so i've started doing a mechanicum army using the taghamata ommissiah army list. 

here's what i've finished so far.

the knights will belong to house lannister (from GoT) and they'll have the icongraphy added once i can get some transfers to work on them.

 

med_gallery_69_18_4295.jpg  med_gallery_69_18_529511.jpg med_gallery_69_18_742534.jpg

 

i've got a fourth knight (errant) build and awaiting undercoat once i can get round to it. 

 

the rest of the 'proper' army is a magos domius, whom will be replaced soon-ish by a tooled up archmagos prime.

my troops are a 9 man squad of thallax, which has three multi-meltas, two where converisons back when the thallax first came out, the third is one of the new FW ones.

my second troop choice is a squad of 3 castallax with mauler bolt cannons and flamers, i plan to add another two to finish the squad at the HH weekender.

in addition to this, I've got a krios battle tank and 20 adsecluaris tech thralls say on my painting table in various states of completion, and i'll add some pics of those in due cause.

Nice stuff. Well worn and oily, I really like how the main red has come through. 

 

Is the Knight with the weapons swapped the Kingslayer?

Will you build a knight with half-legs and an axe?

Will one of them have fresh paint and be a sadistic ass?

The mechanicum has sneakily become just about the coolest thing to emerge from the HH so far bar the primarchs themselves. The excitement for my book to arrive is palpable so I can begin scheming up mechanicum lists. 

 

I can't wait to see more of your force and they look good so far, particularly the magus dominus.

 

Also top notch job on the knights as well.

the one with the weapons swapped is jaime for now, however once FW start releasing their knight variants, the major characters will be getting upgraded. 
thinking of jaime having a lancer (better in CC) tyrion will have a shooty one, and tywin must have a baron class knight. 

won't make a half-knight for tyrion, as it would be far easier just to give him a booster seat for a normal one, thou I do like the idea for an axe.

There won't be a jeoffry one, as he's "techinally a barathareon" in name at least. and besides all i'd ever be doing to trying to get him killed.

Thanks, Sevatar.

The only problem with the mechanicum ATM is that half if it isn't out yet. 
Got my copy of extermination at FWOD and reading the new mechanicum list has produced nothing but evil villian laughs from me, so so many dirty combos and horrors; but to be fair your paying the cost for them (in points and money).

I particularly like your magos. What colours did you use on the snail helmet?

Yes. To all of this, yes. Especially the booster seat.

can't remember,as its been done bit by bit since the model came out. but I think it was something like warplock bronze, nuln oil, then that new oxide technical paint, with a drybrush of warplock over it all. with eartshade in places to break up any large mono-tone areas.

you could always make tywin out of one of the siege automatii (can't remember what they are called now).  Smaller than a knight but has a hell of a bite to him.

only had a single game with them so far, but i ballsed it up. forget half the mechanicum rules and extras, made some bad tactical descisions. but they did alright-ish. 

looking forward to giving the pure mechanicum force a proper run around. just need FW to release some of the awesome new units, and some bloody myrmidon weapon kits.

I know what you mean Im looking to expand my mechanicum ... But fw need to release more models, especially hq choices... The magos on its own is not really cutting it. Hopefully we will see some more models appear at the heresy event in a couple of weeks....

from what the designers were saying at the FWOD, it sounds like the HH weekender is going to be cloud 9 for pre-release/WIP mechanicum stuff.
I get paid the day before, and i'll still need more money.

Always great to see more Mechanicum! And they look really good too.

I get paid the day before, and i'll still need more money.

I know what I'm getting at the weekender then...

 

The only bad thing is that I just vowed over 3000 point of stuff for the Bolter and Chainsword painting challenge, so I need to get those done before playing with whatever new stuff they migh sell.

so i've finished my first krios battle tank (planning to take a full squadron of each type).

 

putting it together was a tad tricky at first (first attempt at a new design always is) but i think my 2nd and 3rd will be far far quicker.

also thought i'd share some WIPs for my 20man adsecularis covenant. got the basic metal work done, but need to do the none metal stuff, plus some details. so hoping to have it done within a few weeks (depends on if my purchases from the HH weekender don't distract me too much).

flash makes them seem a little cleaner than they are, so here a picture of what shade they actually are.
