Here’s the inked (on paper) and coloured (digitally) version. I created the runic language from looking at Tolkien’s Angerthas (Dwarvish) runes and making them look a bit more technical.
I’ve some more ideas for these and some other human variants; I just felt that this page needed some colour.
This is still fan-art and not meant to infringe on GW’s copyright.
I always liked the Squats (Space Dwarfs) in WH40K and felt they’ve been unjustly maligned over the years so here are some of my ideas for them. First are a couple of heads and a hero with bionic hand and power-hammer, also some ideas for their runic language (so not to be too Nordic but also retain the geometric nature). Then there is a tunnel fighting armoured warrior with an axe-boltgun and combat shield (that expands from his armour) and a ‘Living Ancestor’ psychic.
More on this soon! (Hopefully).

These are three of my ideas for the lower ranks of demons but higher up than the rank-and-file demon soldiers. https://www.willbeck.com/artblog?p=262
They’re essentially bulkier soldier demons with exaggerated proportions. The female demon on the right serves a different demon lord; hence the symbol on her armour and colour of its metal (the demon in the centre also serves another lord).
Again at this time of year I’m delving into the past! Here are some early sketches I did for the one-page comic last year. They’re Knights but from oriental and celtic/pagan cultures.
Also a preview of a set of demon concepts I’m working on. More later when I’ve finished them.
More of my Triton culture; here we have a triton whalephant herder, a whalephant (amphibious elephant/whale creature) and a couple of other examples of Sunken World fauna.
Some drawings of the ogre/dugong/manatee-like creatures from my Sunken World who I call Tritons. They’re amphibious and larger and bulkier than a human. Their culture is tribal but they’ve united against the Thulhid menace.
Skaven Rat King
I’d never heard of Rat Kings until I was looking for pictures of rats on t’internet (see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_king_%28folklore%29 ) and thought it would make an interesting idea for a Skaven mutant; a master moulder perhaps. I added some digital paint to this to flesh him out some more.

Here is the final design with some other troops sketched in to show his monstrous size. His evil gauntlet can magically slash and crush things from a distance or produce dark smoke to obscure the battlefield.
I’ve almost finished the first Demon Lord picture; here are some ideas I had for his weapons and a Demon Lady. More soon.
While I’m working on a concept design for a Demon Lord I thought I’d show some sketchbook pages on how I come up with a final image.
Before starting this project I wanted to establish a few ‘rules’ for my Demons – firstly not much hair or fur, secondly no hooves and lastly no lava!
The first doodle is from my sketchbook from 2005; a demon sketched in a matter of minutes.
I liked the look of his long angry face and a few years later I thought it would be ideal for the first Demon Lord; a huge brutal looking monster. These are some of my ideas from my A5 sketchbooks.
