Remus Ventanus, Hero of Calth. Commission.

“We march for the 500 Worlds! We march for the Primarch! Unattributed. This piece was a conversion by the Fenrypian Forge for the client who wished me to paint it. It is an incredibly precise detailed conversion that was a joy to paint. I used my preferred Ultramarine recipe to build the armour plate and…

Space Wolf Army Commission.

“Street by street and block by block we’ll sweep them out. There are snipers on the rooftops and the underpass is heavily mined. It’s going to be dangerous, it’s going to be fun.” Lord Varrn, Wolf Lord. Before each commission we have a conversation with the client and work up a design brief. We thought…

#returntoisstvan – Visual Library of Choral City, The Precentors Palace & Siren Hold.

Istvaan III had two primary battlefronts: The Precentor’s Palace and The Siren Hold within Choral City. The images have been gathered from the Forge World’s Betrayal and the Horus Heresy Trading Card game. Unfortunately, most images do not have a description of where they are set. I’ve used my best judgement based on the descriptions…

#Returntoisstvan – Isstvan III project log 1. Blame it on Saul.

April 2020. The height of quarantine boredom. Saul Tarvitz is released and a member of our gaming group mentions something about always wanting to do an Emperors Children army. How great were the older black books? Always wanted to play through the scenarios. We should do it. We should totally open a bar!… ahem I…

Necromunda Dramatis Persona: Apoco-Fist! Pit Slave Gladiator.

Life is tough Down-Hive. Taff-Sump eats the innocent and spits out abominations. Sometimes the only way to survive is to sacrifice your humanity. Taken as an adolescent into the flesh syncs of Splott, the creature that would become Apoco-Fist took to the synthesized protein gruel and muscle grafts like a Sump-Kroc to water. Bought by…

Principia Belicosa, World Eaters. Sample Army Lists.

Sample Army Lists Mid Heresy: Armoured Berserkers (3000 points Frontline mode) This is a variant of a list I usually run in 3k games in my local club where it has done pretty well. I have given up Surlak and Inductii in favour of transports and mobility, but you could swap out the assault marines…

Ultramarine Signifier, Legion Herald. Commission.

We have been wounded sorely. Yet still we stand, with fire in our eyes and valour in our hearts. Let them think us beaten. We shall teach them otherwise. Unattibuted. One of the lesser-used consul choices, the Legion Herald offers some wonderful buffs for an army. Although you cannot buy a jet pack for the…

Stolos Amyntas Tetrarch of Ultramar. Commission

One of the Tetrachs of Ultramar, Stolos Amyntas was charged with Iax during the Horus Heresy. Calth was a war of betrayal, subterfuge and brutality. This piece was created with a very singular purpose in mind: TO STAB A WORD BEARER IN THE FACE.

Principia Belicosa, World Eaters: Allies & Tactics.

“You served well, Gharte.” Khârn disengaged the seals at the warrior’s throat, lifting the helm clear. There wasn’t much left of the sergeant’s face. Something must have reflected in Khârn’s expression, for Gharte made his devastated face into something like a grin. “That bad, eh?” he asked. His gurgling laughter became another cough. Khârn’s reply…

Ultramarine Locutarus Assault Squad. Commission.

Locutarus assault squads were specialist hand to hand cadres, exemplifying the arts of sword and pistol play. During pitched battles, they were often held in reserve to bolster a failing line or press breakthroughs. Unlike other legions, the Locutarus are not chosen for their savagery, but instead for their courage in the face of impossible…
