After mulling over different things, watching game of thrones, googling heraldry from the Middle Ages, I came up with the idea of doing something with ravens and bloody eyes. I quick sketch in my notebook here:
And my idea was born -- The Kabal of the Bleedin' Eye. Wonky Eyes for short. Pink-eyes to those who would belittle them.
After that sketch, I went about combing the internet for more ideas. I found this:
Here I like how the eyeball is hanging and bleedin' but the crow's head needs some work.
The theme will be repeated across the army on banners, vehicle sidings and so on. I think I might even do some alternate heraldry - humans heads with bleeding eye-sockets. Something like the Bolton heraldry of the flayed man from Game of Thrones.
Here's a group of Kabalites I've been working on in the evenings. Lots sloppiness on some of the models, especially the glow effect. For rank and file troopers though, I'm pretty proud of them .
|13 models at once. No task to be taken lightly.|
|Heavy gear for a spindly elf.|
|This model really makes me wanna do a fire team of Trueborn snipers with Dark lances.|
The plan is to get these bleedin' eyes done and move to some reavers. I expect that the color scheme will look great on the bikes. Then I've got to convert a flesh-moulder. What do you think so far?
