The next big project: 2 months of conversion & paint

I do love to convert.  As much as I enjoy painting, I think it's the building & converting of a project that I love the most. So it should be a nice busy couple months until March.  Next of the big projects for a client is a full 40k army.  Been awhile since I've done anything for 40k, so that should be fun for that too... although I do have some "40k-compatible projects" of my own that wait on the back burner, patiently snug in their blanket of thick soup skin... someday Draniki and Orks.. someday.

The next project is an infested, DNA-compromised Genestealer Cult army.  Have plans for mildly tainted planetary guard and the psychic fellows are nearly completely gene-overwritten, even the vehicles will have organic growth on them. Colors and bases chosen to work with the client's existing army, which has the classic Tyranid colors.

Here is a test piece: one of the psychers.


Lots of kit-bashing, converting and sculpting for January, followed by a whole lot of painting in February.

Woah! nice. is that total greenstuff ? what bits are used here ?

This one isn't converted- the conversion minis will come later: vehicles & human troopers. This one is an alien from Urban War on a Micro Art Studio base. I tend to prefer bases that blend with the table-environment myself, but I have to admit that the alien-theme base looks quite cool with this alien.

Wicked mate - I'd love to do something like that for my Space Hulk genestealers, including some hybrids

Thanks Paul!
If you're thinking of Space Hulk, these bases would be ideal..

Sounds cools. Always love to see Genestealer cult themed armies. Will there be a limo?

Impcommander said...

I didn't know that, its been so very long since i've looked at Urban War. I hope there's a limo lol. Regardless still very nice job

Laughing Ferret said...

I did try to suggest a limo, but unfortunately there won't be one. Guess it doesn't really fit the theme of the army as it is. I could see making a genestealer cult skirmish force for myself some day, and including a limo as an apc for it :)

Whenever I visualised a Stealer Cult, I always saw them with a stolen rhino or leman russ covered in cult-appropriate paint splatters and hand-painted symbols.

Come to think of it, a rhino would be a pretty swish limo :)
