Ex Profundis, gangers and two invitationals.

Hello!

Here is some new stuff.

Firstly, my Age of Sigmar ramblings where featured on the fantastic Ex Profundis blog, thanks to Bruticus! It’s a real honor to see my things on the same page as such brilliant minds. I loved taking this moody pictures of a fictive game and seeing them in huge size with a beautiful layout! Thank you for this opportunity! And i think i’ll stick with big pictures for now! (You can click on the picture, it works!)

Next, i showed these guys on the Inquisitorium Facebook page. They are a failed attempt to participate to the Iron Sleet Invitational. They are the Whisper’s Will, a specialist squad from feudal world, sent to fight in some war at the other end of the galaxy, considered heroes because they didn’t die yet. In my mind, their equipment is used in toxic swamps, the candles setting the gases on fire so the rest of the army can advance with fewer risks.

WhispersWill1

Here a small piece of narrative I wrote on them.

___

When they came from the sky, they burned our priests and told us that our gods were false, blasphemies against the only true god. A half dead god somewhere in the stars. I never met Him, but they say that He’s still protecting us. 

I’m the only survivor of my village now. After the king was trapped in a screaming machine, most of us had to join His army or join the priesthood in the pire forest. 

Four mates from my regiment survived our first battle. Did we lose? Did we win? After that, they gave us medals and we spoke to a bold man with too many disturbing eyes, and my head is full of someone else’s thoughts now. I don’t remember the battle. 

I don’t know where are all the others, from the other villages. I guess they were send to fight in His name somewhere. 

Now they say that we are experienced enough to serve as example for the new ones, but i have no clue as to were we are, and why we do what we do. Since we left our planet, nothing seems to mean anything anymore. There are too many stars, and they are too close to each other. There are too many screaming priests, and we have to scream with them if we want to live to see the next battle. I hope that the Emperor protects, as we’ve learn to say, because i’m terrified.

Here are a few civilians for the Nestorian Infestation campaign that will happen this year, initiated by Bigbossredskullz and WilhelMiniatures – if i’m correct, hope so!.. Nothing too big or scary as i really thought them as part of the anonymous crowd at the back of the pictures.

 

And here is my gang for necromunda. I have a few ideas of narratives and settings for them, that may end in a new board game at some point. I’ll come back on this when they are painted! I started working on them with a few sketches i show here also. I didn’t have plans for the big one, but it kind of happened after some time wandering on art station and seeing crazy artworks! That kind of things makes me want to be better at drawing, waaaay better! I’m also inspired a lot by Vince Michael amazing cyberpunk work, you have to check it!

 

Finally, i realized i’m less active in blogs and forum. The Facebook groups and instagram community makes it too easy for me to hide behind a shy « like » and a small comment, and the guilt of not being active makes it difficult to try being active again, if you see what i mean! Well, anyway, i’m sorry for my absence in that area!..

Thank you for passing by and i wish you all many good things!

A warband and two boxes

Hi here!

It’s been a while since the last update but here are the last things i’ve been working on.

Firstly, a sylvaneth warband to try the Aos Skirmish. We still have to try our first game of Aos, but i hope this will be a nice entry ticket. I have the rest of the battalion to work on later.. I’m a bit late after all the branchitsu madness around aos28, but here they are. I’ll make more individual photos once they are painted. I found a bit hard to be original with this few. So many brilliant things have been already done. And i’m still asking myself a bit about the sylvaneth civilisation, their level of technology and individualism. There’s not a lot about this in the army book, i hope there will be a bit more in the future!

Next is a thing i thought a lot about considering i don’t play that much anymore, but enjoy building things. Following the travel boxes i made earlier this year, i made a more detailed one, maybe more like a piece of scenery or a diorama of the inside of an imperial building. The floor is magnetic again, so it can be used to move a few miniatures around, and there is a button behind the box to turn a little light on. So it’s a kind of decorative thing i guess?

This is the second one i made just after the wooden box. I tried something smaller, and thought about it as the relic boxes the miniatures often carry around. So it’s a box, with a cyborg corpse reliquary inside.

And since i really enjoyed doing those, i think i’m going to make a few more!

And finally, Bigbossredskulls recently published a blog post with a few of my drawing inspired by his tzeenchian warbands! This hobby exchange saw this fantastic miniature take a place in my Warhammer gallery on the wall! Thank you! (Be sure to check his blog, his work is crazy creative!)

The Crawling Tumor – WIP

While i’m feeding upon the creativity of the Dark Age of Sigmar community initiated by Bruticus, i made a few miniatures to go with my Beastman Chaman. I’m still uncertain about some of them, and some other are still on the shelf waiting to have a few better ideas, or more appropriate groupe to walk by. And strangely enough, there is not that much beastmen for now.. I hope to change that once i have a suitable idea.. For now, here are some of them! And for an unbelievable thing, i even made a few narrative things i’ll post once they’re painted!..

Have a nice weekend!

RadScavengers and tutorial..

Hello!

I finished the two wasteland wanderers,i just changed the long legged one a bit, going back to the first idea i had of the gigantic rifle.. I often like to not represent obvious weapons on some miniatures, but the silhouette here was to good to not choose this one!.. Again, the colors are the same as always.. I might wanna be more adventurous at some point, maybe!..

And again, a few shot of them in situ.

And finally, following a question i was asked on a forum, and a strange idea that it might be interesting, i did a video of the painting of the big one.. I don’t know a lot about video, and surely don’t know how to paint under a camera! If you have any feedback, feel free!

Hope you find it interesting!.. Have a nice week!

 

Little boxes and small trip.

This is a small update for two little boxes i made to move my minis form some place to another in a cool way. I saw things like this around the internet, and always thought that it was a brilliant idea – if i find some links back, i’ll update the post. And in the same movement, i’ll use this boxes this weekend for a trip to the Warhammer World i was thinking about for a long time. The Pilgrym exhibition there is a perfect excuse, if i needed any! Maybe i’ll have the opportunity to meet some of you there? Let me know if that would be the case!

For now, here are the boxes in some Wip stages and with the miniatures in them. There should soon be an update on the Many Faces of the Vox Populii thing i guess..

Oh, and have a wonderful year, please!

Silver Tower: Heroes and WIP

Hi there!

Here’s the rest of the cast of the Silver Tower, and some more things.

I kept the heroes mainly as they were, with a few minor tweaks with the Dwarf’s torch, and the Dark Elf chest plate. Only the Warpriest isn’t here in his original incarnation. I think the mini is too heroic for a mere human. Even if the setting isn’t the same as the Old World, i can’t imagine a human in Warhammer being sane and healthy. So i made one from scratch. I also like that he’s a lot smaller than all the other heroes. It make their huge size more obvious!

Baraelf Dwaelf Eterpriest

And this are some more character i wanted to make. The necromancer is a favorite of mine since i spent a lot of time in front of Diablo 2 when i was younger, so i had to make one. The Wight King was an obvious companion for him!

Necro1 Necro2 Necro3 Necro4King1 King2 King3 King4

The Chaos Lord was a thing i wanted to make for some time also. I always loved Archaon’s story and miniatures. The last one is gorgeous, but i think he kind of disappear behind the huge three headed monster. So i did my own Archaon-like Lord. The base mini is really awesome, and is a pleasure to built. It was also the first attempt to change a miniature more with greenstuff than with kit bashing.

Chaos1 Chaos2 Chaos3

The Beastman is another favorite of mine, inspired by the illustration of Morghur in the old army book. Here again, i find his story fascinating, but didn’t really liked the miniature. I saw on the internet some doing their own version of him, so i tried the same. I think i never spent so much time sculpting things than on this one, and i rather enjoyed it, even if it’s a long process!

Morghur1 Morghur2 Morghur3 Morghur4

And lastly is a Skaven Greyseer from a long time ago, when we wanted to play standard Warhammer battles. We didn’t went as far in than with 40k, but i’m still hoping to convince some friends to try Age of Sigmar!

Thank you for passing by! Take care!

Civilians and dwarves.

Here are some other ones i’ve been thinking about for some time.

I wanted to make these little dwarves for some time, as i really liked the illustrations in one of the 40k rulebook – i never remember which book is which edition – and i think they really participate of the atmosphere. Hiding in the background, marking skulls or being just weird. So here are 5 of them.

Dwarves1.1 Dwarves1.2 Dwarves1.3 Dwarves1.4

And these are more common citizens of the hive city. I tried to make them a little weird also. I don’t think anyone truly sane could survive in such a universe.. The hard thing with these guys, as for the dwarves, was to use arms without any weapon. Most of the arms i have in my bit box used to hold weapon, so i have to make them hold something, interesting, credible but not too important.. That’s why i love the ghouls arms. Just open hands. So great!

Civils1.1 Civils1.2 Civils1.3 Civils1.4 Civils1.5 Civils1.6

Hope you like them. Have a good evening!

Still here, some wips

Hello!
I’ve been away from my miniature desk for some months now. I had to deal with some turns in my life, but recent events made me comfortable enough to go back to cutting plastic and assembling it back together without guilt! And i really missed that!
So apologies for my lack of activities here or around the web, i hope i’ll catch everything that happened since then.
Here are some pictures of a warband i wanted to make for some time. I plan of making a few more small warbands with good themes and mood to introduce my friends to InqMunda i think – we have been playing mostly HoR Kill Team for now.
This one is the team of Lord Istaar, a radical Inquisitor from the Ordo Malleus. He was tricked by a daemon after trying to control it, and his body started to eat itself from the inside. Using a rare empyrean shards and some brutal technology, his acolyte Cylee was able to maintain him alive, sharing his life force with his master. Reduced to a state of parasite, Istaar and the few members of his team still able to support his disturbing aura investigated to find more of that combustible, trying to slow down the effect of the self eating process while finding a cure, and a way to take his revenge on the warp creature responsible of his state. This quest lead them to the drowned city of Ib-26.
Here’s the model of Istaar and Cylee, that i wanted to make for some time now.

They will still have some changes until the painting phase i think.. Surely..

Here’s one of the unlucky mutated inhabitant of Ib-26, local guide for the Inquisitor. He has some of this warp shards in his flesh. These shards will be the Mordheim’s Warpstone of the hive if we ever start a campaign down there. I’ll write seriously about this one day!..

Mutant1.1 Mutant1.2 Mutant1.3

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, i’ve been away from my camera as well!..

And here’s a rather simple ganger from another hive. I don’t have any background for him, but i’ll think about it while putting down things around Ib-26 and the territories around.

Ganger1.2 Ganger1.3 Ganger1.4 Ganger11

Thank you for passing by! Have a nice day!

Some doodles.

Another thing that i’ve been thinking for a while, is gathering all the doodles and illustrations touching the 40k universe i have done. I’ve been around it for some time now, and studying the rule books and their illustrations is an important memory, as it’s a big part of my will to learn drawing and becoming an illustrator.

This late title is still something i work on and ask myself a lot about – but for now, here are some of this drawings and more are on the gallery. So there’s some Mechanicum, Servo-skulls,  imperial civilians of the Many Faces of the Vox Populii, and some researches for the biggest element of my hive-city board.
