So I came up with the idea of making them a steampunk successor chapter to the Iron Hands. Over the months this idea morphed into just making an Adeptus Mechanicus army. Fluff-wise I call them Praetorians, although my Praetorians are more about heavy armour & cybernetics rather than the more common gene-bred Ogyrnesque creatures.
Anyway. Enough chat, have some pictures! All these photos link to their bigger versions on Flickr. For more, go to my blog http://admech.blogspot.com/ or my Flickr http://www.flickr.co...57624191172526/
This last photo shows how I made the models: they're Space Marine torsoes with all iconography removed, then with added Westwind Productions Wierd World War II gasmask heads and lots of Green Stuff!
Rules-wise they could count as Space Marines, Space Wolves, Chaos Space Marines, Witch Hunters, Necrons... Whatever I feel like, really! So far I've just been using them as Space Wolves, but I'm looking to try out some other stuff.
The army is currently around 1,500 pts- not all of it is displayed here, but I've got a Techno-Magi Lord (normally my Rune Priest), two Techpriests (Iron Priests) plus their servitors, 4 Praetorian Defender squads (Grey Wolves) and 3 Praetorian Support squads (Long Fangs). I'm currently putting the finishing touches on a converted a Praetorian Assault squad (Blood Claws / Wolf Guard), and an Avatar of the Machine God converted from Nightbringer (possibly to use as a Thunderwolf Lord? Or as a Daemon Prince in CSM?)
I'm not really very good at the whole gaming side, but you can read battle reports and army lists and so on at http://admech.blogspot.com/
