0 The Chaos Manifesto vs Iron Sleet #5

"To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times."

Tinkering and toiling away, I create one thing so that I can destroy something else.  I built this consortium not for the needs of those around me but for the sheer indulgence of my malicious wants.  The lives of those around me matter little but our bond is held together none the less. I do not distress in their constraints breaking as I have tied the knots with fear itself.  They know my wraith is an endless cruelty from which they dare not play with.  As a failsafe I've empowered them with indulgences beyond their comprehension.  Once feeble outcasts with nothing to show for themselves I have lifted them up above the filth from which they came.  Their augmentation give them purpose but more importantly make them useful to the society that I have created.  

"Hellwright, Zulfiqar, existed beyonds any natural means of existence.  He has evaded time itself and with death as well.  The sheer amount of augmentation that compose of his body makes it quick to see how he has accomplish this goal.  What many do not realize though is that he has been blessed by "She who thirsts".  Through his unadulterated self mutilations and the indulgence of blending man with machine Zulfiqar is without a doubt a disciple of Slaanesh.  Stimulating not only his own wanton lusts he indulges those around him as well.  Through vicious augmentations to illicit narcotics they quickly become dependant upon him.  It is through these imprisoned followers that he has rising to power in the Thorn Moons.  He knows that man has its limits and preys only on those cast aside by society.  He knows not to directly attack the institutions of man but rather aims to erode away at its foundations.  It hear in the darkness and filth that his work can go unnoticed.  It is here that he thrives as a Rogue Trader."

As the days tick bye, I have been toiling away myself on painting my Corrupt Rogue Trader, Zulifiqar, and his augmented denizens. I am currently approaching them as a whole in an attempt to speed up the process.  Batch painting them in stages will allow me to maximize my time while relying on a few tried and tested paint schemes.  The first of which is giving each of them a rust foundations from which to stand upon.  It is a messy affair of reds, oranges and yellows but is rooted into the mud through the use of brown.  To help draw the eye through the murky depths of corruption I have dry brushed the edges with some silver to draw out the details.

At this stage my vision of accomplish is barley legible but with time and appreciation I will achieve my goal.  As I put the finishes touches on this blog post my models for the Iron Sleet Invitational are bathing in concoction of purple and green wash with a hint of chestnut ink.  This mixture creates a deep black that is ideal for metals while blending the colours together.  More importantly it brings shading into the recesses of the model thus pulling out the details as that is where the devil is.  More importantly here is what most of you have been waiting to see the models themselves.  Be sure to head over to as they have begun revealing the 100 entries into the Thorn Moons Crusade.
