Completed: Dark Mechanicus Skitarii Kill Team

I had such a fun time converting these guys I just wanted to try them out on the table as soon as possible, so I took them along with me to pick up the new Shadow Wars rule book (released today) which meant a furious afternoon of painting yesterday. Within three hours I was able to get these guys up to a good gaming standard, using the usual base/wash/highlight method with a few technical paints to hide imperfections. I'm so impressed with how they look given the quick paint time I may end up transferring this faster style to my Orks in the future!

Thankfully their in-game performance was better than my shaky camera skills, and I bested a small Harlequin kill team thanks to pinning, frag grenades and finishing them off in combat (while they were on the ground of course!). It was quite scary seeing how quick the harlequins moved around, I hope to try them out in game soon as well!


  1. They look great bud. A perfect example of your painting style even though they were done quickly. They look really original and different and each one has a ton of personality.

    1. Cheers! It reminds me of procrastinating as a student and getting all my work done the night before an assignment was due!
