For the term "dark mechanicum".

Skaven make the best Magi

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.

10 days until Godhammer 2

10 days until Godhammer

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.

Myrmidon Velites and Skitarii

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.

Looking back at the blog, this time last year I was counting down the final 2 weeks until the Path to Terra campaign weekend. I was desperately trying to finish painting (and building!) my Dark Mechanicum forces for their first outing, in part 3 of Age of the Emperor. Many late nights paid off as the army was nominated for the best army award, something that really keeps my motivation alive. So much, that I took them again in part 4 and was nominated again!

Porting a ridiculously over-themed army into a codex 8

Porting a ridiculously over-themed army into a codex

Alas! I am stuck with a new dilemma. After a year of toiling at my Dark mechanicum army, I find myself without a legal force to commit to the table. The army was built almost exclusively for the Tempus Fugitives events and may well see more action in that capacity, but now I face other challenges in the world of 40k and need a legitimate bunch of models to play with!

Age of the Emperor comes to a close 3

Age of the Emperor comes to a close

The fourth and final Age of the Emperor campaign weekend concluded this weekend, hosted by the Tempus Fugitives at Warhammer World.

Another enjoyable weekend of gaming, coupling highly themed armies with friendly opponents – The Great Scouring was another success.

Three members of The Great Crusade team were nominated for the best army award, my Dark Mechanicum included, with the winner being TGC’s Dargor himself! An impressive feat considering the army was painted in just one month!
