Mars

more or less finished my hunchback techpriest. Flash photography is not kind. I’ll try to photo him tomorrow during daylight… Ugh…

wip 21

Got help with painting gold on the grenade launcher from the talented Toni.

Tried to paint quickly and expressionistic using lotso different washes, it was fun. Getting more hyped about painting red bases for my Martian-techno-barbarians.

Speaking of with blu-tacked this guy:

Lodge warrior from the Thunder Kings inner circle. (again ignore the leg part)

I’m pretty happy with the archeotech plasma pistol.

MARS 01 DYNASTY

As the rad-shields fell, we rose!

From verdant earth to red sand. From weakness to strength.

Beat the drum! Toll the great bell! Let the Electric pulse claim your flesh and veins!

Ignite! Ignite! Ignite!

WE ARE OFF FOR A THUNDER RUN!!

The Electro-King, Arche-Node Phi, to his band of warbrothers before their raid of radiation shelter +28-43-omega+

Saw this awsome post by Alex over at Leadballoony. It reminded me of an old idea that I used to tinker with. A warband from the period when the Cult Mechanicus was just about to see the light of day on the soil of Mars. Techno-tribes and mech-barbarian warlords vying for power in the red apocalyptic wasteland. Mutants and men who would form the foundation of The Mechanicum.

Now I’m back on this idea in full swing (don’t worry I’m gonna finish my HARVSPEX first). Eighties hair for the warrior cults! Strange mutated proto-techpriests! Archeotech weaponry and strange magnetic dreams of a “hollow serpent”! A great King of Mars and his trusted warband.

I’ll want to bring in rad visual influences from the new mad max movie and oldhammer/rogue-trader retro feelings.

I got myself exited!

Here’s some concepts of a heavy warrior from the Hollow Serpent lodge:

My only worry is that I’ll miss the absence of servoskulls and other classical w40k imperial iconography…

cobbled together a mini with the use of the new genestealer bodies (don’t look at his legs, They are completely temporary and will be replaced by something that looks like the legs in my concepts above)

Let me know what you think guys!

More Wips

I’m back from Stockholm. I’ve been bogged down with work the past few days, so I haven’t done much warhammering.

But I’ve thrown together some fresh wips for ya all.

wip 16 wip 15

An ancient techpriest, a Forgeworld elder. This was an old model I made almost one year ago. I made it mostly to practice greenstuffing cloth and such. spruced it up slightly in the past day and base coated it. Now I’ll use it to practice painting:) the circle is complete.

.ARIMEKTES SYL.

An armoured Explorator, perhaps previously a Skitarii vanguard commander. I’m gonna do some more work on his arms and stomach, but hopefully I’ll have him ready for paint before too long…

wip 17 wip 14

Two tack concepts. The first one is a rough bitzconcept of how I might make the AVGVR DOMINVS that I mentioned in a previous post.

The second one is some kind of Psyker/witch huntress. Many of the bitz are placeholders right now. I’m going to sculpt a lot in greenstuff and try to make her reminiscent of a Sister of Silence.

EDIT:

since people’s been asking what’s up with the huntress here are some (suuuper rough) concepts for how  I intend to make her look
