Title: A Genestealer Cult project
Post by: Suber on February 06, 2018, 11:49:58 AM
Never underestimate my ability to get entangled in more projects that I can deal with! :D

This story begins (as usual) years ago, when I got the new Space Hulk... and never went further than storaging the box since then :'(. That never prevented me from getting the Overkill game and... well, you can guess it :P :'(

Anyway, that's enough! I've put my hands on these four armed gentlemen. I've started with the Space Hulk Genestealers. I decided to paint all of them in a row, as I find it easier and less exhausting.

(http://oi64.tinypic.com/2i09atx.jpg)

After spending some time deciding what colours would best fit them, I finally opted for a kind of classic approach. Blue for the chitinous parts then; but for the fleshy parts I didn't want straight purple, so I mixed it with flesh tones. That gives them a more natural feeling and will help me to tie these minis with the Hybrids from Overkill.

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/24exrar.jpg)

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/2lj3yfa.jpg)

In this kind of projects I always tend to make slight conversions. Repositioning arms, swapping heads... But this time I just painted them, it was the only way of having them finished and keeping sanity ;D. I don't think any conversion work would have been noticed among this whirlwind of claws and jaws anyway.

You can find them here (https://oldschoolworkshop.blogspot.com.es/2018/02/four-hands-work.html) as well.

These will be part of a wider project, so I'll be updating this thread as the Cult grows...

They look spectacular! I love the subtle purple in the skin tones. The bold blue carapace highlighting works really well too.

A scary bunch of apex predators.

Yep, those look great :)

What colour are you going to go for with regard to cultist uniforms? Orange would contrast superbly :)

The Cult has started! Those four armed people now have someone who worship them. Here you have the Magus:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/yyncoRZEee7tOmyoWE7y_UU4f-BVF_Rd9aDEfMsPGPoBXCRhX0A2N9xX-Rix_axbqagVKLbf=s0-d)

The robes had to be garnished to make his position evident in the Cult. Maybe too much curtain-like, but who am I to judge about fashion within Genestealers.

The Genestealer Primus is quite different, as he is supposed to be the military leader of the uprising miners, so he is more like one of them:

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/17Aq49ZYF7Jbr8KJcJv-F28pKkpcorWx6tL-YsLaQ9wMLM8FKUXxhkPjEON27AkDgXOPxddV=s0-d)

There are two familiars in the command sprue. As I have not read the Overkill rulebook, I have no idea of their purpose in the game. Tiny Genestealer Gollums, I an work with that for the moment:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/cAevjqoLUx5YPwBNqjMMMhAgdVvJE0yTU9iaa3EdQ9dXShnluSROiqXCFA_UWwnBLZxTySaa=s0-d)

So this is the first installment in the Cult itself:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/1GXd_y5ZVFjnpaWWqVsw_MIaERiZIo591O7Vn3L-WxxAwWho3GYAlFjr7P__VrxFyRfaqiJP6w=s0-d)

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/J96laeCPAgvSy3WgXaGtOCOImzikn4AUf81iSgeGURw9aj6IobWF_gTRJAwZpVgimakP5KaNXA=s0-d)

You can have another glpimpse to them on the blog (https://oldschoolworkshop.blogspot.com.es/2018/02/the-cult-rises.html), but I'm about to show more Hybrids quite soon :)

Excellent! :-*

It was always one of those things I always wanted to do, was make a Genestealer Cult. I donít play 40k any more, but. May still do it one day!

Yours looks great!

Funny enough before i looked at their site, i looked at your pic and thought "how do i get a second axel of wheels in the back?"
Oh easy enough, i buy the one with the extra set of wheels in the back instead of the one above.  :-)

That car looks awesome indeed! However, I'm taking a whole different path this time. I'm sticking to the mining concept. These people don't live in the city, but hide in the mine, generally hidden from the rest of the population. I thought that, if they had some portable mining lasers, wouldn't they need some bigger lasers to open new tunnels and stuff?

(http://oi65.tinypic.com/2qwj4p1.jpg)

Well, it is in quite an early stage. My first idea was an ordinary drilling machine. The Hades Drill from ForgeWorld would have been perfect, but the price disencouraged me given the little use I would have for it. The mining laser looked like a decent option instead. It's just a Sentinel cockpit, a Humvee rear part and a Tiger I cannon. The structure to hold it all together is plain cardboard.

I'm currently adding bits and bobs to give it a proper sci-fi vibe. Some pics soon, I hope :)
Title: Re: A Genestealer Cult project
Post by: Suber on February 26, 2018, 11:03:43 PM
About that vehicle I was talking about...

First thing, I needed an operator, so I used the Sentinel pilot...

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/jGjoykgJSklPGZsdRFjjGCUEmdKcV_3-pqxWNROOpKeWK8FkgO7GPhyRsmWx66_X-hLdRFUrvQ=s0-d)

Then I built the main hull. The pieces you saw the other day with cardboard for the main structure and any random piece I could come up with.

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/jo_qdlOVmhfcafbf4Xewyf7bQi-7YdK8C814e2o1QmKd5WpTyPNITr9HTApgpSI_nRtX6VJU2w=s0-d)

My problem with this is that it resembled too much a WH40K tank. You know, a tiny brick with a ridiculously oversized gun :-X

So I made some arrangements to make it look like a laser drilling machine. Bits, wires and stuff.

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/ZndJlV6MiXHIu0-a86j95TU8lxe1eJgxdnTh6W01VqL3AFO2bULQmVXucfPxjgpoCX6rv7uqqQ=s0-d)

Then it was all a matter of yellow...

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/ka88ShFO-wvPSdL6xRvUY6wDuml7brmlnxySlQiayE0oYZZHgqE3rwio63mjCI1F2CtuqV4Ufg=s0-d)

Before I talk about building anything, let me just post the rest of the minis of the Cult...

Aberrants. Best kit I've seen in a while:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/yNNyQ231BpRBTPhh8qozoboxWMIygjkhrf9ilccUg5iXmPpBROCNxD4ExdRT9qoI940uQTiVVQ=s0-d)

Two different bodies and two different sets of arms, but they fit in indistinctly in such a way that you can build four totally different minis. Simply perfect.

Not much to say about the rest. Purestrains:

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/gTDx30TEBpYDLwr4ZUMLJyzuwSMu-1Npw2D_Ox_ySsB_sxF2AIjT-Q_4UC-AnOODW3t85A_E=s0-d)

And first/second generation Hybrids:

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/SH94ZJBGhajTMxaF9hhjTbkruiJocbq2amOQM2FMkBAiAaDP_q6V-co8i-KFkbRicfKdqphr=s0-d)
(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/8F9mcRKBzPnYUDLa199cke1mI1LL0FS9_XXrSMX6MIN5wOTlThnjJos5A4ZkEU5O631noBlF=s0-d)

I tend to confuse both. I've been told to have a look at their feet or their head ridges to be sure :?

So here you have the (five generations) family pic:

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/3Qwpy1TjBt85bRRlaRuhlAugHpaimTSVTvFGX84NrkRPnKtEQkkCXpMngN_zO1_tJZvDCMXrOw=s0-d)


https://oldschoolworkshop.blogspot.com.es/2018/03/creating-cult-culture.html

But now... there is a Patriach missing!

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/5iDSYV98vKjPzO-UmtWxS-mm78JVylvnHb37xIKTCDoUr0a48pQACyB0V11KMUreNoyCFkxNnw=s0-d)

Any respectable Patriarch needs a worthy throne, it is known. But I do not have one... Or do I?

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/kJNSiwvDzKLIWNfwgvcAOyKIaEeUNcx_3AWXckvbHr0EMW4Q5qZwBoyOSrvR36z_0drwC0KNUQ=s0-d)

I have all the scenery from the GW Hobbit box, so I think it is time to put it into use ;)

Which leads me to...

Surely you make a board like the film set of Total Recall(the original)? The sleazy side of the mars colony?
Ooo, that'd be great  8)

Wow, gentlemen, I won't pretend I'm even close to the standards of any of you, but your encouragement is tremendously appreciated! I'm planning to build a humble modular mine, just a few corridors and rooms. A place where the Cult lives underground, halfway between abandoned catacombs and a tech-mine. Some kind of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom meets Total Recall ;D

 Oh, just dreaming. This is way beyond my skills. In fact I think it would be better if I commissioned any of you to build a mine... or why not both? A joint project involving you two is a thing we all in LAF would love to see ::)

Post by: Suber on April 13, 2018, 11:25:39 PM
It has certainly taken me much longer than expected, but at  least I can show you some progress. I told you about a Patriarch on a throne, so let's see the Patriarch:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/YUDzE_5oJn_5GKm8lI3iixA3VvBS3SPIw96OW5IsATtRxp7peJ4fz47f3wKbK5IghqRgHTwJpw=s0-d)

Just a sexy belly and a repositioned hand to make him look like he's blessing his breed.

Now onto the throne room itself. It's all about foamboard...

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/fU8vWBrBJxcFVOkRSjZTqxr06jxHudrwcGBPEGQRjKjhicRpzPw-Wrwje7ElEtOa5ckwsX-S=s0-d)

...and Das putty to make it look like bare, irregular stone, in accordance with the large rock to which the throne is attached.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/bJQaXP3pake6fqJ_NM07qQ1mzmuqgHkhtgJ5jCQD7hZLjh4CBTEOpqX-lFEJrnnWoj2IIiYeXg=s0-d)

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/APi8jdWkcbLntxgeV8s4aHPyvLGrFPnhaz4j509-xWQ-8LNOn8cUI1Q4zroAXLdtQGJMwSRr_g=s0-d)

Why did I enclose it, instead of doing three walls and leaving the fourth one for exposition? Because I didn't want a mere vignette. I'm that crazy and I'm seriously doing a full 3D board, a Space Hulk like dungeon, set in a mine or catacombs where the Genestealer Cult thrives underground o_o. So this is just but the first of many other rooms to come!

I originally painted it grey:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/fPVw29FuXaaTSaHYk7EQ8DPQCCRBsn23lqT-MygChlPlQ4bbK6DdPjHWVfFHsMWwXxgrP9N8=s0-d)

But then I realised I didn't like it, it was too gloomy if I was to build a whole set of corridors and rooms. So I tried browns and beiges, and I liked it better:

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/0ea-HA5UFn6bcn1Qaj3OHZrzH4NEaO5DY-MbFiQIPmB7ZT8FSwThn-wxLo-4_r0C3IdDq5Ej=s0-d)

Once I had the basic structure, I thought of the details. What can one do with a 1cent coin and a plastic bead?

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/VqDn6J-1_sxFyxS9cwXUoSqKnVxXZBOxhs-dL03Yx7fw_OpbIyGcJqhaS63rg-E8MwTio0fwgQ=s0-d)

The obvious answer is: add greenstuff!

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/iMgIVlcMoyrz3UQuK-V1-x60Bf0s4RO4XrS8aWkwfLLI0rPn9qvrGISxfo4KwYhIyMM70F1Gfw=s0-d)

Then build an idol:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/atX0CisJ3taXiA1MrGI_VzCoZnuhX2khQggV6oA15UhqNKnxEDnpr2BARZM4ulHoVZTRqoNJww=s0-d)

A golden Idol any adventurer archaeologist may steal. Ahem.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/748Nbh4CPD_Qpn8jXU9n2r7ijGxORDhpd4WKBfiuq5ew-_MuwwV6ENm43rrFYayE7-9yYkfOGA=s0-d)

What else did I get for the walls? Tapestries and banners, Genestealer fashion :D

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/FQwFgy6UyfHgDDZXX4AgLZuOgLX5Irfo1M1I_-QLpFgWrdOW1Y3J7CYMZRcSvFNBIb_c1r0q7w=s0-d)

This last one will cover the secret door behind the throne (for a proper throne room must have a secret door!)

Let's see it all:

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/oFB8RmXNCFVu2rISjpOcwdre8LBSoxJGLQT6SRsLCh76Kzf9Lg44zFKKgOpdQnxRWrnOClnVbQ=s0-d)

I have already started another room, but I have plenty of work to do on it until I can show something. I have a couple of ideas for new rooms, but I guess I'll develop the dungeon as I build it. So wish me luck!

Brilliant!
I adore the Throne Room, and love what you have done with the place.
I am sure I have that throne somewhere to....

What I love most of all, though, is the wonderful idol.
Top notch!
Beats a Terry Chocolate Orange any day....  ;)

I love a Stealer Cult, absolutely.
Something that I never got around to either.
But I am NOT going to do it, I just do not have time.

Yet....

I shall just admire yours for the next few years or so.

Thank you all! The basic shape and stuff is quite simple, but the details took longer than the room itself.

You are totally right, now that you mention, it looks quite obvious to me. Thank you, I'll solve that!

Where is the patriarch model from? Space Hulk box or just a regular GW creation.

It's the one from the Overkill box:

It's taken me some time, but I have a second room for my Genestealer dungeon ;D. I wanted to use the rest of the Hobbit core box scenery, so I needed to build a proper space. Foam board and 1 Kg of Das (yes, I used a full kilo set ;D)

(http://oi65.tinypic.com/2ptdmgy.jpg)
(http://oi64.tinypic.com/9gavjb.jpg)

You will see it better with some paint on...

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/1zf4lnd.jpg)

The idea is having a large hall with small caverns around, where the Genestealers and the Hybrids dwell and hide from the Imperial society on the surface until the moment arrives.

(http://oi63.tinypic.com/2i7ww49.jpg)

Next stage was painting the wooden platforms:

(http://oi63.tinypic.com/dy4mxf.jpg)

This is the basic disposition:

(http://oi68.tinypic.com/2e56vq9.jpg)
(http://oi64.tinypic.com/206iuxz.jpg)

Unfortunately I don't have all the rubbish I would have liked to deploy in my bits box. Well, less is more:

I don't know how I am going to store them :?

Title: Re: A Genestealer Cult project
Post by: Suber on June 14, 2018, 11:15:59 PM
Thank you!
I really want the rooms to have four walls when possible. I pretend the dungeon to be immersive, oppressive; that the Space Marine player feels suffocated, as you might expect from a Space Hulk :D. I will necessarily have to break the fourth wall (quite literally) for some of the rooms I have in mind, but I'll build the four walls whenever it is feasible. I believe that the fact of having the platforms and caves both sides in this large room reflects the atmosphere I want to achieve.
I'd like to explore the 3D aspect and build an abandoned mine/catacombs/whatever with two or three levels, but that involves a degree of planification I haven't even started yet to think about! :D
Title: Re: A Genestealer Cult project
Post by: Suber on July 29, 2018, 09:54:46 PM
After having a couple of rooms, I now needed some corridors for the dungeon. I took the easy path, just foamcore and Das putty:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/q0Y_rsBXDAc_It4y0G_FJ2pO7CsLDaPaKTCfxhP9pwQ8aoqfwWSR1l2vRjVjyeJmGL7pqzS43A=s0-d)

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/yKyuEFanEpQdrAYt9AlYSAKIiRNhULvky0XpltC1j9ogFHbblHZaPSQxvPcxHle_dKvtBKDS=s0-d)

I stuck to the mine vibe, so they all are irregular, just excavated on the rock and with girders to underpin the structure. I took it one step further and dared to paint some decorations on the walls. Some kind of ancient language, only used by the Cult, to add this kind of ritual sense to the thing.

(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/kqUFY4Oo4WXsNLQTMeP4PZ3HBeT_K0UAwlIcPdLMQ-d74Z1kjSp8FU0M-Qf2BBRJATj6pomx6g=s0-d)

This is all I have for the moment:

The corridors are really narrow. But that's the whole point of it, these are not the Mines of Moria, just catacombs, mines and abandoned underground places. I think this is how a Space Hulk like board should feel, suffocating and uneasy. The Space Marine player must really feel anguish every turn (that's what metagame means for me, not that other absurd meaning people use ;D)

Back to the underground maze, I noticed a thing. If this belongs to a Genestealer Cult, it of course needed the defining element of any cult, i.e., a church or a chapel. So I cut some foamboard and put DAS clay putty on it. I used these templates from MiniWorlds (https://www.miniworlds-store.com/index.html), which turned to be a good decision:

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/proxy/oCn9eFQRpGPFXM1W4c0D21Atzf8WT3_JHci23yAnkLXiEclj6NrrW-DY0AGp4U0oEGhMxs6-=s0-d)

The putty was a little bit dry (bad storage, my fault), so I had to add water. Funny thing is that in the end, the putty being not in optimal condition was an advantage, as the final texture was better indeed, like old, eroded stone. The main bulk of it was like this:

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/lOmonYvZq2lul0nnZYTSMrJCt2yboqyLQLmu9150LfEp65haC3rXnXu_cDIPylurXaQR-kV2nw=s0-d)

Now for the chapel itself I designed this banner or tapestry. The motto reads "Peace. Concord. Arms" :D Oh, yes, of course it is a perfect Imperial Eagle. No, sir, there is nothing suspicious about it, I don't know what you mean.

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/Mu0M2sy4t6LH1OJ4KyxJldWGGqtp-ffUfVpSANl5F8oPmjzojuV2bwcpOTQGZOAp1P6jXEtFMA=s0-d)

The other elements are mainly from Thomarillion:

(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/_9bYzSzD0I_Pbg2p4bqeBn3BdwIj3oYD8JaeFJ0XW6BTV6AxUr-FRNbmaA4xJAMrVrYTuVC-=s0-d)

This project is alive! ;D

Good old chap Mason was incredibly generous and handed me over a good deal of corridos by Sally 4th. Thank you, sir! Much appreciated, really!

(http://oi65.tinypic.com/2e1ejx5.jpg)

I have no excuses, it has taken me much longer than it should, but anyway here it is. First of all, I had to prepare the whole thing to make the corridos look like a mine:

(http://oi64.tinypic.com/mhesuf.jpg)

(http://oi68.tinypic.com/2qce48w.jpg)

This time I used DAS putty first and painted later, not like my previous work:

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/2w3nfj5.jpg)

It was a matter of compromise. Had I painted the xeno grafitti first and then asembled it all, it would have taken me ages. I really needed to achieve some results:

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/2aj5lt.jpg)

(http://oi66.tinypic.com/35cn0xx.jpg)

Once we have reached this point, please let me a little bit of philosophy (or maybe even theology). What's the distinctive element in the Genestealer Cult? That they are... well, a Cult. Religion plays a central role, as it does on Warhammer 40,000 in general. Political dissent is shown by religion (which is quite a thing to think about!)
What else is important? Breeding. Think of it. The Cult expands not only by infecting new victims (in a vampire style fashion), but by nurturing Hybrids in a process that literally takes generations. So... why have we never seen religious representations of fertility/growth/motherhood/whatever? It may play a pretty important role in the expansion of the Cult. But we only see the Patriarch and the Magus. Well, not anymore. Such an important element has to be represented. I thought of classical (ancient) fertility goddesses, in a primitive way, from the Venus of Willendorf to Tanith/Astartť:

(http://oi66.tinypic.com/144g90.jpg)

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/6i9t12.jpg)

So I finally sculpted this tiny abomination:

(http://oi67.tinypic.com/6zn4hd.jpg)


I built an improvised altar or shrine for her. A spontaneous place of meeting, in which expecting mothers pray for a good pregnancy and a healthy new generation of hybrids; a place where you can lit up a candle and place pics of your missing or lost relatives, victims of the Imperial scum on the surface, and where you leave farewell letters or improvised poems:

(http://oi64.tinypic.com/2a4quis.jpg)

With this latest silly idea, this is my Genestealer dungeon so far:

(http://oi66.tinypic.com/2ykx7w9.jpg)

This has opened some doors for me. I would like to explore other representations of deity, in that 'subversion through religion' concept, not only the classical medieval European view of religion. Hmmm... lot of work ahead :P

Besides, 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...
