With preternatural speed, Hybrid Metamorphs scuttle forward, their weapon limbs thrashing, and biomorphs pulsing with deadly toxins. Born in a cult’s latter cycles, these formidable beings are believed to be the result of a unique convergence – when a Tyranid hive fleet approaches a planet already hosting a Genestealer Cult. As the day of the uprising dawns, it is the Hybrid Metamorphs who proudly lead the charge on the front lines. With iron-hard claws, sinewy tentacles, and slashing talons, they crush and hack their way through any obstacles, becoming revered heroes of the cult, inspiring devotion among their broodkin followers.
Within this captivating multi-part plastic kit, you’ll find everything you need to assemble five Hybrid Metamorphs. Armed to the teeth with autopistols, Metamorph talons, blasting charges, and rending claws, these fearsome warriors are prepared to face any challenge on the battlefield. Additionally, you’ll discover hand flamers, a heavy rock saw, a heavy rock drill (complete with a backpack), and a heavy claw cutter, providing you with a diverse range of options for unleashing havoc upon your foes. Not to be overlooked, the Metamorph Leader, can be customized with two special heads and armed with a devastating bonesword.

How to paint the Hybrid Metamorphs set
- Step 1: Clothing
Begin by painting the clothing of the Hybrid Metamorphs with a bright red color, like Mephiston Red. Apply thin and even coats to achieve a smooth and vibrant finish.
- Step 2: Skin
Next, paint the exposed skin areas of the Hybrid Metamorphs with a dark purple-gray tone, such as Daemonette Hide. Use thin layers to build up the color gradually.
- Step 3: Shade the Skin
Apply a shade paint, like Druchii Violet, to the skin to add depth and shadows. Focus on the recessed areas, like around the eyes and between muscles, for a more realistic appearance.
- Step 4: Layer the Skin
Now, use a lighter purple-gray color, such as Genestealer Purple or Xereus Purple, to layer the raised areas of the skin. This step will create highlights and make the skin look more textured.
- Step 5: Paint the Weapons
Choose the appropriate colors for the weapons. For metallic parts, use Leadbelcher or Ironbreaker. For blades or gun barrels, use Abaddon Black. Apply thin layers to ensure a smooth and even finish.
- Step 6: Shade and Highlight the Weapons
To add depth to the weapons, apply a shade like Nuln Oil or Agrax Earthshade to the metallic parts. Then, use a lighter metallic color, like Runefang Steel, to highlight the edges and make the weapons pop.
- Step 7: Add Details
Use various colors like brown, orange, white, or metallic paints to add details to the miniatures. For example, you can use Balthasar Gold for belt buckles or Rhinox Hide for leather pouches.
- Step 8: Final Touches
Take a moment to check for any missed spots or uneven areas. Touch up any imperfections and ensure that the paint job looks neat and polished.
