  1. Hello everyone, I'm sure we all have a favorites folder full of inspiration for dark fantasy miniatures, I know I've been scouring the internet for dark art and hobbyist blogs, and I thought it would be cool to share and discuss Porst anything that inspires you, whether it's a short story, a kitbashing blog, a bosch painting or some vacation pictures! As long as you feel it adds to the myriad of dark recesses one could find in the vast universe of Age of Sigmar... I'll start off with my latest find, although a lot of you probably already know it : Gardens of Hecate is a croatian hobbyist's blog, tremendously inspiring, wonderfully dark stuff with strong influences from John Blanche and Ian Miller, eastern folk tales, oldhammer and others. Every post is awesome and full of creativity, makes you think "why didn't I think of that?" So now... Show me what you got!

    Mojgorox The Beastlord

    Very nice! I've read your fluff and I love the idea for this guy- feels very unique and like something out of realms of chaos, characterful and with that nice bit of randomness. based on the illustration you posted that you said inspired you, I wonder if it might look cool to have a white eye shining in that empty socket - might give that crazed vibe... just my 2 cents other than that this is a seriously cool model with a great paintjob, well done.
  3. Very interesting, I love seeing wip shots of projects like this, especially the terrain
  4. This looks really cool! I hope you're still making it The modular warmachine terrain you linked too is also really awesome, too bad it stopped being updated...
  5. @bottle don't know if you're looking for this but I'd love to contribute to Hinterlands. While I don't play much at all I am an artist and I'd love to have a project that lets me do some dark fantasy illustrations. I know I'm far from the level of GW illustrators but I want to work on realistic drawings, and if I can offer some illustrations for your Hinterlands book I'd be thrilled Here are some illustrations I did during my latest Mordheim kick three years ago (holy ****** time flies) : http://pierremortel.tumblr.com/post/86904484006 I don't know if I'd be able to do big scenic drawings (though I'd love to try) but I know I can manage small decorative illustrations like there used to be in the old GW rule books. You know, a crow on a couple of skulls, a far away warrior contemplating a ruined tower, a mysterious treasure chest, that kind of stuff... I understand that style is a matter of taste so no worries if you're not interested, and additionally to anyone reading this, if you need a couple of drawings feel free to ask me and I'll try to provide!
  6. Here's 2 other guys that are 90% done, I'll post them up with some flavor text when they're fully finished. Can't seem to be able to format well on mobile so here they are in order : the swine thief, The inbred fear-serf ,and my most recent kit-bash, the Deserter. I know the pictures are not great but I'm open to any criticism and tips, about painting or converting
  7. So I've actually made some decent progress on my painting, but I still have some detail work to do. I'll get to taking a few WIP shots, but in the meanwhile here's a black and white photo of my simplest mini, just a ghoul with a zombie head and a snail on its back. I also wrote some flavor text (more on my tga blog) : As the path crossed a small clearing, Harek stopped and turned to look behind him. The forest was quiet. Just the dripping tune of a hidden creek down in the depth of the valley, and up in the peaks, the wind howling. Yet he felt watched. Maybe the darkness was getting to him. Barely any light passed through the thick canopy of the giant pines. was something moving behind that tree? Just a bark-snail leeching off a rotten stump... with slightly unsteady hands he made the sign of the traveller's blessing, as much to calm himself as to ward off any evil spirits. The village should only be a few hours away now. Soon he'd be by a hot fire with a cold ale, and forget about that bloody Pale Eyes grove. He adjusted his pack and began walking again. Silence returned in the small clearing. A form slithered from old roots, bleak limbs briefly gleaming in the weak light, and disappeared again in the shadows along the path. Pale eyes faded in the dark.

    The stalker

    As the path crossed a small clearing, Harek stopped and turned to look behind him. The forest was quiet. Just the dripping tune of a hidden creek down in the depth of the valley, and up in the peaks, the wind howling. Yet he felt watched. Maybe the darkness was getting to him. Barely any light passed through the thick canopy of the giant pines. was something moving behind that tree? Just a bark-snail leeching off a rotten stump... with slightly unsteady hands he made the sign of the traveller's blessing, as much to calm himself as to ward off any evil spirits. The village should only be a few hours away now. Soon he'd be by a hot fire with a cold ale, and forget about that bloody Pale Eyes grove. He adjusted his pack and began walking again. Silence returned in the small clearing. A shape slithered from old roots, bleak limbs briefly gleaming in the weak light, and disappeared again in the shadows along the path. Pale eyes faded in the dark. ***** Stalkers like this one are the half-mad slaves of Moldek, the Fear-God. A lifetime ago they caved in to absolute terror, maybe running from cruel marauders, stuck down a dark cliff with a broken leg, or simply devoured by their inner demons. Moldek called to them, led them to a hiding place, a burrow, damp and dark. He let them cower while he whispered inside their minds, his snails climbing over their huddled bodies. They haunt the darkest reaches of the forest in small packs or alone, looking for carrion or easy prey to feed off of. Sometimes they'll venture into farms or hamlets at night, to take a child or slaughter some cattle. In their dark caves, they whisper in a grotesque shadow of their former language, tormented by unseen terrors, while the leech-snails come to feed.
  9. I just read your posts here and on your blog and I love it. Great atmosphere, cool setting, and it ties in very well with your terrain. I'm gonna keep following this, and post about my own setting too
  10. I've never actually played aos so my feedback is limited but heres what I think: Starting small is a good idea imho, but I don't know if playing the same 10 identical minis will really help immersion. I think your friend would have more fun and getinto it more easily if the starting band is a bit more varied, even if it's just a few giant rats and a rat ogre instead of just 10 clanrats. I suppose you'd play some scenarios? I think it really helps get into the game if you're not just trying to kill each other, but trying to capture something / kill a specific model/ get the warpstone etc. Also maybe letting him choose his clan, so he doesn't get a sorcerer when he wanted a cool ninja assassin... If he's really beginning the upgrades can even be simply changing a model for another or getting a new one, so your champion clanrat turns into an night-runner for instance... switching systems every 3 games may be more confusing than good, but you know him better than I do All in all it's a really cool idea, and he's lucky that you're so invested into it, I hope you'll tell us how it goes !

    Dreg addiction

    as always, awesome! the head is very well done. I've been trying my hand at sculpting but I think I lack method, it's always too rough, and the details are not crisp enough.
  12. This is really cool. Please continue, and post pictures with the images that inspired you next to them
  13. @Giuseppe gdb I love this! I can Imagine this as the pet of some creepy socialite lady, with a taste for the grotesque, or maybe as part of a duo of henchmen for a mad wizard, the other one being a big ogre-like bodyguard with a small animal's head... @Moonlightwolf this is a great warband concept, I love the idea of some peasants carrying around a strangers slowly rotting corpse in a pathetic quest to pay a life debt!

    Xlanax Lot Starblood's Prey

    Just saw your other reply, that's a very cool breakdown! I should try to approach my minis with more of a plan in mind, even if I'm far from your level yet

    Xlanax Lot Starblood's Prey

    haha that's pretty cool, like a lizard reflection of skryre technology.

    Xlanax Lot Starblood's Prey

    love this! does he have a mechanical arm?

    The cursed sheep

    Hey @Nin Win, yeah this is for a small warband following a minor deity who preys on fear! Most of the members have at least a demonic snail leeching off of them, and some are being slowly swallowed inside a bigger shell. The idea is that their god is letting them hide under his shadow but is slowly draining them of energy and sanity at the same time... so the more they are afraid, the more they let him take over, which only increases their paranoia...
  18. Pretty cool! I work in video fx and I know it takes a lot of effort to do that kind of work, well done
  19. Yeah I think you're on the right track! A more drab color palette, with hints of corruption and decay could work quite well. If you google pictures of the aral sea you can get some good inspiration for strange abandonned machinery too:

    The cursed sheep

    Here is the first mini of my project. It's not GW, actually it's just a toy farm animal but I think it sets the tone of this project quite well; this is not about gigantic hordes fighting high stakes battles for control of the realms. This is about skirmishes on the fringe of civilization, mutants raiding small farms, corrupted cattle, and all that "aesthetic of the pathetic" I keep hearing about!
  21. Hello ca pourrait m'intéresser, particulièrement si c'est possible de jouer de l'escarmouche
  22. @urion well you may not like them but they look sufficiently menacing! It's crazy how dark the sylvaneth got compared to 15-20 years ago... As for me I can't paint this weekend but here's one of my recent figs. There's nothing GW except the base, and if I had to use it in a game it probably would be a zombie... the base is not done yet but I think the paint job is ok, although I'd love some honest feedback
  23. Hey @Nin Win , yeah I'm imagining a mountainous region, dark pines, crumbling slate peaks, isolated villages.., hopefully I'll have some tests done next week, I already bought a few model pine trees
  24. @WilliamMatthews I love your warband! Lots of original Realm of Chaos flavor, and cool fluff for the models. Great job
