Ex Profundis, gangers and two invitationals.


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!


Voici quelques photos qu’une machines qui rejoindra les rangs des Many Faces of the Vox Populii, nommée d’après un excellent album d’Atrium Carceri, que je conseille vivement à tout le monde. Cette sentinelle d’origine, qui devait finir en machine du Mechanicus avant que ne sortent les Ironstriders, est inspirée par un vieux croquis qui date de quelques temps déjà. La récente machine-relique de Cedric Lurkin qu’on peut apercevoir sur le blog Opus Maius m’a également beaucoup impressionné! Et motivé par son aspect non guerrier, j’ai décidé d’en faire un élément civil. C’est en choisissant le double crâne du serviteur de tête que m’est venu le nom de Many Faces of the Vox Populii. Je m’étais déjà imaginé faire une machine hurleuse qui serait la voix du peuple, la voici en l’état, avec de nombreux visages!

Cinquième serviteur


voici un nouveau serviteur, qui comme le premier, vient d’un croquis que j’ai fais il y a quelques temps. Du coup, je met le croquis ici aussi! Comme pour les sculptures, il m’arrive de faire des croquis avant de bricoler une figurine, mais je me laisse souvent simplement emporter, par des assemblages de pièces ici, ou des formes, des mouvements pour les sculptures. Je trouve assez intéressant de voir les deux processus en parallèle, qui ont des origines et des développements similaires, et des résultats différents. Mmh.. Voilà!

Et le croquis dont lui et le premier serviteur ont été inspirés.
