Genestealer Magus

Hello friends of the blog, Today's miniature is a Genestealer Magus, see the Genestealer guide over on Collecting Citadel Minatures wiki, now I have got to admit White Dwarf magazines 114-116 sent me Genestealer mental, the illustrations, background and painted cult army were the coolest thing going at the time, I had to have them so I purchased loads of them, built a cult army added Cultist Imperial Guard, Chaos Beastmen and I even converted Genestealers holding Daemon weapons.  A few months ago I got ten Genestealer Hybrid miniatures out the loft stripped with Dettol not my usual method but I am not using Nitromors in my lovely new sink, prepped and had a go at painting them, here is the first one. I have loads finshed to show you soon but I am hoping to do a whole blog post on these guy's.


Here is one of my Hybrid/traitor guard conversions to wet your appetite.


I hope you like

  1. Awesome! These guys are fearsome opponents. I have only seen a genestealer cult in a game once, in a cult vs imperial guard battle I took part in during the mid 90s. I was impressed by their combination of firepower and hand to hand units. Will you ever field these guys in 40k?

  2. Hey Ork Lord, I did battle a Genestealer cult army back in the early 90's but not since, I don't think I will ever paint enough to field an Army nowadays I have painted 7 of 10 and am bored already, I have 3 more half done to finsh, although I have just finished painted a running Patriarch and a RT Tyranid too but I really want to concentrate on finishing the adventurers set.

  3. The conversion looks great. I last used my Hybrids as a Psyker battle squad from the Imperial Guard codex and a converted Magos as a Primaris Psyker back in 2009.

    1. Thanks for posting dude, you some really nice miniatures there, they look fairly complete, I do remember the cracking citadel journal article, I think the cult army will 'officially' be back soon.
