I've started a new terrain project, taking this as a starting point...

... with the intent of daemonically possessing it.

In a big bad way. I want to corrupt, desecrate, and thoroughly defile this thing, transforming it into a vast, grotesque, unholy altar. A monument to malice. Gapingly un-Gellared. An open Warp-pit seething with c'thullian menace. A Fortress of Irredemption.

I've done some terrain along these lines before...



The Fortress will get more of the same. More greenstuff. Spikes. Tentacles. Yet more greenstuff. Crucified marines. Greenstuff. Gaping maws. Maybe a bit more greenstuff? That sort of thing.

After some hesitation (this thing is so big it's hard to decide where to start!) I went to work on one of the missile silos, with the idea of making it into a sacrificial pit/summoning portal. Had a false start, put in some greenstuff, didn't like it, ripped it out again (no pics of that) ...

...then took some bitz from the WHFB Corpse Cart kit...


... and went back in with the greenstuff...


... and kept greenstuffing until things got out of control. Went a little further. And ended up with this:


Here's a closer look:


Say hi, boiling-in-raw-Warpstuff guy!


And now I'm off and running. This was a good place to start, I think. Helps focus the project. Gives away a bit of the ending (hint: not a happy one!), but points the way forward.

Thanks for looking. This project will take awhile -- probably several months. But I'm doing it for a friend, so I'm motivated to see it through to completion!

Thanks for the encouragement, folks. Sorry I haven't been responding more regularly.

I've been picking away at this project over the past few weeks.

First, on the Hot Tub of Harrowing, I tried creating a spillover effect...


...to generate a familiar image:


I'm liking the look, though I'm not done yet with that section. Needs yet more tendrilling greenstuff....

Meanwhile I turned to the other wing of the Fortress. Waiting for some inspiration to hit, I noodled in a few daemonic fibers...


Then went to work on the artillery turret. First I carved out some openings on either side:


Then added a few details:


and on the other side:


Then worked in some... (wait for it) ... Greenstuff!


and:


I picture those poor souls still "alive" in some sense, still sentient, moaning hoarse imprecations to the ruinous powers.

Thanks as always for looking. I'm happy to hear ideas for this project.

Great to see more of your stuff. Really like the idea of the tentacle star.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass.

Thanks very much for the kind words, folks!

After a hiatus, I've gone back to work on this project.

Now I've turned to the tower of the thing, and set in on the statuary. Which (you'll be amazed and excited to hear) is being possessed by creepy crawling greenstuff! (Didn't see that coming, didja? :twisted: )



I figure, if the tower''s statues represent heroes of the Imperium girdling the fortress with the armor and iconography of faith, well, any daemonic power worth its weight in Warp is going to start by gnawing and worming its way in...


and laying claim to the stone itself, either by tooth:


or by tentacle:


... to demonstrate to the doomed worshipers of the Corpse God how hollow their "gods" and heroes are, how hopeless they are.

You will notice, by the way, that I've (literally) twisted and warped the tower walls. I have plans for up top.
.
Lots more to do on this. Next I'll probably work on the stone scroll work wrapping around the statues' swords.

Thanks for looking.
