The Accursed Cultists, a terrifying chaos force with diverse and ominous origins. These aberrations arise from dark rituals, empyric experimentation, or the predatory influence of malevolent entities. Unleashed onto the battlefield, these loathsome creatures serve as lurching shock troops, their tainted flesh knitting together grievous wounds with an unnatural vigor.
In this multipart plastic kit, you’ll find eight Accursed Cultists: five twisted Mutants and three horrifying Torments. Prepare to be mesmerized by the stunning grotesqueness of these models, meticulously crafted with vile details and unique mutations. From writhing tentacles to razor-sharp talons, each figure embodies a nightmarish presence.
The Mutants, clad in tattered remnants of cultist robes, charge forward with ferocity, flailing and lashing at the enemy with their fearsome claws and tendrils. As for the Torments, they stand tall and imposing, warped beyond recognition. Scarified runes and binding seals mark their grotesque bodies, while vestiges of their once-human form serve as haunting reminders of their twisted past.
Join the battle with the Accursed Cultists, and witness firsthand the macabre spectacle of these otherworldly warriors as they unleash their bestial hunger upon all who dare to stand in their way.

How to paint the Accursed Cultists set
- Step 1: Prime your models
Apply a thin, even coat of primer to the Accursed Cultists. This will create a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to. For example, you can use a grey primer like Mechanicus Standard Grey.
- Step 2: Basecoat the robes
Using a medium-sized brush, apply a solid basecoat to the cultists robes. For a tattered and weathered look, use a dark color like Abaddon Black. Ensure smooth coverage across the entire area.
- Step 3: Highlight the robes
With a smaller brush, carefully apply a lighter color to the raised areas of the robes. For instance, you can use Eshin Grey to add highlights, creating depth and texture.
- Step 4: Paint the flesh
Using a brush suitable for fine details, paint the exposed flesh of the cultists. A good starting point is using Bugman’s Glow as the basecoat color. Apply a thin layer, making sure not to cover the previously painted robes.
- Step 5: Add wash for depth
Apply a wash, such as Agrax Earthshade, over the flesh areas. This will settle into the recesses, adding shading and depth to the model. Make sure to let the wash dry completely before proceeding.
- Step 6: Detail the mutations
Using a fine brush, carefully paint the unique mutations on each cultist. Get creative here! For example, you can use Genestealer Purple for tentacles, or Rakarth Flesh for twisted appendages. Remember to keep the colors consistent across all the models.
- Step 7: Paint the metallic parts
Paint any metallic elements on the cultists, such as weapons or armor. Try using Leadbelcher for a worn metal look. Apply the color smoothly and consider adding a wash, like Nuln Oil, to enhance the shading.
- Step 8: Base the models
Finish off by painting the base. Use a texture paint, like Stirland Mud, to add depth and realism. You can also add additional details like grass or rocks to make it more visually appealing.
- Step 9: Optional final touches
If you’re feeling adventurous, add some extra details. You can use a fine brush to paint eyes or add blood effects using a technical paint like Blood for the Blood God. However, this step is entirely up to your personal preference.
