Just one credit and you may take a deeeep breath…
A world infested by a Genestealer Cult, the only Inquisitor there in league with the cult and an incoming Deathwatch force make a really intriguing setting. To populate the world with more life than just the three project founders’ own warbands, Big Boss Redskullz called for community contributions: civilians of all sorts to be used in their games. A really interesting opportunity for yet another side project, albeit one that is easily completed instead of clogging my hobby time. So I jumped on the contribution train and worked out my first civilian concept. 😀
As the Nestorian Infestation uses a special kind of airborne spores to infect imperial citizens, my first idea was a clean air / oxygen dealer who operates in the most polluted industrial areas where the spores have a hard time getting through all that respiratory gear. Of course “clean air” is an elastic term in his case and contains a whole lot of spores to spread the infection. I guess pure oxygen would work as a nice addicting drug for workers who breath more fumes than air in their daily life.
Being busy with my Carnival of Chaos, which utilised whatever parts I had lying around, I tried the same approach for the civilian. Therefore inspiration was closely tied to my bitz box. In there I found another old Electro-priest and a lot of Cultists. Mixed with a nice Genestealer Hybrid head and Tyranid parts (including a blue Genestealer hand from the early 3rd edition of 40k) this fellow was created:
Some minor filling and sanding needs yet to be done, but I’m happy my idea worked out quite like I anticipated.
