Mechanicus and Nighthaunt seem to compliment each other really well, but holy balls, these might be the coolest ones I've seen yet!

Thanks mcmattila, I was given inspiration by Mechanicus/Nighthaunt conversions I saw from others online. Lots of really great stuff out there, I appreciate your sentiments.

Here's my force leader, the archmagess in charge of this new band of horrors:






These pictures are a rough WIP. Top half is Lady Olynder, bottom half is the half of Belisarius Cawl that I didn't use when making my previous Archmagos.

I always really loved the "skeletal/undead imperial guard" armies people have made in the past, and wanted to put my own spin on it. Spooky alien science has transformed the dead of my imperial guard regiment into eternally-faithful warriors. Faithful to an absolutely heretical Mechanicus Archmagos.

It's an attempt to get at 'spooky' without defaulting to 'everything spooky is because of chaos', so these ones are because of crazy technology and genestealer DNA.

Wonderful work. Found the Dunecrawler Basilisk conversion on pinterest and was hunting the source since then to ask a simple question: Where's the top part (platform+gun) from? I'm converting an Imperial Guard with walkers only and I'd like to steal the idea ;-) Looks like resin, so probably FW?

The green color reminds me very much of the color from StarCraft 1. Always thought it looked best on Terran Marines, stompy iron machines and the no-nonsense armored aircraft. These are perfect.

The cannon is from a 3rd party company called Quantum Gothic: http://www.quantumgothicwars.com/tabletop-gaming-scenery/quantum-cannon. The casts were high quality.

I love the all walkers Guard idea, I've seen your Ansari Crawlers around myself. I like the conversion and the grey/orange scheme too.

You know, that must have been a subconscious part of my choosing the color. I really liked that color on the Terrans in starcraft myself. Glad it's working!

Thanks Viterbi, that is the style that I am going for. I'm glad it's working.

For a minor update, here is one of my (nearly) completed Iron Warrior tactical marines and his trusty Cultist comrade:

They're from the old Warzone game, sadly this tank is now out of production, I bought some when they were on last call.

Thanks Boss, I tried to reign in the, well, chaotic look of the Cultists and Chaos Marines with loyalist parts and a uniform cultist headswap.

Here's some of the Cultists after they went under the knife:


My Genestealer Cult's Kelermorph is coming along well, despite his recent 60 -> 75 point nerf:



My Iron Warriors' Forgefiend is also nearing completion:

I'm not sure if everything is out of production, but Prodos games who make them now, retired a fair number of kits some time within this last year.

Here's a Titan Mortar for my Warhammer Fantasy Chaos Dwarves/The 9th Age Infernal Dwarves, plus three armiger bodies which are to become my new set of Onager Dunecrawler upper-halves:



Inspired by some great conversions out there on the internet, and Games Workshop's own example conversion of an Armiger when they released rules for Renegade Knights.

Some Bretonnians for the Fantasy project now that the Infernal Dwarves are just about wrapped up:


And some WIP CAD design for 3d printing so I can have some new mechanicus vehicles that don't look like Higgins boats...

The base color is:
1. prime grey or paint dawnstone
2. wash black
3. wash black in a more targeted way
4. drybrush/stipple with the original base color (dawnstone) until it's nice and patchy
5. do the same thing with a shade brighter (celestra grey) to complete the final layer of roughing up.

Alright, the guys going onto the above posted bases:

Some test color schemes for the Steel Legion and one of a Stormtrooper. and then about 15 of the 30 Stormtrooper with Plasma Gun this army contains, most converted because getting those on eBay is.... well pretty bank-breaking.
