Blessings of the Omnissiah: Triaros Armoured Conveyers

Wow, i was on a proper painting bender when i knocked out these guys!! These two awesome tanks have been in my 'To-Build' box for ages, and quickly skipped the que when my newly completed Myrmidon Secutors needed a ride. 

I'm so in love with these models, everything about them is awesome! From the cog's in the engines, to the amazing shock prow at the front, and a tonne of coggy icongography, it looks like a crazy steam punk train! AV14 at the front is a big billy bonus as well!

I used the airbrush to create the shading on the hull of the Triaros. Weathering powder was applied after that.

This is the power core. Plenty of oxidisation effect was applied here. I'm sure whatever freaky power source is locked up inside it will do strange things to the metal.

The Triaros is no push over either. Its armed with a twin linked Mauler Bolt Cannon and two Volkite Sentinels, which can target independently of each other. Plus its ram attack counts as AV15 due to its Shock prow! A pretty bad ass transport if you ask me.

The Triaros is rather huge! Here's a size comparison with a Myrmidon Secutor.

Unlike recent posts i did take the time to snap a few WIP shots this time. This was taken after i finished  the airbrushing on the first Triaros:

Which quickly escalated to prepping the second!

A word to the wise: when painting Machanicum tanks, make sure you paint the pieces separately. Theres so much detail on them, i think you'd struggle to get it all if you painted it assembled.

More soon!

  1. Hamsters in wheels. Hamsters on 'slaught.

    That's the secret power source for these things. So the weathering should be mostly rodent pee.

    Great lookin' model.

  2. Interestingly enough, the side doors (if you mount the hatch middle vertically) works well as the split in the center of the mechanicus symbol.
    I'm just gutted that my skitarii have no transport options.....
