So I've been intending to start a WIP thread for a while to help keep me motivated and I finally got around to doing it.
After finally settling on a Mechanicum force for my first AoD army I actually started painting some models for the ETL. I picked up the Taghmata Army List in September and decided to focus on the Ordo Reductor because they are awesome.
As the title suggests, the backstory I've been developing in my head has them as survivors of of either Istvaan III or Istvaan V. I'm leaning more towards Istvaan V as Caleb Decima is kind of the iconic Istvaan III Ordo Reductor survivor. Haven't really delved into how they survived too much and that's kind of where I'm at on that.
Ultimately, I'd like to run some legion allies with them but I am torn between shattered Iron Hands and Black Shields. Iron hands are easy to work into the Istvaan survival but I'm leaning very heavily towards Black shields. Not sure if it will even be possible to take Black Shield allies but I guess we'll find out once book 6 comes out. Which is probably when I'll make my decision since it will have rules for both.
Anyway, enough rambling… Here's some pics of what I've got so far.
Thanatar - Calix
My most recent work is on this Krios Venator which is about 90% done.
And finally a little peek of what's next,,,
Also in the queue I've got a Thanatar, a Minotaur artillery tank, an Archmagos, and some Thallaxi.
C&c is welcome. Thanks for taking a look.
