You may think I have abandoned my Genestealer Cult project (and I could not blame you!) but it's not the case at all! I have been working on today's minis for some time, but only now I've been able to finish them.
Loong time ago a friend of mine gave me three WHFB Ogres. He had tried to make WH40K Ogryns, but had never gone beyond kitbashing and priming them. My original idea was making some bulky Ork Nobz out of them, but I never really committed to the project. Then, a few weeks ago, I suddenly envisioned what I could really do with such minis. Hybrid Ogryn Genestealers (or is it Ogryn Hybrid Genestealers? Genestealer Hybrid Ogryns? Hmmm...)
The base was there, I only had to give shape to what I really wanted to show. They should be part of the mining guys I already have, so some boring gear was in order. These guys should be tasked with heavy, simple duties, so they shouldn't look very hi-tech at all. Drillers, rock-cutting saws, stuff like that. With that in mind I got these:
|Some kind of pneumatic driller. Or something
|Rock pincers. Probably
|That's quite a saw!
This was also my chance to bring a fourth guy for the crew, a fantasy football big tough ogre by Hungry Troll I got as a deal some time ago:
|That's a saw from a Sentinel walker :D
No news colour-wise speaking, just the same scheme I had used for my previous Genestealer Cult minis:
|Regular skin with different shades of purple
|I tried to achieve more different skin tones, but failed
|However, I hope they work as they are
|Looks different from the others, but still in place. Let's say it's a 4th generation Hybrid
|All of them!
|Less impressive, but the enemies are not supposed to see thir rears
Here you can see them alongside an Aberrant (I guess I should use their rules?).
|Man, these guys are big
Down in the catacombs...
|I hope those scaffoldings resist!
BONUS! If these are arguably the biggest minis in thisGenestealer Cult project, I'm also bringing the smallest ones! I thought it would be fun for the Magus to have servo-skulls. Servo-skulls are quite an iconic element in WH40K since the beginning, and anyone slightly relevant in the Imperium has one. So if the Cult is somehow mimicking the Imperial structures, I thought it would be logical that the leaders wanted to have their own sign of position.
So I took a couple of servo-skulls and toyed with Gaunt skulls and greenstuff...
|There's a pin inside the cables
|So they can stand this way
|Awww, aren't they cute?
|Aye, pal, these give us... distinction
This is it for the moment. I don't really know what will be next, but I'll try to make sure it's also fun! :D
