Time for another sporadic update. I've had a bit of a building and converting bug lately, so I've made some significant progress on that front.
Cult Truck update. I have added the "Rigged Systems" upgrade that turns it into a car-bomb, and added some extra armour plating and some inscribed weathering detail that will really only show up once I get to painting. One more of these and two gun trucks are yet to come for my planned 1500 point army.
Brood Brother Initiates. I really like these guys. They look nicely rag-tag and disorganized, and should provide quite an unusual challenge on the tabletop. Most swarms are on 40mm bases and roughly half the height of a human sized model. These guys take up more space, and block more line of sight, but they aren't Fearless like typical swarms (unless near the Patriarch or Magus). Should be fun!
Martyr Harness Detail - this little toy allows a nasty surprise up close, and allows them to be a bit of a suicide unit.
Magus w/ Force Stave - he still needs quite a bit of work, but the general idea should be apparent.
Hybrid Overseer w/ Rending Claw - OK, sue me. I love the Cultist leader model. He makes a GREAT base for a Genestealer Cultist. This one turned out pretty nicely - the pose makes him look like he is circling a foe, sizing them up, ready to slash them apart with his rending claw.
Hybrid Acolytes w/ Melta Guns - I converted these from cut-down flamers, adding bits from the IG Sentinel Heavy Plasma Cannon power plant for the fuel canisters. (I forgot to take a photo of them from behind, but they both also have a "cylinder in a pouch" bit hanging from their belts as extra ammo. They do need some green stuff work to add hoods and robes so they fit in withe the rest of their unit.
Hybrid Acolytes w/ Heavy Stubbers - pretty basic right now. They too need some hoods and robes sculpted to fit with the other Acolytes.
Zealot w/ Martyr Harness - This guy started life as a Gorkamorka Digga Yoof, but I figured he would make a perfect Zealot once loaded down with plenty of explosives.
Purestrain Firstborn - So far I've just added a few extended carapace bits. Not sure what else to do - I don't want to bulk him up too much, or he will end up competing with the Patriarch, but I want him to be easy to pick out of the crowd so you know who is who in the unit. Suggestions are appreciated.
