Thank you so much!

 

 

Do you have any plans for entering this year's ETL (representing the Age of Darkness, naturally)?

Yes I will take part and I promise to don't pledge crazy stuff like Titans I never finish. I learned from my mistakes..

 

Poom. Your Work is Awesom thumbsup.gif

Haha the Inquisition came along. Cheers fellow Kraut!

That last picture really gives an idea of how big that Brass Scorpion actually is! blink.png

The Vorax look very nice. A modernised slice of old times happy.png

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

I think it might be the new Martian Ironearth. I haven't tried it myself yet.

I use some GW Crackle paint on the base but not the new one, it was not released when I started this army. I do it like this:

 

I start by painting the sand Banblade Brown and the stones Charadon Granite. So a light brown for most of the base and a dark grey for the stones. Then I brush on the hole base Standard Rust Pigment from MIG. I use it dry, directly out of the pot. Blow away all loose pigments and seal it with MIG pigment fixer. When this is dry I go again with pigments, Standard Rust and on some places a little bit Light Rust. Blow away all loose pigments and you are done.

The very bright effect comes from the unsealed pigments (also the dark paint scheme helps), the downsied of this is that you will loose some over time, so if you plan on transporting your miniatures I would not recoment to use a foamtray. Better to glue a magnet under the base and transport them in a metal box so nothing comes in direct contact with the base.

Absolutely gorgeous army, as a lot of others have said already. Everything's just perfectly amazing.

Are you going to base that Brass Scorpion? It's gonna be a huge base, but it's in sore need of one IMO!

Cheers,

No plans for a base right now, I agree it would look nice but makes it also much more impractical...

Poom, this thread has become my favorite that I've seen since first following this forum. I can't wait to see what you'll posting next.

Very inspiring, if I wasn't about to move, I'd be starting my own World Eater army right now. Did you ever finish Jeddek or the titan (going back a few pages I know)? Those and the other characters from Betrayer are my favorites.

Thank you so much!

 

Jeddek and Syrghala are both not finished. But now that the Mechanicum got a playable size I might go back to them and other projects I left half done..

This is just a fantastically executed army. I think it's the most menacing and scary army I have seen, especially the robots look really nasty!

Whilst I saw and commented in Greyall's topic, I'll say again - both the model and picture of that World Eater oozes malevolence! thumbsup.gif

She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts.

It's a great moment, poom, when Greyall illustrates a character you've made. I should know. Enjoy the feeling - it's going to last for a while. ^_^

Hey man I spent the better part of an hour at work browsin through this and your stuff is amazing! Keep it up man seriously! I've been tempted to add some Mechanicus to my NL's so this might send me over the edge!

Your Mechanicum force takes my breath away. All of your color choices are so sinister, and everything is so well executed that all I can do is bookmark this thread and use it as inspiration to try to emulate. I don't even play 30K, and your work makes me want to buy some Automata! msn-wink.gif

Bravo, Sir. Bravo.

I really love the bright orange bases, contrasting your dark miniatures!

Are you doing the gaming board in the same way as the Mechanicum bases?
