“Brothers, we have realised unity, for after this day we will have achieved the ambition of our creator. Old earth has been dragged from precipice of destruction, what was once fractured will, after this day, be made whole again. Through blood and sacrifice, amidst the savagery that is our way of war, we have maintained the essence of our humanity. Whether by design or by fate, like humanity, we are destined to taste mortality.”

Last words of Arik Taranis, prelude to the battle of Mount Ararat 978.M29

Welcome Frater,

Inspired by INQ28 (although, accepting I may never achieve the heights of quality that INQ28 artists can boast), Ive decided to start a new WIP blog focused on small groups of models. I really enjoy the process of creation, and we have never had such a wealth of plastic and third party kits from which to draw inspiration. The blog will be based around the unification of terra, I hope to explore some of the factions at war during this setting as well as, in time, develop a new rule set, drawing ideas from 3rd, 7th, 8th editions of Warhammer 40,000 and Necromunda.

The first advancement into the setting was my vision of a Thunder Warrior. I have borrowed heavily from others (if you run an image search, you will see what I mean), but I have built upon their ideas, taking concepts a step further, standing on the shoulders of giants.

I decided, early on in the process, that the original “Mk1 thunder armour” design by GW, was perhaps not the intended concept for the Thunder warriors. In the new Primarch novel “Ferrus Manus” one of the characters wears Mk1 power armour, so in my mind, there must be a difference between a space marine in Thunder armour and a Thunder warrior. The short extracts of information we have about thunder warriors point towards a creation that is physically the superior of the Adeptus Astartes, but one that was doomed to the ravages of mortality.

I did not intend this first thunder warrior to be Arik Taranis, but felt that a comment from the most prestigious and renown Thunder Warrior, would be a fitting start to the blog.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating it! Although, a word of warning, this project will be fairly slow in its progress, I’m a 30K die hard at heart, but between painting ceramite, I will turn my hand to this project.

Very nice start and great use of parts. I especially like the use of the chains, it is really top notch stuff overall. :tu:

Awesome start to your new project! I would definitely love to see more Thunder Warriors and whatever factions you bring pack from the past.

Thanks for the kind words Doghouse!

Thanks Husrong, I have a few more thunder warriors planned, I also have a reasonable idea for the “Tupulov Lancers”, and will probably, at some point explore “the men of iron”. Watch this space.

I like it. How'd you do the chains?


Thanks Feirros. The chains were made from individual strands of fine brass chain cut to size. First, press a small amount of green stuff at the base of the chains. This gives you the opportunity to reposition the chain, once you have pressed it in place. When you are happy with the position, load some superglue onto an old scalpel blade and run it down the chain. You then have a few seconds to reposition the chain before the glue dries (inevitably some of the links will curl up or attach themselves to the adjacent chains).

Hope that helps?

Oh yeah! Just keep it coming! I’m super tempted to try and do a Heralds of Ruin kill team of Thunder Warriors. However, I thought about making one and using it as a mutilator with my Alpha Legion. Maybe they captured and kept it on ice or grew one and just let them loose to murder everything. Far out idea but I think it could work.

Now you’ve given me an idea for an obliterator. A man of iron!

Again, please keep it competing so I can borrow some ideas. ;)

Thanks for the tip. Should be helpful for my Iron Hands once I find the time to work on them.

Grey, however, failed to capture the ape. It escaped to France where it murdered a rich widow and was hanged.

Thanks war angel, I’m hoping to start building another soon, but it takes a little while.

Too kind mate, your terminators are something pretty special!

Never skip leg day


Lol, I need to include that as a thunder warriors journal entry “thought for the day”. Perhaps that’s the real reason why they never achieved more than unification?

I think the Tartarus body lends a degree of bulk to the torso, but, in my minds eye, if I strip away the armour I’m fairly happy with the proportions. I remember a small piece of info (it may have been fan based but I still like the idea) that only the upper torso of the thunder warrior was armoured and powered, this combined with their upper body strength meant they were unequaled in combat at the time. I quite like the unnecessary bulk the torso has, it speaks more about the rudimentary technology that would have been in development.

Thanks for making me laugh though!

Great work Cadmus, you've combined parts from a wide range of kits and created something that looks better than any of the individual kits.

 

Looking forward to seeing this develop.
