So it’s been a while. Way too long really but that’s the vacuum of Instagram for you. I’ve been posting on there for a while and while it’s good and quick it’s eye candy and lacks a certain depth. So I’m aiming to give my blog more love that it deserves and will start with my Slaanesh project.
The first installment has to be my Daemon Engine for the group. It’s a colossal monster of metal tentacles and writhing, tortured flesh and like aspects of the rest of this project I’ve used kitbashing, sculpting and 3D printing to create it. I documented it step by step as well so you can see the process of creating it and to date I think it’s my most complex undertaking.
So sit back and enjoy and I’ll be back again very soon 🙂
And finally all painted up using mainly contrast and washes.
The call of Chaos has been ringing in my ears and I’ve succumbed to its seducing tones. The call of Slaanesh as caused me to drop all other projects and focus only on she who thirsts and being the self-centred, over controlling and extremely jealous type bitch bastard it is I obeyed. My soul has been covered in silk and poked with pins and my mind has had thoughts of the truly deranged and disturbing things. One such vision is this chap. I’ve yet to give him a name so any suggestions would be great, serious or otherwise……….. go on poke some fun at him, you know you want to! He actually likes being poked as he’s your typical sadistic, masochistic, possessed, psychopath marine!
I have to say the he was a joy to kit bash and sculpt and to date I think he’s one of my better painted miniatures. I really loved blending the fleshy pink skin tones with the washed out purples of his armour. The aim was to make the armour appear to be changing into flesh as the Daemon inside him takes more control of the Marine he used to be.
So what will his purpose be? Well he’s the beginnings of a new war band, which will be part of a new campaign I am in the middle of writing. I shall reveal more in the next coming months but lets just say that it will be better than the Chapel!
Anyhoo I hope you like and are also positively repulsed by what you see. Keep on hobbying hobby nuts!

Shunned by Slaanesh and left to wither, Megaera is but a bitter, evil shell of a Daemonette she once was. Mutated and twisted, Slaanesh loves to torment her and so she is always accompanied by a troup of daemonettes as a reminder to her of all she was and all she has lost.
Taunting her they tease and dance around her, enraging her until the exquisit torment becomes too much and she explodes into a blood thirsty frenzy. Laughing, her daemon tormenters are only to happy to join in with the blood shed.
So I’ve finished painting my Daemonettes with 3D printed bodies and I modeled and painted Megaera quickly today. The model you see below is just a concept and I shall be making another one of her soon.
I like the idea of a tormented daemon that is mocked and shunned. Forced to endure for the pleasure of Slaanesh, she can’t help but take pleasure in his desire to punish her and goad her into frenzied acts of violence.
Today I took the plunge and joined The Ammo Bunker under the username of Ordo. It’s been something I’ve been meaning to do for ages and I’ve heard such good things about it and that the projects that go on are truely inspirational. I intend to post some of my projects but would like to have this blog as the main outlet as I think you can spread yourself too thin with social media so I’ll be sticking to my three of choice, WordPress, Instagram and Ammo Bunker.
Talking of social media, I’ve just started the Black Earth Instagram under blackearthbitz. I shall be posting more pics of whats on the horizon for that venture today, so head over and follow if you want to see.
So paint brushes! These beauties arrived this morning.
Heard they were good. Has anyone used them? I’m going to have to make a special character to christen them with I think 🙂
And it wouldn’t be a proper post without a pic of some models. So here’s todays work.
Yesterday I posted a pic of a model I’d created and then 3D printed. The idea was to create new bodies to be used as Daemonettes as the GW ones are a little static in my opinion with the claws and the heads being the really useful bits.
So below you will see the finished assembled model ready for primer and a group shot of her and her buddies
I hope you like them.
