It's Waitangi day here in NZ which is a public holiday. I decided to celebrate the birth of a nation by spending the day in the garage, working on my conversion. A true patriot! (albeit a naturalized NZ citizen and a filthy immigrant really). I processed all the feedback from my previous post and made some fairly drastic changes and additions.
The abdomen needed the most work and was built mainly out of a Bloodletter torso glued back to back with a Deathmark torso.
I can't remember what the gun on the end of her bottom is. Something Necron Destroyery I think. I also don't know what gun she is holding in her hand. I just liked the look of it.
But of course Ad-Mech are not Necrontyr and dabbling in forbidden arts has always attracted the denizens of The Warp. The perversions of Chaos would inevitably seep in, corrupting their ideals of pure intelligence unhampered by emotion. What rough beast, its hour come round at last, skitters towards Bethlehem to be born?
I needed a suitably apocalyptic base to go with it. I had a decent spare in the form of the Roboute Guilliman model. This was chopped down to size so that it would fit on a large infantry base. It is perhaps too small but I have no idea what this model is supposed to be in 40k terms. Some sort of Sicaraian Infiltrator? A corrupted Cryptek? A daemonic Datasmith? I don't know and I refuse to be constrained by a codex. It is what it is.
The base was full of holes so I started delving for parts in the bits box. Skulls seemed to be the appropriate flora. Yes, yeeess! My base depicts a broken Imperial eagle and a dead CSM. All it needed was dead Elfs! Some no-good, Mary-Sue, cheating, sanctimonious Elves! So I started rummaging and I looked and I looked but I couldn't find any dead (and inanimate) Eldar at all. Goddamnit Games Workshop why do you never see a fucking Elf Skull?! You do bird skulls and Genestealer skulls. You do frickin skulls for races of aliens that don't even have any rules and are barely mentioned in the lore at all! This is a travesty!! I guess they look too similar to human skulls and the pointy ears are only made of gristle.
Then it hit me. High cheekbones, pointy ears, sinuous body...
I have depicted Elves as the frickin master race.
