Space Hulk and the Genestealer Cult

Space Hulk was one of the first Games Workshop games I ever came in contact with and I loved it right away. I was not very old but somehow I managed to save up enough money to buy myself a copy. It is one of those games which again and again gets taken out from the shelves and dusted off.

A couple of years ago I decided to try and lure my wife to play some missions with me and she agreed. But only if I painted the miniatures first. This sounded reasonable I thought and since I was collecting both a Blood Angels army and a Genestealer Cult I could find use for the miniatures in 40K gaming too.

It did not take me long to paint up the first Genestealer Brood (12 miniatures) and one squad of Blood Angel Terminators and then we could play the first couple of missions...

But then the Space Hulk project kind of stagnated and I was probably caught up in all sorts of other miniatures buisness... I never completely forgot about the Genestealers and Genestealer Cult project and some how, no matter what else we game, we always end back in the 40K universe...

So now I finally finished the painting of 12 more genestealers and somewhere along the way I also painted up a Genestealer Patriarch...

I have Genestealer Cult Brood Brothers on my painting table and one more Terminator squad, so hopefully I will have a 40K Genestealer Cult at some point and painted Terminator models enough for further Space Hulk gaming.

A Few Painted Miniatures

I haven't really finished any larger group of miniatures lately, but it doesn't mean that I haven't done anything. I have been painting a few random models, painting on still unfinished and ongoing projects (Genestealer Cult, Retained Knights, Space Marines and such), cleaning up and preparing models, stripping second hand models and all such things.

But here is a few of the models I finished recently...

Angry dude and some Hunter-Slayers.

I finished the last two of my Hunter-Slayers, this time trying to give the tubes a green colour, to add a little more variety to their colour scheme. I think it works out quite well, but I don't know if I will repaint the already painted ones... Time will tell I guess.

The big guy is a Lab Mutant from Reaper Miniatures. I bought him really cheap on ebay last year sometime. I was buying something else from the seller and browsed his other auctions and I got tempted by this guy, especially since no one else was bidding on him.

The Hunter-Slayers will gang up with my other eight and the Lab Mutant will probably be used in Post Apocalyptse games or as a Super Villain in modern Super Hero games.
