Not much new on the Bloodthrister. I have painted the red on the head and hands as well as gotten some metal on to the axes. The horns are not quite done yet but I am getting there. I have also attached it to the base so that I don't risk as much hipping handling it. It still lacks some armour, the wrist and thigh guards as well as the belt buckle and the loin cloth. I originally planed to use the full armour set that comes with the model but the more I am working with it I am getting convinced that I should keep the armour to a minimum. After I am done with the head I will go on to the wings which will take forever as they are so big that I will have to paint them one side at a time and four applications to each, adding up to 16 sessions.

Finishing this model is actually quite timely as GW has finally decided to release some official models for the mechanicum. And as it where with the Knights, my home made kit bashes actually go rather well with the new models. The scitarii is a bit different but there seams to be other infantry that is more in line with my necron based versions. Also the Myrmidons seams to be in line with the dune crawler, so with similar paint jobs they might actually look good together. But first I think I will order some FW ad-mech models as I think they aesthetically beats the GW plastics.
Well, now that that is done I will see if I can get some more drive for the hobby...
