Warhammer 40,000 – Goliath Truck and Rockgrinder

A themed week on industrial vehicles without mentioning the most obvious one, the Goliath Truck and Goliath Rockgrinder, wouldn't be complete. So here it is. I have been really looking forward to show you this kit. Ever since it was released, it is on my watchlist and I really like the design they went with […]

Warhammer 40000: Kill Team Arena Battle Report – Adeptus Astartes vs. Genestealer Cult

  Yesterday’s Apocalypse game displaced this Kill Team Game, but there’s SO much piled into Wednesdays I’m putting it out today instead so the queue doesn’t slow down. Ciaran’s Genestealer Cult takes on my Ultramarines in this Kill Team Arena game!

Genestealer Cult - Brother Medlock

Not every cult member gets fancy power hammers and swanky mining lasers. Some of the brethren just have to make do. Vyrion Medlock here has to put up with a simple, ah, halberd? Machete stick? Knife-pole?Anyway, whatever it is, it pales in comparison to the magnificence of that cape. Stylish, high collared, shoulder length AND it has a beautiful gold clasp. So impressive is brother Medlock's cape that he has chosen to leave his top off so as not to distract from it's glory. Buck Rogers would be green with envy. Check it out:With a cape like that the 3rd generation are in the bag.I've been meaning to paint this fella for ages. Sculpted by Bob Olley, he's based on the original unreleased hybrid that, let's be honest, I have no chance of acquiring. Unless you have one. If you have one gimme it.In any case, this guy is pretty hard to come by as well, so I was delighted to snag one. I've been pushing him higher and higher up the painting list, and finally, with BoYL coming up he made it. I fancy having him run dow

Genestealer Cult - Cult Mindslaves

Leading on from my musing on cult mindslaves, I fired two of these revolting meats-sacs under the brush. In case you missed my thrilling justifications for adding these to my cult force, here it is again. Previously (read in 80s American TV voice) on Mr Saturday's Mumblings:The holy ones of the Wyrm-Forged spread the blessings of the Star Gods under the direction of the grandsire himself. There is one blessed one however, who is only unleashed under the most dire need. One whom even the faithful are wary of, for they sense its wrongness innately.Known as the Chimera, this scion of the cult is unique. It is an anomaly, its asymmetric form at odds with the perfection of those of the 5th generation. Its body shifts and alters over time as the genetic legacy of the hivemind boils within. New claws grow even as old limbs wither and are re-absorbed. Eyes disappear under chitinous armour which sloughs away to reveal new flesh. In this way the Chimera is a constantly evolving microcosm of the hivemind itself. This is

40k – Tyranid / Genestealers

  Last post with Genestealer Cult forces! Twenty Genestealers are a nice addition the forces that you could see in many previous posts. I decided to keep the purple-orange pattern so army has a consistent color scheme. I am slowly succeeding in posting photos of all my older projects. As you can see, I try to interweave such entries with other, newer works of our studio. In the near future I would like to complete the Empire’s army to Warmaster and start the Death Korps of Krieg series. Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com OR message on Facebook

Genestealer Cult - Mindslaves

Lately I've been mulling over the old tyranid list from White Dwarf 145. There are several entries in there I'd love to paint. Zoats, mindslaves, squigs and the old plastic tyranids. Seeing as I'm already doing a genestealer cult this list has caught me by the hobby. You know how it is.I can run many of these units in modern 40k or Killteam. The first unit that piqued my interest was the mindslaves:In its larval stage the parasitic Mind-Slaver feeds upon the Tyranid's captives. It burrows into the victim's skull and searches for the brain stem. Here it clasps in place with its legs and attaches itself to the base of the brain.At first the immature creature is not powerful enough to influence its host but, as it feeds from the blood stream, it becomes stronger, allowing it to take over and direct all of the creature's higher brain functions. These victims are known as mind slaves. Although they are captives, their actions and thoughts are completely controlled by the Tyranids.If the ship is attacked, the mind

40k – Genestealer Cult Neophytes

Genestealer Cult is one of my favorite armies in the Warhammer 40,000. It has an excellent climate, beautiful models and strong support from the publisher. In today’s entry I would like to present you a lot of models of Neophytes. It is a basic unit in the ranks of mysterious organizations, which hide inside the imperial worlds. Armed with rifles, drills and lasers, in the climax of the moment they will strike the positions of the Emperor’s loyal forces to support Tyranids attack. I invite you to view the extended gallery below. There is one more post ahead of us before the final! Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com OR message on Facebook

40k – Genestealer Cult / Broodlord and Aberrants

One of our old jobs that’s still worth showing for. This is part of a large army of Genocult, whose units you could see in the previous posts. There are two more posts ahead of us, in which you will see Neophyte troops and a showcase of the whole army. On the photos you can see a large group of Aberrants and another Broodlord. The orange and purple scheme fits perfectly with these models and highlights all the cool details prepared by Games Workshop I hope you will like the miniatures. In June you can expect an entry every two days so stay tuned! Commission painting services – minisforwar@gmail.com OR message on Facebook

Genestealer Cult - The Saviour

The blessed ones are revered by the Wyrm-Forged, as it should be. They are purity of form made manifest, unburdened by the weaknesses of mankind. They are, in the whole, aloof, and unconcerned by the travails of their lesser brethren. However, some do appear to favour their kin more than others, none more so than the one known as the saviour.The Yogoth kin are well known among the Kabeiri. Many of their number bearing the unmistakable mark of the coiled hunter. (This variant of genestealer is known as the Ymgarl strain to the adepts of the Ordo Xenos.) This particularly strong trait is even known to appear in the 3rd generation. The Saviour is broodfather to the current cycle of the Yogoth, and through some quirk of the gene-cycle is uncharacteristically protective of its hybrid offspring. So much so that it famously interposed itself between its great-grandson, Eldir, and the plasma pistol of Inquisitor Krasek. Leaping in front of the gush of plasma, one of the saviour's arms was incinerated in the blas

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 […]
