My Dark Mechanicus allies have slowly taken shape between all my other projects… and now they have a par of Magi! While I really love the look of the original Archmagos Draykavac and Adeptus Mechanicus Tech-Priest Dominus, they felt a bit too loyalist for my tastes. Ontop of this they didn’t have a number of the wargear options I had in mind for them modeled out the door. I used jetpack bits from Forgeworld Thallax Squads along with metal hook and drill bits I orederd directly from from Privateer Press. The base of the Dominus is far too small, so I’ve ordered a 50mm one to make him look better on the tabletop. Originally really didn’t like the Abyent, but after mounting it on a flying base and giving it a little love… I really do think it makes Draykavac look badass. I dropped the admech shield from the front, which was really obscuring the detail of the Draykavac model, and then added Chaos hooks and spikes from the CSM vehicle accessory sprue.
I’m really satisfied with the end result- it looks a bit more menacing and feral, but still has that Admech feel. These were a blast to put together and I’m excited to work on some other crazy Dark Mechanicus conversions. Stay tuned for my take on Myrmidons
