The cult expands

Gyuimb knew how the other cultist thought of him. To them he was a freak, too mutated to go above but not pure, either. But they sure didn't mind putting him to work...


I painted this cultist at the same time as the other genestealer cultists. But being an oldhammer model, I felt he deserved his own blog post. He's not quite the same as the modern plastics either, since he lacks the jade chest piece, instead having the the segmented armor all over. He also has the oldhammer proportions that make these models so classic (and so  much more fun to paint). Not much else to say, other than enjoy this excellent Jes Goodwin sculpt!

    1. That name was generated by letting my 4 year old randomly select letters. I wanted to stop at Gyium, but he insisted on the b at the end.

    1. They're pretty much all great. Which makes painting them so much easier :D

    3. Here's where I confess that I don't know if Jes Goodwin is even in top 3 favorite sculptors at GW!

      But I can say, without a doubt, every one of his models is fun to paint.

    1. Thanks! I've been in a huge purple kick for about a decade now and try to fit it in whenever I can!
