A model a day – day 1 – Dark Mechanicum Menial

With just 45 days to go until the Age of the Emperor campaign I really need to get on top of my painting and focus my dendrites. As a challenge, I am setting myself the task of painting at least 1 model a day towards the goal of having my force completed. That then works out at 45 models.

Starting small, I’ve begun by painting up my first menial. Menials are the most lowly servants of the Mechanicum, charged with basic labours and are very expendible. They provide little more than a distracting horde in game, but can be joined by combat ogryns for a bit more punch.

The majority of my menials are built up from spare goblin musicians from the Skull Pass starter set, but with the release of the new Skaven models I had to take a scalpel to them!
