I'm a big fan of some of the Skaven models. The crew of the war engines, the lords, even the Stormvermin. being humanoid mutants, they fit the role of degenerate humans and they share a similar flavour with their dirty, experimental technology.
Warlord Spinetail arrived today, so I put the putty and scalpel to work. He's made up of all sorts of bits from all sorts of ranges and the claw is from an AT-43 model! See if you can guess them all.
My lack of posts can mean only one thing... I've been busy?
Yes, yes I have! In 10 days my Dark Mechanicum will be charged with defending Godhammer from all manner of invaders. While I do have an existing Ad-mech army, I'm not going to sit idly waiting for the event. A new event means new models for me and so I have walked a path wrought with many obstacles. A new codex, still being polished even now, has meant putting together an army list (or size) has been both exciting and fantastically difficult. I *think* I have settled on my final rosters, but I can never be sure what will change next.
Also on the desk at the moment are my Myrmidon Velites. I was very tempted to go full-on Greco warriors with these models, but that would be too far beyond the flavour of the rest of my Skitarii. While the force for March will be a 'loyal' army, I still want it to integrate with my Dark Mechanicum collection.
So, like the new blend of Skitarii, I'm toying with Renegade heads again. This time, I'm using more bits and a bit of sculpting.
With a major overhaul (read: complete re-write) of the Mechanicus codex, it's a little difficult to decide (or know) what my army will comprise come March.
Apart from Skitarii. Everyone has Skitarii!
Rather than re-work my older Skitarii, I fancied trying some new builds. I don't want to alienate new from old, but I do want something different.
The new-style Mechanicum is well into conception, although I have no new pictures to show you just yet. In fact, I still haven't taken any pictures of my Iron hands from last month. I will get on top of that soon.
Unless there are some major problems with the codex I aim to field a force of Airborne Mechanicum. The army will include 2 Iron Wyvern Gyrocopters, 1-2 Storm Ravens, Robots and whatever jump infantry are required to fill the gaps.
