First Post!

Hello!

The name is actually Marcus, but marco works better when constructing catchy webpage names. I prefer to be called Marcus though(yes this situation is not as streamlined as it could be)

I’ve been converting and concepting a lot of warhammer miniatures for the past year and a half or so, but I’ve never felt a need to show them.

Until now!

The fantastic group effort known as The Pilgrym and the wonderful people behind it has inspired me to start this blog. If you haven’t seen it go check it out now at ironsleet, it’s as rad as all hell! in the spirit of the reason for me actually getting off my ass and stopping lurking in the shadows, I’d like to start out the blogging by posting a fan art piece I made with the Pilgym setting in mind.

This blog will be an attempt at getting closer to the heartwarming community around INQ28.

The blog will showcase my conversions, sculpts and sometimes painted art. Painted art like the thing above and conversions like the thing below

  1. That artwork is gorgeous, and the conversion looks incredible! As someone who’s recently started blogging you’re doing a very good thing starting this, it gives such a burst of motivation. I’ll be keeping a very close eye on this 🙂

  2. My first comment seems to have wandered off… Fantastic artwork and an incredibly intricate conversion! As somebody that’s recently started a blog, you won’t regret making this. I’ve had such a huge boost of motivation since starting. I’ll be keeping an eye out for your updates! 🙂

    1. again; thank you!
      actually I’ve been feeling a bit weird about the blogging, due to the fact that I discovered that taking photos of your own models often(read; always) ends up in disappointment.
      But I’ll get the hang of it soon enough hopefully!

      I’ve taken a bunch of wip shoots so I’ll probably post them later today

      cheers!

      1. Well, if it’s any consolation the picture you’ve put up is very exciting. I can’t wait to see more 🙂
        I know the feeling though, that’s one of the reasons I take my pictures in such poor lighting!

  3. Wow, what an excellent start to a blog! The artwork is wonderfully creepy and unsettling. All of the gloomy and grim facemasks make for an evocative piece. The model is great too, a nice combination of different models, that were modeled together just that it hardly even looks like a conversion. I particularly like the collar you added!

  4. This is amazing!! More civilian like, lesser armed models often have so much more personality and impact actually. Hope you can send a model or two to our game and would love to feature this in our blog too 🙂

    1. Thank you so so much!
      I completely agree with you!
      I feel that if you have a genetically engineered war god, e.g. a space marine, you should have about 5-7 unarmed priests and administrative officials skulking around him to counterweigh his grotesque capacity for combat.
      I’d feel honoured to be featured on your blog!
      I’ll absolutely send you guys a model once I’ve got some of them painted up

      Cheers!

  6. OMG Marcus, that is really amazing. I feel sick. Talent overload! That artwork is superb, as is the conversion. I love the cabling. Keep up the good work, looking forward to your contribution to Pilgrym.

    Interesting comments about photographing your miniatures… I think it’s psychological, the difference between squinting at them with the naked eye versus being recorded in flat detail. The black background, natural lighting and short depth of field all work fine here though. Remember, constructing a photograph is just the same as constructing a painting, but using different tools. Ok, not quite the same 🙂
