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!)

  1. What an amazing post!

    I love the sylvaneth warband! We are about to start an Aos Skirmish campaign set in an endless malignant forest. I may try to build a few woodland *things*, inspired by your models! 😉

    The boxes are beautiful – in a horrible grimdark way – I need to think about a more atmospheric transport and storage solution for my Inq28 efforts!

    • Thanks you WarbossKurgan!
      I just saw your post about the campaign, i’ll follow this with deep interest! I look forward to see what you will come with!
      Yep’ i like the boxes format! I can make a little scenery in a much smaller space than a whole board! I’ll definitely make a few more!

  2. The Sylvaneth warband nicely straddles the line between suitably leafy and super creepy — love what you’ve done with the Blightking head with the antlers!

    Those travel boxes, though? Incredible stuff! Like something straight out of the best 40k artwork — and I am getting such a Lament configuration vibe from the first box in its closed version. My only – very minor – gripe is that it feels like the paintjob could have been ever so slightly less monochromatic, if that makes any sense. But it propbably was a stylistic choice, right?

    In any case, brilliant work! 🙂

    • Thanks a lot KrautScientist!
      I still have to find how to paint the sylvaneth, but i have for them the same problem you noticed for the box. I fall in the monochromatic mainly because i fear that too much colors would ruin the atmosphere. I admire those who can use color and still have a grim vibe!
      Strangley, starting the sylvaneth was an attempt to try something else like a major scale instead of a minor one.. But i’m still not sure it’s the right thing to do with all this!
      In any way, thank you for your support 🙂

      • I see what you mean. Maybe a possible solution would be to just introduce on or two additional colours for starters and keep the palette fairly limited — which, by the way, is always a good idea 😉 But that would give you the opportunity to experiment in a « secure setting » , so to speak, and if you don’t like the results, it should be easy enough to make everything monochromatic again 😉

        The obvious idea, for instance, would be to use a good strong red for wax seals and eye lenses on your transport boxes: That would make for a bit of pop, while still maintaining a very limited, graphical style — but that’s just an example of what I am getting at.

        Anyway, hope this helps! 🙂

        • It helps indeed, thank you very much 🙂
          I tried to apply your advices yesterday on the first sylvaneth, and for now it’s ok i guess! I’ll see what it looks like on bigger miniatures, and on the next boxes!
          Again, thank you kindly!

  3. Stunning conversions , that warband just oozes character.
    The boxes are wonderful, love the grimy industrial look and the lighting. The small (tobacco?) tin is nice, I’ve been wanting to make little vignettes like that to display in my cabinet, just trying to find the drive to get on with projects at the moment.
    Thank you for your inspirational work 🙂
