With the growing back log of models sitting on my desk that need painting, it is wonder why I chose to convert and paint this in one evening. Well I can only put it down to the over powering need for BLOOD!! And maybe the desire to paint something red.
Not having painted red in awhile and with some models in the pipe line that need it I thought I’d give it a go again. So what to paint?……….. Khorne is red, red is Khorne. The only option really then is a Berzerker.
It felt good to paint him and it was a pretty quick method to, so I will be doing my Space Hulk Blood Angel Terminators the same way.
Hope you like him.
This is my project that uses kit bashing, sculpting and 3D printing.
The idea behind this model is to portray what a child would be like in the seething mass that is Terra.
A child is hope but that hope has already been damaged due to the harsh reality of his surroundings, his crude bionic leg is a testiment to that and the skull he cradles in his arms shows loss of a different more brutal kind.
His gaze is down cast and mournful but there is a peace to him, a resignation to the life he leads under the ever watchfull gaze of the Emperor in the decaying, sprawling halls of Terra.
The inspiration for this piece has been John Blanche and his ever inspirational art and figure painting, Ian Miller whos art is always at hand, and my fellow hobbyists who have embraced the Pilgryme path and continue to push the boundries of this hobby that we so dearly love. Your creativity knows no bounds and I thank you for being awesome.
Next pictures to come will be painted ones!
The Harpy of Gelleth Prime.
I did this picture this morning showing the Harpy on her homeworld. I wanted it to look as if you were meeting her for the first time and so had to take a shot of her so she looked intimidating.
I will be doing a picture like this for the rest of the war band members as well.
Hope you like it.
Some more pics of the Master.
Now all I need to do is psych myself up to paint him.
Started the painting with the good Dr here. Setting the tone for the rest of the group. Blood splatters galore!!
Part of my Inquisitors war band.
Here’s my 3D printed daemon host Tisiphone all painted and ready to terrorize. The detail the print achieved was really nice and she painted well and in one sitting.
I have another project on the go that uses 3D printing, sculpting and good old hacking up of bits, which I will post up soon.
Let me know what you think 🙂
“It’s time to wake up my fleshy friend, that’s it, open those lovely useful eyes. Now, how many arms am I holding up?……….. Hehehehehehe!! Just a little joke to lighten the mood. So lets begin shall we, which part should I take first?”
Anatomica Praebitores, The Flesh Wraiths of Terra, The Skin Takers and many other names persides are without a doubt one of the most feared organisations to infest the deep dark areas of Terra.
They strike at the unwary pilgryme with needles and poisoned blade so that they may take them back to their surgical lairs, where the poor unfortunates are disected and amputated so there parts can be sold to whoever can pay the price. Not only do they offer this service but they also harvest and graft new parts and organs to themselves, resulting in truely horrific forms that pleases them greatly. The higher ranking Praebitorem are true monsters of the underworld that rule the shadows.
Monsters they may be, but the Anatomica Preabitores delight in knowledge and are all to eager to pass it on the the apprentices they take on, or in some cases even make, and it’s this attitude to learning that binds them. Each member of the group has a part to play and gets everything they need to succed in it. Flesh is buisness as they say and on Terra there is no shortage of that.
I really enjoyed creating these models and even as I write this they are being painted. The Master Praebitorem is one of my favorite characters to date and I plan to expand the group by adding a cart of bodies being pulled by a servitor and a lumbering abomination loading it up.
More pics to follow soon.
