Adeptus Mechanicus - Castellax painting continues

Been fiddling around with ideas for lists for the upcoming Betrayal Weekender in Memphis in mid-January at the Memphis Battle Bunker. Definitely looking forward to it! One of the list options I'm pondering is the inclusion of an Adeptus Mechanicus allied detachment - seems fitting for the Iron Hands after all!


Very nearly done with the Castellax now, just needs a little more gold trim here and there and some static grass. Unfortunately it's been bitterly cold here of late (lows of -12F with the days getting all the way up to a blistering 10F) so they're not going to get a sealant coat (and gloss coat on the black faceplates) for quite a while. Brr!

Been knocking out a bunch of Iron Hands as well, pics to follow soon!

You, sir, need an airbrush. If for nothing else than matte varnishing the figures indoors!!

They look stellar my friend :). Bringing any of this to Adepticon for the heresy event there?

They look great, digging the red on them!

@Miniature Tim: Aye, I've considered it, but I'm just not sure I would keep up on the cleaning and would end up with a $400 door stop. As far as Adepticon goes, I'm hoping to attend but there's some conflicting scheduling going on that is keeping me from committing. Afraid that by the time I find out yea or nay, the tickets will be sold out...

@Jugger: Thanks man! Definitely nice to paint some colors other than black and white for a while!

The gold is a very effective colour use.

Very nice work sir. :)

@Dai: Thanks man! Red and Gold always seems to goes well together!
