Onyx Contact Force Reinforcements: Umbra Legate and Umbra Samaritan

Hey all,

get ready for the arrival of the reinforcements for the Combined Army: The Umbra! One of the most dangerous, murderous races in the entire universal warriorhood. Mysterious martial artists from an unidentified planet, the Umbra have been the scourge of the cosmos for ages. Subjugated, dominated or seduced by the EI, they have become its field assistants, a conduit through which the Evolved Intelligence makes its wishes known. They serve as the EI’s heralds, enforcers, mediators, lieutenants, judges, executioners and right-hand men. Brought forth by the darkness, these cruel entities hold a fearsome power that the EI harnesses to inflict the worst punishments and lead mass destruction operations as their wrath seethes unmeasurably.

Regarding the painting scheme, I tried to fit the Umbra to the rest of my Infinity Combined Army forces but still stand out with a unique color conception. Therefore I went for a lot of reds which harmonize well with the army color scheme of greens and black. Also, I really like the Umbra studio paintjob by Angel Giradez, as the pale skin perfectly fit the vampiric abilities of the Umbra. So I did the same.

“Pray. Pray hard. Pray that your god will help you. If you don’t have a god, make one up now. No one else is coming to save you, now that the Umbra are on their way. And they’ve already chosen you as their prey, so they’re coming at you with everything they’ve got. You have no way to stop what’s going to happen.”
