Vorax Maniple Ρ-Κ-12

Continuing on with the Mechanicum archive this week, it’s time to introduce the agile melee death-machines of Cerberus Cohort, Vorax Automata Maniple Ρ-Κ-12: Created before the signing of the treaty that saw Mars and Earth reunited and the Great Crusade begun in earnest, the Vorax Class Battle-Automata was originally designed as a hunter-killer; loosed into … Continue reading

Thanatar Siege Automata Ω-Β-20

This week while I continue to power through a big pile of Flames of War minis on commission, it’s time to dig into the archives and visit a miniature I haven’t had the chance to show you yet; my Thanatar-Class Siege-Automata, Ω-Β-20. Designed as a mobile artillery platform to support the advance of smaller, more nimble … Continue reading

Domitar Σ-Κ-7

This week, the Mechanicum units continue, this time with a Domitar-class battle automata, Σ-Κ-7: Widely considered the pinnacle of the Mechanicum’s research into Battle-Automata, the Domitar was the last type of automata to enter production before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy and the ensuing technological regression. Larger and swifter than the Castellax it served beside, … Continue reading

Castellax Maniple Δ-Δ-9

Today, we’re making a start on the rank-and-file of my Dark Mechanicum project. I’ve decided that my forces are going to be a Legio Cybernetica detachment. The Legio Cybernetica are responsible for building and maintaining the fighting battle-automata of the Imperium, and as such had access to some of the most durable and powerful mechanical … Continue reading

Master of Mechanisms

Today we’re back to my Traitor Legio Cybernatica army. Having painted one of the army’s top lieutenants earlier this year, it was time for me to go ahead and paint the head of the Cerberus Cohort, Archmagos Dominus Thexeus: Unyielding master of Cerberus Cohort, Archmagos Thexeus’ body has atrophied to the point of uselessness. All … Continue reading

Dark Mechanicum

So, with the Ultramarines nearing completion, and the Iron Warriors having long gone past the point where I can field everything on the table in a reasonably-sized game, it’s time to move on to another project. One of the Horus Heresy armies that everyone went nuts over when the rules came out was the Mechanicum. … Continue reading

The God-Engine Marches

Something a little different this week. From the vaults of my hobby room comes a miniature so large that it hardly seems appropriate to call it a “miniature”; the Lucius-Pattern Warhound Scout Titan: The Warhound Scout Titan is one of the Imperium of Man’s mightiest Weapons. Though dwarfed by every other Imperial Titan Class, the … Continue reading

We Can Rebuild Him…

Back to my Ultramarines this week, with a warrior/priest who isn’t technically an Ultramarine himself, but rather an allied commander serving alongside them: Archmagos Norfleet of Maliwan Forge: One of the dignitaries sent to accompany Eikos Lamiad on his journey to Calth, Archmagos Norfleet was caught in the destruction of the Holophusikon along with the … Continue reading

Deus Ex Mechanicum

Hi all, This week, we’re taking a look at some minis that became a fast favourite of mine when they first came out around 2010; I’ve finally had a chance to paint some up. I speak of the Mechanicum Thallax Cohort: Thallax Cohorts are created by cybernetically augmenting humans to a phenomenal degree. The armoured shell … Continue reading
