Project Dark Mechanicum – Adepticon 2019

After Adepticon 2018, even though we had one “interesting” game there 😉 , we decided to embark on our 2019 Adepticon project – Dark Mechanicum! Riffing off the Porphyrion Knight I made for Adepticon 2018, I wanted to make a full army of Dark Mechanicum in the same spirit of that conversion, but across the entire army. Check out the pictures of the models of the army in progress inside!

Las Vegas Open 2017 – Horus Heresy Gaming

Hey everyone! Just back from Vegas and wanted to share my experience and my pictures of the Las Vegas Open 2017, particularly the Horus Heresy events I attended. This year at LVO for the 30k scene there was a “Horus Heresy Mega-Battle” (giant apocalypse style game), and a 6-round 2,500 point tournament played on Saturday and Sunday. The Northwest 30k crew made it down to Vegas and had a blast playing 30k, meeting old friends, and making new ones, all while enjoying the 30k hobby. Warning – pic heavy! Check out the Horus Heresy action below!

Horus Heresy Tournament

I’ve been building and painting my 30k Mechanicum army since December 2015, and I got everything done that I needed to for a 2500 pt force. Back in April or so, a local gaming group here in the PNW set up a 30k tournament, and while I was still assembling and painting, I signed up knowing I wanted to play and it was a good motivator for me to get my force done and table-ready. I have to say it came right down to the weekend before getting everything finished and sealed and packed up into my fantastic new KR…

Transfers for 30k Mechanicum army + Tutorial

I finally finished the bulk of my 30k Mechanicum army and I am so stoked with how they finally turned out. I’ve been painting these guys since December of last year and saving them on my shelf to finish them by sealing – I dare not seal them in the winter time. I live in the Pacific Northwest United States, so much of the year it’s a little too cool and/or rainy to prime or seal. I get terrified when I need to go seal models because of the dreaded “fogging” effect. I also wanted to get some decals on…

30k Adeptus Mechanicum Krios Venator Assembly Tutorial

Hey everyone, been a while since I’ve posted, and really my hobby progress has largely been consumed since last Christmas with a Horus Heresy Mechanicum army I’ve been assembling and painting like mad. When I went to LVO 2016, I wanted to see all the great 30k armies and it really helped keep me motivated to get my Mechanicum army ready for next year’s LVO. Part of that force is going to be 2 Krios Venator tanks – I love these models. But not going to lie – those models are super tricky to assemble. Check out my tutorial inside…
