The Lion vs Curze artwork.

Hi all. 

Here is a fantastic image of the Lion and Curze.

The Horus Heresy: Inferno - Seminar

Howdy everyone =)

Last but not least - we have been waiting a long time for this ... I remember when they said it would be the book after Istvaan.

The Horus Heresy Book VII: Inferno! 













Space Wolves.


Thousand Sons.




Very early Leman Russ! Not his head - will come with his wolves!


New stories from Black Library soon for Space Wolves. 

Gav Thorpe is working on audio called The 13th Wolf. Different side of Prospero Burns this time.

Chris Wraight working on book on Leman Russ and Space Wolves during the Heresy. Involving one or maybe more Primarchs. Including some hes not got on with......

Graham McNeill is nearly done with Crimson King! Also working on more Magnus based stories.

Russ will get an axe and a sword.

Custodians are their own elite force, not like Space Marines 2.0! The Emperor saved the Custodes the best toys so look forward to heavy master weaponry. It's a highly lethal mobile force. They were designed to kill Space Marines if something goes wrong. 100% loyal to the Emperor, even beyond free will.

Playtest - 5 Custodians against 20 Tactical Marines, none of the Tacs were alive to fight back in combat!!! Not the full rules im sure - again, it's still playtesting.

Custodes will not have Rhinos and Land Raiders they will have their own vehicle types though and no heavy support but they will have an equivalent

Rules will come for Spireguard, possibly not models though. Might be a variant to the Solar Auxilia models.

Space Wolf Characters unconfirmed apart from Leman Russ, Freki and Geri.

Thousand Sons have a plan in their playstyle, not fully confirmed, still playtesting, be less of them, not usually in attritional warfare. Possibility of picking your option for Psyker-yness, that may improve equipment/weapons.

Tutilaries/Familiars will have above listing type (equipment/weapons).

Sisters of Silence will be a small allies list - not a "full force".

Sisters of Silence almost like Assassins hunting down all psykers.

During Heresy there will be limitation on unit types (they did not have access to certain things around this time) for Space Wolves, as their way of war gives them limitation to certain things. BUT! Space Wolves will have their own bespoke consuls and unit types!

Possible stories furthering the Thousand Sons that weren't on Prospero.

Space Wolves attack Arkhadia (Mechanicum world) - part of the campaigns in Inferno. This Mechanicum planet is targeted as he is associating with Magnus.

Arkhadine Mechanicum will have their own unique weapon and unit types, thanks to the help from Thousand Sons. This Cybernetica based Forgeworld will have its own Titan legion and it will have technology encouraged by the psychic aspects of the thousand sons. Which is why there will be multiple Titan Legion rules as there will be Legions sent to deal with them in Inferno.

Legio Mortis and a new type of Titan Legio (for Arcadia) but thats secret for now.

The seminar is over - what do you guys think so far about Inferno? Write in the comments below! :)

Knights Errant and The Silent War

Howdy everyone!

Knights Errant and The Silent War are next :)



The Alpha Legion are not only Legion to do secret missions. Silent Wars are done by both sides of war to stay out of history to tip the balance - not just Knight Errants. Other examples would be Assassins or Sisters of Silence.


Flight of the Eisenstein was meant to be called Unbroken originally.

The Sigilite is not just defending terra, he is moving forward to protect the human race.

It's the opposite to the Emperors plans, can counts planets/populous as expendable to defend humanity.

Unwittingly and unknowingly paving the way to human leadership if Emperor doesnt win in his actions.

Working situations to his benefit. Not to make things better, but how to use others to make an event to his interest. That said he is not a bad guy, just not very nice. In his ways due to his age Malcador has lost touch with humanity a bit. Not to protect everything, counts everyone as pieces on a board to play with.

The Chosen is a term that applies to non-space marines that can be used directly.

Malcador kind of isolates himself. On his own with noone to share to (since the Emperor is busy fighting in the Webway) - this is kind of the reason why he antagonises Dorn and other Primarchs.

More Garro stuff coming! New Garro book out soon!

Also, another one - working title - Weapon of Fate - compilation of Garro as well as new stuff. Should be out next year.

Ison from Vow of Faith expanded. He is an Iron Hands Character.

There are more than 20 Knight Errants!

"The 20" were an original list of names from Malcador. Each of them recruited on their own, i.e Varren recruited by Garro is not on this list.

End of the seminar - looks like there is quite a few things to come for the Grey K .... i mean Knights Errant :)

Darko Thane, Lady Atia and the other Battle Bunnies =)

The Art of the Heresy Seminar

Howdy everyone :)

Next seminar is the Art of the Heresy - it's all about artworks, concepts and illustrations - keep checking back =)








Ok - now we have the art we are waiting for :) - you can see the concept art for the new Dark Mechanicum Magos!

Horus was based on M. Brando.

Al Pachino and Brando was an amalgamation for Dynatt.


Forgeworld of Xana.


Nocturne.



Uses the surface of Venus!


Colours are changed - Isolated the pales and turned to Lava.


Mark Bedfords sketches for Secutarii.


Will get better pics from Mark's sketchbook later. Vlka Fenryka!


Artisan style. Scrimshawing etc.



Every photo starts like this.


Put pic on top and blue section needs to be in focus.


Shadows are added from light source.


They mask the bases. They then use it as a watermark.



The Path of Heaven


The Silent War.


Sevarion! And Malcador and Sigismund. Space Marines can have a hair cut. Regarding Sigismund.



Lion and Curze! Angels of Caliban.


Inspiration was the fight seen at the end of the Lion King :D


End of the seminar - looks like some awesome stuff to come from Black Library in the next months!

Oh, and I also have two cool teasers for Inferno for you all - BIG THANKS @ m_r_parker - you are awesome :) <3
