Still open to suggestions on what the Zombie King could be/be leader of.

Horrifying boners aside, I had a bit of an epiphany with my entry:


After finally putting some licks of paint on this guy (and repinning him after he came apart when I drilled the barrels), I remembered that Stimmers technically aren't leaders per se. They can "lead" other models via group activation, but they can only become gang leaders if they're chosen after the real boss croaks. Does that still count as an entry then? Because if not, I have another one ready.

Sci-fi-ification in progress.
Chainglaive & Stimm slug stash! for the win!

Need to have a go at sculpting some boots, as I can't think of anything worse than bare feet on necromunda! Whether you're in the underhive or the wastes!

You're off to a good start.

Boots and alternate legs with boots scaled to human, ork and Goliath scale models are what I wish I could buy/make using a 3D printer.

First port of call was removing some of the excess of spikes on the armour plates of the Slaughterpriest. I then stood him among his mutie followers, and that's whenI realised quite how BIG the priest model is.


I know it's supposed to be large and in charge, but even so this seems like overkill.

So I removed the thick belt from the waist, saving 2-3mm, and trimmed a little more height from the boot and rock. Then I thought if I can't make him any shorter, I can at least make him appear shorter by having him bent over further - hence the new more aggressive direction I'm going with the pose which I'll call "the bull charge".


Other than adding a tattered loincloth, that's where I'm up to now.

seeing some of these other beasts coming to life, and next to the Zee Cult champions I’m working on to go with it,I think my Zombie King may not be Large and In Charge enough. Might have to demote this one and build a biggun.

My entry for Comp #45

********

The Secretary to System Governor Hestus DeTrana Silvus looked up from the report he was holding as the Governor strode into the anteroom. He was, as usual, wearing his full dress uniform. Spotless and resplendent with golden braid, medal ribbons, the jewels of various orders, and of course his heavy, solid-gold chain of office. All neatly tailored over his corpulent form.

“Ah, My Lord, you’ve returned from your meeting with those Tau fellows, did it go well Sire?”

The governor just grunted.

The Secretary paused for a second, and continued:

“I have a report from the monitoring station about those ships I mentioned dropping out of the warp in the outer reaches, if you’d care to take a look…?”

Governor Silvus glanced briefly at the paper and rolled his eyes.

“Very well. I shall surmise it for you. There are three ships, all Imperial patterns” – so far no reaction, ships coming in wasn’t that unusual, even out here in the Pergamon sector – “One of unusual configuration, the Cogitors took a while to work out it was an Armageddon class Battlecruiser…” – a slight furrow of the brow, quickly controlled. Something the size of a Battlecruiser was unusual.

“The other two are more our usual fare – Light Cruisers. Endeavour class. Lots of gun batteries apparently. The names are interesting…” - the Secretary struggled to fight the smirk tightening the corners of his mouth – “The Light Cruisers are showing up as the Witness and the Pursuer. The Battlecruiser is called the Final Judgement.”

There it was, the slight twitch of the eye, the flesh of the face going from unhealthy, blotchy pink to an even less healthy pallor.

“The cogitors didn’t have any trouble referencing those names, apparently the organisation they belong to have a pattern of ship names – watching, evaluating, chasing… sentencing…”

A single bead of sweat slid from bald temple to tight collar, staining the royal blue slightly darker.

“I’m sure the Holy Orders of the Emperor’s Inquisition is just visiting of course. Perhaps here to ratify your new trade deal with the Tau! After all, you haven’t personally organised anything heretical, of course! There was that detachment of Imperial Guard you assured us were traitorous and had annihilated – all good there. And naturally it was quite right that the planetary defence budget be cut to pay for this palace – and it is a lovely palace – and those tithes you’ve been arranging with that Governor Skerkzes – the fellow who has that star tattoo on his cheek and all those rather unkempt palace guards – those are, of course, all above board. After all, you assured us it was so, and personally signed the documentation.”

The breathing was shallow and rapid now. The Governor slipped his hand to his collar, and popped it open roughly. One gold and diamond button tinkled to the black marble floor.

The quiet was broken by a gentle but insistent pinging.

“Ah look, an incoming long-range transmission, patched directly here – look at that. Shall I put it through to your office…?”

The Governors hands spasmed slightly as he undid the flap on his heavily embellished ceremonial holster and drew the damascene and pearl emblazoned bolt pistol. He strode towards his office with it dangling from his hand as he pushed the door open.

“Ah! Yes, give them the impression you’re doing some target practice! A good idea – they’ll see you as a prepared man, a man ready to defend his Governorship from the hazards that beset the imperium! That will please them!”

The Governor slowly closed and locked the door behind him with a gentle click.

The ornate hand-carved doors were almost thick enough to muffle the single bolt shot. Almost.

The Secretary, grinning widely, answered the long-range call.

“I’m afraid His Excellency Governor Hestus DeTrana Silvus is… indisposed at the moment. How may I help?”
