I have recently been setting up a Rogue Trader Campaign for my girlfriend and I and so have been expanding my Genestealer cult who will be taking on the role of the baddies. I am okay for hybrids and purestrains but I was a bit short in the way of appropriate brood brothers...

Luckily I had some old school Necromunda Orlocks to hand and these classic 'thugs' fitted perfectly the image that I wanted for the force!

Image

I have painted up ten already, and am now starting work on the next ten (including some heavies!)

The added bonus is that this also gives me a battle ready gang for games of Necromunda... Winner!

There's a few more photos and a bit more detail on my blog at:

Cheers guys! I'm not going to lie, I found the skin a nightmare to get right, but I'm pleased I endeavored! I'm working on the next ten now!!

I really like the color scheme on these guys. The Blue and Grey with the yellow bandanas. I am not sure I would have thought to use that color, but you really pulled off the yellow, it brings the whole thing together in my opinion.

Cheers mate! To be honest the colour scheme wouldnt usually have occurred to me; it was the need to tie these guys in with the rest of my stealer cult that led me to this paint job. That being said I am now really pleased with it!

That's pretty much the color scheme I did on mine back in the day, but I had red bandanas, I am think I like the yellow better.
