A few teaser images of The Chapel

Hi all,

So it’s been a while since I last posted anything and The Chapel game has been and gone. It was an excellent weekend and since then I’ve been busy with life, work, sick children etc and getting the images for the reports done, and also a few projects that aren’t Chapel related. It’s all been slow going but today I thought I’d share a glimpse at what’s been going on concerning The Chapel project.

The images below are from The Albino Woods part of the game.

The Entrance w.i.p

Hello all! So as you’ve probably read the awesome dude behind Leadballoony Alex came over last weekend to delve into the realms of the Albino Woods and begin the creation of the ground where many shall meet there doom. Head over to his blog to see the pics of the great “we’re allowed to do our hobby all day” day. Thanks girls! It’s not often I get the chance to indulge in a hobby day like that and to put a face to the blog and meet Alex was a pure pleasure. You’re a top bloke mate!

As Alex mentioned I showed him the progress I’m making on the Entrance board and as he posted pics of the Albino Woods I’d thought I’d share a few snaps of The Entrance.

Enjoy 🙂

Presenting….

Hello ladies and gentlemen.

Today I’d like to present to you a fellow contributer to The Chapel project. Ahmad Alibrahing or as some of you may know him as Stygian Thorne. If you have an Instagram account then get following him as his art is wonderful and very Blanchian.

He has been so kind as to do a few pieces for The Chapel and he says there is more to come so watch this space and get inspired. Here’s what he’s done so far.

This is going to be a Mural in the entrance board. It was inspired by my lady Inquisitor.

A few sketched ideas and a teaser of things to come.

 

Pretty cool huh?

With his contributions The Chapel comes full circle. Idea, stories, miniatures, scenery and art.

 

 

Things are coming

Hello all!

I’ve been busy! Not that that will change anytime soon but I feel the need for some much-needed blog catching up.

So The Chapel project is still simmering nicely and I’ve been working hard on the Entrance board with all the parts printed and cast and now being assembled. I’ve made it as a kit you see, a task that’s been a test of my skills and I have to say as the prototype goes it’s all coming together rather nicely. Work is also going to commence on the Albino Woods board. This piece is going to be big! Most of the scenery is made thanks to the talented IRO ( Imperial Rebel Ork ) and Alex of Leadballoony with a few bits made by yours truly, all that needs to happen now is to plan the layout and get it made…….Excited!

The Chapel project has been all-consuming for me and it’s been a joy to have such talented people along for the ride, your input has been amazing. On the subject of amazing, I will have an announcement to make to soon, one that will add a whole new dimension to The Chapel project. So get ready to be inspired 🙂

Next we have models. Lovely chunks of grey we all go made for and can’t get enough of. As some of you know I’ve been working on a selection of bits and models to sell and I have come up with an idea, an idea that was sparked by a conversation with Alex               ( Leadballoony) and it is this. I would like you to think of an original bit you would like and submit it me here. I will then do my best to make that bit to sell in my shop and if yours gets made you will get it for free as a thank you. So think of an item you’ve always wanted to add to a model but couldn’t find the right part and I’ll make it for you. Sound good?

This is the part that I’m making for Alex. Can you tell what the inspiration for it was? Think old skool.

 

To 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 live.

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.

 

+++ ][ +++ ][ +++ The Chapel has called + ][ ++ 1 ++++ ][ +++++ ][ ++++ ][ +++

” My name is Lucia, that is all you need to know right now.”

Lucia reaches into a pocket and produces a small black box. The man sitting across from her raises an eyebrow.

” You are here because I’d like to hire you as your talents would be of great use to me in the coming months, if not years.”

She slides the small black box across the table. The man looks at it for a minute and then takes it.

” I’m sure you have seen one of those before?”

The man smiles, it is not a warm smile, and says.

” Yes Inquisitor Lucia. Or should I call you The Death Widow.”

A smile spreads across Lucia’s face. A smile he cannot see.

” So you have heard of me then?”

The man puts the box in his inside pocket.

” Oh I’ve heard of you and I’ve heard of your ways.”

The hidden smile spreads further across her face.

” Well then it should come as no surprise as to why I am asking for your services. So can I count on you being you?”

The man chuckles and says.

” Oh yes Inquisitor you can count on that.”

” Excellent. We shall leave once we have confirmation from the others.”

” Others?”

” Yes my murderous friend, others, and if you think I’m bad then just wait till you meet them.”

So welcome to the first post of my ][nquisitor war band for The Chapel project. I thought it would be wise to start from the top so may I present ][nquisitor Lucia, The Death Widow.
