Warhammer 40,000 – Back in the day I loved to play Joust on the Atari. It was a silly game that was really hard to control, but you had dudes riding on space ostriches running into each other. Many hours of my youth were wasted on that game.
The Adeptus Mechanicus recently had their 8th edition codex released and it seems to be a pretty solid choice, which of course means Adeptus Mechnicus has found its way to my paint table.
To be sure the color scheme works I've painted this test model. A slight variation on the Mars scheme I replaced the cream colors with a medium gray. I'm really happy with the end result because it's a subtle difference between the gunmetal portions and the painted portions of the legs which feels more complete that taking the easy route and doing all metal.
Soon I should have more units for this force making their way to my table.
