So, this project started as a commission but then the client was deploed to Iraw and no longer wanted or had time to play 40k. So, its now my own personal project/army.
Some facts the client wanted that im going to stick with:
1) Alot of technology in the army. Crude tech but tech still.
2) Pale skin.
3) Some kind of fancy rengade helmet. GS, kit bash, whatever. I went the kit bash route as its easiest and as such cheapest money wise for the client.
4) Fluff wise is they come from a world thats sole use to the imperium is mining minerals. The surface is similiar to mars (present day). The caves themselves that have been dug quickly grow a fungus. The fungus itself is what feeds the miners of the planet.
5) Heavy on the conversions in the army for everything except tanks. He will have minmal tanks when its done as they are a "miners gone bad group" as he puts it.
Thats about it. From that I came up with these things:
Bases: Rocky like mars but not as red. Some grass to spice it up along with the random piece of metal scrap.
Approved color scheme: Its got the olive green ala the fungus in the caves and its got an off light pale red as the armor color to match the surface.
The first set is to dark and the single is to bright. Go figure..
Heavy Weapons Teams: In keeping with the tech theme the weapon teams are actually a robot gun with a "driver". Basically its based off the new mobile m60 gun platforms the US military is starting to use. Obviously alot bigger since its the imperium but basically the same thing. The guy driving it is free to shot at whatever as the gun fires itself.
The gunner will be be removable for casuality reasons.
Sentinal: Robot walker basically from the mines. Now its fitted for cobat with a nice lascannon. I cant take credit for the design. I cant remember exactly where I saw it but someone made something just like it as a blood pack stalk tank. Idea snagged. Although his is better.
That covers tonights work.
There are 4 more still to be painted but they need to be reposed.
And finally some nice conversions. The army itself is lead by tech priests. So, here is the army commander and 4 of his "custom" servitors. Ive always like the idea of tech priests making thier own servitors in a style they like. My guy likes animals.
I really really like the guardsman. Cool choice of helmets, and the conversions are subtle but work really well.
Nice color scheme and all too.
Looking forward to seeing more.
Black Templar (W/D/L): 4/6/2
Dark Eldar (W/D/L): 4/1/0
Warriors of Chaos (W/D/L): 3/0/1
Spawn limbs maybe? Interesting stuff anyways.
