I acquired the big Mech box at Christmas and am setting about augmenting the force.
Foremost, as I mentioned in the electropriest thread, and originally in the above OP, I had intended to convert my electropriests as something more... interesting than the base models. (They're not hilariously bad or such, just they don't quite work for me.)
So, without further ado, some progress:
I've enough parts,I think, to make a solid fifteen of these guys. So I'm looking forward to more work, and adding a few of the more serious Mechanicus details.
They're slightly odd sizes, as the EP originals are giants compared to the Flagellant pieces, but as they're due to look weird anyway, it's not a huge issue.
One detail that is massively annoying: they're all male. So I'm considering options to add some balance too, but obviously is not going to be immediately easy where kitbashing is concerned. Nevertheless!
I'd always fancied some Sicarians all with the 'cloaks' (I'd need five boxes of Sicarians to pull that off, so could take a flwhile...) and have them carrying the Pater Radium, and so have the 'rabble' of my collection all be slightly themed along the lines of the Children of Atom out of Fallout 3. Maybe even a few bright yellow ragged hazmat bits too...

Well, of course the parallel isn't exact. But the idea occurred to me nevertheless: the Legion Cybernetica robots should, really, be somewhat visually distinct from the rest of the force. I probably won't press it too heavily in distinguishing the Cult elements from the Skitarii elements (helped by focussing on the Skitarii robes being brown, not necessarily all of their other elements), and with a focus on yellow 'hazard' markings throughout, indicating that it might not be an entirely conventional, unified military force.
(As I've said before: space janitors is one of the major themes I had in my head. Even though there's an edge of Riza to the scheme...!)
Now, with all that in mind, I've got some of the preliminary work done.
Foremost: The robot. Still not decided on details for him and his pal yet, save to suppose that some light graffi will be used to break up the 'plainness' of them. (Though I really am quite pleased with the relatively 'clean' celestra grey and the hazard markings - even better when I tidy it all up. I was worried they'd go a bit boring 'Specialist Games Tau' fleet.)
And, here, with context on the hazard-yellow being put on the battle servitors. Striking in the black and yellow, but I'm pretty confident the servitors will get quite busy and garish soon enough.
Here, to provide some context, is an assortment of folk beside big 'un. There's some scuttlings (very fuzzy), old firehat the electro priest, my partially-done data smith, my first Storm Giant effort, the robot and the servitor.
It happens that I'm proceeding slowly too, as you might spot - there's some artefacts of the Silver Tower in amongst there.
Nevertheless. I'm looking forward to perhaps getting to spend some time fixing 'em up over the next couple of weekends.

I like the yellow weapons, they work well with the orange robes too
Second the yellow weapons!
