Genestealer purestrain

I painted the first Genestealer purestrain, here the nice guy with the Hierarch and Hybrid.
What irony, I own these OOP miniatures (not the hierarch of course) from more than 13 years and just now I'm painting SOME of them.

Familiar (Thousand Sons Warband)

Then I painted the familiar for my Sorcerer. The Cabal of Sozer should be finally complete. I think I will use Pulp Alley rules to play it (it will be easier to play). At least for now. Maybe later I will try to use the realm of chaos rules for chaos warband (profiles, rules to create the warband) and necromunda for the game rules. Sozer the Seeker was the adviser and sidekick of Janus. When Janus was redeemed by the Sensei Tyrhael, Sozer became the new leader of the Cabal.

Now the Cabal of Sozer should be complete. ... maybe I could include still a familiar ;)

Thousand Sons Sorcerer

I painted the Champion and Sorcerer for my Thousand Sons warband. He will lead a squad of 5 OOP Thousand Sons Marines and probably two psykers/wizards and another Tzeentch Renegade. I painted the sorcerer with the classic paint scheme of the Thousand Sons, from the Index Astartes

Eldar 2.0 (Sensei Warband)

I was not sure about the clean biel-tan craftworld paint scheme of my eldar follower, then I updated it. I copied the Star Wars Mandalorian "Jodo Kast" paint scheme, so I saved some of the original colors. Here the old paint scheme with the new one.

 OLD paint scheme

NEW paint scheme


Redeemed Thousand Sons Marine (Sensei Warband)

Here the next follower for my sensei warband: a Redeemed Thousand Sons Marine. I always liked the Thousand Sons background (in fact I will paint a Thousand Sons warband too). The Thousand Marine have seen the light of the Star child and now help the sensei. He repainted his armour with pre-heresy Thousand Sons paint scheme.


Here the Redeemed Thousand Sons Chao Renegade join the Sensei Warband.
I'm considering if do some changes to the eldar paint scheme. He seem a common clean craftworld eldar than a rogue eldar that joined a sensei warband. However I'm not still sure about the changes to do. Maybe I should choose another eldar miniature too.

Eldar (Sensei Warband)

Here I've painted my first eldar. Yes I never painted one, the two I painted when I was a teenager don't count. ;)
It will be one of the followers for my sensei warband. What do you think? I painted it with a biel-tan paint scheme. The white on the armor was really boring, if I will paint more eldars I will probably use a yellow (void watchers) or blue/yellow armor paint scheme.

Sensei

Soon I should receive 4 iron klaw space pirates and one citadel squat, spoil of a small swap I've done. Then I started to consider how use these miniatures, my initial idea was to paint them as cultists for my genestealer cult, but after a while I considered to create a small sensei warband too. I still had an incomplete chaos champion and it seem to be fine for a small conversion. Here what I've done. I was ispired to the classic citadel sensei miniature and later I find it fine as a Rogue trader version of the Blizzard Diablo: Archangel Tyrael. I'm not still sure if this will be the final version.


Captain of the Venusian Guard: Asteria

Finally I'm painting the royal guards for the Goddess "Queen Talestri's Venusian Royal Guard" Pulp Alley league, here the Captain.

His thoughts are interrupted by his daughter: "Dad, we received news about strange rituals in the deep of the jungle. Seem that a crazy cult has found an ancient altar of the amazons and use it for raise the dead"  :-X
Lord Baker smiles with irony: "Fine my dear, I'm not worried about their rituals, I never believed in magic.  ::) I just hope that these cultists are not hostile and they have not broken the precious altar. :? Call your uncle and Bagi, we have work to do."  :)
Meanwhile not too far away...
Captain Littorio is admiring his booty: the ancient statue from the legendary city of Themyscira."Capitano (Captain)..." his liutenant Giulietta hail him "The Bakers are moving, what are your orders?"
