Yet another installment on the Genestealer Cult, but quite a decisive one this time. After the laser drilling machine I thought I had enough strenght to get back to the Hybrids. I had the 1st and 2nd generation ones left, and just like it happened with the 3rd-4th generation ones, I have to conclude the minis are superb, beyond measure, but terribly mind-exhausting to paint in a row. However, I think it's the only way I could have ever finished them. And so I have done!
First thing, the Aberrants:
|The noun is quite self-explanatory, but you better don't call them that in their faces|
Best kit design ever. There are two different bodies and two different sets of arms. But they combine so perfectly each other that you can build these four gentlemen who look totally different. Right, check the photo. The sets of arms fit in both bodies to achieve complete different minis. Chapeau.
Now a couple of Purestrain Genestealers:
|Now you can meet your cousins from Space Hulk|
I have to confess I have some problems with 1st and 2nd generation Hybrids. First generation ones are supposed to resemble more the Purestrains, while second generation ones should have more human features. Sorry, pals, these all look the same to me. Three arms, jaws, big heads...
|So I've taken these two pics with random models|
|I'll let you choose which generation does each one belong to|
I may be skipping something obvious, but for the moment I'll just say this is the Generation X of the Cult. Hmm, some identity crisis...
But the important thing is that I can now take a family pic!
|Family pic indeed. There are at least five generations of the family here. What do you mean 'endogamy'?|
So this is the whole proj... Oh, no. No way. The sharpest among you may have noticed there is a very important mini missing in the photo. Right, the Patriarch...
But of course I already have a Patriarch from the Space Hulk game, I have no need for another one. Or do I? Well, given that I have a mini set for game, I believe I can dare to do something with the Patriach from the Overkill box.
|I mean, I have this plastic mini, so prone to conversion...|
What does any respectable Patriarch have? I don't know, let's browse some pics over the internet...
|You don't see it? Need a clue?|
|What about now?|
Oh, a throne! It would be great if I only had a thr... Oh, wait. I got that Hobbit starter set. I painted the Dwarves, and I also used the Goblins for another project... But the whole scenery is still in its sprues. So in fact...
|I do have a throne!|
Oh, this project is so far from being finished... ;)
