Spindle Drones are metallic-organic arachnids that make no difference between organic or mechanical intruders, cutting down all with their razor-sharp limbs. Ranged weapons are the safest method for dealing with these fast-moving killers, in particularly targeting their single eye.
Next up in the box, the second easiest to paint seem to be the spindle drones! As with the Ur-Ghuls they add a nice creepy vibe to the box, and have a unique shape compared to anything else Games Workshop makes. They remind me of something from Destiny.
My only criticism is that they don't feel that imposing due to their size. I saw the larger Guardian Drones that came out as part of the Ascension expansion. They're the perfect size, and I wish they came as standard. Too bad they're no longer in production and sell for crazy prices online.
I mixed sand with glue and applied it to the base. I then drybrushed it with Eshin Grey, then Mechanicus Standard Grey. I then painted the outer base with Rhinox Hide.
I kept these nice and simple, so I can push through the boxset quickly. For only using a few colours they came out nicely, the only thing I'm not fully happy about is the final carapace drybrush. I think it would have looked a lot better as a wet blend, but I didn't want to spend any more time on them.
