The Locus, a figure of unwavering patience and quiet strength, possesses the astounding ability to transform from solemn stillness into a flurry of motion in the blink of an eye. This abrupt transition to violence is as awe-inspiring as it is lethal. Similar to a Lictor emerging from the shadows, the Locus executes a lightning-quick, decapitating maneuver, their twin sabres slicing through the chaos of battle to swiftly claim the head of their adversary.
For those seeking to ensure the safety of their Genestealer Cults leaders, the Locus is an indispensable asset. Serving as the ultimate bodyguard, this unit excels at intercepting wounds and eliminating foes before they can lay a hand on your Patriarch, Magus, Primus, or chosen champion.
Within this kit lies the opportunity to craft a Locus endowed with distinct individuality. The assortment of four different head options includes variations with hoods both lowered and raised, as well as two unhooded alternatives. This personal touch adds character to your models, while any spare components harmoniously align with a range of other Genestealer Cults models, granting you even more creative possibilities.

Begin by painting the Locus’s robes and hood with a regal purple shade like Naggaroth Night. Apply thin layers to capture the richness of the color while preserving the intricate details of the fabric.

- Step 3: Metallic Elegance
Move on to the Locus’s weaponry. Paint the sabres with metallic shades like Leadbelcher, highlighting their elegance and sophistication.
- Step 4: Captivating Cape
For the cape, use a deep red color like Khorne Red to add a striking contrast to the purple robes. This choice enhances the visual impact of the miniature.
- Step 5: Eye-catching Details
Paint the belt, pouches, and other accessories with complementary shades. A metallic color like Balthasar Gold for the belt buckle adds a touch of luxury.
- Step 6: Mesmerizing Eyes
Craft the eyes with a bright color like Mephiston Red. These small details infuse vitality into the miniature, making it more engaging.
- Step 7: Optional Effects
Feel free to experiment with optional effects. Applying Nuln Oil to certain areas can create shadows and depth, enhancing the overall realism of the miniature.
