Mechanicum - Some Kitbashed Myrmidons!
It started with the release of the Deathwing Terminator box set last year. I loved the look of the censer flail and the storm shields. I wanted to assemble some bodyguards for a Tech Adept in my Mechanicum army, but never got around to it.
It was fueled by the photos from UK Games Day last year. Lots of cool, enigmatic Mechanicum figures with absolutely no release dates.
It came to a head when WIP photos of the Myrmidon Secutors and Destructors appeared in White Dwarf (Dec or Jan issue), and the Myrmidon rules turned up in Horus Heresy - Massacre.
Here is a unit of Myrmidon Secutors, kitbashed from Deathwing Terminators, Necron Triarch Praetorians, Necron Warriors and a few others bits and pieces.
First, the Mrymidons, with their power axes, two volkite calivers each, and halved Mechanicum-symbol shields (with no "in game" effect)
And the Mrymidon Lord, wielding his censer flail (counts as power axe), a graviton gun, and a phased-plasma fusil.
I hope you like them. I'm excited about getting some paint on them - once I've finished my Titan, that is.
