Finally finished up my first painted character. Really pleased with how she turned out in the end. Just needs a name now.

Up next, my kastelans.

C&C very welcome.

Lovely work, the yellow works fantastically on her. A seem less conversion too. As for names, she has a bit of a Morticia Addams vibe to her. Not sure how to grim dark that up though

Thanks! I like the Morticia Addams idea. Mortix Clardek - 941 or some such maybe.

Thankee kindly both, I always think my painting is fairly rubbish but I keep trucking along, it's nice to know it's not terrible.

Just been undercoating my dakkabots so will get some shots of them up soon.

Cheers

Just caught up with all of your posts, what a wonderful start to your project, loving the colour scheme of yellows and purples, and I like the bits of fluff you are starting to drop in as well. I second the above comments about the GSC Magos conversion, cracking work.

Thanks Flapjack, I was really worried about the bases at first, I thought maybe double yellow would look weird but I think it's different enough from the robes to stand out.

Thanks Scoundrel! Yeah I need to add more fluff because I really enjoy it.


Just some quick updates on my skorpius dunerider conversion. A project which I almost immediately regretted! Fiddling about with the tracks was a huge time consuming thing. But hopefully the end result is still okay. Would love some feedback, see what people think.








Will start painting that after I've built my other kastalen.

Cheers!

I love the look of your adeptus Mechanicus so far, it's nice to see non-red schemes.
As for your dune rider, the concept is awesome but I think your first thought of the tracks being too big is right.
In my opinion, the round bit not overhanging the tracks makes it look like the tracks are ballooning out cartoon style.
Maybe just shift the tracks closer to the centre line?

Looking good! It does look a bit big, but it fits right in with the Imperium's urge to overcompensate!

Thanks Guardling! Yeah the reason it looks like that is it is based on this Italian WW1 tank - the Fiat 2000.



Unfortunately it came out too late in the war to be any use but it looks absurd enough to be 40k.

Thanks, I'm hoping it looks far better when painted!

Waaaaargghhhh!! Dakka dakka dakka! I mean.. ahem... Praise the Omnissiah!

The first of my kastalens has stomped and clanked out of the weapons vault. The correct binaric hymns have been sung and the WD40000 has been successfully applied.

I went for a reversal of my yellow scheme to really accentuate that the kastalens are ancient creations and clearly different to the rest of my force. I also really like the Soviet cosmonaut vibe these models have and I thought that the green and red would bring that to the fore.

I have been reinspired by a reddit post that my ambots wouldn't look too bad next to the kastalens, I can always mount them on a bit of cork to add height and I'll add the flamers from the other kit to make them the other version.


Let me know what you guys think!
