Welcome to Librarium Online!
My wife took our new born baby out for the day so I decided to use the time to make a few test models for my brood brothers.
I used Skaven plague monks as the base figures
The first job to do was to make them a bit taller so this is how I went about that, not sure if this is the best way to go about it so if anyone has any suggestions on what might work better I'd appreciate the input.
I basically just cut off a part of the sprue and trimmed any parts of the feet that stick out from below the robes
Next I started to sculpt the robes now my green stuff skill is pretty much non existent as this is only the second time I've ever tried using the stuff, so C&C is welcome along with any help people can give me with this, here's what I have so far
I'm gonna file down some of the areas where it doesn't look to smooth.
Next I filled in the area where the original head went and made a new area to mount the new heads the heads I've used are Pig Iron's KOLONY FERAL HEADS
And here's a few more of the little fellas
Any way C&C are more than welcome and any tips people can give me for improving my green stuff work would be greatly appreciated
Again I know I have a fair bit of tidying up to do on these but for now I hope you enjoy them

Looking good RhYnO, been wanting to do a cult myself for Necro for ages, might steal, er, approriate the idea myself.
Are you gonna do your Brood Brothers in various stages of change or do a seperate unit of Hybrids? The new IG psycher would make a great Magus with a bit of work (he's got the head for it)
Can't wait to see what you do with the Patriarch...
Well I feel it's a bit of a cop out as I'd like to have a completely scratch built army but I've already got the old hybrid models as well as the Magus and the patriarch, so for the time being at least I'll be using them.
I'm gonna be mixing in crypt ghoul heads (thanks to boomer for them) with my brood brothers as well as any bald heads I can steal from people, so some of them will have a more 3rd/4th gen hybrid feel whilst the dedicated hybrid unit will be 1st/2nd gen with extra arms etc.
Dunno if you've seen it m8 but the codex I'm using is from bell of lost souls and can be found here if you got any ideas for the hybrid monstrosity's I'd like to hear them, I'm thinking of doing something with the carnifex kit atm but not 100% sure how to go about it
Oooh... I shall watch with interest. I've had a 'stealer cult on the quiet bubble for quite some time now. I'll share photos when I can. I chose to use the Empire Flagellants as the base for my rabble.
The kolony heads look good- I was considering using them and now I think I'm persuaded. I'm using the gas-mask heads for my errr.... 'loyalty confused' PDF forces.

No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Watching this for more..
Are all the figs going to be Monks?
I would scatter some catchan IG figures with GS conversions (mutations) through the army, just to break it up.
What kind of vehicles do you plan on using??
Seen a couple conversions using Ork trucks which could fit your theme real well

#25 - Relation to the original topic decreases with every single post.
nice start. cant wait to see more.
I am an Indestructible master of War.
this is cool stuff, why did they remove playable genestealer cults?
I think they look good. I like your choice of Plague monks as Hybrids, I think they will work well that way. You could make them taller by cutting them in half at the waist and adding a little more green stuff in there. It would be easier. The effect would be that they would have slightly longer looking torsos, all skiny and alien. That may help to show they are Hybrids while also making them taller. And your newborn is cute.
Hi all thanks for the nice comments I fear this thread wont get updated as much as I'd like it to what with having to run around after both my wife and my baby but I'll do my best to keep things coming
All of the brood brothers will be monks, on top of that I will have Genestealers, Genestealer Hybrids (will either use the old models of convert some crypt ghouls), Brood Initiates (will be using Catcahan's for these guys) and PDF troops (probably Cadians with head swaps) so there will be a good mix of figures throughout the army.
At the moment I don't have any transport vehicles planned as I believe if you cant mount everything in a transport don't mount anything at all but once I have the base of the army finished I'll maybe start adding limo's and trucks. I've started converting some space marine landspeeders into gun jeeps and am also thinking of doing some brood bikers at some point, I'll post some pics of the jeeps soon
He ain't so cute when he keeps you up all night I'll tell ya lol. I had thought of cutting them in half and adding green stuff to their mid section I'll do I'll give it a go on my next batch so I have a bit of a mixture and also so what works best
Great work dude
keep us posted!
