My sweetie picked me up a whole whack of models over the holidays including Incubi and a venom. Yay me! I'm waffling on how to paint the venom. You see, I have a paint scheme for the wyches and one for the Kabal element and their transports are painted similarly. Now I'm going to add a third variant (loosely based on the Kabal troops). So. Should I paint the venom to match the Incubi or the Kabal or, as the fluff suggests that since all the elite pilots are cult, paint it up like the wyches scheme.

Thoughts?

I would paint the Venom to match your Kabal if it is going to primarily transport Incubi. I had this same question myself and ultimately decided that Incubi tend to ride in their employers' rides.

I also painted my Kabal and Cult models in the same scheme, so didn't have this question come up!  Razz 

Are your Cult and Kabal schemes all that different? Could you possibly use similar colors in a variant scheme?

They're pretty different:

Here's the paint scheme for the Wyches:

Really different.
I would paint the Venom as the passengers that it will carry most.

Kk. So probably Kabal then. Although I may ask the question again one I have a sample Incubi painted up.

Which will be a while 'cause I gots other stuff in the queue right now.
