So, it seems thanks to Mr. Lemon the completion of my AdMech army actually seems feasible. You see, I hate painting. I mega-loath it. If I had a choice between staying awake for 24 hours with my only source of entertainment being a ball of yarn or painting for 10 minutes, I would seriously debate the choice. Mr. Lemon being the superb painter he is (dude, make a friggin' blog!) offered up his painting services in exchange for some Space Marine models I no longer wanted. After he acquired what he wanted, out of the kindness of his heart and just for the fun of it (and for some Tomb Kings I promised him /wink) he's continuing on in painting the AdMech so I don't have to (and so they don't look awful.) Below is the next round of completed AdMech models touched by his brush.
Now I've come to understand that some people look down on those who have others paint their models. Attempts in castrating their target's pride until it's nothing but a shriveled, lifeless, un-airbrushed form left in numerous pieces. I've also come to understand that I couldn't care less what those people think and that their mothers may be incredibly obese.
With that out of the way, here are the two Gants I purchased a while back:
As you can see: Awesome. The AdMech Symbols on the doors are an elegant touch I really enjoy. If you can tell from these pics the joints on the legs are also in the same form as the AdMech Symbol. I love fielding these two in battle.
Next up are a few more Praetorians with special weapons:
The detail on these guys' wiring and limbs is astonishing. The Meltagun's powercable especially surprised me with its detail.
Once again, fine detail is taken into account on every nook and cranny of these infantry. Below are the Servitors:
You may be asking yourself, who did that amazing basing and quickshading? That guy is amazing! Oh yeah; that's me, baby. I can glue little rocks and brush wood varnish like a pro.
Next up, one of four Tech-Priest Enginseers. If you click to enlarge, you'll notice the detail on his wrist screen is even taken into account:
This next fella is a Tech-Priest Magos with a Servo-Arm, Combi weapon (las-melta) and a Cult Mechanicus Power Axe:
And finally, the Techmarine. I swore I took a front and back picture of this guy, but apparently not... Either way, this piece is probably my favorite out of all of these. Mr. Lemon took a lot into account when painting this guy and it really shows.
"Stick 'em up!"
So, in short. Thank you Mr. Lemon. Thank you for saving me back-pain, time and frustration all so my models look as supreme as the AdMech deserve.
PS: Make a blog, sir.
PSS: Seriously, make a blog.
