Amazing! It's like candy to the eyes...
Really I'm trying to avoid using the purple and blue colours of the old cult, I'm thinking I'll do something different ie I'm gonna use blue and purple but a much much paler version of the coloursWhat about a nice dark purple for the cultist robes and the militia uniforms?
Fits with the classic GS cult themes and would be quite easy to do?
Here's a few old pics I did of the painted squad before I painted them.I like this I would add a few normal guys with an extra arm
Nothing says Cult like a Three armed Scavy
Have taken note of this and started doing a few of the guys, unfortunately I don't have drills small enough to do the pig iron guns, and I doubt I will be able to do the vets shotguns for the same reason :no:I'm really diggin' your cult. Only thing that bothers me are the barrels: please drill those out, to get a more realistic look and feel to them.
Looks like the sharpie logo on the side of them. Pens of some kind?+Rep for anyone who can tell me what the rockets are made from, please note I still need to attach the stabilizing fins and again will do this when my plasticard turns up
Sure,What is a genestealer cult fluffwise, could someone give me a quick rundown?
Originally i think Genestealers were their own Army, then they got merged with Tyranids but you could still play genestealer cult units. In the latest editions though, they have got rid of the option to play the genestealer cult units completely.OK, so why do tyranids field genestealers instead of them being their own army?
Or am i completely off... IE this has nothing to do with tyranids.
A lot of this is also linked in with space hulk, tyranids plant stealers on the hulks and when people board the hulks one or more of the crew will return infected, so when they return to their home planet the seeds of the cult have been planted.Lexicanum said:Genestealers are effectively the heralds of Tyranid invasion, because the psychic power of the Patriarch shines like a beacon in the Warp and is perceived by the Hive Fleets of the Tyranids. As the cult's power grows over the world, the beacon becomes stronger, signaling to the Tyranids the location of a biologically rich world. By the time the Hive Fleets arrive, the world may already be completely in the hands of the genestealer cult, or torn apart by civil war between the cult and the remaining free society, or at least weakened and rife with traitors. However, after the planet comes to the Hive Fleet's notice, the destiny of the cult is sealed, because all surviving members are absorbed like the rest of the planet
