Hey Gang, I've got the minidex here for anyone that wants to have a read, I've used the templates that are floating around online to recreate the entries for each unit, with fluff and thematic naming and what not. The format is a bit out of whack as I need to find a right hand sheet template for doing units.. so bear with me there haha. (The copy I'm putting up has a few pages missing as they are straight out of the Redbooks for rules).
Thrilliart Taghmata Minidex
Have a crack off the fluff and let me know what you think gang!! Please let me know if its a bit too Mary-Sue etc!
Holy smokes, your work is so cool, I can't stop myself from freaking out.
At the moment I'm planing an Epic Adeptus Mechanicum army myself (Incaldion themed). And now I want to get an Jotunn- Class Automata in 6 mm. I need to source parts which look the part. This is sooo good.
Thanks a heap brother!! Glad you enjoyed the Jotunn... he took a bit of finangling to get him right and I'm happy how he came out! . OOh let me know when you figure it out, would love to see it!
I like the insectoid look of the Jotunn Automata, it matches some of what we read in the Black Library books and ties in nicely to the daemon engines of the forty-first millenium. I'm a big fan of Theta-12-Zyvod, you really do have a talent for making characters that stand out. The lance looks good and the combination with the helmet style and circular shield recalls the warriors of antiquity, whilst the fur and mail cloak ties her back into the other warriors of the forge.
Thanks mate!! Yeah really wanted the dark-mech and almost like proto-deamon engine sort of feel, while still having some cybernetica roots (the little R2-D2 head, Dominatar shoulder pads etc!).
Super happy with how she came out! She will be taller than the rest of the Hoplites due to the rust stalker legs, but will very much look like them!
The ingenuity you have with these conversions is refreshing. Just balls out weird, dark sci-fi.
Can't wait to see what you come up with next.
Balls out weird is where its at mate!!
The weirdness sadly will be slowing a bit as I've built everything, but I've got plenty of pictures to come as it gets painted.. although I wonder what I could do with some Vorax ...
“Working like a madman” should not be an apology in this thread. Those are the exact words I want to hear!
Uttu is another phenomenal conversion and the fluff behind him is great. The insectoid look is very well executed with the multi legs, the layer of plates, as those two antennae like appendages up from. Even that “prow” on the front makes me think of those Hercules beetles. I can just imagine the top life-like movement as that thing skitters about raining plasma or even ramming and crushing lessers beneath it.
The hoplite is also very sweet! The mix of bits you used go together flawlessly. I just love the use of the stalker legs and when armed with the lance and that shield it looks so characterful.
Or Mad Magos?
Thanks mate, super happy with Uttu.. the frontal plates weren't actually meant to be on him in my original invisioning..but the lord Discordant once I got my hands on it was a little smaller and less impressive than I thought it would be...so much blu-taccing and trying this and that... I eventually got to the Uttu design.. which if I need to make some more thanta should be relatively easy to replicate! (Although requires multiple kids haha). Once it came together thats the exact vibe I got as well mate... big ponderous Goliath beetle!
Yeah happy with how she came out... again it was just the slapping together of parts that i thought would look good, then making it all work and stick together haha.
Those are some gorgeous models! I especially like the Thanatar and your Magos. Some nice inspiration for my own Domitar, that keeps lieing around.
Also, how did you make the chain mail parts?
Thanks mate! Have a look around the interwebs, there is some amazing stuff people have done with the Domitars and Iron Circle chassis!!
It is a Green Stuff World chainmail pushmold, Medium size.
Awesome work, dude! Can't wait to see them at Tegular Hive
A local melbourne boy mate?
This is gold mate.
Can't wait to see more
Cheers!! Will do what I can to keep it churning out!!
