Adeptus Mechanicus - Archmagos Strandax painted

Speaking of insectile styling, I fixed up the last few things I missed earlier on Archmagos Standax. The army is going to be filled with Conversion Beamers, it seems!


I'm more pleased with how this one turned out compared to Malevolus. He's a bit more subdued in color and quite a bit more dynamically posed. In game he's also a bit more fearsome - The servo-harness gives him a pair of servo arm attacks, plus a Conversion Beamer (of course) and a plasma burner. His Sagittarii mount makes him Relentless, and the Omnissian Axe is +1S AP2 Unwieldy. Haywire - definitely a vehicle killer at all ranges!


Though I haven't been able to order them yet, Blight Wheel miniatures does another spider-bot which I'm planning to use as the carriage for the heavy weapons teams, which should really tie the whole army together. Got a ten-man squad of Hypaspists up on the painting table next - definitely need to get some Troops choices for the army done!

Man that's a cool conversion, may have to pinch that for my Inquisitor 28mm Warband.

Yet another great model. Your AdMech are going to look superb by the time you are finished.

I love what you did with the conversion beamer. I've run out of old Squat models for heavy weapon teams, and that spider carriage looks ideal. Great stuff!

Thanks folks! I'm really pleased with the Blight Wheel minis and I'm definitely going to be ordering more from them in the future!

That Admech army of yours is already looking incredible.

Those Blightwheel minis have really proved useful here, and you've done a great job on them. I'd love to face off against such a well done army.
