SENT][NELS

The Lady Elect and her Sentinels are the wardens of the entrance ways to The Chapel. The Sentinels themselves occupy many of the main and well used entrances and are large imposing machines worthy of the Machine God. Each has it’s own character with some being taciturn while others are brash and some are even morbid. These traits are caused by the long exposure to the entrances for The Chapels fickle ways are at their strongest in these places.

The Lady Elect, Mistress of the Sentinels, High Warden of The Chapel, is a giant of a woman. Augmented to intimidate she stands taller, it is said, than a Space marine reaching half the height of the Sentinels that serve her.

It has been a while since I delved into The Chapel and I’ve really missed it, but, as you are all too aware, life gets a hold of you and drags you kicking and screaming back to reality.

So as you’ve just read, this is the start of The Chapels entrance ways and the groups of augmented guards and quirky monster machines you can find in them. This is a good chance to get all Mechanicum so lets see what robotic horrors you can come up with as Sentinels vary in not only character but looks to. Mine are two brothers, and I’ll be posting the fluff on them in good time, they where inspired by Neil of Opus Maius, who has stopped his blog ( sad day when he did that ) but who you can find on Instagram now under the same name ( a happy day when he did that ) If you read this Neil keep the inspiration coming!

As always the work for this project has been outstanding and the support you guys have shown makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Keep up the good work.

  1. Welcome back mate, and superb work here! So cool 🙂

    1. Cheers Alex. Got to do more!!

  2. Welcome back my friend. Fantastic. So drab and cool.

    1. Thanks mate. I’m going to paint them so they blend in with the Entrance board.

  3. PS love opus maius

  4. Awesome and unsettling, as absolutely befits the Chapel! Also exciting to see the continued world-building as you continue to introduce more elements of the setting. Welcome back and well done!

    1. Thanks Temple! I can’t wait to show you the board I’ve been working on.

  5. Excellent sentinels, there’s something slightly unsettling about the combination of the gun turrets and the calm, gentle faces. Any chance of a ‘rear view’ – I’m imaging all kinds of hidden mechanicum gubbins there?

    1. Thanks Wudu. Yes I’ll get a rear view shot up soon.

  6. I really like these – there is something very unsettling about them which reminds me of the work of Guillermo del Toro’s visual work on Pan’s Labyrinth or Hellboy.

    1. Thanks my heretical friend. His work is awesome, he has a good eye for details and I like how he uses old school techniques.

  7. […] round things off here’s a few images of the Sentinel model ( See here for more info ) that’ll be available as soon as the shop goes […]
