Awesome!  8)

I especially love the dark grey colour scheme; should I ever do Tau, this would be my inspiration...

Yep, they're fantasstic, both in conception and execution.

A treat for the eyes, thanks for sharing.

Thanks all, this is one of my favorite ongoing projects. I'm going to eventually add a human, kroot, and all the Stagrave alien heads :)

I still have the comics but couldn't answer a plot point or character question but have fond memories

the painting and mix of characters is super-outstanding (is that a word?)

very very nice

Love it. I did something like this to a lesser degree with skaven and lizardmen heads on tau bodies.
I love the spider one. I'd love to see some sci-fi spiders with wings, Vespid proxy ;)

They look awesome, as does everything your brush work graces us with. Always excited to see what new work you kindly share with us. Also a great idea with a charmingly eclectic selection of figures looking forward to seeing what you add to it next.
We haul ours to kick theirs.

That grey has a very subtle purplish touch to it; was that a mix, or is it an existing colour?

Thank you all, appreciated.

It is indeed a purple grey, a custom mix probably using Vallejo colors. I made a small dropper bottle full a couple years back and don't really have a recipe- which is unfortunate, as I'm running low!

For this month's "Servo Skull Saturday" I finished up a rather chunky metal skull that was offered up several years back in a Facebook genestealer fan group. Its a pretty big one, looks to be from a Patriarch.

Lovely new additions displayed in some great scenes.

It looks very similar to a colour that I made accidentally whilst 'weathering' a new fence in the back garden (true, I tell ya!).
It happened when I mixed black and white with some burnt umber to attempt a brown tinge and it came out very similar to that. Worth giving it a go.

I acquired the set of Adeptus Mechanicus from the 'Skulz' program many years ago, shortly after they were released, around the year 2000. I had done some painting for a GW Outrider, and in exchange for that he was able to acquire a set at one of the GW conventions. Its taken since then to get them all painted! I decided to do the unreleased servitors I had acquired at the same time.

They look outstanding one and all, you really did them justice (like all the other figures you've graced us with really) but I am particularly enamored of the reds, they came out splendidly. Thanks for sharing as always.
