Skulz Adeptus Mechanicus Set - Unreleased Servitors

I acquired the set of Adeptus Mechanicus from the 'Skulz' program many years ago, shortly after they were released, around the year 2K. I had done some painting for a GW Outrider, and in exchange for that he was able to acquire a set at one of the GW conventions. I guess Outriders could buy metal minis by weight at the time :)


I painted the Artisan many years ago as part of an LPL entry. Sadly, I picked a non-metallic-metal scheme and I wasn't so great at it then. The problem was trying to match that cartoony NMM for the rest of the set, years later!




I took the opportunity to finish up the two 'unreleased' servitors I acquired from eBay as well. Luckily I bought these several years ago, right before the Oldhammer era stuff started getting crazy expensive.

Genestealer Servo Skull

Up for this month's "Servo Skull Saturday" is a chunky metal servo skull I acquired in a Facebook Genestealer fan group several years ago. He's a big one... assuming from a patriarch.

Tau Xenos Kill Team

 I realized I haven't done a group shot of the "Alien Legion" style Tau force, as it now stands.

Wargames Atlantic parts.

3D print "Goodest Boy", Wargames Exclusive, Hydra Miniatures Worm Man with conversion work.

Hasslefree, with a little conversion (new gun) on the Scooby guy.


Straight GW.

Greater Goodest Boy

There's a funny little 3D printed 'Guard Pug' that has been going around the internet for a while. A friend wanted me to print one, and I ended up making a chihuahua version for him too.

I wanted to work on my 3D sculpting a bit, using Meshmixer,  and knocked out a 'Greater Goodest Boy' for my oddball Tau kill team. 




Here's the link the file on Thingiverse:

Xenos Servo Skulls

Continuing along with xenos servo skulls... this time an Ur-Ghul. I didn't give him an eyepiece, I decided it would have a sensor array of some sort.

Jalara, Assassin - Marduk

I enjoy coming across random challenges and contests on Instagram. They often prompt me to paint a mini that has been sitting around for years. This time it was the "Fabulous February Females" challenge.

I have dozens of cool female miniatures in the queue, so it was hard to pick. I settled on 'Jalara' from Tin Man Miniatures. She is from their Barsoom style setting... which usually implies scant clothing. Not sure if she is a proxy for a character from the John Carter series.

I also recently painted up the latest miniature from Hydra, the leader of the Imperial Faction... Marduk.

Jokaero 40K Xenos Acolyte

I painted up a Jokaero for the 'Inq28th' in February. I was pretty thrilled when GW released this guy many years ago... little did we know he would herald a bunch of Rogue Trader era stuff coming back into modern 40k. Also, I was never willing to spend a bunch of money on the old version!

Almost done painting all of the metal 2000s Inquistion acolytes and followers now. Just a bunch of gun servitors and the metal Stormtroopers!
