The Man Machine

A lone machine cultist stalks the radiated wastelands of the long abandoned forgewold Rossum Secundus. This wandering minister preaches the gospel of the Omnissiah and the promise of salvation from the bonds of flesh to the few scattered tek-tribes living out their short lives in the shadow of rusting cyclopean machinery.

  1. Gorgeous use of colour. I'd love to have the recipe for the red trousers

    1. Cheers buddy!

      Hard to give an exact recepie as I sort of wing it every time, but something like this:

      basecoat: mix of mephiston red, mournfang brown and rhinox hide
      wash: mix of crimson and earthshade
      drybrush: original mix adding more red to the mix
      highlights: add cadian flesh to the mix
      finish off with a sepia wash

      at least something like that...

    2. Thanks! After seeing Mr Blanche's Ogryn on Iron Sleet and now this beauty, I'm thinking in need to get some of these dark, earthy reds into my work.

  2. Great output these days Jeff! What exactly are you planning with the admech, just various miniatures for the fun of it?

    1. No real plan yet. Might be just a few figures, might be an army. I´ll wait until the proper ad-mech codex comes out...

  5. Wonderful work! That has to be one of my favourite heads from the new kits, and the paintjob is lovely, as usual: He looks like he has cobbled together a religion from parts of the Imperial Creed and Machine Cult. The base is just sublime!

  6. A lovely model indeed. Cool story too. Might I be so bold as to suggest adding some wounds/lesions to him exposed arms? Something to really push home the dangers of the irradiated wastes?

    1. You may. Not a bad idea at all - he might be a bit too healthy looking now that you mentioned it.
      Cheers!

  7. Awesome figure! My favourite so far this year. The base really suits the figure, you just need some tek tribesmen now.

  8. Love this model, what kits did you get the body, legs, and arms from if you don't mind me asking?
