John Krasinski Is Going To Slip Up One Of These Days
Anywho, hello and welcome to a small update from yours truly. I'll just get right to it; you people who pay for shooty things on your Cultists confuse, anger and disorient me with your decision-making. I don't understand why you'd pay points, except for maybe a flamer. And even then I question the logic. But I'm not here to tell you how to play (check my articles from a couple of years ago, ha! Hahaha... Seriously, I'm a ass sometimes,) I'm here to show you how I turned my shooty Cultists (the other half of my first unit of them) from the Dark Vengeance set into the cheaper melee-based Cultists.
First up is this frightening individual:
A pretty easy conversion, simply turning his shotgun into an odd looking handgun with some plasticard or the end of a bolter is an easy task:
Next up is probably the reason I started this idea. I love this model so much, but his choice is weapon is silly when it costs his melee weapon and 1pt per model:
The cure? Cut off his weapon, slap on a barrel like before. As for his left arm, I had to cut off his hand and replace it with a hand holding a sword from what I think was an IG kit. This left his arm in an odd pose, though, so I cut that at the elbow and greenstuffed it back into a better pose.
Third up is probably my second favorite model in this kit, but again, why did you pick up an autogun!?
This one was easy-peasy. Short the autogun, make it an autopistol, which gives enough room to replace his right hand with a hand holding a syringe with some greenstuff tossed in for a cleaner look.
Same as before, rifle-into-a-pistol, only this guy's spare hand got turned into a melee-weapon, implanted in his arm; yum!
Lastly is the Texas chainsaw massacre looking duder:
Which actually spawned the idea for a chainsaw! This guy definitely took the most work. His left hand has been chopped off and a pistol-hand has been permanently put in-place reminding him to never touch a two-handed shooting weapon ever again. I also ran some tubing from his pack to his arm, I think I'm going to make it look like bloody sludge. Finally, his chainsaw took some work. I cut off most of the Heavy Stubber, replaced it with two chainswords, back-to-back and cleaned up the look with some plasticard and greenstuff.
And that's about it, I should start painting these guys soon, so stay tuned!
