The castWe had our first meeting of the campaign to drool over each other's models and discuss the scenarios and fluff guidelines for the first weeks of the campaign. So, without much further ado, here you have the cast.
The Disciples of the Black, by David WhitworthThe Disciples worship the Black as a life giver. It runs the machines, it is neither good nor evil to them, just life. The Rustmen are one incarnation of Its Spirit as are the ancient fallen God Machines. They see it as their sacred duty to protect the Black.
The Slipgibbets, by Saul PainterDesert dwelling mutants: murderous, criminal and sneaky. From the Broken Mountains to Endcliff, across the desolate expanse of The Barrens past Windgrip, Malady and False Hope, the Slipgibbets scavenge the desert and battle with rival gangs. Always willing to stab an enemy in the back (or a friend, if needs be!). They are spiteful, treacherous gits.
The Stash Riders, by Robert ArcangeliA band of tech gangers that may not be human… They rag it around the Tor Megiddo Wastes in the Stash Wagon, looking for different and exciting substances to ingest.
The PurebredFollowers of the cunning Keeper of the Flesh, brutes obsessed with eradicating the taint of mutation from their tribe.
The Rustmen, by Saul PaintersThe sacred metal creature from the myths of old, thaught lost since the Long Dark. Feared and revered in equal measure by the Yaike Yaike, they have been seen in increasing numbers since the Promethan Tower was destroyed, their strange behaviours both mistery and omen.
Another gang, the Ashtown Wasters by Ade Roberts, will also join the fight, but were not fully ready to have their picture taken.
I've also completed some more terrain, although not everything that I planned. I've added a second shanty, built exactly as the previous one. Here you can see the supporting structure made of sprue parts and a section of movement tray.
This time I decided to keep the colours of the walls and tarpaulin more distinct, hence the yellow canvas.
I've also repainted some tank traps and a truck I had made for my Astra Militarum/Chaos Cult detachment.
The truck will, most of the times, serve as a terrain piece, but it is ready to be pressed into service for 'The Caravan' scenario.
The last thing I needed to do, was to give names and a bit of background to each member of the Purebred. Here they are.
Great Father Arun, the Warleader
Warfather Dez & Snapper
Larg, the Tribesman
Yash, the Blemished
Eshelon, the Rider
Kurk, the Blemished
Mahela, the Keeper of the Flesh
