Just can't help it - the Knight Titan has grown on me. Perhaps even more the possibility of including the FW titans in regular 40K games has, qua the rules released along the Carastus Knight Lancer, which I'm counting on will continue with the release of the other titans too.
Not sure if I'll buy the FW ones though, the opportunity to do some serious conversion is simply too good to pass up. So when the time comes I'll hopefully have at least on of each type. This will be so good.

Hazardous problems

Initially I had planned on placing the hazard stripes on the Hunters on the Fabricator gauntlets, as seen on the first pic. But once I had painted one I was pretty sure it wouldn't work anyway, the green powercord is already..well green, and I'm planning on adding blue plasma to the central coils with some OSL, like on the plasmacannon of the Herakli. I'm simply sure it will look too much like a kindergarten accident. So instead I'll go for stripes on the cord connecting the robot with the gun, and add a much duller grey to the cord on the gauntlet.

I'm also considering making a small change in weapons. Since I made these, quite a few new weapons have been added to the various bits stores, and a few of them would look really cool on these, problem is now - can I wrestle the guns off with out damaging the minis too much..........

Lucky me!

Quite an unexpected joy this morning when the missus and kids had bought me a couple of surprises on Father's Day.

Haven't read it all yet, but I like what I see - really looking forward to having a game using these rules.

...and a couple of tasties for later!

Mechanicus tank

Without even being finished with the robots I have already begun thinking about the next project to feed my painting mojo. And strongly inspired by Dave Taylor over at the most amazing Mechanicus blog I simply need to paint up a tank. I also came to think I don't think I have ever uploaded pictures of it before so here goes. It's quite the cool model, made by the guy who used to run Plastic Krak, sadly I do not know if the stuff will go into production again, now FW seem to have a progessing mass of AdMech miniatures. This was thought as a Cataphractus Neutrino Irradiatror from the TF codex (by me anyway), but should I get to use the FW books at some point I don't see why it shouldn't double as one of the new Krios line of tanks.
This is quite a daunting project for me as I have never painted up any tanks before, so I really looking forward to it, perhaps this will also help me finish those robots.
