Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know this topic has probably been done before but here goes. What miniatures do you use for Cultists in Alpha Legion? I'm open to all ideas so let em fly!

But in Australia, you can't get those.....
You could use pretty much anything. Maybe Flangelents? But the are metal and hard to put guns on them. I would use plastic cadians and just add chaos marks, colours etc.:yes:

Do you have uber micro...????
Hmm... I'd just use suitably evil/fanatic looking models. Perhaps something from the chaos range could be converted with imperial guard parts. Perhaps daemonhunters/witch hunter retinue models could be painted up evil, and the marks of the inquisition changed to the marks of chaos. They models would suit it I think.
I would consider their role before conerting them. (By the way I really love to convert...this makes my LatD take forever to finish)
I think Saboteurs should look different from Assasins, but that's me.
As a base for conversions (inspired from the Dawn of War) I would use the legs from Darkelfs and then some thin, bare torsos the Zombie-sprue got some lovely ones-not to rotten. The heads would be bare, maybe from the Militia and the arms could be Necromundas. Then add some spikes, weapons and Hi-tech details and your set to go.
Since I have a lost and the damned army and an alpha legion army, I use my traitor marines as cultist since it's obvious that units going to battle would look like some kind of guerrilla. Catachans are great, especialy if you add zombies parts on them. Just crave some chaos signs in their skin and add some icons and other stuff that look chaotic and you're on.

True, but he's not in Australia. In your case, I like the Imperial Guard idea. But instead of normal heads, I would try swapping with some plastic zombie heads. Some of the less grotesque ones - just enough to represent the Chaos spreading through their bodies, corrupting them. Give them Laspistols and Chainswords, and I think it'd work.Originally Posted by warrior poet
actually I think you'll find he is, Perth is in Western Australia, which also uses the abbreviation WAOriginally Posted by Caluin
of course, I could very well be wrong too

I use Empire Militia models, because I prefer my cultists to look as if they are still hiding in the mainstream population. I've also heard of people using Marauders, Catachans, Valhallans, and even LOTR Haradrim.
