T’au Cadre Fireblade D’yini 2

SHOWCASE: T’au Cadre Fireblade

The abandoned depot was a welcome shelter from the abrasive ruststorm that howled outside. The T’au vanguard had made camp amongst ancient manufactorum crates and now huddled together around the blue glow of their fusion-heaters. Hovering drones hummed and whirred around the perimeter, motes of dust dancing in their infrared beams. Shas’nel D’yini’s jaw was set sternly as she listened to the latest reports from her scouts.

SHOWCASE: Standard Bearer of Tzeentch

 At the heart of the horde a bronze-clad titan stood, implacable and immense. It bore a great icon wreathed in hellfire and around it’s helm, an unholy corona of wychflame glow’d.

Today I get to celebrate a hobby milestone that any painter can take pride in – a model featured in the hallowed pages of White Dwarf!

Tzeentch Sorcerer by technasma

SHOWCASE: Disciples of Tzeentch

In the fractal realities of Tzeentch’s labyrinth, time and space are subverted. Years pass in the blink of an eye and prisoners of these chaotic realms find themselves spontaneously vomited out into planes of existence very different from those they left behind.

In the world that was, I was working on a Chaos Sorcerer and a mutant flock of Forsaken. Now, these warped servants of Tzeentch find themselves fully painted and reborn into the Mortal Realms. Let’s take a look.

WIP: Tzeentch Chaos Warband – Warhammer: Age of Sigmar

Those that walk the Path to Glory seek immortal power from their mercurial master. Yet the will of  Tzeentch is capricious and his Path is strewn with The Lost and The Damned.

Greetings Arcanites! As it’s #WorkInProgressWednesday on the webz I thought I’d share some of the current miniatures on my work bench.

WIP: Blanchitsu Black Knights

Resplendent in the finery of a bygone age, Black Knights are a decaying mockery of once noble templars. Now these baleful revenants are consumed with loathing for those who’s hearts still beat within their chest.

Quick post today guys, it’s been really busy again lately! Here are some more of Tim’s impressive collection of John Blanche inspired undead. This time we’ve got the first part of a unit of Black Knights. Continue reading

WIP: Blanchitsu Crypt Horror

Ghastly shrieks and guttural howls come from deep within the necropolis. The charnel stench of open graves belies the presence of the corpse-eaters. Surely, to venture further through these forsaken crypts would be to consign oneself to eternal residence amongst the silent, desecrated dead…

Just a quick blog post today to show you some work on the first of a unit of Age of Sigmar Crypt Horrors I’ve been working on. Continue reading

Showcase: Blanchitsu Skeletons

The unquiet spirits of ancient warriors once again heed the summons war. Blasphemously tethered to their mortal remains they march from crypt and barrow beneath the tattered banners of a bygone Age.

Shambling from their tombs this week, a rotting regiment of Blanchitsu inspired skeletons. Continue reading

Showcase: Blanchitsu Dire Wolves

The fell winds of Shyish stir the bones of long dead beasts. Haunting banshee-howls pierce the night and then comes the carrion stench, thick and heavy in the air. Make haste traveler, the hunt of the Dire Wolves has begun!

Things have been a bit dead here at Technasma with real life getting in the way… However now things are not just dead, they are Undead and back from the grave with a vengeance! We’ve got some all sorts of grizzly and ghoulish miniatures to share, all inspired by Warhammer’s Arch Illuminator, the inimitable John Blanche. Continue reading

Let There Be Blood! Blanchitsu Daemon

Enticed from the empyrean by the tang of sacrificial blood, a lesser daemon of Khorne manifests into the material realm.

Khorne has been getting a lot of love recently, so to honour the Blood God today we present one of his minions. This is a bit of a throw back to a mini that was painted a few years ago. This guy is the first of many models painted in a ‘Blanchitsu’ style, and ultimately spawned an entire army of Vampire Counts painted in this way!

In the same way as the Cairn Wraith that we featured a few weeks ago, the colours on the Bloodletter were built up from a dark crimson basecoat. Highlights were added with drybrushing and glazes of off-white and bone to emulate the style of John Blanche’s concept art. The scales were picked out in Vallejo Model Scrofulous Brown .

The hellblade was dulled down with several glazes of brown and sepia paints and some Devlan Mud wash. I then went back to pick out the sharp edges with Mithril Silver.

It was good fun to tackle a Khorne model that isn’t just blood red! They have a really creepy, almost alien feel to them, that I just love. At some point we’d like to work on a Khorne Goretide army for Age of Sigmar – the new models are simply fantastic.
