The Bio-Pilgrymme, Part I: The Daerwynne Palimpsest and Lost Mechanicvm


The Bio-Pilgrymme...

The God Emperor...

The Green Man Cometh!


On January 1st 2016 a massive undertaking was launched over at Iron Sleet:

A collaborative exploration of Terra itself in which I take part with a host of Lost Mechanicvm and a team of Bio-Explorers...

First up from me is the Arch Magos Biologis Sverre Arrhernius - the Bio-Pilgrymme - and a small handful of his most loyal Sicarian Thorn Guards!

To get the full story behind the Lost Mechanicvm, Crataegus Fragmentum, The Prigorian Divide (known simply as the The Rift), Rogue Traders, Brostten Haggwers and the Daerwynne Palimpsest I urge you to visit Iron Sleet (via the links above). Make sure to check back often and see all the other madness going on there during the spring and summer of 2016.

Here I will just quickly add to what is being said on Iron Sleet that my work on the Lost Mechanicvm is a thorough exploration of 'uncanny doublings and weird morphologies' in the weathered worlds of 40K in the 42nd Millennium. 

Close to my muse: 

Inspired by my work on forests at AAA, forest myths, Johns wickedly fine Voodoo-stuff, an incredible sketch by the ever talented Jakob Rune Nielsen (watch this space!!), Johan Egerkrans idea of Thorn Moons, holloways and a lot more! 

Next up are wips of a special pair of Lost Mechanicvm and the first few of Brostten Haggwers Bio-Explorers!
