Archmagos Rexx Berion-Hoss
Rexx Berion-Hoss is an Archmagos of the Adeptus Mechanicus, and a collector of rare automata. He caters to Planetary Governors and the inquisition, and is very much in demand for his ability to craft and/or locate the finest automated bodyguards, sniffers and assassins.
His Primary mind is located in his torso, surrounded by a tangle of servo skulls, backup memory, logic stacks and and cyborg entities feeding him sensory information and connecting him to the Noosphere. His secondary mind is located at the top of his neck, which is used primarily for interacting with lesser beings.
Started this project last fall. It is a commission but taken with a little more creative license than normal. I used many bits from the Belisarius Cawl kit, with the addition of some of my favorite dark eldar parts, and a nice assortment of servo skull and servitor heads. I painted him using NMM techniques, airbrushing and weathering powder amongst the robes for the dusty feel.
That’s some great execution. The extended neck gives a nice balance to the length of the magos and naturally draws the eyes up to the face- I find with Cawl, your eyes get lost in the details- his interesting appendages wave in front of his human bits, demanding attention.
Here your eyes are pulled up out of the tangle of machinery and skulls, giving a much more sweeping and imposing dynamic to the figure- without increasing the bulk significantly!
Thanks, I was trying to simplify the lines of the model while retaining the baroque detail, in a way he is a sequel to the Autorelictor.
