Warhammer 40K Kill Team Diaries: Building Genestealer Cult

Hobbies

Add a comment By David

In this episode of our Warhammer 40K Kill Team Diaries it's time to check in with Aidan, who is building up the Genestealer Cultists from the Kill Team Starter Set.

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 Hybrids.

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 Kill Team.

Warhammer 40K Kill Team Diaries: Painting Skitarii Part 1

Hobbies

Add a comment By David

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 Starter Set

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 results.

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 for reference.

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.
