The bulk of the Chaos hordes are made up of heretical and weak-willed humans, seduced by the corrupting influences of Chaos. These heretics are known as Chaos Cultists and serve as expendable troopers in the armies of the Dark Gods. While the average cultist lacks the skill, training and expertise of the rank-and-file Imperial Guardsman, Chaos Cultists make up for this by their vast numbers, fanaticism and brutality.

I did some ‘kit bashing’ to build the five chaos cultists shown in this post. The bodies of these miniatures are from North Star Figures’ Frostgrave Cultist set. Components from the Wargames Factory Shock Troopers, Catachan Jungle Fighters, Cadian Shock Troopers, Chaos Marauders and Empire Flagellant sets were used. As well, the boltgun and one of the grenade launchers came from the metal Adeptus Arbites range.
