Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades Special Weapons & Shotguns — July 26, 2018

Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades Special Weapons & Shotguns

I am back again with another update on the Warp Cult. This batch represents a Heavy Stubber Team, three Melta-Gunners, three Plasma-Gunners and the balance of troops are armed with Shotguns. The now discontinued Forge World Renegades & Heretics make the bulk of the force with the Shotgun-armed members converted from Forge World Cadian Veterans and a few miscellaneous other bitz added for good measure.

Enjoy!

Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades — June 26, 2018

Organized Chaos: Forge World Renegades

We now find ourselves entering the meaty Forge World side of the Warp Cult. The Forge World components have for a long time represented some of the last infantry models intended to be painted.

With so many Forge World lines having been discontinued, I can only hope this one will stick around for a few more years.

This shoot also welcomes a light box from Amazon… $15 well spent!

The increase in metal finishes available on these models has also allowed the opportunity to return to one of my favourite techniques from vehicles… rust!

Organized Chaos: Genestealer Cult Conversion (& Second FW Tease) — March 18, 2018

Organized Chaos: Genestealer Cult Conversion (& Second FW Tease)

This conversion batch was not a part of the original project scope for the Warp Cult/Renegade Force. This is primarily due to the release of the Genestealer Cult army after this project began.

Having looked at the releases of the Genestealer Cult army for 40K, I became fascinated with the aesthetic, the new options and the potential to mesh them into my theme. As such we have a full squad of Genestealer Cult members with their heads replaced with Cadian heads and all of the Genestealer livery cut or filed off.

The kit is awesome from a weapon option perspective. Having spent years with the rather dated Cadian weapon arms, this release represents a pinnacle of design and manufacturing evolution. So much so that I found myself saving some of the more unique components for use with their loyalist opposites and some forthcoming special projects.

As before, the colour theme is similar enough to continue the ‘organized chaos’ of the concept. Enjoy!

20180307_185245As the second tease from the Forge World side, I have assembled the Renegade Command Squad. It still requires some scraping, smoothing and filling, but I mainly wanted to see how difficult the standard bearer would be to drill out, and to see the Champion on a base. Both are outstanding models.
