Glossed it to protect it whilst I handle it during painting.

Thats looking suitably menacing, great work.

That shine on the exo-skeleton looks great in the photos. Does it look too glossy in real life to keep it?

To be honest Rev, I have wondered the same thing myself about the glossy armour etc. It is a little glossier in real life but not massively so I would say.

I am being actively nagged into giving farty keh 8th edition a go, so these may see action in that at some point I guess.

So I put together a couple of vids to show how I painted them, I got some requests from elsewhere:

For the larger beasts like the Carnifex:
