Wizardry in Progress 12/19/18

It's bee a fairly solid week for hobby this week. I managed to assemble a new Onager Dunecrawler, I picked up another set of Promethium Relay Pipes and finished up the Death Company jump marines. I also finally glued the Sicarian Ruststalkers to bases.

Let's take a look!

New Promethium Relay Pipes

For awhile now I've been feeling that I needed one more set of pipes and it's been on the back burner for a bit.

Then while looking at terrain on Games Workshop's website, I noticed that the Promethium Relay Pipes were no longer listed. This was a slight bummer, but I was ok with it.

But then while wandering around my local shop I noticed a package tucked away on the shelf and it was another pack of pipes!

I snagged them without hesitation.

I then took them to work and sprayed them silver while still on the sprue. This isn't something I normally do, but these are just terrain pieces which will get tossed around, bumped and mistreated in transport. So it's not critical if there are some spots that are uneven or just painted over with drybrushing.

They are now glued together and ready for bases, but that is for another time.

New Onager Dunecrawler

The Admech army grows!

I worked out a trade with a friend of mine for a couple of Start Collecting Skitarii boxes for my collection of Relic Knights models.

I was even able to add the Skitarii Ranger that I meant for the original Onager. I broke the right arm off of him and made him holding the Heavy Stubber while pointing.

The current plan is to use 3 of them, two with Neutron Lasers and one with the Icarus Array.

I can't wait to get them all on the field, with the blob of Vanguard Skitarri I plan on using.

Not pictured is my first attempt to airbrush anything. I was able to get my air compressor set up and airbrushed the leg sections with Rakarth Flesh and Bone to base coat them, rather than brush painting them. It'll shave off a decent chunk of time.

Sicarian Ruststalkers

These dudes have been assembled since 2015... I just now have them on bases and have a plan for them in game.

They've spent the last 3 years in a box full of conversion bits and other models though and as a result a few of their swords were broken.

Luckily, thanks to my sets of Infiltrators, I had spare swords and arms. So I was able to easily repair them.

They will be marching soon as we are building up to running 2,000 point lists. Its a shame that they haven't been used before, as the Ruststalkers were one of the main reasons I bought into admech in the first place!

Finished Death Company

Its taken way longer to get finished than I am proud of, but the Death Company Jump Marines are finished!

I still need to drybrush their bases and paint the rims. But the models themselves are completed.

I have one more 5 man squad to do of these, but I ran out of Dark Reaper paint for the armor plating.

So, next up I'm doing a 5 man squad of Terminators, which are currently primed with Rhinox Hide and waiting their turn in line.

But that's it for now.

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.

If you like what I do and want to support the site and my painting endeavors, you can do so over on Ko-fi. All it takes is $3 and it's much appreciated.
