Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii by ROBOPOPE Adeptus Mechanicus Skitarii by ROBOPOPE
A squad of Skitarii, the ground troops of the Adeptus Mechanicus. I'm building an army of these guys for a tournament coming up in April. I used a modified Hoff pattern ([link]) except I cast the legs and heads in resin so I didn't have to convert every single model. The shoulder armor is made of plasticard tubes, and the hoods are sculpted on. If these guys don't win best painted, I don't know what will!

I want those for my Grey knights warrior acolytes!!! Could you show us a simple step by step on the shoulder armor and the hoods? Pleaseee....

It's very simple. All you need are some 1/4" plastic tubes, a matched pair of Cadian arms and some green stuff. First, cut the shoulder pads off the Cadian arms, but leave the shoulders intact. Now add the head to the torso. Next, glue the arms onto the torso in the position you want, then cut the tube. You'll need two pieces that are about 1/4" long. Cut those in half so that now you have four half cylinders. Glue one piece on top of the shoulder, and then the next part goes over the first piece and should cover the shoulder strap of the torso. After the shoulders are set, sculpt the hood by rolling out a flat rectangle of green stuff about 1" long and 1/2" wide. Peel it off your work surface and then stick it to the head. Push the sides down and tuck the corners in under the head, then push in the sides and squeeze the back shut with your fingers. Trim any excess off the back with a pair of clippers and smooth it out with your fingers or knife. It takes some practice, but you'll get the hang of it.

I made them myself. Converted out of WFB High Elf archer legs and Cadian torso, arms and head. I shaved the shoulder pads off the Cadian arms and replaced them with plasticard tubing, sculpted some mechanical bits onto the face and then sculpted on a hood.
