Hey everyone

Well my collection of Mechanicus units is now sufficient that it could actually field an army, if I am a little cleaver about how I use my models.

As with many things I kind of started from the top down, having LoW models well before I got around to actual troops and HQ. I am still collecting, and have a couple to paint up, but it is filling out slowly.

Magos/Arch Magos FW model

2x Castellans which can function as the Heavy choice in 40K to replace the dopy Kastelan models

Squad of Skitarii, which function as Adsecularis Covenenat in 30K

Kataphron Destroyers, which I use as Mermidon Destructors in 30K

I don't think any of these is stretching reality too much to represent their alternative timeline units.

Magaera and Styrix Knight Titans Which are a single LoW choice in 30K and can be a LoW singularly in 40K
And a Warhound Titan which also functions as a LoW for either

So the main gaps is those models that don't jump easily across between 30K and 40K

I have a Thanatar which doesn't really have an equivalent I can use in 40K
A Unit of Vorax which also don't really have a 40K equivalent
A Unit of Strider Dragoons which don't have a 30k equivalent
And a unit of Dune Striders, which I could possibly run as 30K Krios Tanks, but that is a bit of a stretch and I plan to get a couple of Krios anyway eventually.

This army has been mainly collected from a modelling point of view so it still has holes, but AdMEch are powerful in both games so they seem to cope pretty well.

I will add a modelling diary specifically for the AdMech this week and link it above.

thoughts or advice always welcome
