I’ve finished painting up the Thanatar for my Mechanicum army. The model is just beautiful and one of my favourite I’ve ever built. I haven’t played a game of 30k yet but it also looks pretty beastly rules while as well.
I loved it. Pretty familiar, but we tried out one of the new missions using the tactical objectives. Absolutely great. Really made the game more interesting than kill each other or contest last minute and hope the game ends. I took a combined arms list of Lamenters primary with Sons of Medusa allies plus an Imperial Knight. Mephiston was a beat stick getting off Iron Arm plus Warp Speed almost every turn. Strength and Toughness 9, with 8 initiative 10 attacks! He would mow through whatever came near him.
We did play a bunch of stuff wrong I’m sure, but I’m feeling really positive about the addition as long as you have a nice conversation before hand on what kind of game you want to play.
So I’ve made a lot of progress on my Imperial Knight. What an amazing model! Still tons of work to do. So many details and you get lost on the model painting it. Everything is blue-tacked together at this point to make it easier to paint in pieces. Hopefully over the next few weeks I can get it finished.
Scratch-built and painted up a Magos as the first part of my Mechanicus allies. No idea what I’m going to use for rules, but mostly I just look forward to building and painting the models. It’s body is built from a Vampire Counts: Cairn Wraith and the mechandrites are all made out of green-stuff and I used the Tentacle Maker from Green Stuff Industries.
I’ve finished my Contemptor Dreadnought! The model is absolutely gorgeous and goes together really well. I might add some weathering and battle damage later down the line, but I’m really pleased with it so far. I wish all of the dreadnoughts in the game were this size as they are a lot more imposing.
Made a little progress on the Sons of Medusa. I painted up a Dreadnought. I’ll be adding a Venerable and Contemptor Dreadnought to the army to keep with the theme of the Sons of Medusa. I’m having trouble concentrating on the marines though as I recently acquired about 5000 point of Ogre Kingdoms and quite frankly am enjoying playing Fantasy more than 40k right now.
