Did you think that those Electro Priests were going to be the only additions to the Adeptus Mechanicus this month? Well so did I! However Games Workshop recently released a new codex for the faction, and alongside it a new Skitarii Marshal miniature. These are the senior officers of the Skitarii, veterans charged with commanding the legions whilst the priests are busy thinking holy thoughts about the wonderful machines of old. With my first squad of Skitarii rangers now fully painted and more waiting for attention I decided to treat myself – and to break with tradition and paint him straight away rather than leaving him half done for months or years first!
It’s also almost the end of June (where does the time go?) which mean we must be due for a look at the progress I’ve made with this army since the start of the year. First of all here’s a look at everything I’d painted by the end of 2020.
Not very impressive is it, especially as two of those models are loaned from Blackstone Fortress. By now however things are looking a bit more imposing (click on the picture to see a bigger version).
Tremble hereteks! Naturally I’ve got a lot more planned for the second half of 2021 so let’s see how that legion looks in another 6 months.
