So was wondering ... based on all the various fluff ... who would cultists from Tallarn worship ? Slaanesh or Tzeentch ? :-\

Which of those powers have a more Mid East ... or Asian "flavor" ?

Publicly, I think it's Tzeentch.
Behind the scenes on Thursdays... it's all about Slaanesh :P

Thanks guys ! I was just thinking about 6mm Infantry in Mid East/Arab garb. And wondering if they'd fit into one of my Cultist units. So Slaanesh seems to agree with my thoughts as well. Thanks again boys !

Don't forget how important purple dye was in the ancient eastern med! A very popular slannesh color no?
Connection? :D

You could mix in a few Alpha Legion Chaos Marines in there as well. That way you could use the painted minis for a Vraksian Renegades army as well.

As to Emperor's Children and their cultists, there are a whole passel of manufacturers that make minis especially for them.

6mm wargaming is just like 25mm wargaming with more units fitting on the same size table. Thus bigger games to get lost in and avoid the hassles of everyday living, and offerings for the dice gods.

I've got Alpha Legion in their own unit. I'm using the SM1 lists. With a little SM2 mixed in. And Cultist units are separate from CSM units. However, the units can be taken together. As long as you have the points. But fight as separate formations.

CSMs units can have some oF of the basic SM units. Like Predators, L/Raiders, etc., ...

Cultists can have mostly IG type equipment, like Bombards, L/Russes, etc., ...

And each has some "special" Chaosy stuff :

CSMs can have Defilers, Obliterators, etc.

Cultist can have Artifact Weapons, etc.

Both can summon Demons of course ...
