Here's a lot of pieces. Look at them all, isn't there a lot? I wonder what I'm going to do with them all... Part of my custodes commission includes a contemptor dreadnought, which I like to think I'll be magnetizing.
Here's the three arms, or at least where I was up to last. The two gun arms are going to have two ends each; The first will have a melta and a flamer, and the second will have an assault cannon and a heavy bolter.
I'm assuming a contemptor dread in 40K is allowed the same loadout as a vanilla one?
Taking cues from Fortitudo, I decided to give the contemptor a cherubic visage on its front. I don't know what stopped me from going out and buying a doll straight away... I spoke to my mum, and she was willing to part with one of hers, for a price.
Anyway, if you wanted to know what Kelly looked like without a face, there we are. Shotgun collar victim.
This sort of thing. Pipes and some fancy greenstuff work that I can'tthinkofrightnowbecauseI'mtootired (inhales deeply) should tie it together nicely.
Right, so here's where I'm up to with the contemptor. Thoughts so far? Obviously, there's a LOT of work to be done, but it's just a matter of getting there.
More skaven. Actually, these chaps are all primed now.
Another commission piece I'm chipping away at is a Tzeentch IK, and it's proving a very interesting piece to be sure. I need to be careful not to go overboard or, as usual, I'll never finish it!
I'm particularly enjoying this one, as I can do pretty much ANYTHING, so long as it doesn't look really stupid. Also spamming a new sort of ribbing I just got good at.
A gaunt summoner will be driving. I'm wondering what else to cram into the interior...
Slow progress on the anti-
Ah yes, here's a buy I'm proud of. All three at once, VERY happy with them, 'specially as I don't own most of the WDs they feature. I'm aware the apocrypha series were received poorly for that reason, they were all just copy/paste WD articles, but I personally am fine with it. I need to give these books a decent review later.
...Hey, I saw the hourglass and panicked, okay?
RIGHT! Now for the long-winded ramble!
Here's a teaser for something big looming on the horizon. Not physically, like any large vehicle or walker I may or may not have alluded to on G+, *cough* but a generally big story with even bigger potential I'm adding to here and there. One day it might see the light of day, I don't know.
Last post was about a fictional game I invented for the story, a series called Astronomica. I've been mulling over the idea for a while, and I'd really like to see it expanded on in some way. It's basically Warhammer 40,000 if portrayed by Fromsoftware, not a crossover, though it borrows certain elements-- that of Astartes being undead in reality etc. The overbearing style will be a step away from Blanchitsu; a drier, blacker, more burned feel I reckon. Not trying to be the next Blanchitsu-killer, of course!
The concept of Astronomica, as I like to envision it in the future, is a general collection of lore-building and all-round fun times with fellow Dark Souls/Warhammer enthusiasts sharing an interest. Together, I'd like for us to build a world around this concept, throw together some nice models and maybe even base a few skirmish games around it. I'm currently putting together some stuff for you to read and maybe find inspiration, as well as a model or two (or a whole squad), but yeah! Suddenly cutting my ramble short there as I'm WAY too tired to carry on!
I so awfully want this to become a thing, I know we can have a lot of fun with it! I'll put up a post later detailing what I hope to achieve with the whole concept of Astronomica, and I'm going to have to spread the word around somehow.
And that's that, I think! A whole random lot of stuff and the desperate ramble of some poor soul. Next post I won't be so tired, I can promise you that.
Oh yeah, in other news, I've begun work on a graphic novel! Long process, come back in four years if you want to ask me how I'm doing ;)
Bye bye for now.
