Zanatorian Robowraith by Proiteus Zanatorian Robowraith by Proiteus

First things first the name ‘Robowraith’ is only a nickname, they soon be given a proper title so feel free to suggest a name for them as I’ll be running a poll tomorrow on my Deviantart page to decide upon what to call them.

I’m very grateful to ~deathsblades who came up with this conversion idea and helped me create the cloaks for them, sadly I couldn’t come up with a suitable model to represent the plaguebearers that would fit in with the rest of the army myself. So he assembled a mock up miniature and showed it to me, hes now working on his own mechanicus army.

Devwatch him to see his works: :icondeathsblades:

The robots themselves are made from a very durable material which makes them hard to damage and if you look closely at the blade you can see the poison I painted on it using the purple wash. They’ll represent plaguebearers and flayed ones.

I’m now working on a ninth model for my 1750pt army a long with a ratling objective marker called sergeant Baggins lol.

Awesome work man, this guy looks GREAT. I love that you have finally decided to make something that uses mechadendrites, and the combination of the pose and the cloak really confers a sense of personality that the other models in your army REALLY lack. I think that you definitely need to expand upon this and make each of these guys look like they are fully self aware. Try doing lots of dynamic poses with them and work on making the cloaks billow. If you need help doing that I can explain how to do it for you, the key thing to remember is that you need to do the cloak in layers starting with a paper thin layer of puddy that is allowed to partially harden and then draped over a very thin wire skeleton of the cloak itself, which you will then sculpt over with subsequent layers of putty. Doing cloaks this way will allow you to make the cloaks look like they are really billowing in the wind and allow you to make them very frayed looking (A must for crazy evil robots.) on the edges, but its a 3-4 step process and can be a bit time consuming.

Again I like where you are going with these guys, though I would also suggest that you create a sickly green glow effect coming from within the cloak from some sort of exposed power core or something. This would explain the reason behind the cloaks and make them look more sinister. Also try hunching them over a bit more to make them seem a bit more sinister and skulking.

If I had to suggest a name for these guys I'd go with "Forsaken" personally. It sounds cool, matches their look, and suggests that they have a greater level of depth than the rest of the "BZZZZT I AM A ROBOT" guys you have in the army.

As always keep up the good work.

In terms of fluff and representation, is it something that would've been created in stages? If the original machine was made, but later needed repair or upgrade, would you see different shading as more or less oil and grime or rust? If it was created and forgotten that wouldn't happen, which may fit with the tattered cloak.

What did you use to build it? Is it just copper wire with putty overtop?

Fantastic! I think that would fit greatly as a flagalent from the inquisition codex or maybe something for a custom adeptus mechanicus codex.

It looks exelent. Pretty scary to see in the battlefield. Could it be a Bloodletter?
