With time as my enemy, I still managed to update my squad with some snazzy new paint.
Due to some upcoming work constraints, I have been a bit limited on time for this week’s Squaduary Challenge. As such, I had to scramble to get my squad of Neophyte Acolytes up to some semblance of snuff. Here is what I have:
Since last week, I have touched up the basic layers and then added some details; a tattoo here, a scar there…Just your average day for a band of xenos-tainted convict miscreants. The fearless leader is sporting a power pick and web pistol, along with the unfortunate ex-warden’s snazzy duster. Spoils of war and all.
With faces that only their mothers could love, they stay hidden for a reason. The blue shade on the loin cloth and other accessories is the main color of the Genestealer Cult army; hence, I tried to work it in subtly. The versatile chaos cultist model is practically tailor-made for the neophyte role; and I am fortunate to have many that will inevitably fall into the warm clutches of the cult.
I managed to pick up a couple of cult mining lasers for a song, so they will also make their way into this squad if I can find the time.
It took some trimming to fit on actual neophyte heads, but they worked out in the end. The neophyte kit comes with a ton of spare bits – heads, arms, and so forth. In turn, these are perfect to work in as I can. I still need to paint the eyes and then give them some purdy bases. I might even try to work in some prison-number stencils on their jumpsuits, if I don’t set my ambition-level too high. However, that will be a project for the next week.
