Comtessa Sarastra of House Granicus

In just a few days the ambitious Pilgrym project will reach it´s conclusion in Nottingham after half a year of frantic planning and modelling in basements and workrooms scattered across the western hemisphere.

I´m leaving for England in about twelve hours and just finished the last member of my Black Arke crew - the navigator Comtessa Sarastra of house Granicus.






She really feels like the perfect mini to cap off my part of the project. Eldritch and otherwordly she towers over even Lazaros himself.

Here´s Lazaros and crew in a group shot. I´m quite pleased with how they look all together - the more limited black/red palette makes them a lot more unified than my retinues usually are. I´m sure there´s a lesson to be learned here somewhere...


And here´s my small contribution to Terras teeming masses of pilgrim NPCs. They´re just two but I think that they compensate that with an abundance of character...


Now I´d better start packing! I´ll be back with a report from the game itself soon.

  2. The knight is still my favourite of the bunch; an absolute triumph.

    The whole crew are incredible, though. 4 days and counting! I'd better get a shift on.

    1. The Knight is 40k in a nutshell somehow. Should have bought a box of bretonnians before they went the way of the dodo...

      Go man go!

  3. She's wonderful. That tiny arm is just creepy, but I like it.

    Can't wait to read your report on how your trip goes!

    1. Thanks Dai! The yucky little wrack arm really was "the dot above the i", as we say in Sweden.

  4. Fantastic Jeff, great finale for your crew with what is now one of my favorite "Vader pieces" - and it just goes to show that there's a lot of mileage left in the admech line :)

    1. Thanks! She did turn out quite different from most other dominus conversions I've seen, so I'm glad I went with that solution in the end.

  6. Fantastic crew. I think your warbands always come from those kind of events.

  9. these are incredible. Really great work. Individually excellent and as a unit, the whole composition is even better. I think my favourite is the converted gene stealer cult fella. Inspired!

    1. Haha! Thanks mate. Though except for Lazaros they're pretty much all converted gene cultists...

  10. I love the design on Comtessa Sarastra's robe! Subtle but really striking.

    I genuinely cannot wait to see how the Pilgrym game plays out. I'm really looking forward to seeing the photos of scenery and models together and reading (several?) reports of the narrative.

  12. You all have been doing such amazing work. Between the your blog and the Iron Sleet page I have started getting back into the hobby. Y'all are great! Thanks for putting so much hard work into these.
