Those of you who have followed this blog, know how many different designs I have been through, trying to figure out how to build my hypaspists. The Hypaspist being the basic footslogger of the Mechanicus skitarii, I have been wanting something not too over the top, but also something more scary than a regular IG guards man. As soon as I saw the new scions, I was pretty sure I had the solution. I think I have mentioned it before but those models are in my opinion some of the best GW has produces for a very long time - and those helmets..wow, just wow.
Of cause they could not be used without a little modification. A simple legswap did most of the trick, changing them into something quite different. A bit of groin armor, to tie them in with the rest of the army - and I cut off the camping kit on the backpack and added a tank from some other backpacks I got on Shapeways - just love tanks on backpacks, dunno why and don't ask.
