Doom of Malan'Tai by Facial-Tic Doom of Malan'Tai by Facial-Tic
This a converted Warhammer 40k Tyranid Doom of Malan'Tai. I used Citadel paints Ushabti Bone, Sotek Green(which looks friggin blue to me) and Screamer Pink. There are several layers of blue wash and brown wash to simulate wear, dirt and grime. Plus the blue wash helps the screamer pink not look quite so pink. i lighten the Sotek Green gradually by adding drops of white while doing the feathering on the chitin, usually at least 3 layers of feathering to make a nice gradient towards the edge of each plate.

The Eldar legend of the Doom of Malan'Tai refers to not only the tale of an entire craftworld's death, but also to the Tyranid creature that caused it - to the Eldar, the two are indistinguishable. The lament speaks of a Tyranid creature unlike any other, a beast that gorges on the very life-force of its victims. The Farseers speak of a devourer of souls, a vampiric leech that consumes every spark of life and every shred of psychic energy, leaving only death and soulless oblivion in its wake. To the Eldar, such a fate is considered worse than death. Being a highly psychic race, the Eldar were more susceptible to the Doom of Malan'Tai's predations.
