So I decided to start on an admech army so i got to my local store and first bought a henchman crusader and a techpriest I will buy some more minis when I have time and the money but here are already my first shots of my tech magos hope you like him

here you can clearly see that I have removed the shield and filled up the lag it was quite tricky do

here you can see my back pack hath to greenstuff it to the model to make it fit wel if somebody can post a tutorial of how to make greenstuf cables I can put some greenstuf cables from the backpack towards head like fw model
my future psycannon I know it doesnt look like one but I just like the flamer twinlinked plasma combo
together with my converted axe.

I still have one little qeustion for you can somebody put a tutorial online how to make (not to bulky) servo arms please I am desperate thanks for looking I can andswer your qeustion comments and tips are welcom

wow it is looking pretty nice, but for servo arms, mabie try using spru, cut it up, seen someone do it before and it comes out pretty nicely, also try using sentinel bits, like from the legs it looks mint when its done properly

Happy Converting!

servo arms...hmmm

well, my suggestion, for the arm itself, Buy a guitar string (either the low E string off a guitar or the A string off a bass) and, cut off the right length you want to be the arm, then do it again, so you have 2 pieces of string.

Glue them together and then coat them in glue (to fix them in the position you wish), this gives you a tentacle style arm (think dr octopus).

I've seen it done before in an Iron warriors army. It stops the arm looking bulky and heavy.

The Iron warrior with this design in question was the Lord who had 4 of these arms.
