I thought it would be nice if people would post some photo's of their cult in one thread (not obligatory of course).

I've just started building them, no paint yet.
I'll post mine in this thread as soon as I've got something to show.

So, if you've already finished stuff...please share 8-)

Just one model is cool too Vonny

Moving house put the hobby on pause for a while...

I just finished de-moldlining all cult models.
Going to glue stuff together today and maybe even spray a bit.

The magos screams for attention :)

I will try to remember to post pictures of mine tonight. When the box first came out I had to assemble/prime them for a tournament in a weeks time but since then I have had them painted by someone because I am terrible with real skin so I paint all my nids, but not humanoids like the cult or my guard...

Good work Pekel.
I really like the jungle theme. Quite different from often seen mining surrounding.

Pekel! My god! You can paint skin that isn't green!

Just kidding, brother. Well, I'm happy to see this diversion from your standard scheme, so partially kidding. Your cultists look AMAZING!

Here are my own contributions. I've sworn for years that once GW released plastic greatcoat guard, I would convert up my stealer cult.
And then GW went and release stealer cult models. It forced my hand.

However, I've been a bit disappointed with how everyone I see on the net is painting their cultists in pretty much the same scheme from the box.

HOW BORING.

Well, I decided to base my own scheme on the Sun Hunters from Guillermo Del Toro's vampire series, The Strain—which should be mandatory viewing for any nid/stealer fan. I figured that Vampirism spreading like a modern plague is a perfect analog for what a stealer cult would look like.
Also, I've always wanted to paint some black-ops looking miniatures, and I figured the all-black-with-red-hood Sun Hunters uniform would serve well for my stealer cult.
The greenish skin is also inspired by the strain, though I've gone a little more green.

Here's hoping you like them:

Hey,
those are some really nice cultist.>
Black and red is such a strong combination.
The green skin is a bit to green for me. But still awesome.

I like the eavy metal paint scheme, but i allways tried to find my own schemes. So its allways great so see different versions by other painters.
Mine are still unpainted, but the scheme is in my head.
