I guess I should be saying here why I chose the army for this log, what is the fluff behind it, etc. But, I simply can not be bothered, so I’ll go straight to the piccies:
Genestealer Cult Magus (for now)
Same thingy but from different angle
I’ll try and do both a Nid army and a Genestealer Cult army at the same time, as well as my Daemons and possibly my Halloween army as well…
Anyways, thoughts anyone?
Omg its davy jones!!! So what did you use as a head Evil Clown???
i like that sooooooooooooooo much
He who shall not be named is pleased, but says you need to adjust the focus a bit…
Looking good. I thought you had a slightly different idea I say your background and fluff and reasoning should be: because you wanted to and it’s cool etc
Cthulhu is never out of style!!! I like it!! I too, would like to know what you are using as the head bit. It looks like a lictor head, but its plastic? I didn’t think there were any lictor plastics, so now I’m curious… I could put that bit to good use.
It’s the head of a genestealer.
After some research, it looks like its a feeder tentacle upgrade for a genestealer which is why I could never see it, unless I was looking at the sprue itself. So, you only get 2 of those heads per genestealer box?
As the magus is supposed to be the cult’s contact person to the wider public, I would stick to the bald-head style for him and give the cthulhuid appearance to the patriarch instead. But the idea behind the army seems nice.
Cheers for the comments, folks:cheers
@ GRNDL: Yeah unfortunately, there are indeed only two of such heads in the Genestealer box… which is why I’m now sculpting those tentacles myself (pics coming soon).
@ wallacer::o Must…have…cool…model!! I’m looking on that site now (of Horrorclix), and they do seem to make lotsa cool stuff… Kinda surprised I didn’t know of that before… Cheers a lot!:cheers
@ Ishkur Cinderhat: I know, I had considered that, but this the Magus in battle - revealing his true form. Plus, it would be remiss NOT to have the leader be a Cthulhu-ish creature himself IMO:)
I’ll hopefully post more pics later today.
Well the patriarch is the actual leader of the cult anyway… the magus is merely his minion. Which rules set are you gonna use for this army?
That model is mostly only available on eBay I think nowadays as it was a ComicCon exclusive. I managed to snag one through a local retailer who could pull strings and it is a beautiful model. Not quite to scale for 40k though, unless you need a Bio-Titan!
It’s update time! I made some more tentacle faces, although in this case, I made them meself - so obviously, the quality isn’t as good as the official model, but it’s good practise nonetheless:)
Anyway, just scroll down a bit and ignore the Space Pigs:
Do you fear Death?
@ Ishkur: I have a Cult list on my pc, the one from a White Dwarf ages ago I think:)
The magus looks awfully familiar.
Knight Of Awsome:
wow, thats some cool genestealer you got there. Have fun making the largest army every!
I think I’ll call him 'Spidey’
Pic’s a but blurry, but you get the idea.
Looking good. Especially spidey. The one I love most though, is the one devoruing someone’s head with the tentacles
@wallacer: OMG I think I just found my new daemon prince of Nurgle
He so cute i like spidey.
You just made the “nids” more cool than I ever thought they’d be Love the idea of a Genestealer Cult - Cthulhu style Keep 'em coming! I’d like to see some cultists with hoods and tentacles… any plans for that maybe?? By the way, I just noticed that these guys have a Cthulhu-like standard (maybe you can use it for something):
