Ad Mech Part 2

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!

Lunar Auxilia Lord Conjurer

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.

The prints of this mini can be found here:

Adeptus Mechanicus – Part 1

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.

These are painted to T1 level.

Knight!

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.

The Warlord!

I have finally finished the Warlord. I have expressed my love of Titans previously, and this one is no different.

It has taken a long time to do as I’ve been working on other things in between. But I pushed through and here it is, all finished and shiny.

I am so very proud of this mini. The freehand came out how I wanted it too and I’m just pleased with the end result.

Brothers of Guilliman Terminators!

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!

Iron Warrior update!

I have begun the task of fixing up and touching up some of the Iron warriors. I’ve decided to focus on the infantry to begin with and have been doing one a day. So far it’s been good fun.

One task was to repair the casualties, which was just a case of matching the bits to the broken minis and regluing them.

Five need pinning but that can happen at a later time. Here are the finished ones.

I am enjoying this project greatly, and doing one a day is a surprisingly quick way to get through them. 84 left to go!

Then vehicles… yikes.

Death Guard.

Just a quick post today to show off some Death Guard miniatures I have painted for a regular. They will be featured on his YouTube channel at some point in the near future.

This is a link to one of his videos, featuring the miniatures I have painted in the past – worth checking out for sure!

I’m very pleased with how these turned out and it was quite difficult to send them away.

The base with the leaves and water effect I was particularly pleased with.

Project: Iron Warriors.

I recently bought an Iron Warriors from a friend in Europe. Mostly to help them out rather than because I needed them.

When they arrived, they had sustained severe damage during transit, which was disappointing. One of the tanks in particular was in quite poor condition due to the damage it sustained.

I am not an expert with resin, so I got in touch with one for advice and help. Leaky_cheese to the rescue!

So, instead of despair and a pile of broken bits, I now have a project. I will be painting one Iron Warrior a day from the infantry, and Cheese will be helping me fix the bigger stuff.

I have already started – here is the Iron warrior I touched up today.

I have a lot to do, and it is a shame they sustained the damage, but with a bit of time and effort, they’ll be great!
