Genestealer Enforcers – Cult Agents

Cult Agents

Of course I finish this project, where I started: the Cult Agents. The idea of these guys is what actually pushed me to start executing on the whole force.


The Kellermorph is it. The Baetrum model is what got me thinking about a Genestealer Cult compromising more than just the miners – the planetary administration. (Don’t get me wrong: I like the miners, too.) All about that crazy wig. Conversion is minor: an extra arm (this guy actually required two Baetrum models) and some greenstuff’d forehead ridges on his head and pauldron.

Sanctus Talon

This guy’s the first model I bought. Like most of these, just a headswap and maybe hands.


I can’t use a Magus in Kill Team but the conversion was kind of demanded by the Scrutinator model, so I did the thing.

Sanctus Sniper

She’s my favorite, I think. I wish there were more female Cultist heads available: just two (the Magus and in the Achilles kit), but I guess two is better than nothing.


I’m mostly underwhelmed by this. He’s fine. I like the monocle. I hate the decision I made with the sash, but can’t come up with an alternative.

Bike Windshield

Working on a Genestealer Cults Enforcers conversion to use them in Ash Wastes (it’s been the plan since I started this project) and it’s going to involve some Scout Biker bikes.

I don’t like the idea of double-bolters on the front of these, in general and in particular because the Atalan Jackal models they’re going to counts-as don’t have guns mounted on the. Weird open bolter slots: no good, either, though.

So, TinkerCAD:

It’s not flawless, for reasons I can’t quite sort out but it’s close enough. I can’t find any of those issues in the actual print, and even if I could, this’ll be painted black.

Took a couple of iterations to get the mounting brackets good, which allowed me to bling it up a little bit.

Really happy with the results.

Genestealer Enforcers Cult Agents

I’m too hyped about these guys to wait for them to be painted: these are my Wyrmblade Cult Agents.

The Sanctus Sniper is the most impressive I think

I also think the Kellermorph is rad. Hard to see but he and his pauldron have forehead ridges.

This guy is supposed to be a Locus but I don’t know if he works as it. Still cool. He’s got a monocle.

The Sanctus Talon feels like the laziest of the bunch, but probably isn’t.

Genestealer Enforcers Progress

Not quite the last of the Neophytes: one guy broke while priming and has to wait.

First of the metamorphs, though.

Current batch is 8 Acolyte/Metamorphs: once I power through them, it’ll be a downhill coast of a half-dozen more + cult agents.

WIP Genestealer Enforcers

These guys have taken forever; waiting several eternities for glue to dry, etc. Still need to do some green stuff on about half of them and I’m waiting on a head for one of the models.

These are supposed to be Genestealer Cultists that have corrupted hive governance. Guardrails on the project is to do them up for Kill Team.

Everything is basically just head and arm swaps but I think they work. Cult Agents are Necromunda hired guns with same.

It Came from the Lightbox: More Genestealer Cults & Necromunda

Early last year, I painted up a few kits of Genestealer Cults because I felt like it. I told myself maybe I’d play Kill Team with them, but really: they’re neat models and I felt like painting them. In the end, I picked up a few more Genestealer Cult models than I ended up painting and they’ve been rattling around the shame pile since.

No longer!

They’ve all gotten LoF arcs in the off-chance I actually play Necromunda with them at some point.

Actolyte Hybrids

Can I just say: Genestealers on 25mm bases are tall, unbalanced and weird. Genestealers on 32mm bases are unimpeachable. They’re flawless. I love them.

Iconward & Genestealers

I also banged out the box of Slave Ogryn models in pretty speedy time: I did 2 each for my Goliaths and Enforcers and then 2 more just in their own scheme. I also painted up the Enforcer Null & robo dog.

Unaligned Necromunda Ogryns

Oh and hey somehow I never put the Ambots on the lightbox.

It Came from the Lightbox: Genestealer Cults

I picked up a few Genestealer Cult models a few months back for no reason other than that they look cool. I didn’t intend to paint up a 40K army of them (nor did I) but I certainly kept the idea of playing Kill Team with them on the table (I haven’t).

They’re painted up Duncan-style, per one of the WarhammerTV video guides. I deviated a little where it came to carapace and flesh, but otherwise, there’s nothing revolutionary here.

I’ve got to say: painting these was kind of a delight. I didn’t do it for any reason other than “I felt like it.” The Citadel method’s easy and produces good results with little effort. And Games Workshop minis really are pretty great, and it feels like it’s been a while since I painted them. (Not true, I’d just painted some Adeptus Titanicus before these, but that’s a little different.)

I think I might still have one batch left (Acolyte Hybrids? and an Acolyte Iconward?) but I don’t know that I’m likely to get to it soon. And I don’t think I’m likely to pick up any more, either.

But man, it felt good to just build a box of GW minis, paint a box of GW minis. Done.
