Hobby Update 26/01/18- Genestealer Cult Scout Sentinels

This week's Hobby Update features my two Scout Sentinels for my Genestealer Cults army.

I have previously painted up one of my three Sentinels to test out the yellow colour scheme. I was quite happy with the results, so I decided to fire ahead with the two other Sentinels for the army. For these two, however, I decided to do something a bit more with the bases.
I pick up some slate stones (literally, they have a bunch at my work) and added them to the base. I positioned the leg of the Sentinel to look like it was climbing over the rock to get to the enemy.

The other difference with these two models is that I did not glue the magnets to the guns before painting them. I still intend to magnetise the weapons, but just after they are painted up. On the first model, I glued the magnets in place and covered them in Blutac for undercoating and painting. However, when I removed the Blutac, most of the time it took the magnet with it, meaning I had to glue them on again. To stop this, I will simply remove the small piece of plastic insert and glue the magnet in place after the painting is done.

The two Sentinels are still at an early stage, but I hope to get them finished next week. After that, I am going to do some more work on my White Scars army. I have purchased a few more models to hopefully give them a better edge in 8th edition, so will be working on these for a tournament at the end of February.


  1. I like the rocks on the bases! I bet those little guys aren't going to be tipping over on the tabletop much. Great editions to the Cult.

    1. Yeah, it makes them a lot more sturdy on the tabletop! No longer constantly knocking them over.

  2. Loving these, great choice of industrial yellow.
