For those of you following the blog lately, you’ve seen my fascination with the Ordo Chronos. This obscure (and, seemingly vanished) branch of the Inquisition was formed to prevent and combat time-based anomalies and threats, for example those caused by warp-based travel (because of time dilation related to warp travel, ships can emerge from the warp with years or even decades or centuries having passed in real time while the crew on board only experienced weeks passing; even more unsettling are the accounts of ships emerging before they ever actually jumped into the warp. But I digress).
While I wait for various coats of paint to dry on my Ordo Chronos warband and the Grotesque Entourage, I thought I’d post some pics of various henchmen figures I’ve been tinkering with for various warbands and to serve as NPCs in the Once-Hive of Sepsis-Sigma.
A quick update and in-progress sketch.
Well, I’m getting married this Saturday and then off for a week-long honeymoon after, and in the midst of all the last-minute planning and prep and excitement, I thought I’d throw up this last post (for now) of some more WIP projects and some of my models and warbands that I plan to finish up once I get back.
I’ve continued to bang away on the Hard Cases and am having a blast with them. Here are a couple of new additions. Pretty simple conversions, but here’s a half-cybernetic Death Cultist and a shotgun-toting henchman:
A few more members of my Ordo Chronos warband. The backstory on these fellows is that they are the remnants of an Inquisitor’s retinue that have been scattered throughout the space-time continuum following a Warp/time travel experiment gone awry.
Not as much backstory on these guys (yet). I’ve been doing some slow and steady work scratch-building a Penitent Engine (you can see WIP shots on my thread at the Ammobunker: http://s3.zetaboards.com/The_Ammobunker/topic/9018157/3/#new). In doing some research for inspiration, I came across the following images:
By hideous fife and horn they are heralded. By the cadence of drum and the slap of rag-draped feet do they parade along the viaducts of the Once-Hive of Sepsis-Sigma.
Sepsis-Sigma. A moniker given to the ruins of a hive city and the ruins of a world. Not their original name, but it will do. Some unknown series of catastrophes befell both in recent history, but the exact nature of those catastrophes is unknown to all but a few due to the byzantine workings of the Imperium of Man.
