Hi you all!

I'm very happy of B&C opening a Xenos section. Genestealers where my first love, so I started 40k as a Tyranid player...

 

Then a happy day arrived an finally I could have a Cult army!

 

So, even if i really like the "miners colony" theme of the new models, I am aiming for an infested Scientific colony

 

Unfortunately, scientific research is something a bit out of place in the Imperium, but I guess now and then in the galaxy a bunch of learned people, maybe related to Mechanicum but not so orthodox, starts to think to made actual research to "understand the universe".

Curiosity is a veeery deep human push after all, and a good explanation of the start of the cult infestation itself!

 

The project already started, and I already have some conversions I'm found of (Pics soon!), but I'm in search of more inspiration; so can you help me find something (Mini, images, movies, ideas, etc) related to long and troubled relation between scientist ad aliens?

 

The color scheme should be white/yellow as main color (Every reference to the King in Yellow is NOT a coincidence^^)

I plan to use some white coats, self made or from other minis, and a lot of Drukari (love the word) "crazy medical" bits

 

So, I ask for your opinion/ideas (I also expect not to be the only one with this idea)

The Void. 

 

Cultists, weird science, Mythos-inspired, all that good stuff.

Gotta go with the classic Alien as well.  Keep in mind that while "science" isn't necessarily the first priority of the Imperium, Adeptus Mechanicus Explorators are well known for seeking out new planets/alien life/etc. to further the knowledge and capabilities of the AdMech in general.  Perhaps your cult could be based on an Explorator fleet that was infiltrated by a Genestealer and returned to its Forgeworld to spread its contagion?



Seems like these models will never end!

Thanks for the great suggestions! I missed both "the thing" and "void", I will be happy to see them both as soon as possible

 

As for Alien, I guess I will watch a bit of Resurrection again; definitively not the best one, but I remember a scientist playing with Xenomophs

I would suggest you watch a playthrough or play dead space 1, 2 and maybe 3.  Great games, and gives a miner colony/cult uprising story where genestealers are replace with something more grizzly.  I would also look at more goofy/indie 80s films for inspiration.  Hope this helps.

Codex, Genestealer, actually had in the fluff a mechanicus world that fell to the four armed emperor. See if you can find the codex.I am at work now so I don't have the page numbers.

Ok, classic films of scientists messing with nature/uncovering something, things going wrong, and getting hunted down in an industrial setting:

 

Doom

DNA

Jurassic Park

Deep Blue Sea

Terminator

Pitch Black

Within the Rock

Piranha

Alien Resurrection

Prometheus

Contact

Sphere

Event Horizon

Resident Evil 1-6

 

Actually, it would be pretty cool to have a team of scientists that want to try and splice genestealer DNA with humans due to their ability to hibernate or live forever or something, and unwittingly cause some kind of infection that then runs rampant through the facility. 

 

The resident evil films, and Doom would be good inspiration for this.
