As always, the Genestealer Cult must have its limos, and I thought long and hard about what sort of car I wanted to use. Eventually I decided on the classic Morgan, a favourite of mine since I played Asphalt Urban GT on the DS as a young teen.
My limousines will most likely be used for Psyker Battle Squads, with a Magus converting the psychic potential of these recruits into proper power. He can then fire these blasts from his moving pulpit, summoning more cultists from the sewer systems.
Given I plan to be proxying them as Chimeras or Ork Trukks, I thought I’d better give them enough girth to fit the profile of these vehicles. So the height of the body will be increased a bit, and the windows decreased to be less vulnerable.
The idea behind these is that the Magi will be the only real users of these luxury cars, with anti-grav “wheels” and possibly even neon lighting. The cockpit of the car will be made from the top of a predator turret, and the gun port (now located at the back) will be made into a viewing station for the attendant Magus.
I’ll be building a plasticard or similar frame, then using parts from the Predator, Ork Bomma and Imperial Guard vehicles to cover it in GW parts…I’d like to be able to use these guys!
