Genestealer Cult Tokens

I'm a total sucker for tokens.  You can see what I've done for other armies before in the tags.  I find that it helps so much in gameplay both in not forgetting things myself, but letting my opponent know what is going on.  There is nothing worse then feeling like someone is pulling a fast one on you, or the reverse... completely forgetting important bonuses. 

I created a set of tokens for the Genestealer Cult since there is so much going on.  Here's a picture of the finished product!

To make it easy, here is the list of things you'll need. I left Amazon links for the product you'll need.

1 Inch Round Glass Discs
1 inch circle punch
Mod Podge Glue
1 inch felt adhesive circles
Printed tokens

I created a sheet of tokens that are a little wider then 1 inch.  That way you have some play in where you punch the circles.  I then punched out all the circles.

Apply some mod podge glue to the back of the token and glued the face of the token to the bottom of the glass.  After letting it dry, I simply added the felt circles to the bottom.  Easy as that.  Now I have nice looking tokens in a bin to break out in the games.

Hopefully tomorrow I'm going to get my first practice game in with the Genestealer Cult.  There will be some proxy, but I hope to have a good chunk of actual models on the table.

Genestealer Cult Test Models

I'm finally back to posting!  I've been painting a bunch of Khorne models that I'll get up on the blog over the next few weeks but first I wanted to share my test models for the new army... the Genestealer Cult!  I was so excited when Deathwatch Overkill came out.  The models have so much character and the play style is so different than any other 40k army.

Many years ago we did a paint scheme with Tyranids.  Red flesh tones and body with khaki carapace.  As much as I love the traditional blues and purples I decided I'd incorporate the same old scheme to mesh the armies together.

Here are my first 5 acolytes from the deathwatch overkill box.  It's quite a large paint pallet.  I still need to dirty up and weather the bases.  Looks like I needed to do a better job focusing with the camera, sorry about that!

Finally here are two additional genestealers I painted.  They're painted under the same old scheme I did previously.

Next up on the painting table are the neophytes that look most like humans... then the hybrids that are somewhere in between.  I'm also working on finally getting into 30k with Imperial Fists.  Lots of hobby action!
