Greetings, space-gribblies!

I've decided to start a Genestealer Cult army and figured I would start a project journal here on B&C.

The Children of the King in Yellow are a cult who spread their ideologies via a text known as the King in Yellow. Those who reads the text are driven insane and begin to serve the Patriarch with fanatical devotion.

My Genestealers will be in a pure yellow scheme, with the early hybrids looking jaundiced, and the 4th gen having normal skin tones.

Here is what I've got so far, hope you enjoy it! I'll be working on lore and background for the cult as it grows.

Nice to see Lovecraft invade the hive fleets and 40k.

Good write up for GSC though

I'm glad someone picked up on that, it was pretty overt but I wasn't sure if we would have any Lovecraft fans here.

I'm excited to get a Patriarch and Magus painted up as the King in Yellow and his Mask.

@Cognative, some of the pictures of the king in yellow should make some great reference for a colour scheme for a GSC, even some of the art from the rpg CthulhuTech are just fantastic for colour schemes aswell.

I'd love to see the finished scheme once done.

And yes I'm a major Lovecraft fan and doing my bachelor's on Lovecraft writing

I've got my first game with genestealer cults tonight, 750 points. I'll be playing against a buddy using the index version of Space Wolves or Eldar. We decided to do index only to keep a Level Playing Field. I'll be running three squads of neophytes with heavy stubbers, grenade launchers, and Mining lasers. They will be hanging out in the backfield with an iconward. A unit of neophyte hybrids will be advancing up the board, while the Abominant and Abberants strike from the shadows. I also have a Primus in reserves, who will either try and pick off a week unit or character, or escort the aberrants if the abominant rolls poorly on the table.

I will be happy if the only thing that happens this game is the abominant roflstomping one character.

So, I ended up facing an Eldar Wraithguard army and it was... Tough. We ended with 3 Wraithguard alive and me wiped out. The Abominant did a ton of work, killing a full Wraithguard squad and a Wraithlord. The Abberants and Primus completely wiffed and got destroyed. Hybrids moving up the board got smited to death before doing anything. The Eldar player was using Alitoc rules so -1 to hit in shooting and most of my weapons wounded on 6, so the guns did absolutely nothing.

Anyways, Abominant did his job, I had fun.
