Genestealer Cult Acolyte Hybrids

Full-throttle painting continues as I finish off a 5 man squad of Hybrids. These are some nice models, and I'm happy with how they came out, but did they have to make them with so many arms! It sure makes them harder to paint!

This batch also includes my converted leader, with a rather costly Bonesword and lashwhip combination.

Next I plan to paint one more Purestrain Genestealer, to round out the unit to a legal quantity, before plunging into the next 5 Hybrids. If I can manage all that, this force will really be coming together - with a finished HQ, 2 troops choices, a vehicle and even an elite choice.

I've added a lot of pictures below, as ever comments and questions are always welcome.


  1. Wow these look so good!
    How did you get that electric blue ?

  2. It is 3 coats of paint - first pure Vallejo blue green, then mix in 1/3 white and highlight, and a final highlight of 2/3 white 1/3 blue green. It's surprisingly simple, but very effective. One of my favourite paints!

  3. I LOVE your teal accents on these guys!
