Those look really cool.

I might have to try and convert some of those grenadiers when I eventually get back to my steel legion.

Those coloured sketches are awesome ! If these existed as plastic models I'd be sorely tested !

Looks like FW was catching on to your Sicaran/tank ideas! Did you see the new punisher/Sicaran/plasma variants? :D

Oh, rad - I can't imagine collecting Steel Legion is the easiest thing in the world, so that's awesome to hear

Thanks dude - the fact that you could see them as plastic minis is exactly what I'm going for

Ha, I wouldn't necessarily go that far, but yeah I have seen them. To be honest, I wasn't exactly convinced when I first saw them - I still think the plasma version's guns are a bit too big & not particularly mobile, but I've warmed to the other two, despite initial misgivings about the appropriateness of the missile launcher & the weight distribution on the punisher's weapon mount.

 

In light of the new Sicaran variants, I'm gonna review my own designs & probably remove a few whose' purpose is now kinda redundant. The three I'm probably keep / refine are the 'Advancer' Scout / Command Transport, I'll be altering the Lanius so it's tri-barreled Volkite Cascade is now a single large weapon that will use the punisher's mount, and an air-defence variant using the new missile launcher twin-mount

No need to remove them, they're still great and could simply be a variation on the more prominent design of the others!

 

Now where are them 9th legion units at? ;)

No units for legions without official ForgeWorld units.

 

Which kills me, as I love the fluff for everything IHF's done so far but I need me some black and red Angels.

Wait, wait, wait. Someone was listening? All these years? Each time I refused requests and explained why I wouldn't be doing something?

 

I thought this day would never come - honestly, I was pretty sure people only looked at the pictures msn-wink.gif

Haha the picture are wonderful but I love the fluff bits behind your work. My blackshields band is composed of Night Lords and Dark Angels who fled Thramas together so there's some Alastor Seekers in the ranks and they're led by a flenser-apothecary, but what about the Dark Angels?

 

I need Angelus already.

You saying this a while back is only reason I haven't been continuously pestering you for BA stuff. I saved the stuff you did do locally and will eventually break out the GS to attempt it.

The Blood Angels are the Renaissance in power armour, with all of that majesty, splendour, and ingenuity turned anaemic by vampirism... with a mandate to conquer the galaxy on wings of iron and fire. They're paladins with sacred weapons and beauteous facemasks, crying out in inhuman choirs for the taste of their enemies' blood.

That's awesome - glad you think they work in the setting, adhering to the style set out in FW's HH books is a pretty significant goal in all this stuff

Huh, that sounds awesome - let me know whenever you give that a go

Nah, I was just kidding dude - I know this thread can be a bit of a PITA to find stuff in, so don't worry about it

 

Waiting for Angelus is kinda essential for this stuff, considering how much it's informed by the FW Books & the ways they present & detail the Legions - with the tendency to put different spins on themes we're familiar with, they open up entirely new avenues for exploration

Hey folks, for anyone who doesn't follow my vehicle design thread, I'll be going on a bit of a design hiatus:

 

Hey folks, said I'd keep y'all updated on how the job application was progressing, and today I got word that my application has been declined.

 

I'm not super surprised, this was always a bit on a wing & a prayer. It does however mean that I'll likely stop putting time into designs like these, or do them *very* occasionally - previously I could justify the time expenditure as being portfolio work for future job applications but from now on I'll really have to dedicate the time to commission works and less specific portfolio stuff, as this route into concept art seems pretty firmly closed to me now.

 

Anyway, thanks for following my stuff over the years, it's been really encouraging to see people enjoying my work, and probably helped me make the final decision to try for a career in art after I'd firmly turned away from it.

 

I'll keep these threads open, cause there's a *chance* I'll eventually do more stuff that's relevant to them, but either way, thanks for all the kind words over the years

I'm sorry to hear that bro. You'll definitely be missed around here. I know that your work has inspired a lot of people over the years, so thank you for everything that you've done and thank especially for sharing it with us :)

 

Wishing you all the best for the future :tu:

Thanks Kizz, that's real nice to hear - I'll still be about on the forum, I just won't really be doing designs like these much, but I'm sure I'll use it as a creative outlet every now & then. Might even give me a chance to work on my homebrew Clan's background article now that they're (...maybe msn-wink.gif  ) canon

 

Either way, I'll see ya 'round happy.png

Accidentally did some concept sketches when i was bereft of my graphics tablet & therefore had to do some traditional art - idle doodles ended up as some designs for the Emperor's Children Sun-Killer Devastators I did rules / background for a while back, really just 'cause EC armour is pretty fun to draw and it was cool to apply their styling to some MkII:

Awesome stuff! The icon is spectacular! Wish I'd thought of it! Or you'd done it before I'd done my sunkiller icon!

I'll have to see what I can to model these! I especially like the las cannon muzzle!
