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.

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 few squads and a new board.

Hi there!

It has been some time again since my last entry here, but i stayed productive in some way. I already showed a few things in the Facebook group pages, and here’s the rest of it..

First of all, nearly two years after the wasted foundations of Ib-26, a new board!

It’s really less ambitious than the hive-city, as i didn’t want to spend as much time on it, and wanted to be able to store it in my small flat. But i still wanted to to look cool, so i spent more time on small details here and there! I’ll show a few WIP soon!

It’s intended to play skirmish on it, maybe small games of Aos, but not sure there would be enough space. And to try this, here’s the Sylvaneth warband still waiting for a name and a story.

 

With the new edition of 40k, we had to try the new rules. Most of my « gaming » armies are stored in boxes now, so i assembled a few squads for the mechanicus. I tried to keep the spirit of the warband without getting as much in the details for each character. I’m in love with the Vostrayan, that were before the Skitarii and the recent madness from GW, the most 40k miniatures ever in my opinion!

I enjoyed the game, but the total mayhem of a squad versus another isn’t really my thing. Hopefully i’ll convince my friend to have a go at the new Necromunda!

Finally, this october, i joined the Inktober challenge with some 40k inspired drawings, i’ll see if i can show a gallery of them somewhere around here. You can see a lot of my drawings on my Instagram account of my Facebook page, if you fancy!

Thanks a lot for passing by!

Mutant Vostroyen

Bonjour,

J’ai toujours trouvé jusqu’à récemment que les Vostroyens reflétaient parfaitement l’atmosphere du 41ème millénaire, avec ses contrastes de matières, de technologies, d’imagerie. Les récents Skitarii ont réussi à faire au moins aussi bien! Mais c’est pour mêler ces deux factions dans ma bande du Méchanicum que j’ai bricolé ces jours le premier Vostroyen, forcément envahis de cables, forcément muté par les radiations – dans une mesure tolérée par la sainte Inquisition – et forcément basé sur le champion du chaos de Nurgle. J’ai hésité à lui sculpter la toque, emblématique des premiers-nés, puis me suis ravisé d’abord face à mon manque de compétence, et ensuite pour préserver la silhouette massive de la figurine de base. Je m’entrainerai sur d’autres figurines prochainement je pense! Voici les photos en attendant la peinture. Monologue terminé. Belle fin de semaine!
