Mechanicum Thanatar Siege-Automaton #2 w/ Hellex Plasma Mortar

Happy New Year fellow Bloggers and Readers, thanks for dropping by. It was about this time last New Year when I completed his brother HERE. This mechanical beast is the Thanatar Class Siege-Automaton armed with the lobbing Hellex Plasma Mortar, large blast ordnance S8 AP2 fun-ness.
Here's the secondary weapon, the twin linked Mauler Boltcannon, which is a marine killing AP3.
Still loving the massive magazine and ammo feed belt.
This was the final model from the part-painted purchase I made at cost price as the old owner wanted to move on to another army and have made the scheme more Ad Mech than the original green US Army style the previous owner had started, but I liked some of the green bits, so chose to keep the torso and fists green.
Here he is with his brother, I matched the green / red scheme but changed a few panels to make them different, kind of makes me want to expand this army, they are mega cool models, but I really must concentrate on the unfinished models I already have! Still awaiting the Fire of Cryaxis so I can start using these in 40K proper.
That's all for now, hope you have plenty of miniatures to keep you busy this year! I certainly do. Cheers, Siph.


  1. Nice matching - I was looking for it before I read the text ! I have a plan for this year - we'll see how it goes...

  2. Interesting scheme, it really works! Looks great!

  3. Damn, those look better in pairs... shame the rules are delayed. Do you use the 30k rules in the meantime?

  4. Thx All, and Col H, games are few and far inbetween, haven't used them at all yet! Perhaps at WHW in March I may get to use them?

  5. Sweeeeeeeet. I love that color combo, they look fantastic!

  6. I really like the green and red combo - it's nice and unique. The subtle verdigris on the head part is cool too; a nice touch, but not so extreme it looks over done. Good work!


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
