Last night I finished a few new units for my Adeptus Mechanicus army. Above you can see some Knights Warden (more french chevaliers) that have been blocking my painting queue for far too long: the gun barrels on the arms were extremely fragile in resin, so I decided to replace them with new ones made from plastic tubing and brass rod. Because that was an awkward and fiddly job, they went straight into the “To Do” drawer, which has stopped me from painting any more Knights for probably a couple of years! So it’s good to be able to finish them.
Below, you will also see another company of Stormblades, and a Heavy Artillery Company of Basilisks.
Here is the magnetised Reaver that I showed a video of in my last post. You will not that its colour scheme doesn’t match my other titans: this is because I have decided to build a new legion; because of the increased interest in Epic in my local area, I’ve been playing more titan-versus-titan intro games, and I want to have two different legions for these games.
The colour scheme is an old one: I had a few titans painted in this colour scheme many years ago, but repainted them as Legio Pantera (something I now regret!).
I’m currently working on some Warhounds to go with the Reaver, and then a Warlord or two thereafter. I’m planning on magnetising them all!
Here is my company of Assault infantry for my Epic Adeptus Mechanicus/Tech Guard army. Yes, they have jump packs! Imperial Guard Assault infantry were equipped with jump packs back in the days of Rogue Trader (they also had access to Rhinos, Land Raiders and other stuff that are nowadays reserved for Space Marines).
These troops will be deployed using either Gorgon assault carriers or Valkyries, depending on the mission. Those will be the subject of a future post.
Here is the Light Artillery Company for my Adeptus Mechanicus army. The NetEpic rules say that these units contain both Thudd Guns and Mole Mortars, but mine is just Thudd Guns. The artillery pieces themselves are from the now-defunct Exodus Wars range, the infantry models are forumware.
Here is my kitbashed Ordinatus Armageddon, which has been sitting in my to-do pile for several years. I rebased it (on three Flames of War bases glued together) to match the Orginatus Golgotha and the Capitol Imperialis.
Back in January I mentioned that I was painting a company of Stormblades and said I’d post when I’d finished them. Somehow that post never materialised, but since I’ve just rebased these models onto Flames of War bases (which are perfect for Epic models) I thought I’d fulfil my promise.
These super-heavies will (along with the Ordinatus Golgotha) provide the backbone of armour for the Skitarii force which supports my knights and titans. I have a Leman Russ Tank Company and a Skitarii Mechanised Infantry Company also in the works, and the colour scheme on the Stormblades will be replicated on the Leman Russ tanks and Chimeras of the mechanised infantry company. These models will also be based on Flames of War bases.
