Its hard to see the paintjob for me, but it looks nice

Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless and perfunctory gift nobody ever asked for. Unreturnable because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down because there's nothing left to drink. Sure once in a while there's a peanut butter cup or a English toffee, but they're gone too fast and the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits of hardened jelly and teeth shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those all you've got left is a. An empty box, filled with useless brown paper wrappers.

I will add rocks and debris to some of my new models' bases.

Light Box Photos and 2 more Skitarii. Tried out OSL on their visors.

They look good- I especially like the blues on the weapons.

Try throwing a wash of either Nuln Oil (for a cleaner look, add back the metal color as a highlight, being careful to not get it in the recesses) or Agrax Earthshade for a rusty, deserty look. I think it'd add a good layer to them.

What I'm currently doing is washing all metal with Nuln Oil, then highlighting with Runefang Steel. Are the highlights too difficult to see?

Looks good except the red coats, it need some depth, may I suggest starting with dark flesh/ terra cotta, and the dark red, and work your way up to the red that you have.

for the finished one, maybe a wash of agrarian earth shade, then a red wash, once dry highlight the folds a bit.

For the red to add depth hit it with a (I'm using gw names because I only have gw for these specific items) thinned carrosburgh crimson wash then several coats of bloodletter glaze. Should really accentuate the folds & creases & give you that depth.

I will do that soon. I do not have those paints and will not be able to get them for a while.

I have added more shading to the robes, and will be able to post new pics soon.

You are smashing these out at a rate of knots Verv, well done. Any reason wht you have gone for a Ranger head on the Arquesbus Skitarii in the Vanguard unit?

What colours are you using on your Galvanic rifles?

The way I'm building them. Only 1 of each Special Weapon, so I'm building 3 kits, one with all plasma, one with all Arc, one with all Arquebus. 2 squads of Vanguard and 1 Ranger squad.
I will build each kit with 1 Arquebus Ranger and Arc and Plasma Vanguard. That way, when everything is done, I can shuffle them and be ready to game!

Very sensible way of doing it. I am a bit torn on the Vanguard and Rangers, I like the look of the Rangers better but the Vanguard are just far more effective in game terms.

Do you mind if I "borrow" your rifle recipe?

Right then. So I have nothing new to paint this weekend, sadly, but I suppose it's a good time to outline my plans for this blog.

I aim to paint, to the best of my abilities, every single possible AdMech model. I do I have a list I'm building to, which follows. Of course, unforseen Cult Mech stuff may pop up, in which case I'll add it to the list!

Tech-Priest Dominus

2x Vanguard Squads, 1 w/ 3x Arc, 1 w/ 3x Plasma
1x Ranger Squad w/ 3x Arquebus

2x Kastelan, 1x Datasmith, with TL Phosphor and Phosphor.

5x Infiltrators w/ FB/TG (Done!)
5x Ruststalkers w/ TR/CC/MSG

2x Sydonian Dragoons w/ Taser Lances

2x Onager Dunecrawler

Knight Crusader

This will take a very long time. Due to the fact that I can't get steady wages, I am expecting one new unit every 3 weeks, at best, unless I get unload some of my unused models or miraculously get decent work.

To make up for the slow progress, I'll be posting little short stories, or prayers to the Omnissiah every weekend, so if you like reading about religious cyborgs inbetween looking at painted models, go ahead!

Having absolutely nothing to do except paint or read on Dakka will do that

I have noticed I paint very quickly.

The short story for this weekend! Rehosting from my Dakka Fiction thread to here!
Spoiler:
From the weakness of the mind, Omnissiah save us...
The latest subject was strapped to the surgical slab before the robed Tech-Priest, the ancient machines that would turn this mere human into a superhuman laid out on a large, reinforced table next to the slab. The subject was covered in faint marks, invisible to a mere human eye, but to the Tech-Priest, it was blatant as sunlight. Instructions on where to cut, benedictions, and identifying marks. Satisfied that all of the information was correct, the Tech-Priest extended a whirring saw, and sliced open the top of the subject's head, exposing the brain. A small mechandendrite extended from the apparatus suspended over the slab, cutting though the emotional center of the brain and paralyzing the centers that allowed for rebellious thought. The entire emotional center was lifted clear, and the arm retracted. The Priest lifted one of the cold machines on the table, and manipulated it until it began to spit out a clear fiber. Another mechandendrite carefully moved the neural weaver into position, laying a fine network of artificial nerves that immediately fused with the biological brain tissue. Next, the Priest picked up a series of circular metal devices, and plugged them into the thin neural weave. With a small soldering iron, he fused the neural plugs with the weave.

From the lies of the Antipath, circuit perserve us...
Working quickly, he picked up a small chip, and plugged it into the largest neural plug. He laid it into the hole created by the removal of the Amygdala. A green light appeared on a status indicator. Several more of these devices were procured, each of different sizes and colors, and plugged into the neural plugs that studded the subject's remaining brain. When all of the plugs were filled, the appendages of the Tech-Priest retracted. They came back down a second later. Two bonesaws unceremoniously amputated both legs below the knee. In the hollow where the kneecaps once were, the Priest implanted two more, larger plugs. He screwed small cylinders into the side of the plugs and whispered a prayer. They lit up green.

From the rage of the Beast, iron protect us...
Two gleaming brass and steel legs easily slotted into the knee-plugs, their sculpted brass kneecaps obscuring the mechanical horror that lay beneath. The Priest experimentally stimulated the brain of the subject remotely, and the legs moved, as if swimming in air.
The chest was opened by another silver saw, and the lungs removed. They were replaced by a single, complicated-looking apparatus with pipes that connected to the esophagus and to the subject's back. A metal plate was welded in place over the ribs to protect the vital organs. Another tube was extended from the stomach to the rear of the upper espohagus, creating a capped hole in the back of the neck. Satisfied, the Priest extended yet another mechandendrite, and fused the ribs and skin back together, sealing the chest.


From the temptations of the Fleshlord, silica cleanse us...
The Priest moved his attentions downward. The genitals were removed with a swish of scalpel, and replaced with an atmospheric sampling array. Moving upward again, the eyelids were also excised with the shining scalpel, and goggle-like augmetics fused to the face in their place. The Priest removed the tear-glands with a miniscule mechandendrite, and the darting apparatus above implanted two tanks filled with holy unguents and oils instead. With a quiet gurgling sound, the goggles filled up. An almost inaudible moan escaped from the subject on the table. The apparatus above picked up a curved metal plate, carefully aligned with with the missing upper skull, and fused it to the bone. A tiny antenna extended from a hole in the side.

From the ravages of the Destroyer, anima shield us...
The Priest began to chant in both Lingua-Technis and High Gothic, sprinkling holy oils over the new outer augmetics and armor-plugs.
"What was flesh is now made one with the Omnissiah. Mortal being, tested by the Machine-God, becoming new again, is becoming one with the Holy Machine. May the Omnissiah process your data, and the galaxy tremble before your metallic footfalls."

Machine God set us free...
With a mental push, the chains on the slab lifted, and the subject awoken by a shot of adrenaline, ready to walk off to the chambers where he would be equipped and armored. The Tech-Priest raised a dataslate, and quickly typed the new Skitarius' designation.

Julius-Beta-11.

Omnissiah...

Nice bit of fiction there Verviedi.

I'm hoping to get my last boxes of skitarii tomorrow. Should bring me up to 3 boxes of the rangers/vanguard and 4 boxes of infiltrators/rust stalkers. At that point, nothing left to do but start painting like a madman.

Right behind you.

Cut a tiny piece of sprue, and glue it on the interior of part #63.
Take a pin vice, drill a tiny hole and mount a paper clip into the hole.

Drill a matching hole into piece # 89.

You can then mount/dismount the "cabin" of the Onager for easier transport/storage.
