Witness the Glory of the Emperor  

Posted by Hal'jin in , , ,

Here we go. You all wanted to see them and there they are. The Psyker Battle Squad. Still a very early WIP, but it gives a nice picture overall. Without further ado..

Before we start though, a little background. The Psyker Battle Squad was assigned to the 42nd Cadian by Adepta Astra Telepathica to counter enemy psykers and wreck havoc upon foes of the Emperor. It's composition is quite unusal however. It is lead by 3 seasoned Sanctioned Psykers that are experienced on the field of battle and know well how to channel the powers of the warp. Under their jurisdiction are 6 adept psykers (So each experienced psyker schools two of them). They're a ragtag bunch that, while worthy enough not to be sacrificed to the great Astronomican beacon, might be more or less useless lonely. Together they channel raw power of the warp that is shaped by the three mentors. Some of these adepts one day might become mentors themselves, but most will just be reduced to gibbering wrecks within a year or less and replaced with another shipment... Behind them stands a solitary man, highly trained by Adepta Astra Telepathica in restrainment of emotions and cold calculation. His only duty - to hold that pistol tight and make sure the psykers make no mistakes... lest he redeems their souls..

There will be more fluff regarding them upcoming. You maybe noticed a small sidebar title "42nd Background". Expect more to appear there relatively soon!

Now, for the interesting part, the pictures!

Here are the three mentors:

And if you click below you will find out more...

What did I use to make my psykers? Well I'm sure most of you could've guessed that as it seems it'll be a popular choice. Here:

Yup, the Empire Flagellants. But before them, the Overseer I've shown a while before. Now finished!

And finally the Psykers themselves. As I said still quite an early WIP, will have lots more work on them, though the basic parts are there. Now just lots and lots of GS...

That's it for today. School is getting more and more annoying (But I think I did pass that maths test which would mean no exam for me!) so I have less and less time. But I'll post a couple of other WIPs shortly, I think. And a certain key figure of the army that finally got his colors...

In the other news I varnished my entire army. Sure looks as good as it did before and is protected, woo!

Also, there's a new poll on the right. As some of you noticed, there has been an assault of heretical ad-commenters on my blog. They have been purged by fire and precautions have been taken - the entire layout is linked via my Picasa account, rather than "their" hosting. Even though, they still could have logs and the site address. That's why Disqus _could_ stop them. Otherwise I'll probably have to contact Blogger administrator.
Anyway, if you see an aforemention heretic, feel free to use your bolt pistol at will.

And lastly, the layout is almost done. Only things left are really minor changes (though they could impact a whole lot) that I will implement gradually as I'll have more time.

What a great way of getting round the shortage of good psyker models! Both the conversions and the fluff are excellent, great job mate :)

That Overseer really is looking nice. I am glad you did not listen to that crazy guy that suggested a device or book or something in the off hand... (insert shifty eyes here)

Echoing previous comments here, but can not wait to see them all painted up.

I like those psykers! The staffs are quite nice on them and lend just the right feeling to them.

Where did you get the tops of the pysker's staffs? They don't look metal.

Thanks for the comments all! Still quite a lot of work to do on these and so little time!

The tops are actually resin casts of the staff top. There's a guy 'round here that's good at this kind of stuff.
