Fyreslayers

Hello!

A friend recently purchased the Shadespire box and convinced me to try a game. It was a nice occasion to try to build a few Fyreslayers, a faction i like a lot, without really knowing why. I guess i like what they could be, and so i tried to join the idea i have of them for the Chosen Axes box.

My first idea was to give them key holes instead of faces, as they are carrying giant key axes, but my skills with greenstuff weren’t enough to match the idea. So i used a circle from a plastic tube on their cut faces, and filled the mess with greenstuff. Voilà!

I changed my website a bit, and put my instagram page on the front so the new things can come first. Do not hesitate if you have any opinion on the subject, i am in no way a web designer!

Thanks you for passing by!

Nestorian Infestation and some wips

Hello!

I already showed this on Facebook, but here are a few more picture of the team for the Nestorian Infestation. Two guys disappeared, and a new one appeared. Wasn’t sure about the two others, and i started the box without thinking of the number of mini i could put into. So i had to adapt a few things!

 

And a few pictures of the process. The Agrellan earth wasn’t dry at the moment of the picture!

Thank you for passing by, have a great week!

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!

Sylvaneth warband

Here are some pictures on the full Sylvaneth warband i finished this week. We tried the skirmish rules, and i really love them! I’ll maybe see to be able to use some of the fancy Sylvaneth rules..

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!

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 – Done

 

 

Here’s the weird warband done! I really enjoyed doing more flesh than metallic wires for a time!.. And as promised, a few narrative lines.. As english is not my language, i hope there is not too much aberrations here also!..

 


 

Deep under the Realm of Life, runs the River of Flesh. Hopefully, most of it flows underground, so rare are the ones who have to bear its presence. But i came across of it. Twice. So i know. 

Listen, if you see the river once, and live to tell the story, you won’t be able to find it again at the same place. It moves. You see, the river is living. I don’t understand how. Maybe it’s just a giant fleshy thing that slowly crawls under the surface spreading stench and horror on its way. 

That’s what I told everyone there, when i came back alone. All the others were gone. You wouldn’t believe what happen to them. But when i tried to show where it all happened, all there was left was the piles of living aberrant flesh here and there, and the smell. No one believed me. 

But then, a second time i went across the river. So i know.

I don’t want to know too much. I heard stories. No one knows where the rivers goes to. Is there a living sea? Is there a giant creature blindly eating the flesh? But there has to be a source. All living thing, when living too long, starts to grow too much. The flesh can go as crazy as the mind. And land is old. Older than you think. And who knows what was there before there even was a land? So there is a source. 

I think.. I don’t know what i saw exactly, but do you think that the source of a living river could be something that walks. And talks? I can still here its voice. No, you wouldn’t believe me. But i know. I saw the crawling tumor. I saw its children. I heard its voice. No one believes me.

 


Most of them don’t talk. Some make strange noises, like a hissing complaint. But it’s mostly silence. I got used to it. It’s not like i got to talk to a lot of people before. Normal people. Well, i guess you understand. After all, your first reaction was the same as everyone else. 

I can’t blame you. With all the things we see outside. It’s only because i’m a part of it that i’m still alive. In that sense, i may be more normal than you, out there.

But you know, don’t you? The land is not crowded. It’s usually good to avoid people. So when you come across someone, of something, the first reaction is mistrust. And it’s usually a good thing. But sometime even the big ones, the ones that can scare the most hateful crowd, can feel something, can feel hurt. Well, it’s hard to explain unless you see it. And you couldn’t. But sometimes, something happens, and the family grows bigger. 

Yes, family. Strange isn’t it?

The hooded doesn’t talk either, but he whispers in your head. In that way, he says a lot. Sometimes, he scares me. He knows that, but he’s full of forgiveness for his children. He shows pictures from his mind, visions. Maybe it’s the future. Or is it the past? Is it something he wants to achieve? 

I don’t really know why, but even if the visions are haunting, i understand them. 

He says that we are his children, and that he made us as he wanted us to be. I know that it can’t be true. How could it be? But i know that in a mysterious way, i am contributing to his vision. I’m a part of his family. And for that reason, he will soon be here. I guess you could run, but what good would come out of it? Running won’t save you. Time won’t save you. You’re all going to die. We will feast on your flesh, and will continue our journey. We survive, and we do have a purpose. Do you?

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!

 

Magos Grievv and the Exploratory Choir.

Here’s the last Magos done, and a picture of the six adepts i made so far. I thought that, since i have some sceneries just waiting for dust around me, i could use them to take moody pictures of the miniatures in situ..

And in another way. i’m really enthusiast about the Dark Age of Sigmar movement initiated by Bruticus! I love seeing all the new things around the web, and i’ll try to make some things in that way, expanding the things i did for Warhammer Quest!..

Take care of you!
