Genestealer Cult


Genestealer Cult - Jackal Alphus

I've loved the idea of mounted hybrids for ages. Ever since I read the story about the raiders unwittingly attacking a caravan packed with cultists. Worst raid ever.Oh FFS, the raiders wailed.With the advent of the new cult bikers, an opportunity presented itself. Added to that I needed a 40k racer mini for an upcoming BoYL game, and lo, it was time. Kol Renko, jackal alphus of the Wyrm Forged cult was born.Now, my cult is placed in a corrupted adeptus mechanicus temple, so yeah, biked would make more sense. But to that I say FMEH. Instead of rationalising this I'll just put up another picture of Kol here.I used one the the excellent mutie horses from Gorkamorka for the genesteed. It's perfect. For the rider I used admech, scion and cult parts, as well as a couple of fan-made bits. I used an acolyte body for Kol as I wanted him to be three-armed, and hence a 2nd generation hybrid. I did consider adding reins, but then came to my senses as rider and mount were painted separately, so it would have been crazy ha

Genestealer Cult Easter Eggs!

Happy Easter! Today we cover a small easter egg with the Genestealer Cult. I got myself the Nexos, one of the characters released recently for the re-vamped army of Warhammer 40k. As character models aren't produced in metal or finecast anymore (at least mostly, there are some exceptions like Commissar Severina Raine), but come as […]

Post Adepticon Breakdown Part Two: Assault on Kings Landing, Space Hulk and Star Wars Legion

Back with my continues coverage of Adepticon 2019.Check out part 1 here where I talk about my first impressions of A Song of Ice and Fire game, Horus Heresy Knight Fight, and the Kings of War Big Battle.I skipped my first game to sleep and paint that day. It was an ASoIF even, but only cost me $5, and I made the better decision considering how late I stayed up to finish for the 40k team event the next day.I did make it to my second game, which was ASoIF Assault on Kings Landing. What made this game extra fun was it was ran by the game's designer. He had a really cool mission put together where the 8 players (mostly Starks and Boltons) fought his Lannister Army. I was that little green blob of Wildlings led by Tomund Giantsbane. Not the most accurate thing, but awesome of him to let my do that when asked who my favourite character was when he realized he didn't have enough units set up for us. He also had a constant narrative progression happening. AND BRIBES. He'd bribe up with free models to do certain actio

Genestealer Cult - Neophyte Icon Bearer

Looking positively dashing in his ascendance day finery, Rauss Arnatt, neophyte of the Kabeiri, raises his icon for his brethren to cheer and whoop at. Arnatt is feeling good, and he's sure the magus gave him a little wink earlier.A neophyte icon bearer is a super useful addition to my cult, usable in Warhammer 40k, Necromunda and Kill Team.These days there is a huge store of bits available for the genestealer cult fan. Once, arming up the old Bob Olley hybrids might have been a chore, but no longer. They fit suspiciously well on most of the vintage boys. This particular, rather beefy 4th generation hybrid is one I think well suited to hefting a big heavy cult icon, and I've wanted to paint this one for a while. After some consideration I gave him a nice big phosphor blast pistol, which also fits neatly with the adeptus mechanicus flavour of the Kabeiri. He should be carrying an autogun or shotgun, but rule of cool won out.It took a fair bit of sanding and cutting down on the arms to allow for his unusually w

40k – Genestealer Cult / Hybrids Pack

Hello! In today’s entry I decided to throw a few Hybrid troops units at once. Your skilful eye will also notice two Acolyte Iconward models – for the sake of photography I decided to mix them with other creatures. The models have a full range of armament. In my opinion Genestealer Cult is currently one of the most interesting armies produced by Games Workshop. I invite you to see a few additional photos Commission painting: minisforwar@gmail.com

Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team Starn’s Disciples

So it is time to not just look at the very interesting Kill Zones, like Sector Fronteris or Sector Mechanicus, but one of the actual Kill Teams. With the re-release of the Genestealer Cult back in 2016, the new Kill […]

Genestealer Cult - The Watcher

In the heart of the principal Kabeirian forge temple on Thelema stands the watcher. Raised as a symbol of vigilance and eternal patience, this huge statue gazes up to the heavens awaiting signs of the coming of the Star Children. For generations the faithful have made pilgrimage here in order to pay homage and lay devotions and trophies at it's feet. The histories of the martyrs and heroes of the Kabeiri are attached to the stone with wax seals bearing the wyrm form. The skulls of notable enemies are also laid here to bear witness the the resolve of the cult and show all the fate of those who stand in it's way. Inquisitor Johann Krasek, Warlord Gornak Worldburna, The Ethereal Aun'La Auta and many others pass the ages under the watcher's gaze.As the ages have passed, the restlessness of the cult has found a focus in the watcher. So much psychic energy has been soaked into the stones that now the watcher is rumoured to shift it's gaze almost imperceptibly from time to time, as if searching. Deep in empty space

Genestealer Cult - Acolyte and Metamorph

Ahh, back among my brothers and sisters of the cult. It feels good. Feels RIGHT. Today I present two new members of the Kabeiri, or the Cult the the Wyrm Forged, brothers Groust Yogoth and Aldren Dekker. The acolyte kit is a box of gene-cursed wonders, with so many gribbly bits and pieces in it I spent two nights just playing with parts before I settled on the two fresh-faced lads above. As a wanderer in the outer darkness for many years, I cannot tell you the joy of so many cult kits and parts available now. It's magical.Brother Dekker is carrying a rock saw. It was always going to be the first acolyte I made. It's so metal. After joyously rooting about on the sprues, I assembled Dekker in three parts, keeping his head and the saw seperate. Woe betide anyone who glues it all together and then tries to paint it. Yes, you can't see the back of the saw for the most part, but now I know it's given as much love as the front.There's quite a bit of detail on these boys. pouches, icons, tubing, belts, blasting charg

40k – Genestealer Cult / Broodlord

Hey! Today I would like to show you one of the biggest beasts fighting in the Genocult army. It is Broodlord, which I had the opportunity to paint some time ago. The model very much reminds me of a figure from Space Hulk game – similar sculpt, similar position of limbs. I like the model itself very much. It is very dynamic, full of details and completely “alien”. It’s a pity that the Genestealers themselves have such old and bad models…. But you can’t have everything – maybe they will get some refreshment on the occasion of the new Tyranid codex? Meanwhile, I invite you to see a few photos and visit the blog regularly Commission painting – minisforwar@gmail.com

40k – Genestealer Cult / Hybrids

Hello! On the occasion of publishing of a new Genestealer Cult Codex, I decided to find and start posting photos of a large army, which I had the pleasure to paint some time ago. There will be a lot of posts and figures! Hybrid Metamorphs / Acolytes box goes first! Games Workshop has put into one box two options and a TOTAL MASS of bits. I firmly believe that this army is a real paradise for collectors and those who like conversions. The possibilities are huge! I decided to combine two intense colours – yellow and orange. The models are packed with details – clips, buckles, sachets and bags. GW did amazing work here! Bases made of cork, old frames and weathered with pigments. I invite you to follow us on social channels! Commission painting services- minisforwar@gmail.com

Additional Cult reinforcements

I recently managed to get some of my Necromunda gang finished and submitted, under the guise of the Recon theme round.Thanks to my current batch of territory, if I get to take all of my gang... or get really lucky with random draws, this is what my opponents can expect to get dropped into their backfield turn one.. with me going first ;)I'm really looking forward to some of the new cult models and finding ways to sneak them into Necromunda. The new magus is especially nice

Kill Team Tiamat

Genestealer Cults have been a fascination of mine since the 90's. I had a small army in the grim darkness of the Rogue Trader days based around the theme that a chaos cult skulking in the sump stacks of an Imperial world had been infiltrated by genestealers. There was a whole campaign, ran solo, based on forces only slightly larger than what might find now in the new Kill Team.My old force is lost to time, but contained genestealer hybrids, chaos beastmen, chaos hounds, and a handful of imperial army models I'd painted in corrupt colors, much along the lines of the one that appeared in White Dwarf a zillion years ago (well, I didn't look up the date, but it was old).When Games Workshop released Genestealer Cults as a full army for Warhammer 40k, I bought a pile of plastic for it, but never actually got around to painting any of it. With the launch of Kill Team it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a go without the need to paint up fifty models (and what better foe to pit against Kill Team Crucible?).
