I've always been an admirer or your painting with the Iron Hands and Alpha Legion, but you've really brought it up a notch with these guys. They match the reference art very well. As previously mentioned the poses are great throughout, Haar looks cracking too.

Haar looks great!
I actually really like his hair

Concerning the weathering: I really like how your guys look! And I completely agree that a lot of armies (mine included) reach comic-like levels of weathering.

Holy smokes, they are beautiful.

I think some very light blood spatter would enhance them, but it would need to be only the slightest hint applied.

Stunning work on Haar, the army is coming together so well. It's been a great project to follow :) 

 

Lots of inspiration for my own projects!

“The Deimos Pattern Reaper Heavy Tank, I record it’s existence here for posterity as scarce few remain within our service. I refuse to use its common name, for the name of Lupercal will now forever be associated with heresy. Since Horus’ betrayal I have heard reports of forge worlds ceasing production and army regiments loyal to the Emperor sundering their own dwindling supplies of the heavy tank, superstitious fools.

I for one, will not cast aside this valuable resource. The Reaper Heavy Tank, once the main battle tank of the Legiones Cataegis, often found in their vanguard during the unification of Terra. Crewed by mortal men under the command of the legion you understand, for who would trust the control of such firepower to the enraged battle choler of a Thunder Warrior?

Such was their respect for its design, the [REDACTED] made it their priority to obtain the STC templates necessary for its construction, from the Forgeworld Deimos, as the traitors made their way out of the segmentum solar. Yet another reason why I suspect this venerable war machine will dwindle in it prevalence as war rages on.

That we will use this tool to hunt and destroy those who it once served in a forgotten age, is a wonderful but bitter irony.......

My group and I use the term moneytank to reference mostly the fact that it's details would cost a mint if someone were to source bits properly. IRL, you're looking at possibly 400 USD in the kits used to build the tank: OOP democles, Medusa (chassis) and whatever the plasma baneblade costs just for the weapon. It's impressive execution wise and on how expensive it may be to pull off.

It's not meant to be derogatory since anyone who can build a thing should be praised for the skill, money and time needed to pull that off.

That's a Warhound Plasma Blast Gun. Also, the Damocles isn't OOP and I think both versions available come with the dudes inside it?

 

In any case, I love the Plasma Macharius. Looks sweet.

Oops, I default to HH so I didn't see they moved the old Democles over to 40k.

*WARNING* due to thermal energy and atomic radiation emitted by this vehicle, it is recommend that operators utilise “destroyer” pattern power armour. This has also proven to improve astartes life expectancy by 3.5% in the event of a catastrophic failure of the weapons cooling system.

SUPER COOL!!

The macharius is one of my favourite tanks in the game and you've really done a brilliant job!

Cool conversion and a wonderful paint job!

 

Gederas suggested above that this was using the titan plasma blast gun (you've since confirmed it isnt), i'm hoping to convert a standard macharius to an omega as I doubt i'll ever get my hands on a real Omega. Woud you be able to confirm my hopes that the titan blastgun would fit on the chassis?

A smashing job, the colours look so good and the bright white seems to emphasise the bulk of the thing. The lenses are nicely done too. I know that it's obviously scorched and soot stained, but I feel like the end-on view of the barrels is a bit plain, though I'm not sure there's anything to be done. Similarly, the lower front hull section has a lot of blank space to play around with. I suppose the XIIth were never the type to cover things with freizes and murals though, particularly on such a hazardous vehicle.

Thanks for all the likes and kind words everyone, I’m really pleased with the end result, hope you’re all enjoying the little extracts I add with each completion!

The macharius chassis is a lot smaller than I thought, my Sicarans are only slightly smaller in size. Unfortunately I don’t own a warhound plasma blaster, so I’m afraid I can’t tell you whether it would look correct on a standard macharius. How would you model it as being open topped?

I suppose the XIIth were never the type to cover things with freizes and murals though, particularly on such a hazardous vehicle.

Thanks Pearson, I would agree, the front view is quite plain. In some ways I quite like that, most of the betrayal artwork shows the XIIth with minimal squad markings, some infantry members don’t even have any legion identifiers on their person. It’s past the point of being able to add decals, and the FW sheet is also fairly limiting.

I do plan on picking up some mig gun metal weathering powder, to add more metallic shine to the barrels. That should pick out detail, there is graphite already applied, but it’s a subtle effect, only seen at certain angles in the light.

Well, theres a few units on the work bench at the moment, stay tuned....

Absolutely stunning. Having seen the project from a pile of parts to completion, it's simply outstanding. This will make a great centerpiece for a great army.

Hmmm, I've been thinking of ways to make it work for a while. One was a mechanicum vehicle chassis but i'm not so sure if there are any large enough and i dont really want to spend the money to then have something i can't use.

I was thinking to use the medusa as a platform and maybe some aegis defence line wall pieces and plasticard to creat some sort of command deck/platform over and around the rear of the gun, I'm still in the design stages right now.

Either way i feel that it will pale in comparison to what you've achieved here. so again, really good job!
