I have like 60+ spiders stashed away in a box for just this moment and decided to use the oversupply of night lords themed paints I purchased way to many of and had lying around in surplus. The theme for the army is going to be a winter time dreary and decay base to try and match with my winter theme table at home and the spiders themselves are deep blue icy themed.
Approached base coating as normal, black with white zenith highlights on the tops and leg bands. Then blue primary color over the top in a couple of thin coats for coverage. Tried 3 different patterns on the Arachnaroks carapace and simple bands and strips on the smaller spiders.
So that is the basing and base coats + shading done, now the long haul on details!
