As some have noted this guy could have easily been made into a mhorrigotii character, but in the end it felt more interesting to do a really sinister imperial gribbly...
Here's the whole gang. More to come - an explorator and a mechanicvm-affiliated mercenary are some of the minis being worked on...
Bloody gorgeous. Group as well! Glad you kept him as an Imperial badass.ReplyDelete
Looking very much forward to the explorator and mercenary :)
Cheers mate! Yeah - he fits in well with the rest of the man-machines.Delete
That gang really looks the business. Each character is very distinctive, but they clearly fit together at the same time. Great work!ReplyDelete
That was the idea! Thanks mate!Delete
Great job Jeff! With the speed you've built and finished these are we looking at an actual army soon? ;)ReplyDelete
Well... Maybe not an army per se, but a slightly larger warband perhaps. We'll see...Delete
Fantastic. The blues really pop, and bring the group together.ReplyDelete
I promise to let the blue be on my next project... ;-)Delete
Excellent group picture. They all fit in, but they all are individuals.ReplyDelete
I do rather like those ruddy browns, the assassin is so subtle and clever a conversion it looks like it could of been done straight out of the box!ReplyDelete
Do you have any thoughts on the upcoming Cult Mechanicus kits?
I like the new kits. I'm especially surprised at how much I like the kastellan robots now that I've seen good pictures of them ( even though I think they would have been even cooler if GW had stuck with the baroque design aesthethic set down in the earlier kits)
Fantastic. Very varied... and unified at the same time. Superb.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jakob! Glad you like 'em buddy!Delete
Wowsers - brilliant stuff again mate. Both he and the group look stunning and tie together really well. Awesome job.ReplyDelete
Thanks Muppet! Glad you dig!Delete
He looks great dude, very creepy. Love the big stormfiend conversion too.ReplyDelete
And I didn't see grimdark R2 before!
I call him Delta-Secundus. He really is my favourite...Delete
Absolutely scary and gorgeous at the same time!!ReplyDelete
Fantastic work! I'm really looking forwards to the next update.ReplyDelete
I'm working on a project myself, that would look nice on a similar kind of base. Would you mind sharing how you did them?
It´s a rather longwinded but fairly straightforward process.Delete
I glue some stones/pebbles to the base and perhaps something interesting - like a big cog or what have you.
Then I paint the entire thing with citadel agrellan earth. After that I add some patches of blackfire earth texture paint. When dry, I give all the rocky areas a wash of typhus corrosion. After that I wash the whole thing with sepia and then drybrush the base with bone.
I often go in and tone the base with other washes in some places after that, then drybrush again and so on - it´s a back and forth process.
Oh! Forgot the most important thing!Delete
When everything is done I wash Vallejo Iron Oxide Pigment over and around the rocky areas and on the lover parts of the minis legs to represent dust. I also go back and redo the drybrush highlights after that.
I know I said that he looked like a Mhorrigotii cultist earlier but that image has been entirely replaced by the paint job and the company of his friends. Okay, maybe not entirely but still.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see the Explorator and the mercenary. I love the concept of a mercenary and it can only get better when seen through a Gothic lens and that lens only gets better when sprinkled with the cult Mechanicus.
Also I have to ask if you though about making the Explorator an Archmagos, someone to act as a figurehead that could bring all of these diverse characters together. Much like an inquisitor I suppose.
Hmmm... An Archmagos honestly seems like a little too powerful a figure to lead this rag tag team. I think a "normal" Explorator magos will do fine.Delete
Very nice and singular warband!ReplyDelete
My favorite is probably the Skeletor for he looks truly aggressive.
Good job dude!

I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of theReplyDelete
liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
