Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

I've been using bits of the Skitarii kits for the last year for a variety of Inq28 gubbins so it actually felt a bit odd to build them as originally intended.

However, I think these look like an agreeably messed up bunch of radiation soaked cyborg killing machines. The basic colour scheme was picked up from the Magos Explorator  and liberal application of weathering pigments finished the grime.


  1. I love what you did here, they look totally up to the role. Great!

  2. Love the weathering effects on their cloaks which tie the pieces to the base very well!!!
