Combining my liking for classic British Horror films (such as The Devil Rides Out (1968), The Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971), Witchfinder General that sort of thing) with Warhammer Age of Sigmar seemed a natural choice, especially near Hallowe’en when I had this idea.
I sketched these as there isn’t an up-to-date zombie kit from Games Workshop, after all they’ve got ghosts (The Nighthaunt, Ghouls (Flesh-eater Courts) and so on. The technology has moved on from their almost twenty-year old characterful Zombies kit so this would be a great way to re-introduce zombies into Warhammer. I’ve sketched a battered Stormcast Relictor, a Lizardman (Seraphon if you like) hero sent on a holy quest by the Slann, a wandering Wood (A)elf Grove Warden (a druidic type wizard with some sprite helpers), a human Vampire hunter at the top and a Kharadron Dwarf lady. On the right side of the page there are some ideas for a Flesh Golem, a mad Vampire bad-guy (on his way to becoming a Varghulf) and a few zombies!
As with all of my Games Workshop related posts this is entirely fan art.
Here’s a thing, Games Workshop has sculpted something I’ve sketched (the iron maiden Pentitent Engine). It’s just a coincidence of course, they were thinking on the same lines as I was!
Here’s the link to Games Workshop’s Warhammer Community:

Well that was a long break from website posts. I had to upgrade my website package to continue to use WordPress which cost me some hard earned cash!
OK, back to my sketchbook again. These are some ideas I had a year or so ago, when I heard that MaxFactory in Japan were partnering with GW to produce some push-fit Space Marines. I thought it might be cool to produce a couple of Samurai-themed Space Marines, that didn’t just look like Space Marine Samurai cosplayers. As the Mantis Warriors Chapter (ignore this bit if you’re not into Games Workshop) that sided with the Astral Claws in the Badab War (link below) had a slightly oriental theme I thought it would be fun if I sketched some Space Marines with some subtle Japanese Samurai themed elements.
Here I’ve taken the old rank designation symbols from way back (they used to be displayed on the forehead of the helmet) and changed it to reflect a Samurai’s helmet and also a bit like the head crest on a Gundam robot suit. They would be sculpted on the armour/miniature. I’ve also chosen to add some parts of older Marks of power armour to add a bit of a rugged Samurai look to their style. The power sword too is more like a katana and there’s a Shinobi/Ninja Space Marine scout which I think is a cool idea.

As a fan of Kev Walker’s art I really liked Daemonifuge and given that Games Workshop are going to produce Sisters of Battle in plastic I thought I’d sketch some ideas I had for the Adepta Sororitas. It could perhaps be for a short webcomic based on the exploits of a unit of Sisters of Battle.

Also there’s an idea for the Ordo Hereticus Penitent Engine which I always thought was very vulnerable to any incoming fire so I sketched an Iron Maiden version. Iron Maiden Wikipedia entry
I’ve roughed a thumbnail composition of an Ordo Xenos and Deathwatch kill team fighting the Necrons. More of this sort of thing soon!
This is all Games Workshop intellectual property, I’m just playing with it.
These pages are from my sketchbook started in 2013 of various things I was working on. Firstly I have some doodles and notes, some tinkering of my dimensional alchemist’s helmet/mask and an idea I had for a character for my second sunken world adventuring party. He’s an enemy of the Icthyss (fish-men) and their Thulhid overlords and has a fish-man skull, a weapon or two and scaled skin as trophies. The next page has some jolly Space Ork Freebooters as I felt like drawing them and some ideas for a race of smaller humanoids in the Sunken World. There’s also a fish-themed helmet for a sunken world bounty hunter.
Here we have my thief idea and more of the sea ranger/Icthyss hunter and then some ideas for a Thulhid’s experimental mutants and an elite armoured Icthyss.
