I picked up the Sector Imperialis Objectives set back when 8th was released. It’s a cool kit with six very narrative objectives. I put the kit together straightaway, primed them and … nothing. Nothing happened at all. They just laid there.
Until when I started painting the Lord of Skulls, I need something to break the monotony of painting gold and boxing in red (I had my Heldrake on the table too because boxing in blue is much more fun than red). The Xenos Stasis-Crypt is probably the coolest piece in the kit. It has a specimen tank containing the head and spine of a Genestealer, with a clear plastic front.
I went for a very dirty look but it looks really awesome (self praise ftw!). It’s a bit hard to make out the details of the Genestealer but if you look closer it emerges, fully painted. I’m super-pleased and can’t wait to cook up some missions around it. Space Hulk and Zone Mortalis pop into my mind. Search and destroy, suffer not the alien.
Hope you like it!
