Time to add (another!) P&M plog!! My (supercrazykoreanfast) latest order from Orctown (the ONLY shop over here that caters for GW plastic crack) arrived at lunchtime today. Living here 10 years and I still can't get over how fast companies deliver. I ordered Thursday night on the shop's website and the box of goodies arrived just after lunchtime today (Sat). Now that's some quality service! Anyways - loving all the new AdMech stuff that GW has been putting out and been wanting to get all painty painty on some of it so bought the Sydonian Dragoon a few weeks ago (still havent gotten around to that yet ) and ordered up some more stuff as well. Will be getting more along the line but for now I have a ton to be getting on with. This lot doesnt really (at all) fit in either of the 2 other plogs I'm doing so....new plog it must be!!

Am thinking of making up my own ForgeWorld for the AdMech stuff and painting the Knight as a Freeblade - more Imp than AM but still linked to said Forge World. Will make some nice juicy fluff up for the lot along the way of course

I feel like this blog needs a movie trailer-style voiceover:

"First, he did Chaos and Dark Angels, and it was epic... *bzzzzmmmm* Then, he did Eldar, and it was even better... Now... *bzzzmmmmm* He's doing fething AdMech... Prepare for awesomeness!"

Can't wait to see what you do with this stuff!

Good stuff! This new Knight kit with all the weapons is certainly a very versatile chunk of plastic; if I a) didn't have a Dreamforge Leviathan and b) had a bigger budget right now, I'd be very tempted by one! Have you magnetised the face masks as well?

Cheers for the challenge plug; things are insanely close with two days left, there's easily half a dozen entries still fighting for the top three spots! There's about 16 votes out of 300+ covering the top six or seven last I checked, which tells you all you need to know about the quality on show!

On another note, I can't help but think that Wraithlord needs a diorama base! Any plans for that?

nice progress mate! i've been eyeing the GW Admech but ... can't really afford it now. Plus, i went with a preheresy army, so now any mechanicus should be from forgeworld i guess .

but at the moment i'm not playing, just painting - though i want to get started on the rules.
so probable a small GW army won't be off the books, i absolutely love the Dominus tech priest + the Electro Priests, so i'll be watching this one closely.

good luck with all the metals !

Just throwing up a few snaps of the magnets I used. Little ickle 3mm babies for mask and top carapace weapons, 6mm for the arm weapons and monster 15mm specials for the main body to legs connection. The 15mm have a concave hollow on one side which is perfect for allowing the pillar on top of the pelvis joint to fit snugly into place.

Hey, looking good so far, I've been thinking about getting one of these new knights but keep putting it off. I am sure in your hands it will turn out great. I like the way you are going with the heraldry, how about a couple of lightning bolts coming out of the bottom of the helmet?

really REALLY rec/mnd you get one CB - one of the best kits around. For hte amount of work and hobbying that goes into it - bloody great value imho. the lightning bolts are actually going to be part of his brother's heraldry who fell to Chaos but don't want to give too much away yet

Cheers Redflex. Now that I've finished doing The Chosen diorama for Para's monthly comp - next up is some admech and freeblade action. Got a nice dark moody scheme planned for the Dragoon that's been waiting patiently and time to tackle that Freeblade too - stay tuned

Finally got a decent start made on my dragoon from the forge world of Achlys III. Going for a nice dark scheme to echo its being a planet almost constantly in twilight.

Dragoon is coming along nicely. Blue tinted steel isn't showing up as well as it is in the photo but hey ho really happy with the scheme. Nice and dark and grimy. None of that bright clean stuff I've never really been convinced quite fits the admech. Need to highlight the brass a touch and add more shades to increase the depth. Then some grime and weathering. C&c always welcome

Cheers Para. There'll be a blue glow coming out of the bit under the exhaust as well. The rider's coat will the same grey as the armour plates on the outside and then a lining will be a dark blue to echo the blued steel....which doesnt bloody show in the wip photo >< Defintiely gonna pick up a box of sicarans this weekend

Loads done this weekend ......ahem......~ish....... Ahem. Lol
Dragoon is nearly done. Got the main machine based up and just needs the weathering. Rider is nearly ready too. Happy with the base. Went for a kinda dark dry scorched earth job. Will tie in with the fluff for the forgeworld I made up (Achlys Tertius) which will in turn tie in with the the backstory for the knight that I'm (sloooowly) working on. Anyways - here's a wee WiP.
