From ByronM: 30k Mechanicum Archmagos Prime and Greek Unarmoured Phalanx (102 points)
This week my hobby induced ADD took me in way to many directions, so I have about 6 different things all started but not finished, heck I haven't even started next weeks theme entry or figured out what to do for it! So, I only have 2 smallish entries to put up today.
First up is the Archmagos Prime on Abeyant for my 30k Mechanicum army, which now makes it an actual legal force to play with an HQ.
The model itself is pretty cool as an Archmagos Prime is one of the highest members of the cult of the Omnimessiah and has given their body over to the machine. There is very little left that is even remotely human on this model.
Then there is the Abeyant, his transport and control unit. The model for it looks like either a pulpit for him to preach the ways of the machine God from or some kind of cyber organ or synthesizer, at least to me. The transport is made to hold his custom base so that you can have him on or off the transport.
Now that it is a valid force, I have also provided an overall picture of the army so far. This is in-fact all that I bought initially to do for the force, but I have of course fallen in love with them, and more are on the way....
The other models I actually got completed this week are another 16 Greeks. This time more unarmoured Greek hoplites that I did as a support unit of mercenaries or militia for either side that I am working on.
These are once again more of the Warlord (Immortal) figures as I continue to move work through them before going on to others in any meaningful way. I still have at least 4 more units of them, but hope to get at least 2-3 done next week so that I am closer to being able to paint the Victrix ones that I have up next.
Nothing fancy with these guys, as I did them all in robes, so very little armour to paint up. While simple individually, I think they work as a group so am calling them done.
That's it for this week, hope everyone has a good week.
Wow Bryon, you are really producing some amazing work for this year's challenge. I am going to count the Archmagos as a vehicle, but with a crew and an additional couple of points for the increased scale of the piece, so 102 points in total, another fabulous week's work Sir.
