Interitus Mechanicus

Well, THAT was fun!

I haven't done a big machine - like a dread or tank - for quite a while and had forgotten just how much fun it could be. You can be more loose and sloppy with a large model like this and there's something oddly soothing about drybrushing large areas of machinery. 



The Interitus Heavy Support Walker itself is a experimental Legio Cybernetica model with two large Punisher gatling guns. At it's core is a fierce machine spirit paired with the interred brain of a former Ordo Reductor Engineseer. 







I might add some extra parchments and purity seals at a later stage to give it a more archaic feel. 

This was also the first time I used powders (vallejo burnt sienna pigment) and I'm quite pleased with the effect.

  1. Amazing. I really like your painting style. The muted and dry colours really catches the Grimdark without becoming too dark.
    Keep it up!

  4. Absolutely wonderful! The paintjob is lovely, as per your usual standard, but what I like most is how you've managed with a very original walker design. It's almost unbelievable how well those Stormfiend parts work -- especially the head!

    If this is a yardstick for your coming AdMech models, we are certainly in for a treat ;)

    1. The parts do blend together rather seamlessly don´t they?

      We´ll see how the dragoon turns out...

  5. This is really a sluppy paintjob ;P
    Anyways, it's looking good and twisted, slightly off and has big guns - can't get any better.

    2. Oh yes, that it does. Can't be too clean when it's AdMech

  9. Fantastic work. The powder work on the legs really finishes it off nicely.

  10. Great work. The blending of parts from across all the ranges shows a superb eye for those small details that make the final product speak to that blanchesque part of the grimdark. I love conversions like this.

  12. If I would've improved one thing on it is heat staining the guns. On Peacock I tried doing it with blue and purple washes and I really like the end result. Best method of heat staining I've ever tried.

    Besides that I think it's a wonderfully kit bashed piece with that signature painting style of yours :)
