  1. This is easily the creepiest servo-skull I've ever seen. His purpose, made oh-so clear by your naming of him, makes him something straight out of a horror movie.

  2. Nice! It's funny how well the Dark Eldar stuff matches the Mechanicus aesthetics.

  4. Awesome little dude! So much to look at! I love how you paint all these little details in such varied colours but manage to never over crowd the model.

    1. Cheers Lee! It's actually not that many colours - gunmetal with different washes for the body, bone for the skull and black-blue for the carapace. Then there's only dark red, yellow and cyan for the spot colours.

    1. I find smaller models tend to make up for their lack of size with an excess of personality.

  6. Fantastic, I really want to do stuff like this but so many other things I HAVE to do before I get to 'play' with my hobby.

    1. Isn't the point of this hobby to have fun and play around?

    2. It is indeed and I have lots of fun playing, can put up with losing so long as I have a good game, but the hobby side of it, well I try to be in control but I resigned myself to the addiction a long time ago when I went on the wagon. Now, it's the compulsion that drives me, that's not to say there aren't times when I don't enjoy or have fun with my painting etc. but overall I'm driven to do what I do, not the other way round. I even looked up if addictions can be good, because this is kind of harmless as they go but the answer wasn't supportive of any addictive behaviour whatever it is. So I'm a functioning 40k addict, sadly I can't kick it now it sucked me back in to it's grimdark universe.

  7. These two compliment each other perfectly man.

    I can already see them in a (grim)dark room somewhere swarming over their latest test subject.
