I settled on a blue and black paint scheme, with claws, eyes and teeth picked out using GW's range of Shades and Glazes (predominantly either Cassandora Yellow or Bloodletter Red over a white basecoat). After a liberal wash of green ink over the body, they got a heavy dose of gloss varnish to give them that shiny/slimy Alien look from the movies.
I like this model as it reminds me of the scene in Aliens where Vasquez gets trapped by Aliens punching their way up through the floor of the duct she is in.
So, a small submission this week, but hopefully to be followed by bigger things next week. Off now to try and find come Colonial Marines' models (What was that about no new projects?). As a first timer on the Challenge, it has been truly inspirational to see so many great and varied entries and it has really fired up my enthusiasm. So a big thank you from me to all the participants - it is a real privilege. And a massive thanks to Curt for organising it all so well!
