I've been working on some scratch-built cultists for the Strange Aeons Cthulhu mythos skirmish game.
Here's the whole gang.
3 melee cultists with 1 cultist with a rifle
1 melee cultist, the cult leader (opposite colored hood & robe with a pistol), 1 cultist rifle, & 1 with a Thompson SMG
These are made from GW Skaven Plague Monks with putty hoods & their tail cut off to use as the face tentacles. Now I feel like the Farmer's Wife. I also bought some of the Mantic Games Veer-Myn tails from an online bits shop, so some of the cultists could have more than 1 tentacle.
This idea of using Skaven for cultists & cutting of their tails came from Kid Kyoto who posted it on The Miniatures Page a few years ago.
My only disappointment in making them is that I used GW's new Earthshade wash for the 1st on them, & it turned out way too dark on in the folds & bottom of the robe.
Next up will either be my zombie-cthulhu mash ups, or some very unique figures for use as swarms or vermin.
