I have not been totally away from the hobby, you know…
Even if the subtitle of this blog is “Working for the Omnissiah”, lately I have not been painting any Adeptus Mechanicus-aligned model. Well, the fact is: the weather has not been good enough to undercoat any new model in the latest month, and when it was I had more pressing matters to attend to or was in the bed with a flu. So, waiting for sunnier days without wind, I am currently focusing on clearing my backlog of started-but-never-completed models. The choice then fell on the Genestealer Cults Aberrants because I wanted to try to paint some skin a muscles, after so much robes and metallic plates.
Rejoice, servants of Nurgle! After sitting unfinished for more than a year on my hobby table, the Plague Toads are finally ready to bolster my small Daemon force.
At long last I have completed my Myrmidon Secutors. These models are really easy to paint, and a pleasure to work with. Their only weak point is their arms, that are brittle and can break easily if you do not handle them with the due care.
Disturbing automata, birthed by the nightmare of a crazy Tech-priest (and the illustrations of John Blanche, clearly). They are not very easy to paint, due to their shape and the many cables on them. Completing them, however is incredibly rewarding and, as an added bonus (or was it the reason I bought them in the first place?), they look great both in the cabinet and on the battlefield!
