Having a little more spending money then normal due to an inheritance, I caved in and started my cult. Got the codex, data cards, and box of neophytes and acolytes.

The photos will come once the stuff is all together. I ran out of glue lol :(

The core of my set is from buying the cult half of overkill off a friend, thus saving a lot of money buying those things separate. The neo/aco boxes are to finish up the units and get some bits for conversions.

With the Acolyte box, I was able to convert an iconward, add 3 more standard dudes to my overkill set, and make an icon carrier.

With my iconward conversion, I used a leftover Khorne standard from the fantasy juggernaut riders. Its got such a nice shape and its huge. I just gotta file off the khorne icon. I then cut the khorne icon off the top, and replace it with the icon from the neophytes. Then added those extra hybrid skulls and some charms thus making a crazy banner for my cult.

The Acolyte box is dumb expensive for 5 guys and I want to make some metamorphs. My solution is going to be using some un-built genestealers and using the metamorph bits on them, creating some strange mutant genestealers unique to my cult.

With the Neophyte box, I am building a shotgun team with a seismic cannon. I had to take one member of the overkill team and weapon swap a shotgun onto him to fill out the squad. Thus I will have the overkill long range guys with a close rang team.

With all these and my mass of genestealers that I already own, I should have a nice little cult to play with.

They're just ymgrrl stealers returned to the fold

Sounds great. I'm trying to decide what to do with the cult myself. I'm trying to avoid making them a horde army to some degree.

I was thinking along those lines too. May sculpt robes onto them too.

I think I got a theme down for my cult, based on the Ouroboros. For their altered icon I will have the wyrm symbol eating its tail. I'll add some wip fluff blurbs to the mini photos when I get to it.

Oooh that's a great idea and ties in so well with the lore. (b~_^)b

Picture time!

Here is my converted iconward. The Khorne icon will vanish once I sculpt over it, then I have a nice big space for some freehand. Fluff wise I figured he is very blessed by the stargods, as they believe he was born with the stargods visage. The two hybrid skulls on the side of the banner were the previous iconwards, so he is the 3rd one to take charge of the sacred tapestry. The other skulls belonged to high priority targets.

Next is the Primus and Magus. The Primus got a headswap, some reposing and a more menacing bonesword. The Magus is holding out a sacred skull of the cult.

And very WIP of the metamorphs, as they need ALOT of sculpting over. I'm only making 5 for now to see how it turns out.

And the rest of the gang. Acolytes with an icon, ranged support neophytes, and close quarters neophytes. Then the divine three who propagated the cult and the herpaderps in the back.

I like the very crazy custom metamorphs. I think they are going to be big winners in this codex. Taking them at I7 with 4 rending attacks on the charge and assault grenades... they will hurt things!

No rides for now. I'm not sure what I want to do there.

AMAZING work, KrewL!

I love that this is mostly just bits swaps. My favourite parts have to be the sword on the Prime, and the way the magus is holding a Genestealer skull.

I also really like your arm solutions for the Metamorphs with crushing claws. I assumed the fex crushing claw would be too big, but it doesn't seem so on yours.

Its a Pink :O Long time no see!

With the metamorph claws, they are the crushing claws from the Tyrant Guards.

Work on the cult has been slow, due to it being a bad time of year. My workplace has given me more shifts to work on xmas decor, so that's been eating up my free time and energy.

Those are some nifty 'Stealer conversions. Can't wait to see you paint them up. Are you going for the white, green and black of HIve FLeet Cicada?

Yeah, the fleshy bug bits and fancy robes/clothes will follow that scheme. The suits may be shades of brown.
