Hi -- this will be the log of my up and coming Adeptus Mechanicus force for 8th edition. I haven't touched 40k since 3rd edition so this is something of a revival for me.
I'll be staying away from traditional forge-worlds by going with an Explorator Fleet theme; additionally the fleet has been lost out past the light of the Astronomicon for quite some time so it has slowly drifted into the realm of non-traditional in some cases. Think odd allies, worn down looking vehicles and mixed schemes on all of it as new forces have been rolled into the fleet over time.
I'll be constructing characters to go with the fleet and hopefully this will be a fun outlet for some wacky ideas over time too.

Some choice images so far :
Figured I'd put at least one Onager on a rocky base, making the crawler legs make sense :
Adding some stowage to all the Onagers as well :
Potential colour scheme -- just tone done in photoshop, no weathering etc :
My take on the Corpuscarii - A gang of asteroid miners who were somehow exposed to and gained control of the Motive Force and picked up by the fleet along the way. The traditional Fulgurites in the fleet are not a fan of the hard drinking, heretical workers who have somehow been blessed by the force of the Omnissiah but they can't deny their capability. ( Also a mockup -- I need to obliterate the Genestealer markings and add a bit more machine spirit -- also not a fan of the arms from the real priests - might need to find something a little more 'electrofist' looking and use that )
I love how the Neophyte Hybrid armor looks a lot like the Solar Auxilia suits -- another model I'd like to incorporate one day.
More to come
