Thanks Cam.

So I finally finished the Daemonhost last night... Here he is in all his imprisoned glory (except for the base) and in the last pic, accompanied by a servitor to keep the sarcophagus safe and mobile, plus my Ordo Hereticus inquisitor and priest.

I've got to admit, I'm pretty pleased with this one. Any C&C are still most welcome though.

You should be pleased with that daemon host, great vision in planning it, and great mini that you made.

So I did manage to finish my true scale Grey Knight for the March Painting challenge before I disappear off on holiday at stupid-o-clock tomorrow morning - though I'm not quite satisfied with the details yet so might revisit him. The pic shows him next to my Ordo Hereticus inquisitor for scale.

Also been building more Necromunda terrain - a base and chem factory for my Escher gang (which I'm calling Stimm City), and some very early attempts at zone mortalis wall sections.

As always, c&c much appreciated. I'm signing off for 2 weeks while I visit the in-laws in Canada, no hobbying will be done but I might well drop by the forums and catch up properly with other people's threads!

Hello Dakka-ites!
Back from holiday, though hobby time & equipment is a bit limited till next week. I've been kitbashing though, and started off this tech-priest of the Magos Oceania (check out the Mare Solum group on FB for more background/fluff relating to this build - https://www.facebook.com/groups/481877232185342/ ).
As always, c&c very welcome indeed. This is a very early stage WIP though

Couple more WIP shots of the nautical Magos below... H/T to Nikki and Richard on the Mare Solum page for the background fluff:

"The Magos Oceania are a smaller sect of the Magos Biologis, specialising in the study and cataloguing of marine lifeforms on all planets. They have a large presence on Mare Solum due to its wide array of aquatic fauna and flora. They utilise bionics and technology that is waterproofed and highly corrosion resistant. Teams of Magi often submerge for days and sometimes weeks at a time for research fieldwork using locally made servitors based on aquatic wildlife to assist their studies. Often they graft vat grown appendages to their bodies to make themselves more suited for under water travel and survival."

Looking really cool. What gave you the idea for those skeletal dragon like heads coming out of him? Also where do those bits come from. I like the air tanks on his back, as nice touch to tie in with the fluff

Oh man that's cool really must have a go at some of the Mare Solum stuff. Is it primarily a facebook thing or are there other areas with a decent amount of content for it?

Cheers Syro. The dragon heads started life as a sea monster piece from Dreadfleet which I chopped up. Spotted it in an eBay bitz store which gave me the idea.

@Ynnead I'm only aware of Mare Solum on Facebook. Its a really nice little community, lots of Inq28 people involved but a really broad range. Its intended as a community-developed setting in the 40K universe so not tied to any particular rule set.

Thanks also for the kind words @youwashock.

Been a bit of a slow couple of weeks but hoping for more hobby time and updates in the near future. Thanks to those of you who've stopped in here, all the best.

A bit more progress on my Magos Oceanum... Still lots to do but I'm pretty happy with him so far. I've been building some associates for him as well, pics to follow when I've made a bit more progress on them!

Hello friends and fellow Dakka-ites!

It's been a while... RL has been crazy to say the least... But here are a few pics of what I've been building in my spare half hours.

C&C very much appreciated, thanks for looking in.

Thanks @monkeytroll.

I think I've made enough progress with my Magos Oceanum to post a quick update.
The Magos is just about done along with his Praetorian Servitor bodyguard and his flying abomination (still working out what to call this one...).
Final pic is a couple of WIP Skitarii who will serve as the Magos' meatshields, ahem, I mean loyal servants of the Omnissiah.
C&C very welcome! Also name suggestions for the flying/hovering thing would be appreciated.

Puts me in mind of a jellyfish or a ray of some kind, which is fitting I suppose, but doesn't immediately help with a name...

I'm digging the color scheme on the magos oceanum. I agree with monkeytroll about the one being reminiscent of a jelly fish. Maybe try out some of the scientific names for jellyfish with slight changes? Jelly fish are part of phylum Cnidaria (the c is silent so pronounced ni-dare-ee-ah) if that helps.

Ooh, thanks for that guys. It could be a Cnidaritor. Or a Cnidarian Dragoon!

OK, thanks to suggestions both here and on the Mare Solum FB page, the flying fish-abomination has a name...

Everything you're doing here is so grim and gritty, really captures what I see in the Underhive when my mind wanders. The picture of the gang together nails it.

Proof of life...

It's been a tough few weeks IRL especially with a big house move going on, but I'm still managing a little hobby time.

I've just about finished up three Armsmen for my Inq28 Rogue Trader's crew. Bit of finishing up to do, especially on the power maul. Second pic is the whole crew so far, Rogue Trader Calissa Peronnix , her two daughters and her surviving crew. In the current narrative campaign we're running, these guys are trapped on the Hiveworld of Piety after their ship was infested by daemons on exiting the warp.

Hello friends!
It's been a while... To say the least! Crazy time with a complex house move and limited hobbying time/space.
But... I've finished my N17 Chaos Cult gang for the campaign we're running in Huddersfield, (photos to follow when I find where I packed my camera!) and here are a few WIPs I've been fiddling around with in the meantime.
As always, C&C very welcome indeed.
