Necromundian inspiration.

As I am currently hyped for the new Necromunda game I thought I would have a look online for inspiration, after searching for the usual Mad Max stuff and general Post Apocalyptic pictures I remembered the Grounders from a show called The 100.  

Another source of inspiration is the film Doomsday.

Liberate Tutemet Ex Inferis

New year, new projects.

Due to the current direction Games Workshop is taking with the story advancement in 40k I have decided to take a step back and see how it all pans out in the end. With the rumors of Super Marines 2.0, and the current Marine range not getting supported as much I am a bit reluctant to part with my money until I know what is actually happening.
In the meantime I will be focusing more on =][=nquisigorkamundaheim and pushing my painting, not gonna get any better if I don't try and all that.

At the moment I am trying to flesh out the background for the planet I intend on using as the setting for a campaign. I must admit I have been influenced by a number of things when I have been writing down ideas, I thought the story behind the Arkke board (by the insanely talented Neil101 if memory serves me correctly) was a stroke of genius, and the old Ragnar Blackmane novel where he ends up running around with the 13th company (cant remember the name and I don't have the book handy) on the 'Shadow planet' in the warp are two of the things that gave me the idea.

Lifting the idea of the shadow planet, and the Arkke crossing through planets in the warp causing all sorts of problems and leaving behind gateways to the ship I thought to myself 'What happens when a planet somehow merges with its shadow self?' Obviously everyone will be royally screwed, but what if it was only merged for a short time? Just enough for it to be altered into a weird Mordheim in space kinda thing?

Well that's the core idea anyway, I have written some very short story's just for a laugh over on Bolter and Chainsword, very badly written I do admit, eventually I will expand some of them and get them written properly and maybe post them.

As I usually post some random crap about films I thought I'd post some music instead.
I'm not entirely sure why I love this track so much but I cant stop playing it.

The track is by a band called 'An Autumn for Crippled Children' and it is called 'Sepia Mountains for Her Lament'.

May as well share another, this one is called 'Avoiding Winter'

Another post about films.

Just a few more films that I enjoy, not sure why anyone would be bothered but I thought I would share some pointless information about my interests.

First up we have the classic Fearless Vampire Killers

The Fearless Vampire Killers, or Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are in My Neck is a 1967 horror comedy film directed by Roman Polanski, written by GĂ©rard Brach and Polanski, produced by Gene Gutowski and co-starring Polanski with future wife Sharon Tate.

A noted professor and his dim-witted apprentice fall prey to their inquiring vampires, while on the trail of the ominous damsel in distress.


I first saw this in my late teens when I was going through my 'Hammer Horror' phase, I loved the humor, I loved the music and of course I loved the amazing Sharon Tate. 

Next we have another Roman Polanski classic, Rosemary's Baby.

Mia Farrow is adorable in this film, she looks like a Pixie when her hair is cut short.

Finally, I'd like to finish off with a more modern release, Lords of Salem.

Not much I can say about this other than watch it if you have not done so already.

Dellamorte Dellamore - Cemetery Man

Sat here on this dark misty winter night (seriously, it looks like Silent Hill outside) looking out my window in the vague direction of where the church should be, and my mind wanders to images of hunched over shapes moving through the darkness.
I then imagine what it would be like for the character of Francesco Dellamorte in the 1994 movie Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man).

''Something is causing the dead to rise from their graves as flesh-eating zombies, and cemetery custodian Francesco Dellamorte (Rupert Everett) grows tired of killing them all for the second time. However, the town politicians won't listen to him, so Francesco is on his own. One day, he falls for a beautiful woman (Anna Falchi) whose husband has recently died -- but their affair is tragically interrupted by zombies, sending Francesco into a tailspin of madness and woe.''

Here is a trailer for a little taster for those interested.

Now I am imagining a dark cemetery in the depths of the Underhive, a thick mist comes in from the sump sea and settles over the old and rundown graveyard. inside a rusted old shack the Warden and his simple minded companion ready themselves as the moans of the dead echo in the night. 

Here is the full movie for those who liked the trailer.

First post. Wooo!

Welcome to the dark corner of the web that will be my Blog.
At the moment I'm unsure what exactly I aim to achieve here, I guess one way of looking at it is as a series of small snapshots of what goes on in my head over time.

For my first post I think I will share a few things that I find interesting, just a few images and maybe some music depending on how I feel by the time I am ready to post this in the interwebs.

These were saved on my hard drive from a few years ago so I cant credit the artists for the work. 

Finally a bit of music I like.
