Genestealers Cult – Magus with Force Stave



Magus – Front


This was a fun model to paint. It has lots of details that lend themselves to different painting techniques. My favorite details are the blue emeralds in his sword, breastplate, and staff. These were painted with a first layer of dark blue, white highlights, and then the gem was covered with Vallejo fluorescent blue

This next picture was a mistake and I almost deleted it. I clicked the camera as I was setting up the picture. I got my thumb and index finger. I kept the picture because it reminds me of how small these figures really are and why it is so difficult sometimes to paint the details on our models.

Primus


This is the Primus. Unlike the Magus which is one of my favorite, this one is just a good competent playing piece whose traits support and compliment a Genestealer cult army. I do like his face except for the little microphone piece on his chin that looks like a blotch.

I forgot to paint the jewel on his bonesword so it is just white. I have added it since but haven't taken a picture of the updated model.

Painting the Googles

Fifty, Captain Brown, and Stormatious. Thanks for the encouraging remarks.

In answer to Stormatious’s question, the googles were painted in three steps.

Step 1: Put a drop of green paint on the lenses. I used old Warhammer Scorpion Green but any yellowish green would do. With the raised rim around the googles, the effect was really nice since the paint tended to flow to the edge so that the thickest paint is around the rim.

Step 2: Put small dot of pure white in the middle of each lens. Use the tip of the brush.

Step 3: After the first two coats dry, put a drop of florescent green paint over the lens. I used Vallejo Green Flo. Let it dry and repeat several times. The florescent green paint is transparent so use several layers. Since the googles were slightly raised, I was able to really put a lot of wet florescent green on each lens, almost a puddle.

I find that I have the best control over the paint using a size 0 or 1 or 2 kolinsky red sable brush. My default for most detail work is size 1 or 2 although when I am painting, I really don’t notice which of the three sizes I am using. These sizes maintain the proper curvature for a narrow tip while smaller brushes such as size 00 or 000 quickly lose their shape. Some experienced model painters even recommend a size 3. I have a size 3 but haven’t started using it since I am cheap and am waiting for my other brushes to wear out first.

Brood Brothers – Grunt Infantry


These next several posts are of a brood brothers infantry squad, basically a Cadian infantry squad with the Genestealer Cult upgrade frame. I don’t like them as well as the Neophyte Hybrids but they will be great as a Brood Brothers Imperial Guard Detachment. Although not as fine as the regular Neophyte Hybrids, they painted up reasonably nice. The squad has ten models and all but three of them are almost the same so I will just share the pictures without trying to separate each model into its own post.

Brood Brothers – Kneeling Grunt Infantry


I switched two standing bodies from the infantry squad for the kneeling bodies in the heavy weapons squads so I have some kneeling infantry and some standing mortar men.
