plastic. The superb paint job comes from a very talented friend, Daryl. If you ever need stuff painted and other art-related works, you can check out his amazing works at his Facebook page, Xunobi, or you can just ask me and I'll get you hooked up.
