Mechanicum as new army in collection ? Probably


The winter is over, so now its just work, work and work again.
There is no time to find some nice, inexpensive models. There is no time to paint. There is no time to make a video on youtube, or to write posts.

The last painting I've done, is Techmarine and servitors. Great models made of finecast. Photos of the Techmarine presented in an earlier post. I decided to paint everything in red scheme to represent the mechanicum cult.

 By the way, I think that it looks like new army appear in my collection.
I mean Adeptus Mechanicus army. Two kits are available in stores as a  preorder and both look great.

Adeptus Mechanicus Ironstrider and Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii.
First one is a Mechanicum walker which come in two options. Ironstrider Ballistarius with autocannon or lasscannon and Sydonian Dragoon which is more for melee combat.

Second set is Skitarii. Mechanicum Infantry. It allows you to make a 10 man unit. 23 different heads, 25 weapon options. They can be assembled as a rangers or a vanguards.

The models look great, so assembling and painting them should be a real pleasure. 
GW chose for right path, creating sets with many options and consisting of many parts. This ensures a good time during assembling, and creating your unique units.
The right choice is also improving the quality of plastic, and replace terribly expensive finecast sets  (skaven jezzail team) larger sets of plastic models. Do not even want to imagine how much would cost finecast set of 10 Sisters of Battle...

 Finally, a pair of images mentioned at the beginning servitors. Still WIP. Need to finish and bases. I already have an idea, but I do not have time.
