Hello everyone! Here's an update on the Waaagh! Black'eart conversion (yes I'm still working on it ;)). Four Red Corsair boys are now done. Well, they are snap fit models so it wasn't that hard to put them together. I might give the bare headed a bandana of some sorts or even an eye patch, just to emphasise the pirate part a bit (without over doing it).
The orks stand on Dark Art's sci-fi deck bases to make it look like their in a spaceship hunting for loot. Again the bases are of excellent quality!
I've also worked on Huron's pet squig:
The squig is really a lovely little model and it looks so much better than the regular ones GW has released. If you're interested, he's from a cute little vignette called the Chase. Anyway, I'm not really sure if he should stand on that space marine helmet. Should I keep it?
In other news, I'm painting up a Skitarii Ranger to test the colour scheme! Here's a WIP shot:
Looks pretty good so far methinks :) I really need to get used to all those fiddely bits these guys have! Phew! Great care is needed when you clip them off of the sprue! Needless to say, they look really awesome in real life!
Thanks for looking guys! Till the next update.

After some thought I decided to hop in the bandwagon and start a small 500-ish pts allied force of Skitarii. I really like their designs and I've always found these tech nerds from Mars interesting. With this new addition to my ever growing horde of plastic men (not to mention my painting list), I want to drop/postpone my plans for a Lizardmen army. *sob* But no worries, the Temple Guards will get painted... eventually. Anyways, my plan with the Skitarii is to build and paint them in one go... after I finished some smaller projects first of course (like Waaagh! Black'eart and some Astral Claws stuff). Mordian7th's blog is my inspiration for this plan (he's assembling and painting his Imperial Fists army in one go too).
So, how are they gonna look then? Well, glad you've asked. I want to go with the scheme of Forge World Metalica. Here, have a crappy picture from the codex:
Hmm.. it does look familiar... oh right, my custom Space Marine chapter has almost the same scheme! (I want to revise that one though, I'm afraid it doesn't work that well on space marines...) The reason that I went for this colour scheme is that I didn't want to have another red army. There were some black schemes but I don't think they'd work on the tabletop. This will really draw attention on the table. I like it!
Like I said, there are things that need to be done first and I want to buy some more units for these guys, so you're not gonna see AdMech related stuff soon but somewhere in the near future. So watch this space!
