Genestealer hybrids Part 2

The first and second generation hybrids are more bestial than the third and fourth generation, and all have extra limbs. The second generation have lost the forehead crest and have more humanoid feet. They are armed with autopistols and blades, and some have acquired xenos blades.

Aberrants are the outcome of errors in replication. A brutish addition to the genestealer cult stable, they are armed with mining tools.

I've only got a few figures to go to complete the cult, but a few distractions as well, so it may not be finished until next month.

  1. Every bit as impressive as the last batch mate.

  2. Very nice - excellent painting. The flesh tones work really well, & the overall colour scheme is striking without being garish.

  3. These looks excellent. What colours did you use? any chance of a guide?

    1. Thank you! I use a grey primer. I paint the clothes Army Painter Wolf Grey, then a very very dark blue (out of production...) on the carapace, and Vallejo Panzer Grey on the boots and gloves, the AP Gunmetal to the metal. Then a black wash with AP Dark Tone. I highlight the clothes and carapace with AP Wolf Grey and AP Ice Storm. The purple cloth is VJ Red Violet with an AP Purple Tone wash. The armour is highlighted AP Ash Grey. Then I paint the skin and pick out the details. The skin is a flesh/ purple mix with VJ Flesh Wash and then highlighted. Hope that helps!

    2. Thank you deeply, I didn't expect a reply, let alone a reply so soon. Good luck in all you do and, once again, perfect paint scheme.

    3. Happy to help a fellow cultist!
