An apple a day...

...keeps the cult biologis fleshseer away.


Well, that was quick! 

I like how this guy turned out - he's got a very puritan air, but the hunched posture and slightly off proportions hint at mutation. 

He shall be known as "Thunder" as an homage to a character from a swedish radio show that you've probably never heard of.

Book and Hammer

Huzza! Two new inquisitorial retuine members join the ranks.

The guy with the book is a revised version of a priest conversion I did this summer that never felt right for some reason. 

I like his moustasche... Makes him look like Sam Elliot.

It's a wrack, people!!

I took a break from the truscale marines that's been my main focus the past months - wanted to do something completely different...

The result was this rather creepy looking wrack to go with the serpentine Acothyst made a while ago. 

I think this'll be the blueprint for all my wracks - it's really a pretty simple conversion, but nonetheless quite effective.

Metal warrior

Oh yeah. I listened to Manowar as a kid. Wanna make something of it?

Here's Iron Father Theremine in a more-or-less finished state: 

I say more-or-less as there's a few details left but I sort of got bored on the finishing line. Gonna leave him be for awhile a focus on something else.

More machine now than man

Finally some real progress on the Iron Hand marine:

I think he's imposing enough to be an Iron Father. As most of my names are nicked from music history in one way or another, I find "Iron Father Theremine" quite fitting.

To be or not to be

Yes, I know Hamlet doesn't say those lines while holding "The Skull", but I squandered the correct quote on the last post.

Anyway - the Iron Hand conversion is nearing completion.

I have to admit I'm really, really, pleased with this conversion. 
It's like a little one-model diorama... 
And, although the "contemplating a skull" pose may be a rather overused cliché it works here nonetheless. 

I'll add some details like rivets and a parchment or two, but apart from that it's more or less done. 

Jobs a good 'un.

Alas, poor Yorick...

Here's the true scale Iron Hand I was talking about earlier:

I really like the Iron Hands with all that grim-dark mechanicus stuff going on. One of the few marine chapters apart from Grey Knights (and a few others) I find truly compelling from a modelling perspective. 


Here's a take with a different pose and head. 

Sense of scale


Haven't had as much hobbytime as usual - hence the (at least for me) rather sporadic communiques...

I have had some time for hobbying though, and that's been spent on creating two new truescale Mortifactor marines ( on none other than Inq 28s Commisar Molotovs suggestion) tthat'll serve as NPC characters in a game of inquisimunda at Warhammer World  this month. More on this later on.

Anyway, on to the pics - here's the first one , "Sargeant Danzig":

And here's the second one (obviously a work in progress):

I've gone completely nuts for these truescale marines lately (as you might have noticed) and are also working on two other ones - a Deathwatch killteam member and an Iron Hand marine of some sort.
