    Sheep does Adeptus Mechanicus

    So it happened again, another project restarted, Adeptus Mechanicus. unfortunately my thread that had been running for over 7 years has been locked for some reason, so I thought I'd start again.

    This time I blame Matt/Rictus from recalcitrantdaze.blogspot.com for causing my A.D.D, he has secured for me some of the new Ad Mech Thallanx models, and kickstarted my brain into thinking all things red and mechanical.

    Also I have to thank The Damned Artificer/Steffan. He has to many cool threads on Warseer so I'm sure you all know who he is. I asked him for some help, and he furnished me with an amazing new water mark, something I could not have developed myself. Unfortunately it has become necessary to water mark my pics because they were used without my permission or credit by another blog, which I won't mention because he doesn't deserve more traffic.

    Enough house keeping on to the pics:


    Re-tasked assembly line servitor and Ad Mech menial

    The basis for all these conversions are the cultists from the "new" Dark Vengeance set. I bought a set just because on release, and have since bought another set of just the cultists from Matt. This means I have 40 bodies to turn in Cultists of the Ommnisah.


    "Clamps" and Ad Mech Menial #2

    The idea behind these models is that they are the workers of the Mechanicum, pressed into service as my tyranid hive fleet invades the forge world and the whole planet is militarised to repel the invaders. As such, they will be heavily converted, and based to fit the tyranids too. The sparse foilage and the toxic looking sand I think fits the fluff, as the tyranids try to take over the ecosystem and push the biology to its maximum, but the poisons and polution mean that there is very little to actually grow.


    Welder turned flamer guy, and re-tasked servitor #2

    I have also bought several sets of the old OOP FW spore chimneys to populate the eventual table with, and COD buildings and tanks to ruin as well.


    Welder turned flamer guy #2, and another menial

    Eventually I will produce more Praetorians, Skitarri vehicles and tech adepts to fill out the list, but ATM this is simply a modelling exercise that's gotten out of hand in my mind.


    Menial #5, and the Tech Adept SGT

    I have made a promise to myself that I will make a minimum of 2 troops choices before I start on the "cool" stuff, but we all know how long that will probably last once the Thallanx arrives.


    Group shot

    Thanks for looking, let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions for units or models you think would be cool/fluffy.

    Cheers

    These look very cool already, I shall be watching with interest. I particularly like the Tech Adept. Which rules are you planning to use for them on the tabletop?

    Gorgeous mate. A little too chaotic for my liking, but gorgeous none the less.
    What sort of shiny things are you thinking of?

    Re: Sheep does Adeptus Mechanicus

    Loving the look of this so far, I had a similar thought to you and am using the Cultists as Imperial workers pressed into service, now I just need to convert them as well as you did! Will definitely be keeping an eye on these guys, I love AdMech plogs.

    I was thinking of doing the same mate but I thought the Cultist for the most part looked to ragged! But with with a bit of Sheep Dags who knows. I'm sorry I used your pictures mate, now I have to photo shop the water mark out!

    ATM I'm thinking of either chaos, so I can use all the nifty daemon engines as knights etc, or imperial guard allied with dark angels.

    I hope paint will take some of that chaotic look off them, it might be because the base models are still too recognisable.

    Good luck mate, they are great models, but the poses are a bit limited unfortunately.

    I had to use a lot of dags to fill in the gaps. . .and I was trying not to name names, but if you want to incriminate yourself I can't stop you

    Very nice conversion work. I'm looking forward to seeing these guys painted. The problem that I have now is the strong temptation to buy a load of them and make them up as conscripts for an Imperial Guard army!

    aww these look incredible and very akin to Jess Goodwin's sketches of the 40k universe that i just love. Im a tread head at heart so if your troops look that good i've incredibly high hopes for your tanks and walkers!

    If you don't count that lot as the 'cool stuff', then I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

    Some step by steps on those bionics would be awesome. Either that or you could just send me some? I'll set up a tab at the local for you in exchange :P

    Dude, I love your Admech grunts!!! If you need any inspiration (Heresy, I know) for the Marine portion of this log, I suggest you check out the log here on warseer titled "Knights of Mars...", the owner of that thread has some slam-dunk AM conversions.

    Might have got a bit of a semi when I saw you had started a new blog.

    Your Autumnal camoflage inspired an entire Guard army from me, and I can fast see this blog causing inspiration a plenty too!

    Great to see you back and modelling.
