And they shall know no fear

Wow. Haven´t updated this poor blog since mid-april. I guess time flies when your work consists of drawing pterodactyls...

But - nothing to shake one out of ones hobby slump like the arrival of GW´s first official true scale marines!

As far as I'm concerned the sculptors utterly nailed the stature and proportions of these guys - they´re exactly as big as I've always felt an astartes should be. The primaris are simply great models (if a bit too "techy" for my taste). The contrived background for them is another story, but that´s been discussed to death elsewhere. I´m just gonna ignore it and view these as regular properly dimensioned marines.

So without further ado here´s my first take on the new and improved defenders of humanity. It's built straight out of the box, apart from the helmet which I swapped for a Mk IV (my favourite mark).






The iconography and paint scheme was inspired in part by the bearded true scale Questing Grey Knight I did a few years ago. https://convertorum.blogspot.se/2013/10/good-knight-part-iii.html

Not sure about what I should call the chapter, but leaning towards "Metatron something, something" (Metatron as we all know being the biblical archangel acting as The Voice of God). Either Knights of Metatron or Sons of Metatron - or simply the Metatron chapter. Something along those lines at least.

Plagueborg

I've got a huge and rather different Nurgle project in the pipeline. 

More on this soon, but as a warm up I cobbled together this plagueborg for my long gestating nurgly dark mechanicvm gang. He/it came out slightly more saturated than his fellows, but I'm still pretty pleased with the result.

Second mini of 2017

Hi guys! 

Yes yes. It's been very quiet, I know. Haven't done much hobbying lately, but a new exiting communal project "Tor Megiddo" masterminded by Alexander jolted me back into action. Check it out here: http://s3.zetaboards.com/The_Ammobunker/topic/9023310/1/

Just to get back on the horse I picked up an unpainted mercenary and slapped on some paint. Not my best work but it was fun to break out the brushes and just zone out. 



More to come soon. 

Hopefully.

I'm in White Dwarf (again)

I finally got my hands on the february issue of White Dwarf (the mag's been sold out in every hobby store in Stockholm). Apart from the rather nice feature on The Fracture of Biel-Tan, this month sees a new installment of Blanchitsu with yet another look at some of the retinues from the Pilgrym game. 


And lo and behold - this time the focus is on my Black Ship crew along with Migs Alpha Legion. I'm very pleased with the article - the pictures turned out great and the text really gives you a good understanding of the faction and their agenda. 
 

This marks the fourth time in as many years I'm featured in WD if my calculations are correct. Yay for me!

Inquisitorial infiltrator

Finished up this guy rather quickly. First mini of 2017 done!

Didn't manage to replicate that nice grey hue of the shotgun wielding veterans robes (though not for lack of trying) - but apart from that he turned out pretty much as planned. 

I see this guy as an inquisitoral acolyte infiltrating the mercenaries. The question is which master he serves and what his mission is...
