Cog Building 101 – Paint Scheme

So after the first article outlining want I wanted to do HEREย and shout out to Triple Helix Wargamesย for helping me out as always with the army.

I have my color scheme, it ties in with my fallen knights I think is also dark for dark mech and is easy to knock out as monthly targets need to be hit with this army. 2000pts within a year is still the target and hopefully is reachable (if it isn’t will just add in some really big stompy robots ;))

Anyway here is Unit Alpha 1, aka Skitarii Rangers! So the tie in with my knights is of course some Tzeentchy blue mutations which I hope catch the eye of the dark red and black cloaks but also don’t drag away too much.

I really wanted some conversions in the unit especially with access to only one Transuarnic arquebus, gluing some guns together I think works OK for a second.

So the base of the red is using Khorne red and highlight with wazdakka red and of course using loads of Nuln Oil ๐Ÿ™‚

I also wanted to give my unit leaders some real Tzeentch feel and I was lucky enough to be sent some spare Tzanagors with give the guys a little more of a bonkers look ๐Ÿ™‚

So from the start collecting box I have the Dominus and the Onager to go, and I think I am well on the way to having them complete.

Stay tuned.
