40K HOBBY: Dark Mechanicus #7 – Reinforcements!

2 Minute Read
Jun 13 2015


Nearing the completion of the Skitarii part of my Dark Mechanicus army it’s time to look ahead in terms of my plans as I’ve now got everything I need.

Hi! I`m Tommy from the blog bigbossredskullzI’m also on FacebookI’m making an Adeptus Mechanicus force but I’ll build, convert and paint them like Dark Mechanicus.

This week it’s a short post due to hosting and participating in a tournament last weekend. I did play with my Darkmech army and had a great time.

Chaos Knight titans
Alton the Reborn sets a tall order to follow up but getting a painting prize at the tournament for him has made me very determined to not slack in either converting nor painting. The base model for Alton I got second hand and luck has it that I got three more second hand knights for half price!


The paladin will keep his armament and will be the first knight to be added to “active duty”. The errant will be rebuilt into a gallant and the last one still on sprues will be a crusader built as an old school warden.

So basically a lot of work but it’ll give me a lot of flexibility in regards to type of knights I can use and I can even field them as a standalone army. Score!

At one point I almost didn’t think there would be anymore releases for admech but lo and behold – GW answered our prayers! I took the same approach as with the skitarii release and bought what I thought looked best. Here’s my tally.



I will actually build the Holy Requisitioner formation with breachers as it gives my army something it lacks at the moment. No drop pods for me! 😉😉
The Dominus will be the base for at least two if not three models. I have plans!

That’s it for this week! For more WiPs and PiPs, check out my blog or my Facebook pageI update several times a week!

Big things in line for my Dark Mechanicus! What are you looking forward to?
