Tech-priest Manipulus - Theta 7 Acquisitus kill team complete

Another one dredged up from the mists of the backlog today. Some of you may recall that back in February I pledged the Theta 7 Acquisitus kill team for Squaduary. I did manage the squad of Infiltrators but didn't complete the tech-priest Manipulus that comes with the set. Well, I dug him out a couple of weeks ago and got him finished!

In all his chunky glory.
It was quite refreshing to paint up another tech priest and I have a bit of a soft spot for this model. It's still not well liked within the community; but I find his rotund form rather charming. It seems a little bit tongue-in-cheek to me and hearkens back to a time when Games Workshop didn't take themselves quite so seriously.

He's covered in fun details. Note the little floppy disc.
The scheme is my usual green/brass/pink which matches the rest of my ever growing forces. It will be nice to be able to play around with a new HQ, even if his abilities look a little sub-par on paper. Perhaps that extra 6" of shooting range will pay dividends? I'm not convinced. Still I'm taking him up to Warhammer World for a game at the end of October so I guess we'll find out.

Mechadendrites look pretty cool from this angle.
So, a fun little project completed just in the nick of time for Dreadtober. Speaking of which, I've pledged a Leviathan Dreadnought for my Night Lords Legion. Hopefully there will be another post this week full of delicious progress!

  1. Yes mate, at first I didn’t like it, but the similarities to Baron Harkonnen from Dune and the Floppy Disc on his belt as Archeotech is great!

  2. I think it looks very well and glad to see your Squaduary model got finished. ;)
    I am a fan of the base model in general.
