This a rough comic scene idea I had; here my House Umbra (Delaque) gangers are arranging a drugs (maybe spook?) trade with the mutie gang. First panel is the meeting, second and third the House Umbra gang leader is getting the quality tested by a fellow ganger on their hand scanner. Following that are some notes of where the story could go from there.
These following pages are from about 2005, I wasn’t putting dates on my sketchbooks then so I can’t be sure. The first scene is an image I had of a poorer house, (House Cawdor in Necromunda) reminiscent of the worker rabble in Metropolis (1927) being stirred to riot with some anti-deviant rantings as Torquemada is fond to do in 2000AD’s Nemesis the Warlock. On the right are some symbols and a sinister ganger from my House Umbra, a lesser clan aligned to House Delaque.Metropolis

I’ve been a bit under the weather recently, hence the lack of updates on this website. While I’m recovering I thought I’d post some things I’ve been working on and off over the last few years. This is an image I created in 2006 inspired by Necromunda’s House Delaque and The City of Lost Children Cyclops cult also Dark City’s Strangers.
I’ve always found the Warhammer 40,000’s Imperial Inquisition a fascinating side to Games Workshop’s flagship game so here I’ve sketched a team for the Ordo Xenos (the alien hunting branch of the Inquisition). We’ve got an Adepta Sororitas and a Deathwatch Imperial Space Marine, a gunfighter and in the background the Ordo Xenos inquisitor himself.Warhammer 40,000 Ordo Xenos
On the facing page are a couple more mutant gangers. In the middle is a fat mutant who uses a giant crossbow and a makeshift windlass for loading it. At the bottom right is a female mutant who has made an armoured carapace to hide in the junkheaps and take pot shots with her hand-made scrap-launching gun.

Some strange doodles on the left (a German nutcracker, a shield design for an Undead Army (red skull-moon over black castle), a fishman mask idea, a flaming horse, ratman and a green dog-man using his voice as a sonic weapon) and on the right is my Mutant Psyker, a Fat Mutie and some SF hologram text.
Fast forward to 2015-ish and I feel like sketching my jolly mutant band again (on the left page you can see my Xeno-archaeologist examining an alien skull ). I’ve sketched the current bunch; the giant biffo mutie, the bald, pallid psychic mutant, the crazy clown-haired leader with his metal claw arm and various others.
This is my line-up of mutants; a mutie wide-faced woman with a scrap-shotgun, a melting-faced fat mutant with a giant crossbow, the mutant psychic (now a dwarf), the giant dude, the clown-haired leader and the berserker.
