From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
A mechanical symphony in green and gold:
This represents my entire collection of AdMech, a single boxed i picked up in 2017. That year was one where I bought a lot of miniatures.
The green and gold paint job makes them look quite different to other Adeptus Mechanicus, but I like them this way.
I started these models off with a black undercoat, and then added the gold and metal elements.
The gold was painted by starting first with Retributor Armour, then a wash with Reikland Flesshade. A recoat of Retributor Armour was then highlighted with Liberator Gold.
The metal was painted with a similar method using Ironbreaker, Nuln Oil, and then Runefang Steel
Next it was time to fill out the colours
The jackets, hoods and sleeves were painted with that Vallejo green, shaded by adding Abaddon Black and highlighted by adding Gauss Blaster Green.
The gun and prod were painted using Templar Blue from the Reaper Master Series range, and highlighted up with increasing amounts of Blue Horror. Finally I had a go at the eyes and button using Mephiston Red by the heat of the Australian summer defeated me, drying the paint on the tip of the brush before I could get it to the model. So it goes.
Ignoring that weather-related defeat, I moved on to the basing stage:
This was achieved first with Astrogranite and Astrogranite Debris, highlighted up with a couple of greys. Finally the base rims were done in black.
My lunar wanderers are complete, for now.
Will I add more Mechanicus models to my collection? Maybe, but for now this project is complete.
