Good evening Dakka, as one would assume, getting back to work tends to impair painting productivity. Well, update time nonetheless.

So I finished painting the two AOS guys mentioned before. First, Morgenstern Kharg for the Silent Reap warband.



The Morgensterns of the Silent Reap are holy warriors of Khorne, living embodiments of the cold mechanic murdering fury of their warband. To rise to the status of Morgenstern, followers of the Reap travel to an isolated temple on their homeworld : The Arena of the BloodSmiths. If admitted, the candidates will be improved through battle, faith and science, or be killed in the process. The trials start with an 8 hour battle in a fighting pit, facing ever resurrecting demons that inhabit the arena or other candidates. During these battles, any drop of blood spilled flows through the arena's metal floor and fuels the BloodSmiths' forges where the Morgenstern armors are produced. After fighting for eight hours, the surviving candidates are taken to the armory, where their hosts will heal their wounds by directly nailing the armor pieces they forged during battle in their flesh. The candidates then retreat to the Thermae, a bathouse filled in the blood of fallen candidates of the past, to pray Khorne and gain strength for the incoming battles. The cycle is then repeated until the BloodSmiths are satisfied with their work, or the death of the subject. Needless to say the intellect of the candidates is completely destroyed in the process, but the technological enhancement implanted in the process usually stops them from becoming uncontrollable.

Built a larger backpack, to fit the body of that bloke, and to include most of the mechadendrite flamer.

Then is Lord Varacht, from the Sacrifice to Sin.

Lord Varacht was part of an Emperor's Children's attack force that landed on the well of soul disunion in an attempt to exterminate the Tzeentch half of the Sacrifice to Sin. Although major damage was done during the raid, the invaders were eventually pushed back into space by the demonic lords of the schizophrenic world, leaving many warriors without reinforcement or extraction plan. After spending centuries in the wastes, it is said the Varacht entered a sacrificial pit of his own will in order to travel to the center of the world and destroy its demonic heart. That madness did not succeed but probably saved him from alienation as he was eventually reborn as a member of the warband he once planned to exterminate.


And now for some WIP, if Sigmar was probably pissed by lord Varacht, he might try to have my soul for that one. A possessed four armed demonic angel for the sacrifice to sin.


Thanks for watching, as always, input and opinions are appreciated.

That Morgenstern of the Silent Reap looks wicked! Great conversion and paintjob, as always

Lord Varacht looks pretty cool as well, I like the daemonic face on appearing on his shield

Keep up the good work!

Thanks fellas. Yeah that is a head from maxminis, they are slightly bigger than space marines heads, so they work nicely with the bigger AOS dudes. Also, Yay Gasmasks !

Hell yeah, got a small supply drop in the mail today.


If I am not mistaken, these are the original Bloodletter miniatures, and it is funny to see that for their fourth version, GW actually went back to this classical Belzebuth bestial look.
I remember when I saw these guys in an old white dwarf (#10x), so these dudes are from the end of the eighties and still look decent in my opinion. I have been lurking ebay since then to find me some at a decent price. There were 5 at the time, so I still need to find the remaining two.

For now I just moved them away from their square bases, and found some poses that did not cause them to put their hands or sword in the ground, but I did not settle yes on a color scheme. Maybe I will paint each one of them differently, an albino, a classic bloody red and a dark red... I'll lurk the gallery to decide I guess, but your suggestions are always appreciated !

Yep, these are the original bloodletters. You can see how GW eventually reverted back to this design somewhat with the new models. Good stuff! WOOOOOO!

Another WIP update, this time regarding the Sacrifice to Sin dreadnought.

First I made him a gun, it still needs more wiring.


Work got done on the "chapels" too, the guitar one got some amp heads with greenstuff buttons to tune them to 11.



Also workds on the dancer one, with a mutating wall (Yeah, seen enough H to know where this is going)

The paper part on top will be drenched in PVA to be made into drapings.

The roof can still be removed, in order to paint properly later...


Assembled shot :


This is the 6 string bass the guitar player will use.


And finally, a four eyed terminator I just started for the Asylum Knights

Hell yeah, hopefully that will refrain me from trying to build his daddy in the living room. The missus would not like that.

Not a P&M update for this post, but had a bit of infographic fun. I sometimes refer to an entity or character that has not yet been modeled in my fluff. In order to keep track, here are organizational charts of the Vivisector Cult and the Silent Reap.

Classical layered hierarchy for the Reap :


Whereas the Vivisectors are made of independent entities, lightly supervised by the Oligarchs.

Ahahaha maybe, although the opposite is more likely, with new blocks being added to the graphs more quickly than I am able to produce miniatures.
Main reason for these was to take note of the entities that I introduce in the fluff (i.e. the Bloodsmiths or the Repurposer) and stay coherent.

Also, The powers of ruin surely appreciate unreadable graphs don't they ^^ ?

Graph for the Graph God ! And Blood for the Blood god, I finished the bloodletters.



The Swords of Nothingness are five ancient bloodletters regularly solicited by the Silent Reap to fight at their side, or in one of the many arenas built on the reap's homeworld.


Khiist, He that lurks in the shadow and screams at the fallen


Khoven, he that leaps from below and grins at your wounds


Khantiq, he that stabs the weak and drinks the soul

Now I need to find the two last models...

You could always go with the ones that came before the hooved ones. The muscly, smaller ones. I think there's quite a few of them.

Indeed, they are pretty nice too, closer to a classical devil look than a beast. But, my OCD won't let me give up on the missing ones, they'll turn up eventually.

Well that is precisely the problem with looking for old models, you end up overpaying for oop models you stumble into. More stuff in the mail I am afraid.

Actually, on the topic of classic models, you could try to recreate them with conversions and scratchbuilding. That's something that I've been thinking about starting a thread on, and I think it'd be cool if a bunch of people did it.

Hmmmm cool idea, kind of a recipe thread for old models rebuilds. Are you thinking exacts replicas based on pictures or, an updated take on old school sculpts ?
What immediately comes to mind would be Krautscientist's brilliant Doomwall which is an homage to old school termies, of Skumle Rafte's Cypher

This project might be even more needed if that 'Ditching Slaanesh' rumors comes true...

How about an example eh?
Spoiler:

This is one model I would definitely remake:


To do so, I would attach a specific plaguebearer head:


To a flagellant body:


With a Plaguebearer arm:


And convert up the right arm with the axe. Greenstuff a belly, fix up the robes, ta da!

In the meantime, WIP update time, chapels for the the Sacrifice to sin dread are nearing completion, first the guitar player one :



And the dancer's one, still an open surface on the back, need to figure out what to paint/write there...



I also did some progress on the new Asylum Knight.


And on a completely unrelated note, I hijacked my workplace's 3D Printer ^^ !

Yup, an Ultimaker, the lower half should be printing right now... Then they will go in an acetone bath in order to smooth the layer lines (Scary I know).
That was a test run though, and even if I am very happy with the look of the Destroyer, It does not have a high enough resolution to print more detailed models. Maybe if I decide to go for a big guy such as a Demon Prince it could print the main shape of the body, that I would then sculpt on...

Yup, I discussed it further this afternoon, depending on the type of plastic used it is not always a bath, but might just consist in leaving the plastic on top of the Acetone, and let the vapors do the deed.

Well, update time, I just finished Harut, the Blind angel of the Sacrifice to Sin.


The homeworld of the sacrifice to sin is a tribute to their religion's schizophrenic allegiance to both Tzeentch and Slaanesh. At this place in the eye of terror, both deities clash on all levels of the warp. The echo of their battle often brings warriors and armies to take part for one side, the other, or none of them. Such was the case of the army led by the one who was to become Harut. His original name, and legion of allegiance have been forgotten, all that is remembered is that his assault was so fierce that the whole defense force was wiped out, and that he held the world until the return of the cult. At the top of the battle the invading general was wounded by a meltagun shot to the chest, piercing his body and spraying melted metal on his face, blinding him. Even so, he kept fighting for a while and made his opponents retreat, leaving him for the planet to claim. Millenia later, many pretend that this warrior returned in the form of Harut, a blind angel indiscriminately executing mortals with his meltagun.





Thanks for wathching, let me know what you think.
