I have finished the second part of the Adeptus Mechanicus after what feels like an age. I have very much enjoyed the commission, and working on a whole army all at once rather than a few miniatures here and there. It was not as much of a slog as I feared it might be, but I did use a lot of red!
The only mini I have not pictured is the flier, as It is being sent part assembled, and it did not fit in the light box!
I shall be taking a bit of a break from the Ad Mech, but not for long as I already have a few more waiting to be done!
As well as work on the Adeptus Mechanicus commission, I have been adding to the Lunar Auxilia range for Forster’s Foundry. I love these miniatures and the more of the range I see, the more excited I am about them.
I want to share the Lord Conjurer today, as I really liked his pose, his flaming hands and his lead weight too. He didn’t take long to paint, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing so.
I have been working on an army commission for the Adeptus Mechanicus for the past couple of weeks, and I like to think I have finished the first third of the army. I have not done a commission this large before, but I am really enjoying it. I was thinking about having my own Ad Mech army, but now I get all the joy of painting one, without having to find space to keep it afterwards. Here is how I have got on so far:
I have already built part of the next third, so keep your eyes open for future blog posts.
I’ve been up to my knees in Ad Mech and 3D printing for a while, that I forgot to post this guy. This knight was a commission I did recently. It was a challenge as it’s the biggest miniature I have painted and built from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed doing so and I loved how he turned out.
The client wanted a dark and sinister scheme so after discussion, we went for black and dark copper. Here is how he turned out:
The last picture I couldn’t resist taking.
Both of us were pleased with how it turned out and I learned a great deal while creating him.
I’ve been painting some more of Sons of Guilliman today and I thoroughly enjoyed them. These kits are a bit older Than most I have done and as such, the mould lines needed extra attention. I think they were first made in 2004 so a lot has changed since they were new
What I love about these is the colour scheme. I love how bright they are and they are a pleasure to paint once again.
They have been a welcome change from the Lunar Auxilia I’ve worked on over the past couple of weeks, I hope you like them as much as I do!
