Magos Makrotek Andall Balogh

Andall Balogh spendsquite some time on modifying and maintaining his manual augmentics. Despite him having mechanical hands for centuries now, he still prefers his left hand to wield his power axe. This is also the reason why Archmagos Drakavac gave him the name “Balogh” which means “the left handed” in Cyclotrathian dialect. Here is one of the many mysteries of Forge World: what exactly is this model? An Archmagos? Then the whole thing would be pretty small (compared to GW’s actual size of a Magos). But then again, the title of Makrotek is unique in the HH Books, which is why I think that this tiny fellow is indeed an Archmagos. Model-wise he is great as usual. FW never ...

Thallaxii Cohort II (completed)

And the second half of my second Thallaxii cohort is done. I intent to play them as tank hunter specialists hunting down heavy armour of the enemies of Cyclotrathe. These three more Thallaxii increase the number of battle-ready cybernetic warriors up to twelve in total. Time to provide them with another Magos to lead… ...

Thallaxii Cohort II (first part)

Cyclotrathe would not be a good forge world if it was not spitting out squad after squad of automata and cybernetic troops. So here we go with something that I do not really know what to tell about. Everything thats there to say has been said already in this post and in this post. So have fun with the pictures and fear the evil Cyclotrathians. ...

Magos Dominus of Cyclotrathe Felig Ember

Today we’re having a small Magos Dominus, half men half Cybernetica Cortex. This little fellow was one of my very first models being part of one of these bundles FW did back then. Now, after some paint and some time, he serves Archmagos Draykavac (who is yet to be released as part of my collection). Follow these links for pictures of the Thanatar-Calix and the Domitar battle automata. ...

Thanatar-Calix Siege-Automata of Cyclotrathe

By far my favourite model when considering the Thanatar range. Not really hunched but a bit more squat, the Thanatar-Calix is the bane of all Tanks and heavy armour. This particular Siege Engine was slightly converted in order to raise the right leg. This conversion was not too complicated and done in a few minutes: just cut of the pin within the knee joint that would normally hold the joint in place. Then I cut some of the creases into the round parts and in the end it looked like this. The result is a pose that looks as if the Thanatar briefly stops while taking a step in order to aim its Sollex Laser Cannon, only to continue its advance. ...

Vorax Automata Maniple (completed)

The Maniple is complete. Armed with a Rad-Cleanser the last Vorax Battle Automata just joined the maniple completing it finally. 07-2648/24.3 has an abnormally aggressive spirit (even by Vorax standards) and like to go in as close as possible. Thus the Magi fitted it with a Rad-Cleanser to support 07-2648/24.3’s aggressive fighting style. To see the other two Vorax Battle Automata with the serial numbers 07-2648/24.1 and 07-2648/24.2 just follow the links. ...

Vorax Maniple reinforced

Reinforcements have arrived, Magos! Vorax 07-2648/24.2 will be joining the Legio Cybernetica of Cyclotrathe on the battle field and build a maniple with its good old friend 07-2648/24.1. Honestly, there is not much to say about this Automata. It follows commands and dismembers the enemies of Cyclotrathe. What else would there be to know? ...

Domitar Battle Automata

And here he comes: The most angry Battle Automata in a “Hulk Smash!” pose also known as the Domitar. Despite the model itself being extraordinarily cool, the poses FW went for are simply boring. FW’s pose rather looks like the Domitar is in stand-by but not like a 4 metres tall combat machine crushing its foes with graviton hammers. This leads me to the inspiration of this pose: the HULK. I imagine this Automata’s pict lenses scanning its enemy while hauling its fist off to strike. I really like the Domitar model. ...

Thallaxii Cohort I (repaint, first part)

Also my Thallaxii have not been spared from getting some more paint and decals. Back in the day I painted six Thallaxii which had a more brassy look (compare here) but with the reasons explained here, I decided to also revamp those fellows. Now they are much darker (how fitting) and officially recognisable as members of the Taghmata Cyclotrathe. ...
