    Shadow Over Grimdark Innsmouth - A Genestealer Cult Log

    .
    .

    Hello fellow Warseer peeps.





    I've had the beginnings of a Genestealer cult for a good six years or so, but never really got around to doing anything with the models. Until now!
    So without further ado, some pictures:



    My first batch of Brood Brothers
    I'm deliberately trying not to use too many colours, and intend to paint relatively quickly and in bulk so that I actually stand a chance of making progress at a reasonable pace...


    Some cultists with guns


    Second generation hybrids





    And some work-in-progress shots:


    More Brood Brothers (I think I'll be making a LOT of these guys)


    Magi

    These guys look great! I remember back in early 3rd edition when there were citadel journal rules, I got to play against some cults. What rulest are you going to use to represent them?

    A great start (and a great log title), I'll be following with interest.

    Good work Lord Damocles - always nice to see that centre magos model, and you've done a great job at kit bashing some brood brothers. What units will you be including in the army? Chimeras, purestrain 'stealers, heavy weapon teams?

    I'll probably go with Codex: Tyranids. So far I've got as far as:

    Patriarch - Hive Tyrant
    Purestrains - Genestealers
    1st/2nd generation Hybrids - Genestealers
    Magi - Zoanthropes
    stabby Brood Bothers - Hormagaunts
    shooty Brood Bothers - Termagants
    Limousines - Erm..? Tervigons? maybe

    I might make some heavy weapon teams, but I'll need more ye olde cultist/hybrid models, and ebay isn't exactly economical at the moment.

    Victoria Lamb (off of Golden Daemon) sculpts and sells them. I've nearly run out of them after my second batch of cultists, but luckily I also bought some of her chem mask heads





    A small update:

    I've aquired a pair of these, which I intend to convert into Limousines:

    They're not especially limo-y, but I'm aiming for a sort of 1920s armoured car vibe.

    WOW. I never thought that I would see Kaledon Imperial Guard.

    Magi are finished

    (Huh, the camera flash makes the grey highlights look really rough )


    And I've built the Limousines


    I have to say, that these are probably the most insanely annoying models I've ever built (and I've built BFG Shroud cruisers and the original plastic landspeeders).
    The side panels came as one piece, which had to be bent inwards towards the centre line, while at the same time tilting them inwards so that they're closer to each other at the top than the bottom. It might not have been so bad if the side panels plugged into a slot or something in the base of the model... but they don't. They just sort of sit there, pinging out of place. Blargh!
    Anywho, some choice curse words and a load of greenstuff to fill in the gaping chasms between parts, and they seem to have turned out alright.




    Also:

    Some hybrid heavy weapon teams will be on the way

    Looking mighty fine! Really like the robes of the cultists!

    What where your thoughts behind putting the limousines on bases? It has the effect of making vehicles look bigger than they really are and with them being essentially normal cars rather than tanks I'm not sure about the effect.
    (Ofc looks generally is more important than realism in the world of beer-drinking fungal symbiotes whith genetically inherited engineering skills )

    The first Limousine is done:



    The second batch of stabby Brood Brothers



    And the second batch of shooty Brood Brothers

    If I have the stamina to make a sufficient number of counts-as Termagants to use the Limos as Tervigons, they'll need bases. That was it, basically
    They're only pinned into the bases, so if I feel the need to use them as proper vehicles they can come off.




    More hybrids, and some purestrains comming soon!

    Updates etc.



    First generation hybrids
    They're so 90s it hurts



    And the second Limousine (which looks remarkably like the first)



    And a couple of purestrains just to prove that I'm making progress with them




    The first three of my eBay hybrids are destined for heavy weapon teams (on which progress is, erm, slow...) which leaves me with the fourth to play with.

    After looking at the 2nd and 3rd edition army lists, I've decided that what I really need is an icon bearer/Hierarch. A little WIP shot:

    Fantastic! Love the Dark Eldar knives on the Cultists! I'm also working on a Genestealer Cult army (on commission, sadly, and not for myself) so I look forward to following your log for inspiration.

    Woo! Finished building the icon bearer. My greenstuff is - as always - a little ropey, but you get the idea:

    Awesome plog, consider me subscribed. I loves me any kind of cultist!
    Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Ultramarines!

    I too love me the sinister genestealer cult! Great progress so far mate, and good plan to use the nid codex to play the list. I'll certainly be watching this space!
