Adeptus Mechanicus - Sydonian Skatros

Hello Readers, thanks for dropping by. The latest addition to the Adeptus Mechanicus ranks is a Sydonian Skatros, an augmented sniper created by the Adeptus Mechanicus.
According to Warhammer.com "Sydonian Skatros is a sinister cybernetic sentinel, stoic and unmoving until the moment an enemy strays into range of their huge rifle. Mechanical, stilt-like limbs allow them to traverse hazardous terrain and survey the environment, shrouded by a smog of incense-exhaust. With protocol-driven precision and an advanced scanner known as the Achillan Eye, they lock on to their foes’ weak points and unleash pinpoint fire that sows panic and agony – all the better for eroding enemy morale."
These can be armed with one of two long-barrelled guns – a Radium Jezzail, which fires radioactive bullets that pierce armour and poison flesh, or a high-powered Transuranic Arquebus.
Each weapon comes with its own bionic loader-arm, as well as an ammunition pack for the Skatros' belt, which sports a holstered pistol for closer foes.
This sniper is a completely different silhouette from the other Ad Mech snipers, a Skitarii Ranger armed with a Transuranic Aquebus. A delicate miniature, will be a pain to transport without bending any aerials. I added a two pence piece as a weight under the base to provide stability.

Cheers, Siph (10pts)


  1. Adding weights to bases is a good idea. I used to regularly even weight 'ordinary' resin minis with washers, as a carelessly wafted rulebook could literally blow away a DKK rifle squad.

  2. As soon as I saw this model, my firs tthought 'was that will be fun to store & transport'!

  3. Such an unusual miniature - great work on it! Weighting the base was definitely a good call.


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