As promised here's a painting guide for skeletons using the new Mantic figures.
This is the 20th figure that was missing from my previous post.Â Here's a shot of the front and back of the little chap and you'll see that he's quite nicely detailed, but not overly so for a rank and file figure.
Forgeworld have teased us with preview of 3 lovely new models for the Imperial Guard and Orks.
Fresh from the forge, I've painted up a customised Chimera to fit with the StuG shown previously. The dark red will be repeated across the tanks to help keep the army looking uniform on the battlefield as there's going to be plenty of unique traits to each individual vehicle.
The obvious difference to the model is the exposed tracks, which I'm drawing inspiration from World War I vehicles (though most real world tanks are like this!). I've reconstructed the top of the vehicle a little to put the turret towards the back of the vehicle and drop those ugly lasgun portholes.
It's possible Mantic has passed you by, if they have and you have an interest in 28mm fantasy wargaming then I suggest you check them out.
Very recently they launched their undead range and on Friday my skeleton and ghoul regiments turned up.Â I'm planning a couple more articles on these sets, so if what you see in this first post is of interest, make sure you come back.
So this is the box that I came home to on Friday.Â In size and feel its actually a lot like an old VHS video box!Â The overall look is very swish and as my wife said "I was quite impressed when I saw that".
Deadlines are fast approaching - the Age of the Emperor campaign is less than 80 days away and my army is in serious need of attention. Typically, I chose to start a new army from scratch and in this case, one that requires a lot more custom work than most - Dark Mechanicus.
Combining several aspects of the 40k (30k!) background, this force will be an amalgamation of Adeptus mechanicus, daemons, Â robots and heretics. Â As such, I am looking to make almost every model unique.
