New Skitarii experiments

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.

First up, I got hold of Ramshackle’s Fire Support Troopers. They’re very cheap, so a great source for a horde-force. I decided to switch their heads for something a little more wired.



The models are quite nice, but the proportions of the lower half are a bit off.  You get a LOT of weapon ends to attach to the gun body, but I decided to use lasgun tips, as I have plenty spare from my Chimeras.

As for colour, I’m still deciding. I definitely want black armour and orange, eerie lighting for this iteration.

    Very cool! I hear ya about the sweeping changes to the Ad Mech codex. I’m optimistic the final product will be quality, but it does make it hard to plan army-wise.

    I love Ramshackle Games – just finished up a set of mechanized rough riders based on their bikes, and their Boring Machines make great Termites.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing what you come up with, keep up the great work!

    Great idea, I’m trying not to think about how much all of this is costing me :S
    Might look into the models available at Ramshackle, how tall are they compared to standard guard?
