Genestealer Cult of Nurgle part 1

So the good people of the Emporium of Rogue Dreams have convinced me that rather than trade away my genestealers I should paint them into a cult. Since Nurgle is my copilot, and I've never seen a genestealer cult dedicated to Nurgle, I decided that he would be the cult's patron. Along with that I decided that I didn't want to paint him the same color as a "standard" genestealer so I went with the complimentary colors of the standard colors instead. His name is Papa Justify though I haven't thought of a name for the cult yet. I was thinking of doing a voodoo themed cult. One of the rewards I rolled for him was slime trail so I had the idea that he would be tracking industrial waste from the hive's runoff around with him.


  1. He is wonderful, your painting makes the best of the heavy textures and your original colour schemehas this organic vibe that fits both the Nurgle theme and the Genestealer one.
    Really great work here.

  2. Thank you. I was worried while I was painting him that the colors wouldn't work, but I think it turned out good. I'll probably be painting the purestrains the normal blue and purple, but a bit more muted.

  3. That's an excellent reinterpretation of a Genestealer colour scheme.

    Well done!

    1. Thank you. It can be hard sometimes to come up with a color scheme that is different, but also looks good. I'm glad you like it.

  4. Beautiful painting and especially good idea!!!
