So following from the discussion in my other thread, I went looking at various artwork on google and was seriously impressed by some of the concepts I found for various Ecclesiarchy characters. As a result I've decided to do an entire group of characters not just one
First up will be a Cardinal. I found several pictures that have inspired me, the general design will be similar to this one:
With a few elements inspired by these:
I'll want him to look quite old and venerable, but also to make him look proud and inspiring, as such I don't think I'll use any sort of face mask. He'll have some sort of shrine on his back and I intend to try and make him look like he's on some sort of life support system. He'll be essentially unarmed, but I intend to include several servo skulls for protection, as can be seen in several of the Ecclesiarchy images. A cherub may be also be included.
The second model will be a Missionary Hero, inspired primarily by these artworks:
I particularly like the first of those images, although it will be quite a busy model with all the books and pouches.
I'm also planning on sculpting an Adeptus Sororitas bodyguard although whether she'll be in full power armour or not is undecided (I'm leaning towards not at the moment, I feel that the power armour would be reserved for battlefield duties).
Other options are some sort of non-combatant preacher, perhaps something like this:
We'll see how things go. This project might be a bit too ambitious!
