Soldiers of Incaladion: Skitarii Vanguard

Incaladine Skitarii Vanguard squad

Yes, I know, I know… I should try to finish one of the units I am currently working on, instead of starting a new one. I have a good excuse for this, however! A couple of months ago with some friends we arranged a Kill Team campaign day, and I absolutely wanted to bring for the first time my Adeptus Mechanicus on the table.

After a couple of playtesting games to try different units on the field, I settled for a ten-man unit of Skitarii Vanguards supported by my Sydonian Dragoon. So, as I only had a Rangers unit, I had to start building and painting as fast as I could, putting aside all the other projects.

Unluckily I did not complete the unit within the deadline (looks like 40 days are not enough for me to complete a single unit), but it did not matter, as the campaign was called off due to last-minute engagements for three out of seven players.

Even if we did not play in the end, I am happy that I have found the motivation to finally build and paint a box of models that I bought almost two years ago! My backlog is finally starting to clear! (If I manage to not buy immediately the new Belisarius Cawl, that is…)

Now, let’s finish those Scyllax Guardian Automata and Myrmidon Secutors.

Soldiers of Incaladion – WIP Myrmidon Secutors

Myrmidon Secutors

Those are really gorgeous models, that any Adeptus Mechanicus fanatic should add to his/hers collection! The only problem with them is that their arms are really fragile.

Lords of Incaladion – Kitbashing a Techpriest Dominus

Kitbashed Magos Dominus

Maybe you can recognize the Techpriest from this old post (almost eight months ago). As you can see, in the meantime I managed to work on him a bit, adding some leftovers from the Techpriest Domins plastic kit, a syringe and a tentacle from the Dark Eldar Talos, a servo-pincer from a Tecmarine and a servo-skull from Forgeworld’s Magos Dominus kit (the first Ad-mech model I’ve ever painted).

I’m in two minds with him. On one hand I think he still need other gothic-steampunk details to seamlessly blend in the Adeptus Mechanicus range. On the other hand, I think that adding any more details might overburden the model. Time and inspiration will tell, I think.
