Genestealer Neophyte

I am in the process of assembling some test models for a small genestealer cult kill team … nothing too big or fancy, just a bunch of models that I like the look of in real terms. This is the first of them. 

He is a genestealer cult hybrid of the latter generations, featuring some upgrades as would befit a squad leader. No doubt he will get shot off the board on turn 1. But hey, their toughness is 3 and they have a poor 5+ saving throw. So I guess that's part of the course. I've not done anything particular with this model in terms of conversions -- just a simple assembly to get to grips with how these models are supposed to look and glue together. 

Although their arms are a bit more fragile than those of space marines, they come together nicely. The only negative is where the plastic joins the frame of the sprue, in a few places, it requires some filing and hobby knife application to get it smooth. Otherwise, its all good. I'd better decide on a painting scheme soon though!

The gene stealer cult seems like it would make a perfect kill team. So much character and fun to be had. Looks like a great start!
