Genestealer Cult: Specialist Neophytes

I painted some more hybrids to go with my shotgunners for potential Necromunda shenanigans.

Nothing says 'Necromunda gang' like a heavy stubber, and I was really happy with this hybrid in his Bane mask. I added a few cartridges on the ground out of plastic rod.

This hybrid will be my leader. I have a weak spot for chainswords with hazard stripes, because health and safety.

I love template weapons because I don’t have to roll to hit. This specialist with a flamer carries a spare orange fuel canister on his back.

I gave this guy a seismic cannon, which I like to think is a nod to the Rogue Trader/ Confrontation D-cannon. It jiggles you to death at a subatomic level.

  2. Nice work mate. I can't help myself with the hazard stripes either. Love the silliness of the whole thing.

  5. I can think of fewer deaths that I would prefer to being jiggled at a subatomic level.

    These guys are up to your high standard - vibrant colours, great detail, lots of character. I agree that the heavy subber is an oddly attractive weapon in 40K. As I recall from my Rogue Trader days, it's not a bad weapon either. I mean, it won't jiggle anyone to death, but still.

  6. Great additions to the Cult. Nice use of the traditional colours without looking too garish. They look suitably grim & sinister.

    1. I just can’t cope with the non-traditional colours. Blue and purple FTW!
