I am making slow, but steady progress on my Dark Mechanicum/Knight force for the London Heresy 2017 and now I have completed a keystone piece – my HQ choice: Archmagos Draykavac, Warlord of Cyclothrathe, Sovereign-Prelate of House Atrax, Bringer of Perfection.
This is the first model I have got from Forgeworld from their Horus Heresy Character range – the rest of my purchases have been simple upgrade kits or rank and file troopers. There is an amazing level of crazy gothic detail with this kit and I have decided to stick to my core policy of simply not bothering to glue on fragile, gribberly looking tendrils which are not likely to survive transport. Instead I will repurpose some the dendrites for later kit-bashing and conversion purposes. I have really enjoyed working with all of the Mechanicum Forgeworld kits so far as they are so easy to paint: lots of fine mechanical details which look good with a simple wash and dry brush.
