well usually after adepticon i don't touch a paint brush for weeks, but some reason (probably all the amazing models and armies that were displayed there) i still have some inspiration. One of the 'themes' that has always intrigued me was the Mechanicus (even though i did not see any armies like this this year) Especially after reading Dark Mechanicus and Titanicus. After many a google search and seeing other peoples conversion ideas, one in particular caught my attention for the basic mechanicus troop (Skitarii). So without further ado... here is my first attempt at a conversion. Basically all it so far, is an older metal scout, with some green stuff added. Will probably add some guitar string wires that go out of the head and straight to the gun.. something like an advanced targeting array or something. but for now here are my first blurry pictures..
Please forgive the shoulder pad cog... it looks quite silly right now, but I am working on a greenstuff mold/stamp that i will be able to mass produce the shoulder pad cogs/skulls.
Anyhow, late for work once again, so its time for me to head out!
ps.. I have also have 8 Crimson Fist honor guard that are near completion, will be posting more blurry pictures soon!
