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!

 

Rad Scavengers and two other.

Hi there!
Here are some work in progress thing.

The first two are an inspiration from the brilliant Unity short movie and some other things. I imagined them walking silently in the toxic wasteland surrounding the Ib-26 Hive-City, being slowly attracted by the huge amount of weird radiation coming out of it. There may be smaller recruits in an incertain futur, as these guys are quite big. But i like to think of them alone in the scenery.. I draw a first version of them some times ago on my instagram account. I sometime post here some ideas i have about miniatures, if that could be interesting for some of you =)

The next one is a Magos that came out of the recent acquisitions i made at the Warhammer World, and i played with obvious bits i had from the Magos Dominos. I imagine him moving and coughing like General Grievous in Star Wars, a splendid character !

And i did this one in 2 minutes last night, as i just worked on 3 big figures. I like to remind myself what i could look like if i were surrounded by this kind of monstrous abhuman monsters.. I think i’ll make more of this classic acolytes in drapes we can see in some illustrations, waving banners or purity seals.. Nothing fancy for now, but thinking about it!

Have a great weekend!

Civilians, dwarves and hired guns.

Hi!

I recently had a painting madness and finished some old things that were waiting on my desk.

Civil2.1 Civil2.2 Civil2.3 Civil3.1 Civil3.2 Civil3.3 Civil3.4

Dwarves1.1 Dwarves1.2 Dwarves1.3

I also think i finally could motivate a friend to try the narrative ways of InqMunda. We worked together on his first retinues, and if he’s ok with that, i will show them here one they’re done. And i worked on my own gang to experiment the game with him. I went for some kind of mercenaries, hired by a rogue trader to find something in the ruins of the hive-city. I wanted to be able to identify myself with the characters, something i cannot really do with servitors or Mechanicum Magii. Everything was rather quickly done, so i don’t have any WIP pictures for them.

The first will be the leader of the gang. An experienced hired gun that doesn’t want to be here, but doesn’t have the choice. I wanted him to be a little bit fearful, so i gave him things to see in the dark and to breath in corrosive conditions. i’ll have to write something about them also, one day 😉

The second is a more bold one that doesn’t fear close combat.

And the third is the greedy one. He’s here for the money, and will do the job if it’s worth enough.

That’s it for now! I’m currently thinking of the next gaming board i’ll work on, and i’ll try to have some updates here with WIP stages..

Have a great weekend!

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!

Hope you like them. Have a good evening!

Reliquae

Hi here!

Here’s the Reliquae finished. Nothing too complicated, i have some difficulties trying something new with the colors, as i fear making things too shiny..

The Reliquae was a holy propaganda engine used by the government of Ib-26 before the catastrophe known as the Shiver. After the fled of the authorities, the walker was hijacked by the inhabitant into diffusing their own propaganda. With the time, the lack of maintenance and the recent strange events, the engine fell in madness, walking randomly in the alleys screaming senseless diatribes.

Now, the appearance of the Reliquae is a sign of change, good or bad, for the neighborhood. Trying to bring the favors of the forgotten holy man stuck into the machinery on themselves, the civilians run next to the screaming mass of metal to hang prayers parchment on it, at the risk of falling under its stomping feet.

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.

Herbert the Wheels

Voici le premier membre peint des civils de la Vox Populii, Herbert the Wheels. Dément paranoïaque itinérant, Herbert ère dans les rues dévastées de la basse ville, à la recherche de quiconque prêt à bien vouloir faire semblant d’écouter ses histoires terrifiantes d’incohérences, ou  qui voudra bien lui payer une tournée ou huit dans l’espoir d’enfin réussir à le faire taire.

Reliquiae

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!
