18mm Cultists
« on: July 28, 2022, 12:55:33 PM »
These are from Duncan Shadow .
Very nice minis & in parts so would be great for 28mm games like Silver bayonet.
I got parts from other models so as to make them more modern as the minis are equipped for fantasy ( e.g. bows ) though the knives can be used in any setting.
Again as I said before, I print 18mm as whole minis. Quite like how they came out & will do more with daggers & an Hmg, perhaps.
The metal mini is an 18mm GZG model.

Nice work on these guys, you can't have too many cultists as fodder, I say.
Just remember "If the Enemy is in range, so are YOU!

Wow!  Is the cultist pointing his weapon upward also a 3D print?

Z, are you making these with integrated bases, or gluing them on after the fact?

Thank you my friends,

WM, indeed you can never have enough especially after the Holy Inquisition gets its hands on them  ;) Must do more of them.
Especially with hand CC weapons & flaming torches ( obviously )  ;D

Yes Dan, if you zoom in you'll see the print lines. He does have a great face.

Cook, I used to but not anymore, I use resin for minis & PLA ( if I need bases quickly ) for bases. These are PLA, 19 or 20mm diameter.

have a great weekend

I am working on having different colored cultist, I like to have a mix of cults however there are times when to factions collide or join forces that your group have to deal with.

That sounds like a good idea WM
I am doing horde type opponents , bit by bit.
Just to have a sizeable amount & variety which can be used at one go, then just reuse the dead ones.

These are ready (or almost ready).

Scifi Zombies,
Tyranid type aliens,
Killer Robots ( various types & still ongoing )
Insects large & swarms.
Herbivore herd.
Goons.

These are still to be done
Cultists,
Necron type scarabs swarms,
Feral raptors,

Any ideas for more variations ?

Do you have any pack type animals like wolves? Or any large beast? I don't know what rules you may be looking at to use them in. However, there is a shortage of large type beast IMO in 15mm range.

Like those of Blue Moons beasty hordes



By the way I need a set of those.  lol

You could do a sci-fi version of Werewolves and Vampires or some form of Necromancers Oh how about Cyborgs! I have always wanted to do a group of failed attempts of Cyborgs like these.



Imagine trying to clear out a spaceship, outpost or spaceport full of those guys!

Well, I hope those ideas help some

Thanks Doodler :D

WM
Those look great when painted, hadn't seen them before.


I think I can mix in wolfmen , could also try to make some with brownstuff.

Cyborgs? I suppose one can mix human + mechanicum but I do have these painted up from micropanzer & these ( not painted yet ) from Alternative armies which should fit the bill.





The thralls/cyborg would look nice with blue grey skin, I think ....

Are those the Pico Armor guys or the Khurasan Minis ones?

Hello again all,
here are pics of more minis.
Some with a CCW ,



1 with an HMG



Added 2 more preachers of the word , one is being transformed into a creature from another dimension/warp ( result could be random - from a squirming tentacle to a fully fledged demon. The demon is a fantasy metal mini.













25 minis in all should be enough as opposition for any hero / band....

Dan those are ghouls originally made by O8 now if I'm not mistaken sold by Pico.
They have a nice set of Vatican fighters, also, which would make great antagonists for the cultists. These


Thanks for your comments

Thanks

Hey Dan,
That's a very old ( 1980's or 90's ?) Grenadier Cthulhu Nyarlathotep , finally painted.. ;) :D
The lead mountain being chipped at, a bit at a time. ;)

Painting resin minis is nice but metal ones are heftier & I prefer them.
