Ok, so what I wanted to do is convert Imperial Guard models.
I read about the genestealers and thought that brood brothers would be a cool thing to do, since all you have to do there is make your models a bit more original and they're a lot fluffier than guardsmen.
The pic examples are of a 4th generation (or possibly 3rd) generation hybrid, so the model is very human-like.
NOTE: This is my first conversion using modeling putty so all advice is appreciated!
By the way don't mind the painting, its horrible as I did everything in a rush.
Sorry about pic quality but thats as good as its gonna get.

O.k the helmet is quite cool. But does it really scream genestealer hybrid.
Yeah i know your gonna say oh but its a 3 gen who is almost human and would
hide his secert from prying eyes of the Inqustion. But maye using a bare head and
blue tint to his skin would make him more the 'genestealer cultish'.
Just my thoughts, dont take it the wrong way. I love the idea of a G.S cult so good luck.
I AM BOOMER!
I agree with Boomer mate, He looks really cool. But he looks like a really cool guard veteran.
I'd get rid of the imperial eagles on the weapon and helmet and maybe put the brood symbol on there? No idea if you're any good at free hand but i don't think it'd be to hard to paint.
Updated colour scheme and hence pictures!
Making some Hybrids could be fun. Though Brood brothers are actually people infected by Genestealers not actual Hybrids. Also I think a 4th generation Hybrid is more or less (on the surface) human. After that they will be born Genestealers again. This model doesn't really say Hybrid. Some Genestealer cult symbols on the model would help to show he is 'one of them'.
Ok well symbols seem to have gotten lots of support.
Keep in mind that this is only a prototype!
When I get more cadians I can start working on more guys, and thought that I could use catachan heads so I could add a bit more detail to the whole infected thing.
