'nids part 297 - Genestealer cult - Acolyte Iconward - TO DONE!

Afternoon #warmongers and #warhammercommunity I've been #paintingwarhammer Genestealer Acolyte Iconward. Currently does this count as #NidVember #NomVember? I'm only now beginning to question whether my GSC stuff should be under my 'nids tally...? I've completed some more 'nids but obviously #ArmiesOnParade has somewhat overshadowed those efforts. I'll still be sharing them soon though.

Anyhoo, it's a welcome addition to my Genestealer Cult. He does add significant buffs to the army, or so I understand so may well be included in it, if I ever play with them. That said there are plenty of choices for HQ so who knows.

I was really chuffed how much it matches my similarly attired existing Acolytes. He makes a great addition to what I've done so far.

I didn't take too many 'red' pics so here's all my white pics too. 

Once again I was struggling with white balance and decent lighting.


I added a little slime coming from the pipe on the base, it wasn't great, the UHU glue is a nightmare to use and the lime paint was a bit too opaque, but semi-transparent looked awful. 


I did enjoy the freehand Free Radical Collective symbols, subtly different than I usually do them. The one on the back of the banner is a bit hidden though.


I tried some different settings on the camera below, not much more to say, just enjoy the pics.




And so I gets me my Great Big Granite Stamp of Approval - TO DONE!'


  1. Great work! I'm hoping my Cult get a new book soon, as they are pretty poor on the table at the moment.

    1. I only played them at that Double Trouble tournament. It's getting to a point where I'm questioning why I'm painting again. Even after lockdown, when we're in a position to game again I'm not sure why I will need all this stuff. It's still not stopping me want some Helverins for my Knights, a Leman Russ and Chimera for my cult, some more Land Speeders and even a Knight Castellan!

      Thankfully common sense is prevailing.

    2. Yeah, I'm painting a bunch of White Scars and Deathwatch at the moment, but who knows when I'll next get a game played!

    3. My guys keep suggesting we try Blackstone Fortress over Zoom, but we eventually realise it's a little too impractical. 😔

  2. Great work. Very nice looking model.

    1. Cheers DAM, it'd been sat almost complete for quite a while. Nice to get it boxed off.
