Well I haven’t updated this site for months, so here’s an image I created as part of a job application for a Games Workshop Specialist Games Digital Illustrator a couple of years ago. I didn’t get the job.
He’s a sinister Delaque ganger, from the House of Shadows, I read a bit about them online to better get a sense of their new iteration (even more sneaky and slightly psychic). As Delaques have snakes and a stiletto dagger as their logo I thought a sickly turquoise colour for his gear would be appropriate to suggest poisoned flesh.
I’ve modified the miniatures logo (based on Jes Goodwin’s original sketch from the 1995 boxed game) to a stylised snake skull. I gave him a slash tattoo to signify his preferred method of fighting and made sure his bionic eyes looked like the operation to remove them was quite brutal.
Here’s the sketchbook page where I pencilled him first:
I enjoyed creating him; I started with a pencil drawing then digitally painted over that in Photoshop with a bit of Painter to finish off, as I have more experience in using Painter.

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.
