Legio Cybernetica Deathwing Army

Postby DoctorThunder » Sun Dec 28, 2008 5:30 am

I've been looking forward to doing this commission for a while. Those of you long in the tooth know that during the Horus Heresy both sides had access to armies of robotic soldiers, and while the concept was cool the GW models were pretty poor, so I've decided to reinvent the look of the robots using GW parts.

Well, since the Heresy the knowledge has been lost to men, but certain first founding legions, such as the Dark Angels, still maintain limited stores of these irreplaceable artifacts from a lost age, and in times of dire need, the Chapter's ForgeFather will lead these constructs to war.

This army uses the Deathwing Rules from the Dark Angels Codex. The Forgefather model counts as Belial, while the robots count as squads of Terminators. The Robots are built using the toes from a Sentinel, the legs from a stealth suit, terminator arms, and the torso from an Epic 40K Knight from the Epic 40K starter box set (which has been out of print for a decade, so getting 30 of thoe together was no small task)

Right now I've got Belial and one squad assembled. When I'm done there will be six squads of terminator robots.

Enjoy

Blimey, Doc, do you ever stop??? 8O

Love those "pin head" termie bots!
Their simplicity works really well, contrasted with the mad mech bloke.

Can't stop, can't stop the doc. :D

Dunno. I don't think the guy I'm building these for has decided how he's going to paint them yet. :)
