My goal of clearing out lingering unfinished projects led me to my 40K Genestealer cult project.
Many years ago I made some custom parts using hybrids and plastic Cadian Imperial Guard. A friend of mine cast them in resin for me, and I used the parts with some Cadian leags and arms. About three years ago I painted them, but for some reason never based them. I wasn't sold on the main color I picked for the tunic I suppose. About a week ago I decided to switch the tunic to dark blue, and finished the bases.
When I started the cult I'd made some 'Cult Limousines' (no self respecting Patriarch or Magus would do without) from some plastic toy cars. I lowered the chassis a bit and made new low profile wheels using Pinewood Derby rims and PVC pipe.
The armored cars with turrets are also kids toys, with GW parts from one of the superheavy IG tanks. The only real work on them was imbedding a hexagon plate into the roof so that the turrets appear more integrated, and magnetizing the turret so it could be removed or rotated.
The Patriarch and Genestealer Purestrains are based to match my Space Hulk layout, but they will do double duty in the cult lineup.
I have another squad of hybrid head Brood Brothers and a bunch of metal Genestealer Hybrids waiting in the wings. Someday!
I've received some more questions about the cars. They are originally super hero 'pull cars'- cheap plastic cars that you pull back and let go. They had Iron Man or Hulk stickers. I bought a bunch of them, but it was about four years ago and they tend to go for about $5-10 on eBay now.
