Sector Mechanicus #7: Thermic Plasma Conduit variation

Sector Mechanicus Thermic Plasma Conduit variation

Admittedly, I haven’t been sure what to call this post, as in most ways it’s simply more Thermic Plasma Conduits, or a variation on them at most. I’ve simply assembled the “control panel” pieces using “mirror”-parts rather than the “opposite” side, thought he kits are obviously designed to fit together any way you like. I’ve also used some offcuts from the damaged conduits I created recently, as well as a spare pipe/fan piece from the other kits.

Still, it makes for an interesting enough little variation on the theme, and can be used as a transitional piece to the pipes/conduits I’ll be painting up in a similar cream/white scheme later on. I’m happy with it as it’s diffferent enough to be interesting but still low-key enough to not overwhelm models on the tabletop.

  1. This looks great and I like the contrast between the dirty metals and the cream colored parts. Did you use some crackle paint on those parts? The effect is really nice and makes it look good and damaged which is perfect for 40k.

    • I painted it metal im much the usual way, then painted it with PVA – which makes the crackle medium/paint… crackle more. Then I mixed some crackle medium with the paint and paid it down. I should do a little tutorial on this stuff sometime. Maybe a Death Guard Rhino so it’s got a lot of flat surface to see what’s happening…

      • It is an excellent technique for Nurgle or really Warhammer 40k in general. Everything should be old and worn out in that universe to some extent. I think writing up a guide would be great when you have the time ๐Ÿ™‚
