Gribbly

I got some great feedback yesterday following my post about splitting up the mechanicvm warband to create a narrative of sorts. 
As many of you said the best way is probably just to keep on producing minis and sort them into "imperial"and "radical" afterwards. Let the chips fall where they may so to speak.

One particularly great comment came from Henry South, who suggested I´d do a small gribbly of some sort after all the giant robots and more human sized models. 

So without further ado, allow me to introduce the Excoriator Servo-drone. Henry, this one´s for you...

    1. Yeah. He feels like a companion to the cherubivm I made a while ago.

      He´s on a 25 mm base.

    1. Thanks Tony! It always feels like coming home returning to the grimdark gribbly side of the imperium... Though there are people like Kari and Bruticus who do the really f----d up bodyhorror grimdark much better than me. I´m more "heroic grimdark" or "grimdark light".

    1. Excoriator means "flayer of skin" in latin so... Yeah. Let´s just say he helps out Symmachus during his experiments and leave it at that.

  9. I feel guilty for not knowing, but what kit are all these wonderful little arms and claws from? I am pretty certain the one I see most often is from the Talos kit, thats the one you used on the Rossum Machine cultist correct?

    1. Shame on you for not recognizing a bit!

      The vestical arms are from the new Kataphron kit ( and the cultists arm is from the ironstrider). Lots and lots of cool bits like that in the mechanicvm kits.
