Fantastic additions to the Imperial family and auxiliary officials.  Love the Burke inspired palette for the official.  No doubt he will be one of the first to die horribly every encounter...

What makes you think that? It's not like he would smuggle a bunch of eggs he found in a Space Hulk or anything ;)

Some more lovely figures, with painting that good you can totally justify the second copies of the Colony 87 figures.

My penultimate entry in the year-long '40K Adventurers' project- the Ventolin Pirate (actually a boarding party of them ;))





I also 3D printed a boarding torpedo by Dragon's Rest.



I have about a dozen pics on the blog:

Stunning additions, taking the Ventolins to full throttle!
 :o :o

The conversions all work so well and the Servitors and boarding craft take them to another level.

Thanks everybody, much appreciated.

I'm almost through the Astropaths now- the last of the 'Adventurers'. Then a scenic piece finale' to show them with. Hope to get the lot photographed prior to the New Year.

As ever, some more very lovely work.  I particularly like the idea of boarding shield servitors and may well steal that idea - I've got one of those servitors knocking around without any particular use, so some photos have been duly saved in my inspiration folder.

Re: Dr Mathias's Warhammer 40K Thread - The Gretch
« Reply #404 on: December 24, 2020, 12:04:35 AM »
Excerpt from Esoteric Pilgrimage Destinations of the Gothic Sector, Volume 7, by Adept Matthias Laetorius.

"One of the more charming traditions enjoyed by citizens of Ophatran Secundus is associated with Saint Christophorus. On the eve of his feast day, sacred relics of Christophorus are taken from their shrines and given over to a masked actor known as the "Gretch". The honor of portraying the Gretch in each neighborhood is given to a discharged war hero of the Imperial Guard, and they are afforded special indulgences for taking on the role."



"As the sun sets, members of the Ministrorum provide the children of the neighborhood fruits, and they set out to find the 'Gretch who stole Christophorus'. They roam their district hunting for the hidden cache, and upon finding the Gretch, drive it away from the relics in a ferocious mock battle. It is interesting to see the citizenry being taught proper reviling of xenoforms through a whimsical allegory. The children are awarded special confections and printed tracts detailing the lives of Imperial Saints for their enthusiasm in recovering the relics."



"Although some claim that the Gretch tradition hails from ancient Terra, I have found through rigorous research that many millennia ago Ophatran Secundus was on the periphery of a large Orkish invasion, and it is my belief that the Gretch lives on as a cultural memory from that trying time. Most citizens politely refuse to dig too deep into the tradition... otherwise they would need to confront the uncomfortable fact that if all the relics of Saint Christophorus were assembled, they would provide enough bones to represent two Astra Militarum regiments."
