Group shot photo edited after some more painting. Now they shall be stored away so I can litter my desk with other stuff.

This was a fun challenge, trying to re-create artwork in miniature form.

Hope the other participants are having at least as much of a good time as I had! Looking forward to seeing yoar stuff!!!

First draft of my guilds fluff, comments and criticism welcome. I take it noone has the rule book style page as a template...?

Apologies in advance for the spelling punctuation and grammar!

Mercator automina

The machine guild regulates the trade and production of servitors, whilst Lord Helmwar may play fast and loose with many of the imperium's laws, the ancient edict banning thinking machines is not one of them. Servitors are key to many from simple monotasked servo drones that survey the miles of piping and duct work of the hive, through to the feared and cyborg assassins unleashed by the houses on each other in times of strife, the machine guild supplies and controls them all.

Almost by default the machine guild has strong links with the adeptus mechanicus with many of their menials and artisans inducted into the most basic tenates of the cult. This almost inevitably leads to members of the guild being heavily augmented as they begin to see the flesh as weak and needing to be replaced.

The machine guild often has business in the underhive. The rogue gangs of servitors which stalk the badlands are pointed to by the slave guild as proof that servitors can no more be trusted than their human slaves. The guild regually sends bands into the underhive to purge this groups before word of their existence can seep back uphive. Whilst purging a nest of rogue servitors may well be a welcome service it is the machines guild's other business in the underhive that has created their reputation as feared monsters, human beings are one of the key resources of necromunda, but even on a planet of billions even this resource is finite. Whilst the machine guild takes much of its supply from necromunda's prisons or specialist growth vats sometimes this just isn't enough. In times such as this the guild may dispatch enslaving parties to the underhive. Equipped with rudimentary mobile surgery facilities and enough firepower to subdue the small settlements that exist outside the protection of any house or guild these parties are one of the worst of the underhive's bogey men, for whilst their are miriad ways to die in the underhive, ending your days trapped inside an augmented body unable to escape act outside your simple programme is for many a fate worse than death.

I didn't come up with anything particularly inventive for this. To tell the truth, I'm still not sure how clear I am on the 'brief' given that I don't play N18. However, here's some stuff that I made and painted during the competition period, so I'm going to call it my Frostgrave corpse guild:

Hey guys.

Heres my entry. Waterguild.

The idea was inspired by tbe computer game bioshock.

An extractor "saves" the water from a dead hiver... His big bodyguard is waiting for instructions.

This weekend was real challenging what with the wind and rain making priming exceedingly difficult! In the end I was able to start painting last night, which means I got two of the four models finished - I haven't finished the floating anti grav chain gun dude, nor the cart he is towing.

Still, here's what I do have. Presenting my (very small) Corpse Guild Collection Party.

Bits:
- Master Nautican (Flumius Quench) is based on the Navigator model with a Mechanicus robot head
- Syphonite (Nausicaa Sluice) has a Delaque skirt and a Drukhari torso, witht he same Mechanicus head
- Subnautican (Merrimack) is based on a Bullgryn with some kind of ForgeWorld drone thing as a head
They're all festooned with bottles, wires and needles from a range of kits, especially the Mechanicus range and the Drukhari Talos. The bases all contain pools of water effect, which are hard to see in these shots.

I've been posting WIPs on my Instagram stories—can repost them here if that's strictly necessary (mods?)

@Kommissar Shriken , If you have your photo in a gallery or insta or whatever I can reference, otherwise I can only put your attachement in as it is.
