I am not planning to have many living models in the Steam Wars Mechanica army, just a few unscruplous types who ultimately control the automotans for their own nefarious objectives.
One of the models I really like was a professor type model from the Dystopian Legons range along with his Igor style man-servant carrying a masssive contraption of some sort.
Having seen the professor on screen blown up larger than life, I really think I need to paint his face better, eyes and teeth required!
The man-servant model makes a good Drone Controller or engineer, pefect for keeping the automotans in full working order.
One has to like multi use models. These Aberrant Games robots can be used in Rogue Stars and double up for Medium AP armed bots in my Mechanica force for Steam Wars.
These have been modified a bit by removing one forearm and mounting the heavy weapon at the elbow.
These were provided courtesy of Tony from Aberrant Games from their Rezolution range.
This old Games Workshop model is going to be used as a Sniper Bot for my Mechanica force. By adding a Spotter Drone, it will make a sniper team for use in Steam Wars.
Being a Marvel fan, I thought I would borrow The Winter Child model from Dust range and paint him up in Iron Man colours for my Mechanica force.
I removed the star from his chest and some other unnecessary Soviet iconography.
He also has several choices of base, two flying bases and a nearly finished standard 25mm base.
I picked up these Crooked Dice drones at Salute a few months ago, which should be good as Repair Drones.
Literally painted silver with grey claws and a red dot, then inked.
Over the last few weeks I have built and painted up twenty more Automotan infantry. That makes a total of lots, with still some more to do.
Some of the models will be made as specific crew for some heavy weapons, I think I have four more that can be made without weapons, so can be converted to hold some controllers of some sort.
Things have been a bit slow with my King Buggy conversions as I had to find some larger magnets to fix inside the wing section.
I have now rebuilt the wings and am pretty much ready to rebuild the fuselage and undercoat them. I may paint the inside of the cockpit before I glue the fuselage together and then mask the cockpit to spray the rest.
