Heresy Era Mechanicum - Adsecularis painting in progress

Over the last few mornings I've not been sleeping well so I've found myself killing time before heading out for work. So, I fired up the batch painting machine and got cracking on the Tech Thralls for the Mechanicum army I have planned for the Las Vegas Open coming up in February.

Started off with the usual red recipe of Vallejo's Dark Flesh, followed by a medium and light drybrush of Gory Red and Blood Red, respectively. Finally a wash of Carroburg Crimson was applied to help blend them together and deepen the shade.

Next up I laid on the Burnished Gold followed by a Reikland Fleshshade wash. At this point they're starting to come together pretty nicely, getting the metals in place on the arms, weapons and backpacks should be pretty straightforward, then they'll get a white cogtooth pattern on the hem of their coats and around their necks. So far, so good!


  1. I really dig these conversions. They are very effective. The paint job is looking good!

  2. You're a machine!

    They look great man :) Wish I could swing out to the LVO and see them in person!

  3. Super cool! Really liking how their faceplates worked out too.

  4. Holy crap. Slow down damn it! You and Kim are gonna break the internet :P

    P.S. - Please do not balance one of these guys on your butt in the next post.
