Blessings of the Omissiah - Thallax

For me the Thallax are the core troops for a Mechanicum army. At toughness 5 with 3 wounds they're hard as nails and pack some cool weapons, and Jet Pack infantry to boot! For these 2 squads I equipped them with a Multi Melta!

The power cores on their baacks are quite cool, so i tried a little OSL to make the models pop a bit.

The grim blank faceplate's of the Thallax are equally cool. I applied some water effects to make it a bit shiny!

I've seen cork used on bases for years, but this is the first time that i actually tried it! I wanted a blasted wasteland style base for the Mechanicum so the cork was perfect for a cracked earth effect. A few layers of weathering powders finish off the effect nicely.

Got another 9 of these to get on with - better get building!

  1. Gorgeous! Really dig the color scheme, and the basing is fantastic!

  2. Cheers lads - I'm really enjoying the look of them. 9 more to go!
