From Jeff Vader of the brilliant Convertorum, comes today’s entry. At the same time a classic, old school even, yet very novel. And even a bonus 4th model.
Enjoy and happy Saturday!
Originally I had planned to do a trio of xenos for the invitational. I thought it would be fun inventing some new alien races that still felt part of the grimdark 40k universe. I also wanted to include a model based on the impressive – and at the time spanking new – skaven stormfiends.
It didn’t work out… The stormfiend looked too dark eldar-y, I couldn’t even come up with a good idea for the second xenos and the best model, the Hunter, broke while I was working on it. I gave up and felt I was out of the race.
But, then She Who Thirts intervened.
I had previously made a model for a competition on the ammubunker. A vile slaaneshii witch called the Diva. She needed some friends…
The focus shifted from xenos to Slaanesh and everything started falling in place. The huling stormfiend worked great as a slaaneshii brute and I had a half finished truescale chaos marine in mu bits box.
The release of the new harlequins added a solitaire to the mix as the perfect archenemy.
40 mm base: The Master
A particulary devious and scientifically minded Emperors Children renegade with a special interest in eldar soul technology. This former pupil if the notorius Fabius Bile has crossed paths with Inquisitor Carax on numerous occasions.
60mm base: The Gimp
This hulking brute is completely devoted to the Master. Rumoured to have been created by a dark fusion of haemonculii and daemonengine technology.
30mm base: The Nemesis
This eternally vigilant solitaire has hunted down The Great Enemy’s minions for over a thousand years. Now he has set his sights on the Master.
