I got a few hours tonight to paint the Servitors, Weapon Hounds & Techmagos.

These guys are incrediblely fun to paint. I love the diverse character of this Mechanicus contingent and painting them has been colorful next to the rest of the Grey Knights. These are not finished yet, I want multi-colored wiring, some cleanup, and details I skipped done before I do the bases.



^The group shot.



^Techmagi and weapon hounds.



^Multi-Melta Servitors



^Combat-fit Heavy Mining Servitors



^Plasma Cannon Servitors.

Wow! I'm impressed! They look very good and after the cleanup & bases, they will be magnificent! While the GW Servitors are cool, the ones YOU made are even better! They should make a plastic kit to make Servitors... a pair of tracks, some heads, few arms, lots of cables, claws, drills and arms... you know, so you get Kit Bashing crazy. Obviously this is a GREAT idea. Not only is mine, but you already showed that is possible (and fun!) to make kick ass Servitors.

Criticism? Besides that you are not sending ME some Servitors? Not much... careful on clean up! Ohhh and instead of using a paper towel as a background for pics, how about a white piece of paper from your printer? Just Kidding What can I say... I have nothing really important to criticize about your models!

Thanks for sharing!!!

I haven't been able to do much as far as painting goes recently and I had to change my 1500 Mechanicus list to be more competitive, which now it excells at.

I placed a most reasonable order for some FW models. I found the site in a fortune cookie, most reasonable and EXCELLENT quality.

Holy formaldehyde when I opened the box though! OMG all of this is getting a through washing before I do anything with it.

Here are some pics...







^LR doors.



^FW Goodies.



^80 secenic bases



^FW GK dred with Iconic GK weapons.

Yeah, I'm playing today and my buddy is bringing me some FW Inquisition doors. So I will have some more too. The bad part is just how hard it is to field a single land raider in most games, so it will look pretty but not see a lot of action.

I did get some painting in this weekend, painted up some purifiers, but they are just barely TT quality so I will post them with more paint later.

I am also organizing up my Thousand Sons. I have 30 Rubric Marines and I will be using all old school rhinos, preds, and dreadnoughts. By old school I mean RT. Very Happy

That will be another thread though. Expect some before pictures of them in another thread soon. I have a ton of work to do with those guys.

WOW! They look amazing! Love the doors!!! Can't wait to see the Landraider painted!


PS: For some ideas on paint, check out Komfritten's Grey Knights... he is using an airbrush too!

Storm Ravens?!?! Where the Warp those came from? I swear... every time you posts pics, I think your army is BIGGER! Can you play Apocalypse with your Grey Knights? HA!

The Grand Master is looking great! The weapon looks VERY good. The flesh (and I know is only a WiP) is the weakest... but I have faith in you. The mini-tutorial was awesome! Felt like being there... ALMOST made me want to paint! Just Kidding

Just kidding... I have been working on my Prisoner. Just Kidding

I'm doing a bit of work on the Storm Ravens. I want them with lots of holy bling. I've discovered that rhino side doors are the same size of the Storm Ravens, and my buddy is going to give me some FW inquisition rhino doors. I will be putting at least one FW door on each of the ravens.

These Ravens have had the front plate from an old school rhino cut to fit the front of the canopy and the imperial eagle just under the cockpit has been shaved off for the fitting of some brass etched bits.

What do you think so far?









Cheers!

Kom's work on his landraider got me to attack Ravens. I've been working on them tonight, and I just got done with the second color. All of this is with an air brush so far.

Wow... 2k!?!? This is VERY insane! The army looks so ... small... hehehe... but they are GK! The army as a whole looks very cohesive... great job.

I got in a 2k game versus my good friend Wolfgang. We played a annihilation scenario with pitched deployment, and despite my best attempts to steal the iniative; the Death Korps of Kreig got the first turn.

His army list was a lot of vetrans and storm troopers in Chimeras, 3 Vendettas, and 2 Dakka Leman Russ tanks with 3 heavy bolters and a TLAC.

I'm not going to do a full battle report for this one as it largely consisteded of an armor battle where infantry got decimated and tanks were able to weather the storm of fire from all but a few powerful guns, but the pictures are too pretty not to post. In the end the Guard were victorious taking the day with 1 more kil point than the GK. The dice were terrible on both sides of this one.





^Deployments



^Vendettas scout thier way along the refused flank and wrack up a Razorback and Drednought kill on turn 1.



Having escaped the destruction of their razorback transport, the Arbites dash though the runied building only to be chopped down by a Leman Russ's merciless firepower.

















^The GK advance upon the left flank as the Guard lets the longrange guns fire and fire and fire and....









The GK Storm Ravens arrive from reserve at the bottom of turn two and attempt to bring down the Death Korps aircraft.





^Guard Storm troopers grav chute in and find thier melta weaponry resisted by the cererimite hull of the Ravens.





^a lone Arbiter hugs cover as the building explodes from guard fire around him and his dead unit.







^Purifiers storm the ruins to kill a relelntless Leman Russ in cover.















^The Storm Ravens finally splash the Vendettas.





^The guard's storm of fire takes it's toll as space marine vehicles are brought to a grinding halt or blown to hell.









^The Storm Ravens have thier wings clipped as they have their weapons blown off and/or become unable to maneuver.





The game ends at the bottom of turn six by the roll of a die.

The game was competitve the whole while, but the GK trailed the whole game by a point or two. A fun game, if a bit frustrating when it came to doing significant damage to the guard tanks. Range issues plagued me as I had to approach the Guard to fire as well as a poor deployment choice. I should have pushed up midfield despite it's lack of hard cover.

I hope you enjoyed the eye candy. Cool
