Assembling the Genestealer Cult
Kill teams are a great way to start a new army, In this article I am going
to walk you through how I have gone about assembling my team of Neophyte
First off I must commend you on your enlightened choice of the Genestealer
Cult. ‘Cult’ has such negative connotations these days so let’s just
welcome you to the Genestealer ‘Family’.
It’s worth noting that the Neophyte kit is not the easy-to-build, push-fit
models that you usually see in starter sets, but has many options, upgrades,
alternative heads etc, that are perfect for being able to customise your

This time in our Warhammer Kill Team Diaries it's time to
check in with Jonas, who is painting up the Skitarii from the Kill Team
Painting Skitarii- In Theory
It’s tempting to write about painting my Skitarii Kill Team as if I had
planned it methodically and in all detail. I don’t think I really did.
I started with little more than practical considerations and unjustified
preference: make it a simple, economic paint job using a limited palette, and
use orange. However, I did put a little thought into the project before even
picking up a brush. In this entry I hope to outline that thought process, show
that it’s simple and doesn’t require much expertise, and share first
I’ve never used much colour theory, but I enjoy trying to improve my
painting and figured I’ll give it a shot. The colour complementary (or
‘opposite’) to orange is blue, so I’d use that. However, there’s little
more than greatcoats and bare metal on the Skitarii, hence not too much choice
what to use blue for. I decided for a most heavily oxidised bronze for the
metal parts. Basically, I’d paint all the metal blue or blue-ish. (An
alternative would’ve been to paint the coats blue and all metal parts a bright
rusty orange, but I didn’t like the idea of blue Skitarii at all.)
At that time my wife and I were watching the second season of The
Handmaid’s Tale. She suggested I’d paint their bases like a nuclear
wasteland. She said, make it like the colonies in the Republic of Gilead. In the
series they’re a steaming hellhole of dirty ochre and yellow tones. Picture

Our judges had their work cut out for them scoring the amazing finalists in
our 2018 Tabletop Gaming Painting Competition.
Now it's time to see who our well deserved winners are, as well as to check
out the runner ups…
Single Figure Winner: Robert Sakaluk
Firstly we have to apologise to Robert for almost missing this entry in the
judging process, which would have been a huge shame as it took out the category!
Robert's Ork Warboss is a fantastic example of the use of colour to catch the
eye and draw interest to the different parts of the model.
Welcome to our Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team Diaries. For this
series we have some fantastic guest bloggers, Jonas and Aidan, on board to
document building and painting the two kill teams in the new Warhammer
40K Kill Team Boxed Set.
Let's check in first with Jonas, who is working on the Skitarii.
Building the Skitarii
I made a straightforward job of what could’ve been a project involving
more obvious conversions, more customisation, perhaps even more fun. I ended up
building them exactly as per instructions though. With only little spare time at
hand, I wanted them done fast and well – prioritising care of assembly over
unique modelling choices.
It's time to catch up once again with our salty newbies as they take their
first tentative steps into the world of Age of Sigmar.
David- Apes of Sigmar
Having previously painted up the Stormcast Eternals from the original Age of
Sigmar starter set I had a bit of a head start on the rest of the boys, already
having a solid core of units painted and based.
So I've been working away at painting up all the Soul Wars Stormcasts in the
same colour scheme and have been making good progress.
is the line of die-cast toy vehicles produced since
1970 by Takara Tomy Co. of Japan. Tomica can be thought of as the Matchbox Toys
of Japan – but focuses mainly on Japanese domestic car brands from Toyota,
Nissan, Honda to Mitsuoka .
In 1970, there was only available the standard scale miniature car produced
by Diamond pet and Model pet , and some other small scale miniature cars were
imported by foreign brands.
Looking at this situation, Tomica was released as a full-scale small scale
die cast car of Japan domestic cars.
Tomica used to refer to the “match box”
, which was the main
products of small scale mini cars at the time. The scales of cars are mixed and
the size of the box is unified, replacing the new lineups by numbering. Using a
technique named “HOT STAMP” pressing the aluminium foil for representation
of chrome wheel (or wheel cap), suspension mechanism using leaf spring, thin
tire, and opening and closing action such as door, bonnet hood, trunk etc, these
are all based on the match box.
Also they had main theme
“Japanese diecast mini-cars for Japanese children”
Molded on Japanese domestic vehicles,that come in sizes that fit easily in the
palm of a child hands.
