40k Genestealer Cult - Cult Limo painting in progress

Just a quick hit this morning - Squeezed in a little brush time this week and laid in the base colors on the Cult Limo that I'd ordered up from Wargame Exclusive Miniatures.


Went with the purple carapace color to match the 'stealers, and besides what better color to paint the cult's Pimpmobile than purple and gold, after all?


Not entirely happy with how the windows are coming along, I'm thinking I'm going to go a different route and try an orange-ish/false horizon look to try an emulate a polarized/mirrored window effect that will match the orange jumpsuits on the cultists, sort of like the pic below:


I think that'll set off against the purple better when all is said and done!

lol, I spotted that limo on their website last night. Al of their 'transports' are super tempting, the problem is I rarely play 40k anymore...

That's proper bling...

That's awesome. I can just imagine this with hydraulics bouncing up and down the tabel top.

Dai said...

Love it. And yes, orange windows will look tonnes better.

You need a fleet of these.

That is 'pimping'!

NafNaf said...

Love it. Totally old school stealers. I reckon that orange fade will look really good on the windows

Looking slick man.

And it even goes with the "Get in the damn car!" look the Magos is giving everyone. :)

Go with the distant horizon look, always a winner.

@The GunGrave: Thanks! I've been very pleased with all the "combat cars" WGE has been doing of late!

@Da Masta Cheef: Hah! I hear ya - I have no real use for the cars but darn it if I don't want to paint 'em! :)

@Col. Hertford: Never let it be said that the cult doesn't have style!

@Shaggy: Haha!

@Dai: Indeed, I'm likely going to pick up a second one at some point...

@riot ville: Absolutely!

@NafNaf: Thanks!

@Rory Priest: Cheers, man!

@#2501: Hah! "I swear I'll turn this limo around if you hybrids don't settle down!"

@Zzzzzz: Indeed - going to have to see what I can do, the windows are deceptively tiny!

@Jakub Furlanetto: Thanks!

I appreciate the kind words, everyone! Cheers!
