Genestealer Cult Primus

While the Patriarch is the true leader of the Genestealer Cult, a Primus leads the Cult in open war. They stand out among their Broodkin and carry the best stolen weapons and wargear the Cult can offer.

I had a lot of fun painting this model, from the slightly gross Bonesword, painted up to have a few eyes unblinkingly staring at the enemy, to the worn leather jacket and the Needle Pistol carried in his other hand. His final arm ends in a large claw with a Toxic Injector, coating it in lethal poison.

I really like how this model stands out from the rest of the Cult. The pose helps sell him as a leader, though one who can clearly handle himself in a combat situation.
