Wizardry in Progress 1/31/18

This week, we're still on the Admech train as I work my way through my Adepticon army list. I've finished the black armored robot, the Datasmith, modified a Sydonian Dragoon and started on the next group of Skitarii Vanguard!

Such progress, much wow. Let's take a gander.

Tutorial: How to Paint Glowing Eyes

How to Paint Glowing Eyes

Hey everyone, today I have a post on how to paint glowing eyes, as seen on the blue Kastelan Robot that I have been posting on Twitter and Instagram.

This is no ordinary tutorial post though. This is a video! The first video tutorial I've ever done and I hope to continue on with them and post a new tutorial every month this year.

If all goes well, I may go back and make videos of past tutorials as well and add them to their respective posts to.

Miniature Monday - Skitarii Rangers

While I am a big fan of the Vanguard, the Rangers are probably a notch higher when it comes to how much I like the look of them.

There's something about their coats along with their hooded heads that I really like. But since I preferred the Vanguard's rifles over the Ranger's, I passed on using Rangers as the main body of my force. But, that meant I got to use the Rangers for something even more fun. 

Sniper squads.

Wizardry in Progress 1/24/18

Another Wednesday means another Wizardry in Progress!

This week, I was still neck deep in Warhammer 40,000 territory and managed to get a 5 man squad of Sicarian Infiltrators mostly magnetized and I am nearly finished with painting another Kastelan Robot.

Lets take a look.

Miniature Monday - Sydonian Dragoon

There are two models that sold me on Adeptus Mechanicus, one is the Onager Dunecrawler and the other is the model we're talking about today. The Sydonian Dragoons, aka the chicken walker.

These guys sold me on starting an Admech army, hands down. The look unlike anything else I'd seen in Warhammer 40,000 at that point, they rock a sweet jousting lance and they are powered by a quadruple amputee in a gimp suit. What's not to love?

When Skitarii launched, I ordered two of them without hesitation and now I have one all fully painted and ready to go.

Welcome to Wizardry in Progress, my weekly recap of projects and progress over the past week.

This week, a Kastelan Robot has taken up most of the hobby time. Lets take a look!

Miniature Monday - Skitarii Vanguard

These fellas have been done for a while, but forgot to take pictures or do a write up on them. I had written about them previously in some of the WIP posts for the entire Adeptus Mechanicus army as a whole. But, they deserve their own post.

Wizardry in Progress 1/10/18

It's a new year and its time to make WIP Wednesday into its own weekly post! Rather than randomly posting WIP pictures when I feel like I have something to talk about, I'm going to pool it all together into a summary of what's happened each week.

With that said, welcome to the first post in a new series called Wizardry in Progress, here I'll share what I've worked on over the last week, with pictures and commentary of each, in the hopes to keep myself motivated and to keep posting on a regular basis.

It could be a single big project or it could be multiple large projects. But each week I'll be gathering up images and talking about progress! Eventually, I'll have a logo for this too. But for now, let's get to it!

Miniature Monday - Onager Dunecrawler with Icarus Array

The Onager Dunecrawler is all complete, after three weeks of painting! I'm really pleased with how well it turned out, especially after it was dusted with the Secret Weapon "rust" pigments.

I have to say, I believe this model is one of the best paint jobs I've ever done and it looks great on the table along with the rest of my painted Adeptus Mechanicus army. I really like how the green came out on the armor plates and it really pops against the red of the Mars styled bases.

Conversions - Custom Kastelan Robot Heads

Its no secret that the Kastelan Robots are one of my favorite models from the Adeptus Mechanicus faction of Warhammer 40,000. I just really love the idea of big stompy robots, and I am a fan of the retro-future look of them.

Ever since I first saw them, I wanted to run an army of them. Each one painted up as an individual, and not just a tide of the same color scheme. The ideas in my head were endless.
