Splice-seer Genator Symmachus

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present Splice-seer Genator Symmachus. 

I see this guy as real mad scientist type. His vile techno-thaumaturgical experiments, among them the splicing of human and xenos biologies, has drawn the attention of both the Ordo Xenos, the Ordo Machinum, the mechanicvm itself and, alarmingly, the rogue inquisitor Carax. 





I really liked this conversion, but painting this mini was unfortunately a frustrating experience.  All the little bits sticking out of him made huge areas very hard to reach or at least get a good angle. This made me rush things a bit - it simply wasn't much fun so I just wanted to get it over with. 

I might go back to add a little more finish to some details, but for now he's done. 
Oh well - he turned out pretty good anyway, just not as good as I had wanted. 

The wierd blue miscolouring in the last picture is due to shadows from a secondary lamp.

  2. If that's a rushed paint job, I need to rush more! I really like this. Great conversion, and the paint on the spinal column and leather cowling looks especially organic in its weathered dinginess.

    1. Cheers mate.

      Originally I had planned to really take my time with this mini - do an effort to try to come as close as to GD standard as I possibly could. He turned out good, but I know I can do better.

    1. Thanks Tim! I tried to merge Jes's runes with symbols from Wayne Barlowe's Inferno drawings.

  5. As Fulgrim said, the Jes runes are really nice.
