Genestealer Cult

I was hoping that someone here could direct me to an alternative sculpt for a Genestealer Broodlord and Cult Magus. I am open to other intreprations and mild conversions.

 

I was hoping to do a "Cathlu" intrepretation focusing on a nicely done cult magus leading a large grouping of puritians. I was hoping to find alternative broodlord sculpt that would follow the basic anatomy of a genestealer.

 

Rules wise I am using a rogue psyker from the Witch-hunters codex and A broodlord with a entirely genestealer list.

Hey Wally West,

 

I would look in the GW catalog of out of print minis for the old Genestealer Patriarch and Genestealer Magus. There are 2 sculpts of the patriarch (running and the far cooler one on a throne) and several for the magus. Alternately, you could look for them on ebay. I got mine through ebay long ago before they offered them through the catalog and the price was fairly comparable. Or maybe not, :blink: I just checked ebay and it'd be cheaper to go through the catalog although you could at least see what they look like.

Just a thought. Though I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I see anything else cool.

GW has canceled bits-orders. (Im an old spacehulk player, I am well aware of these).

 

Actualy I was hoping someone who was more familiar with the reaper range might direct me to some Stealer-isque boss model. Somthing that could be used as a Broodlord. Same thing with a cult leader.

 

I noticed that on Fig search I can type in Deamon or Claws but its unlikely that I am seeing every sculpt avaiable.

 

Just hoping that someone might know of a good fit. I really dont care for the old partrach model, and the Magus goes for 15-20 dollars on ebay. I would be just as happy spending 20 dollars on a model that looked similar.

 

(This might sound strange) Also, I prefer not to think of them as Nids. Rather I would like to think of them as some kind of deviant alien spicies or chaos runagade. Thus using an alternte sculpt is not a big deal, I would prefer to think of them as some "galatic plague" or Xenomorph. I have thrown this question up in a few places and I never get a good answer.

That Inq. sculpt is very... UGLY.

 

Here, perhaps a frame of refrence would help.

My goal is to present Genestealers as a phenomonon outside of the tyarnid sphere of influince. IE. To make them look like a Old School Cult/ Chaos Runagades again. To this end I would like to find two suitable sculpts. I have plenty of bits to convert them, but lack the base models. This expidition is also on a budjet, I want to see if I can do it cheaper then tracking down a single magus on Ebay(20usd).

 

Sculpt 1- A Patriarche Genestealer

Requirements: Few, because I am looking to get away from the broodlord sculpt and despise the old GW sculpt I would love to find somthing unique. I would prefer somthing along these lines, http://www.coolminiornot.com/87717. But would be happy with a tenticled head. I have plenty of claw bits to substutue the hands but would prefer to use a suitable model. A tenticled or bulbus head would bolth work.

 

Sculpt 2- A Magus (Rogue Psyker)

Requirments: A (hopefully bald) wizard that would take the conversion to 40K fairly well. An imperial gothic look prefered. Troll magazine once had alternate magus sculpts and conversions, and these would fit the bill but I was wondering if anyones knowlage of Reapers product range might help me.

 

Again, I am asking for help because I am frankly so un-familiar with reapers product range. If you know of a non-reaper sculpt that is fine, but at this time I have dicided that reaper is most likely to meet my needs due to its extensive colection of Deamon and D&D monters.

 

Thankyou for your time.
