The Cult of the Silken Veil is espouses personal growth through broadening of horizons and exploration of new experiences. Many of those who sit in the kafee and bliss houses are unaware of the true nature of the seemingly benign cult, which opens it's doors to all.
Those in the Cult's inner circle know different; by guile, deceit and entrapment of the curious, they are doing the bidding of Slaanesh!
|Cultists of the Silken Veil|
It's not very often I spent a long evening painting more than one figure, but I really wanted to get working on the two Cultists straight away. As a reminder, the unpainted figures are below. The two-headed mutant is an old Jes Goodwin beastman with new plastic pistols from the Dark Vengeance Cultists. The other Cultist is actually a Rogue Trader Ork with a head from an Egyptian Eunuch from Dark Fable Miniatures.
Eunuch-Cultist Moktafi is employed by the Cult to offer security at it's pleasure houses. Being emasculated has not halted Moktafi - he has learnt to find alternative methods of bliss.
Moktafi was given a very pale skin tone. Although I hadn't intended to go with pink for the Slaaneshi Cultists, I couldn't help myself and go with the traditional colours. I quite like the contrast between the skin and the black / pink / blue armour on the lower half.
Mutant Gron-Slom was sought out by the Cult for his mutation...and it's unique potential application. Few ordinary bliss house customers will ever encounter the disturbing mutant - his skills are reserved for trusted adherents.
