So these spawn are from the board game The Others: 7 Sins from CMON, the Envy expansion, which I got for quite a good price on Ebay. I think it ended up working out at around just over a £1 each, and for the quality and size of the models is a pretty good deal.
I don’t own the main game, nor have I played it, nor plan either. Just the models are well done, and I thought they would make excellent spawn. These things will form 2 units (3+4 respectively) and add some variety to my spawn units.
The Controller model is the poorest figure in the set, and it’s now laying headless in my bits, as I didn’t need it. Some people I’ve heard aren’t keen on the recurring sexual imagery in some of the designs of the game, but old skool GW had a habit of nudity, innuendo and a great deal of knobs, tits and fannies, so it’s nothing new. I suppose they are not figures for the easily offended.
So here’s the bit where I was going to show you a load of nice shots of the before and after, but since my phone’s died on me and can’t get the pics off my phone, then here’s a few I’ve stolen off the net to illustrate my point.
As you can see, there’s a ton of detail on these creatures, and when I saw them, I did think these might have been better suited for Slaanesh spawn, but with an appropriate themed paint job, they would be acceptable spawn for any chaos power.
I’ve opted on mine for a scheme of pallid/rotting flesh and sickly greens, contrasted with blood and gore, a theme I am rolling with, with all my spawn, just subtle changes here and there in the palette, just to change it up here and there. It keeps everything tied together with the rest of my wave of disgusting spawn creatures if I ever want to use the option of using them all at once in a game
.The Avatar is a lot bigger than the rest, but the rest are still a decent size.
Anyway, let me know what you think, it’s good to get feedback to make sure I keep on track!
