When we started Iron Sleet in the beginning of the year, we set out to create a special space for celebrating this fine hobby, to collaborate, showcase, inspire, challenge and enjoy. We were hoping that in combining our old blogs, the Spiky Rat Pack and Legion of Plastic we could become something much more than the sum of their parts.
Three and a half months into it, we are already beyond a 100 000 views, but much more importantly almost a thousand comments to the work presented! The invitational has been an amazing project and more than doubled the daily traffic and discussion and we’ve seen incredible work from at least six different countries.
Today we have a very special and fitting way to finish. A Retinue of work from John Blanche, inspired by the invitational and finished as a surprise to us.
Thank you to everyone for their stellar work and all the comments and discussions this has generated!
Kari, Mikko and Migs,
Legionne of resin – the unknown warrior ripped from the battlefields of the thirty first millennium
Bi a wounded daemon of chaos whoes essence resides in the chapel column and animated soldiers corpse – with the remnants of the survivors of that conflict and thrust ten thousand years into the future where the daemon searches its former corporal existence bi following conflict across numerous systems – Ordo malleus charged Hilgardius the pious to shadow the daemon pillar in an attempt to harness the immense powers held within – she alone had the attuned psychic strength to control the entity – there’s more to come for this group but I really must do some drawing …….
Ripped thru warp space this chapel worshiping warrior of the 31st millennium became bound with a defeated chaos entity whoes live force resides in this column – the unknown soldier is ripped apart but still lives hanging from this column which warp jumps in inexplicable ways – inquisitor agent Hilgardius is charged with studying this enigma – her psychic powers enable her and her henchman to travel thru warp space if reciting the correct rituals and armed with appropriate wards and power sigils ……
Gotta also plucked from three millennia ago – sworn guard to gui …. Berserker battle ogryn …
Sergeant at arms to Hilgardius, refugee from three millennia ago but unaware of his history and origins – bound to the unknown warrior …..
