Well, after being out of the hobby for ages, I've decided to make the mistake of buying back in because I absolutely love the Admech models.

Comments and criticism always welcome.

So far I've finished about 100 points out of 2,000. I'm in for a long ride.

Rangers with Arquebus:


Vanguard:


Let me know what you think.

Those look great! I like the darker tones against the metallics. Excited to see more. Do you have any of those higgins-boat looking transports in the works? I'd love to see one in this paint-scheme.

I'm just happy the metallics look metallic, I'm always worried my NMM will end up too grey or yellow to look like metal at all.

I do have one of the boats, and I'll probably pick up another in a Start Collecting box, but it's on the back burner as I've picked up a stupid amount of stuff. My original list ran a good number of them, but with the points nerf I'll probably bench it in favor of other units.

That and right now I'm planning to finish a Dominus, Dunecrawler, and box of Kataphrons in order to show a completed old Start Collecting box with one set of Kataphrons as a Combat Patrol group. That way I can get a few games in and test my theory build that I've been advising to others as an option for starting out.

Dang. I didn't even notice that was NMM. That's some fine work.

I'm just happy it came out looking like what it's supposed to, so that's quite a good complement.

These look great, the NMM armour is particularly nice

Thanks, after having some time away from the models I've gotten to like it a lot more. I could probably do better on the Vanguard helms though, the one I'm working on now with the Plasma Culiver is one I'm excited about because I think the helmet came out very nicely. Should have it done by the weekend as I'm taking my time with it.

Thanks.

I'm working on a Plasma Vanguard right now that I'm really happy with how it's coming out so far. Should be up by the weekend.

Just finished up a Plasma Vanguard. Took a leisurely pace with this one, I think it came out ok but there's definitely things I can improve going forward. Pardon the lighting, the sun was not cooperating:

I like the purple,blue rippling effect on the plasma gun. Its a unique take and very cool.

+1 to this. I might even try to replicate it!

Also, +1 to the paint scheme, looks great, and is unique.

Thanks, I like how it came out as well. The purple and blue plasma is actually inspired by those plasma ball toys we saw as kids. You know, the one you plug in and it has the electricity on the inside a fish bowl that's a purple and blue color, and if you touch it moves to where you're touching it.

I'm working on a Dominus right now and I think it's coming out really well. I hope it looks as good as I think when it's done. It should be up next weekend.

It's pretty easy to make, it's only three colors. Vallejo purple 70.959, Flat Blue 70.962, White 70.951, I just did a base coat of blue, then did 2 sections of 1/4th in a blue-white mix, then a white highlight. Afterwards I filled in the other 2/4ths with purple, white-purple mix, and white.

I think for future versions I'll do a 1/3rd to give it a less chessboard look and more of a swirl.

Nice start of your army, love the dark color scheme, makes them look more sinister than the usual bright red robes. Excited to see the Kataphrons, they will look great in your scheme.

That's a really nice scheme, Techpriest_.

Thanks. I like having a sinister look, but I don't usually have a sinister made up lore to my faction. The general idea is that it's a faction of Admech that has no known forge world (although one may exist) but has a massive fleet that functions as a forge world, and functions as a mercenary force for others in exchange for tech and troops. Think of it as a sort of Rogue Trader Admech, as Rogue Traders are allowed to handle Xenos tech, as well as even the smallest of them having extensive riches and fleets.

Coincidentally the scheme is not completely unlike Triplex Phall which I think is my favorite of the forge worlds, simply because it doesn't care about being a obstinate, going as far as either refusing Mars or giving them STCs only for Mars to find out some critical component is missing in the information. Stygies aren't far behind either thanks to their Xenorites and other secrets.

The Kataphrons are close to the top of the list. I'm finishing up the Dominus now which I think looks fantastic so far, and then it's a Dunecrawler so that I can finish on of the start collecting boxes. After that it's at least one Kataphron box so I can present a Combat Patrol group picture, and I'm excited to paint Kataphrons.

My pile of shame is so far: 2x of each Start Collecting Box, 2x Raider Boxes, 2x Electro-Priest boxes, 3x Ironstriders, 4x Kataphron boxes, 1x Pteraxii boxes, 1x Kastelan boxes, 1x Archeoraptor boxes. I think I need more Kataphrons.

Thanks, I'm happy it's doing well. I have a lot of room for improvement but I like how it's coming out so far.
