Default Chaos Cultists

Okay... I'm going to re-build my alpha legion and am after a unique kind of cultist.

I was thinking of kit bashing some skeletons and catachans or somthing similar.
Or is there a way to get the old cultist models?

You can mail order the old cultist models, but doing it that way would mean you've got to shell out a lot since their all metal... and then theres the converting to make each one slightly different etc.

I'd suggest getting a squad of the GW metal ones for special squads etc, and use the plastic skeleton/catachan ones for your rank and file.

Or use the new plastic Empire flagellants, or the FW renegade Militia sets.

Heya,

Whatever kits you use, I would recommend you use at least one that comes with shooting weapons of some kind, unless you have a surplus of sprue with shooting weapons. Remember that Cultists have pistols and CCW. The CCW is easy to represent, but the pistol can be a problem. You can chop up lasguns and other such things and that works. You can use any shooting weapon in the game and it will work just fine. But having them for 20~60 models, or however many you need, is the challenge unless you have them or can buy them.

Skeletons sound cool. However, personally I would suggest looking at Fantasy Marauders, Fantasy Militia and Necromunda models. The old cultists are going to be near impossible to get tons of, unless you find a good ebay, or if GW's old stock is full and you're ready to shell out serious cash.

Cheers,

having recently made some odd models, i would say get a box of catachan and a box of beastmen. only problem is that only the ungor heads suit the cat' bodies so. forget it. too expensive. you could use marauders and cat's.

the old redemtionist models looked so cool as cultists but theyre expensive, try mixing empire militia with maruaders and just use some spare pistols or perhaps you could put on the chaos marine accessory holsters to represent the pistols
