Adeptus Mechanicus "counts as" Sentinel Part 4

Adeptus Mechanicus "counts as" Sentinel Part 4

Yes, yes, the slacking continues.....
Got these to this stage about 2 week ago, not happy with the photos, as they look better in person but I have a light booth coming via Kickstarter. Hoping that helps a bit :-)

So the question I am struggling with is do they need additional Detail?
I considered either hand painted or stenciled hieroglyphics along the "carapace", or some of the nice Adeptus Mechanic details via their awesome decal sheet. but honestly stuck.

All 3 from each side.

Carapace shots

Comments and Feedback welcome!


  1. Those look fantastic, man! Beautifully done - I think any further carapace lettering might detract from the overall look a bit.

  2. I agree, the stone work is fantastic and if you added decals it would become noisy. If you wanted to add more pop maybe add a bit more extreme highlighting to the top edge of the carapace. For me this has helped break up large areas from a distance. Great work!

  3. Thanks!
    A couple people suggested a little decal or freehand at the back of the carapace, where it curves up..
    Going to see if I can't sketch out a "cyber-scarab" and see how it looks.
