This will be a small force of just 44 (the last surviving members of their chapter).

After a year of procrastination and farting about with the blog, I finally got around to painting a mini (well, a re-paint and a re-base of an old one - below - my old Daemon Prince with wings). It was the first time I'd picked up a paintbrush in over ten years. I've painted dozens more since but still have the old habit of not finishing them off before starting another.
Anima Mori - Necromancy CultThe first units for my next army - a 40K Undead army.
This is not a Nurgle or Tzeentch based one, but will be led by female necromancers from a matriarchal society / cult using the forbidden, ancient dark arts.....Anima Mori.....the name given to a class of technology that staves off death and reanimates the dead. This technology is forbidden within the Imperium by both the Adeptus Mechanicus and the Inquisition.
There are some great model ideas, such as corpse-thralls and warp-field generators from the black library literature. I'm also planning on some kind of Dark Mechanicum class who control these corpse-thralls and any other dark tech I can use alongside the typical undead Risen / zombie units.Apart from staving off death (those heretek models will be pale-skinned, black-eyed and rakish) I also like the reanimation ability too. I'm probably going to modify the skeletons so they look a little more 40kish, and use them as a summoning-like spell.
The people I play against are not sticklers for rules (in fact as RPGers they like making up their own scenarios) so I'm not bound by anything or by anyone else's imagination.
The bases are made from Sapele, which cuts much smoother than the oak I used for my Nurgle Cultists.
