New Year, new blog. A relaunch at least.
Motivated by all kinds of warm, yet still vague feelings about new beginnings, I’m determined that 2018 will be the year when I take my hobby up a notch. New models, better painting, hopefully more adventurous and experimental. An urge to produce something which is uniquely mine, but still pays homage to the decades of creativity and artistry which birthed Warhammer 40,000.
So, here is a “what if” to ponder …
What if a small pocket of realspace was cut off from the wider galaxy by a warp storm which has raged for thousands of years? What if the rulers of the worlds therein controlled the only safe passage to and from that realm, but what if they kept its existence a secret only they knew? What if these rulers were not beneficent caretakers, but would be considered heretics or even traitors by the Imperium of Man?
Now imagine these rulers having created a society based on a lie. With communication with the larger galaxy impossible, they could feed the population any information they wished, make them believe anything they wanted them to believe.
What might that society be like? What lies might they have been told and what factions could emerge to support or challenge the constructed status quo?
I’ll be continuing to share my modelling and painting on Instagram and my thoughts, background musings and ponderings here.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
