After losing a few battles, I found that my Dark Angels need a strong ally.
It so happened that just GW announced the arrival of a new army - Adeptus Mechanikum Skitarii. As soon as possible, I preordered a Skitarii Rangers. Wonderful 10 models, with promising statistics. When the shipment arrived to me a few days later, we found that in addition to paints, brush and grass instead of the Rangers is Balistari Ironstrider. Initially I wanted to exchange incorrectly sent model, but on reflection, I decided to keep it.
The model is great, it has a lot of options gluing and painting.
Like the other sets from the Skitarii army. I put video below from unboxing the set.
Assembling the model was also a real pleasure.
In spite of only 2 frames with parts, it was really a lot of them out there. All the time I wondered how magnetize model to use it in a number of options.
Eventually I gave up and glued it as Balistarii Ironstrider with autocannons.
Immediately primed model and performed an appropriate base using structural paste.
I decided to paint the model using the advices in the tutorial presented by Awaken Realms. Magnificent studio from Poland. Heres the WIP photos.
And here with shading and decals added.
I still have a little to paint, and already ordered Rangers are on the way.
I looked at the codex and Skitarii seem to be a very good ally.
Ironstrider itself has enormous firepower. and the Rangers and their Arquebus are awesome. Here the stats for that Rangers special gun ...
