Mechanicum – A new frontier

Posted: July 26, 2016 in Horus Heresy, Mechanicum

Hey everyone,

I hope things are well wherever you are.  I’ve been on a mid-year break, and during that time I decided to do up some Mechanicum.  I doubt these will be a stand-alone force, just simply reinforcements, to add to the Xth Legion.  I have to admit, I really enjoyed painting this small force.  Super impressive models from Forge World.  Speaking of the Xth Legion, I’ve painted up some Legionnaire reinforcements for them too.  However, they’ll be the subject of another post you’ll see in the next day or so.

A few quick comments on what you’re about to look at.  Firstly, the Castellax.  Those of you familiar with the models will notice that their arm weapons are missing.  This is because I magnetised them, and forgot to connect them for the photo shoot.

Secondly, the Thallax. I went to the lengths to buy up all of the various special weapon options for this unit and magnetise them too.  So the plasma gun shown is not a permanent fixture.  Should give me plenty of options depending on the threat.

Finally, the Domitar.  These are seriously cool models.  Just get some.

Well, lets face it, the whole Mechanicum range is… so just get some.

Cheers

    Some stunning painting there. I like how FW have managed to capture a touch of the old RT designs.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

      Thanks Pete. I agree, it’s a little bit shocking to think how far ahead the designers were back in the RT days. FW draw so much from that art work/minis, but now just improve the technical aspects of the design

    An awesome compliment to the Iron Hands army you created. Imagine the fun lists available with the collection. Nice mate.
