Custom Talos WIP and Space Hulk Mission List

Here is my WIP talos.  Trying to get him painted up for our map based campaign that is launching with a Space Hulk mission.
I still need to do a lot of painting.  He needs more tiger stripes on his legs, and abdomen .  I also changed up his hand weapon a bit, by adding the blade and spike out the back.  It is magnetized, as are the arms at the shoulders and the elbows.

 For the mission, there are NO FOC restrictions, and I know there are going to be a lot of  Terminators and Dreadnoughts.

So here is my list for the Space Hulk Mission:

Lord Vraesque     Huskblade, Soul-trap, Shadow Field.  Still no eyes.

Archon  Huskblade, Soul-trap, Shadow Field.   (Still a lot of painting to do on him.)

Haemonculus Ancient, Splinter Pistol, Agonizer, Casket of Flensing, Liquifier gun
Haemonculus Splinter pistol, Agonizer, Liquifier gun, Shattershard
6 Incubi.  The central planet of the map campaign is named Helios, so its on the banner.  Again, the Incubi are about 75% done.  Still some touch-ups and detail to add.
6 Incubi.  More painting to do yet.
Talos "Tony"  Chain Flails, twin linked splinter cannon, extra CCW.

 Talos "Brutus"  Chain Flails, twin linked splinter cannon, extra CCW.

  1. Holy cow! That tiger Talos looks disgustingly painful. Great job so far on him. I can only imagine how many times you've stuck your own finger while going to pick him up.

    How do you transport that thing without breaking any bits off?

    Ron, FTW

  2. Your DE look amazing! The Space Hulk Talos is awesome. I like the extra work on it.

  3. Damn, your Talos looks amazing! That has to be one of the best ones I've ever seen. I echo Ron's comments, it's too bad they're so hard to transport with all the pointy bits. It makes me want to paint some up. Too bad they compete for Ravager spots.

  4. Painting reminds me of my younger days...just teasing, beautiful though!! THAT IS ART!!!

  5. Thanks for all the comments.

    Ron, I actually haven't stuck myself yet, but I am sure I will at some point. I transport him in a toolbox lined with foam. Maybe I will do a post on that soon. He is rather tall, which is problematic on the battlefield. I am itching to try a webway portal list, for fun. Brutus and Tony will be a big part of that list.

    Telling your opponent they are root canal instruments adds a bit of psychological warfare to the game as well.

  6. That freaking Talos. I loved seeing him at the game. How's your scout force coming?

  7. Coming along. I am currently building 12 blaster armed trueborn to vaporize some detestable grey knights.
