Genestealer Cult - Aberrant 2nd Generation Hybrid


My hobby has been intermittent lately, due to this, that and the other thing. I did get a few hours in recently though, and I managed to finish putting together this guy, the melta-gunner for the squad of hybrids.


He's not your standard bald bloke with an extra arm for starters, even though he is actually bald. And has an extra arm. Anyway. There will be enough of those in the force, and I wanted the specialists to be a bit more standout. In my iteration of the cult, not every hybrid turns out as expected. I wanted some weirdness in the proportions as the human genes assert themselves over the generations, this fellow being somewhere between 1st and 2nd generation. To reassert a bit of realism I had to add a bit of heft. This became pretty apparent after some discussion about his gun with Cheetor. His arm needed some re-posing to look like he was bearing the weight of the gun instead of waving it about like it was made of foam. I added some straps to make it look still heavier. The tabard was added to make him fit in a little better with the adeptus mechanicus theme, as were the stim injectors on his back. The masked head I plan on using across the force, probably more so on the skitarii, but also on the occasional hybrid.

  1. My ADD genes seem to be reasserting since August: like you I am finding it very hard to get any sort of rhythm to the toy soldier output. Everything is a struggle for some reason. Ho hum.

    Meanwhile, that guy looks cool. Where does the unoccupied right arm come from? Is it a Forsaken part?

    1. Yeah, I can't get a flow going at all.

      Cheers, the arm is a ghoul arm. Pretty useful kit, the ghouls.

    2. The GW Ghouls get a bum rap, I think that they are great. I made some L4D2 Jockeys with them a few years ago, they are cool.
