Mechanicum – Reinforcement

Posted: March 21, 2017 in Mechanicum

Welcome back!

Life has been super busy recently and I’ve not had the chance to post up some completed projects.  Currently, I’m sitting in a tax law lecture, so I thought: “what a great opportunity to do a post! #procrastination

These Vultarax are very impressive models.  Now that FW is using (presumably) CAD and 3D printing to design and prove its originals, the quality of the cast, and sophistication of the designs has increased exponentially.  The detail is smooth and crisp and the kits go together well – added bonus: the instructions make sense.  I wish I’d replaced the hokey flight stands with clear rod.  I’d run out by this stage though.  

The Mechanicum’s answer to a Landraider.  I magnetised the pintle weapon (shown).  I would have liked the tracks to be seperate to the hull.  I think if FW were willing, this could have been done and would have enhanced the model significantly.  However, I suspect that their experience with the Spartan and related hulls informed the decision to make these one mould with the hull.  

Mechanicum marsupials?  

Classic random Enginseer from the GW Imperial Guard range circa 3rd ed.  Just a lovely model, it’ll be some random magos.  Ok, I’d better concentrate now

Thanks for dropping in

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.
