Genestealer Cult Sentinels

More Genestealer Cult vehicles, this time, close ups of the sentinels from the LPL8.

I took the infestation to a more significant level with these.  In the post about making these I talked about how I thought of them as similar to hermit crabs.  A brain with tentacles that finds discarded tyranid creature carapaces to protect itself, but in this case, they found some much better protection.. and it moves!
and it fires giant laser cannons!  Oh happy tentacled brains!

I tried to give as much movement as possible in the posing.  It's a pretty static kit, I wanted to get them moving a bit faster than a slow-plod.

Just 2 more vehicle types remaining, then I'll see about getting a big army shot.

There will likely be more vehicles in the future, since the project is going to be extended.

More to come!

Woof, woof, woof! Superb Sir, by far my favourite to date. It is the sneaky peak of the brain just visible above their new carapace that does it for me.

The tentacled brains are most inspired and just perfect! You have really outdone yourself with this commission !!!

Might be all the TMNT I am watching with my son these days, but it instantly reminded me of Krang and his big armored suit.. or the ones that he continues to try to steal!

Looking great all the same ;)
