With the Deathwatch project came to logical conclusion, at least until new codex release, I start a new one. smile.png

This time it will be Army of Mars(Cult Mechanicus, Skitarii, Knights and so on)

 

First of all there will be a WIP of a trio of Taranis Knights on a floor of an assembly yard:

and in a half assembled state:

More will be soon! smile.png

The Knights look promising. I like how vibrant the red is on their armor.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

The army is tournament worthy!

Done some skitarii units(rangers, vanguard and onagers) and thus completed "pure" Ad. Mech. army.

 

And here is a photo from a small scale(1000 pts) tourney. smile.png

Omnissah work is never done!

A small preview on the next Knight.

It will be made of ForgeWorld Styrix, but fully magnetized to make Crusader, Gallant or any other as needed.

A small WiP just to show that the work is going on. Sorry for the quality of the photos, will make better when it will be finished.

It is mostly done now, except base and power cable for volkite

The hand and shoulder mounts are magnetized so I can use it as a "modern"  knight sometimes.

Thanks!

 

Who won that game?

You  are about "First run", yes? A minor victory for Taranis. 

But that was long ago. 

They  won me a tournament since, hehe smile.png

So, Styrix is done^
gallery_5471_16330_405574.jpg
 
It is fully magnetized, so I can change weapons as needed/. In my army it will be a Crusader (volkite will present  a Wrath of Mars relic thermal 
 
Also, finished  Dragoons

And, as a small bonus - Lady Taranis, a pilot of this Knight. Maybe she'll be an objective marker in future. smile.png
