An impasse from the Relic Knights stuff, but I'm bringing another robot, only that... different. A proper OldSchool robot ;)
That's it, an old Crusader Robot. I'm afraid I didn't keep the upper weapon, so I had to improvise using some weird bits...
Honestly, I still have no idea of what use I'm gonna find for this one. I currently have no plans of starting a Mechanicus Army (though I find the new minis unsettingly appealing...). Anyway, I just painted it red, it felt... natural.
I could use it as part of a Rogue Trader detachment, I guess (I must confess I don't have a Rogue Trader nor an escort, can you believe that? Shame on me!). In any case, if I ever embark myself on an Adeptus Mechanicus adventure, I can reuse this one just as it is ;)
The lame intent on painting compound eyes failed miserably, but I think the idea is interesting, so I'll keep trying on future minis. A scale comparison pic:
So well, just a standalone mini (for the moment), really enjoyable. Now to some more Relic Knights girls again...
