The Soldier

Not much to say about this guy, he’s a simple kitbash I painted to keep my painting hand warm. I’d like to write a short story revolving around him at some point (I like his old world uniform and crap equipment) but it’ll probably never happen. We’ll see!

Anyway, have a look and let me know what you think.

Ostium Guide: The Siren.

OSTIUMGUIDE.jpg

She knows these grounds. She walked these paths when the metallic ground was still shining;
brushed past the sallow trees when they were but saplings. She glided small-footed through
the jade green courtyard, and giggled falsely at the foolish patrons.

But now the paths are rotting, and the saplings, ancient and insurmountable. The perfect
turf replaced by a thick maze of cruel thorns; The once loving clients little more than
crumbling bones in the oil soaked ground. Her beauty, like the paths she follows, has
long since faded.

But she knows these grounds. And for a meager fee, you can too…

Here we go! My first finished model for Mark’s (heresyofus.com) great Chapel project.

As always, honest thoughts are very welcome

 

Those who would purge the chapel

I managed to pinch my camera from work for a few hours so I could grab some images of the start of my chapel warband, including their mysterious escort. The Ostium Guide was completed really quickly, but I wasn’t happy with the arms so they both got lopped off. This is where she stands at the moment. I’ll be adding a few flaming servo skulls and -fingers crossed- something akin to the penitent engine.

Outgard

Hello all! I’m happy to say my contributions have finally arrived for the Outgard game, unfortunately too late to make a difference. Anyway, I thought you might like to see some images of the finished models.

With this, the now past Pilgrim game and the recent Chapel game being organised I’ve found a big love for collaborative projects like these. The hobby is just so much better when you have people to share it all with.

I know I don’t comment on things as often as I should, but you’ve all been doing brilliant work and I’ve been inspired by each and every one of you.

My god I miss posting.

 

 

A shout out to heresyofus.com

Hello all! I haven’t posted in a while as my camera is broken, but I want to tell you all about a fantastic blog that you might not have seen. It’s called heresyofus.com and, like most modelling blogs, showcases the conversions and creations of a particularly talented modeller. He combines dirty painting with imaginative conversions, but with an extra trick up his sleeve; unique casted parts. And as we speak he’s doing a giveaway of said parts. Go and check it out, and if you like what you see then send him an email. You won’t be disappointed.

Outgard and an update

Hello everyone! As some of you might know, I’ve been making a skeletal warrior for use in the upcoming Outgard game. But that’s not all; here are a few other models I’ve been tinkering with for the game. They’re not done yet but at least you can get a rough idea of what I’m aiming for.

And then there’s these two. The one on the left is the spirit of a hanging tree, the one on the right a devoted fanatic for my inquisitorial retinue.

Let me know what you think!

 

Cosmic Hermit

Where does the time go? It feels like I only posted a few days ago but here we are a few weeks since my last update. I’ve worked on two models in my brief absence, this, and a skeletal warrior I’ll be posting on the Outgard thread over on Ammobunker (if you haven’t seen it, check it out).

This lone hermit claims to have fallen from the sky itself, and claims to be kin with the vicious phantoms that inhabit that zone. But surely one shouldn’t believe the delusional ramblings of a crazy old man…

Whilst I really liked the conversion I can’t help but feel the finished article is a little underwhelming. I”ll probably come back to it when inspiration strikes me. Does anyone have any ideas on how to improve it?
