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!
