Default TGenestealer cult - the great father approches

Hi all

Am new to the forum so please be gentle,

Here are some pics of my genestealer cult army, it uses the imperial guard codex

I used Skaven plague monks as the base figures


The first job to do was to make them a bit taller so this is how I went about that, not sure if this is the best way to go about it so if anyone has any suggestions on what might work better I'd appreciate the input.

I basically just cut off a part of the sprue and trimmed any parts of the feet that stick out from below the robes



Next I started to sculpt the robes now my green stuff skill is pretty much non existent as this is only the second time I've ever tried using the stuff, so C&C is welcome along with any help people can give me with this, here's what I have so far

Front

Back


I'm gonna file down some of the areas where it doesn't look to smooth.

Next I filled in the area where the original head went and made a new area to mount the new heads the heads I've used are Pig Iron's KOLONY FERAL HEADS

Front


Back


Side


And here's a few more of the little fellas





Again I know I have a fair bit of tidying up to do on these but for now I hope you enjoy them

I'm not sure if I'll move the gun so the passenger is using it at the moment I'll have a play around and make a decision when I get a chance

Gotta finish the back on this guy to make it look more like the old skool stealers (see next pic)












Sorry about the blurry pictures

Any way C&C are more than welcome and any tips people can give me for improving my green stuff work would be greatly appreciated

Very nice models you have there, dude. I particularly like th use of Plague Monks as a base for the robed models, very ingenious use of Skaven parts.
