Starting work on my first #inq28 model... hoping it's ready for the 28th. For the first month I am easing in with a simple kitbash using parts from the skitarii, empire militia, space marine tactical squad and an imperial b
The militia body is actually from the original #mordheim human mercenaries kit from 1999 that never got painted so I thought he could do with a new lease of life.
And as another first this is the first infantry miniature I'm painting in sub assemblies. Wish me luck!
+++WIP: Sicarian n.1.05+++
+++Clasification: Pending… Pending…+++ QET2-P5NT-53DC-Protocol_ducere:modeOn; +++ I present you my Sicarian Princeps, one of my favourite conversions so far.
I haven't seen so much use of Liekoron the executioner as base model for kitbashes so i wanted to try it. You can see a lot of Lords Executioner, you have of course @forgeworld_tigrus Arch Magos (#kudos to him) which is an awesome reference, but still you don't see Liekoron so much around.
I feel the look is perfect for the whole sicarian concept i was working on this unit. It makes the model look awesome and best of all stands near the other members of the unit. They make him look like a leader to them, the others are scary and haunting visions but this one has a kind of smart look.
As i did in the other models, didn't want to add much to the mix, not horror vacui model with too many things. I wanted to focus the attention on the face and the pose, so adding many things (servoskull, tendrils, wires…) felt like making the whole thing more dirty. Sometimes when kitbashing things we tent to add many things and i feel like is harder to achieve a good conversion with less parts so i try to push myself on that direction.
Next steps: Paint them like there is no tomorrow and make them fit in to the army. With that i'll have a nice kill team of AdMech and will keep working towards the army
That gaze, eternal, unknowable, but somehow, on some deep level, all telling. The scout looked long back at that blank stare -when he could finally summon the courage to get up off his feet- and lost himself in every scratch, barb and dent on that ancient visage. Eventually she rose, clogged pistons screaming, she cut through the dusty air of the gatehouse and strode back to the tunnel entrance.
Gathering himself, he followed her into the depths. He had seemingly passed this first test... #armiger#warglaive#imperialknight#warhammer#40k#warhammer40k#admech#adeptusmechanicus#blanchitsu#grimdark#inq28#lore
Forward scout for the Elirian household regiments, the long-las musket is a rare piece of equipment for those amongst the household. These scouts number only in the dozens and their expertise will be needed in tracking the Genestealer Cult that has revealed itself within the planet. #inq28#imperialguard#blanchitsu#warhammer40k#warhammerconversion
