Genestealer Cult Limo


First model of the new year, and it's one for me - a Genestealer Cult Limousine for overthrowing the oppressors in style!

This was a Christmas present from the wife, who had a friend 3D print it (from here). I received it without guns so I built it a little turret to be attached by magnets - the cult will need to operate under cover before they go fully armed! I imagine running this mini as a Golith truck in games, so the turret has a twin autocannon (spares from the Onager Dunecrawler).

I kept the paint job fairly basic, using a stippling effect for the highlights on the bonnet and wheel arches and used washes in the recesses to avoid looking too 3D-printy, as an all over wash or drybrush might have done. The green windows were a bit of fun though - a few layers of successively lighter green then hit with Dark Angels green contrast with the centre of each window cleared with a damp brush. I think it's quite a convincing eerie glow. The whole thing was done in a day, which was nice.

With the ride complete, I had to take some photos with the passengers. I thought these lot looked cool, hybrid bodyguards for the Magus striding out like a celebrity at a (blood soaked) red carpet event!

This was a fun little project, and it's always nice to get something completed in a day. Hope you like it, and stay safe.


  1. Awesome, could easily substitute a Achilles Ridgerunner too, just add a different turret gun, or ML or Mining Laser elsewhere and that turret could be the counts as Heavy Stubbers.

    1. ^ what that guy said is a good idea. if you had a collection of 40k styled civilian cars/vehicles you could very well count as either, and/or both. the current scale of your truck is a bit more like the ridgerunner. good model all the same.
