Blessid is the Omnissiah

"From the moment I understood the weakness of my flesh, it disgusted me. I craved the strength and certainty of steel. I aspired to the purity of the blessed machine."

I'm on a hefty Kill Team hobby-streak, and have been for the last year or so. I've actually done quite a bit of work on various teams, and I thought I'd finally get round to sharing it here. 

I've been working on a Mechanicus Kill Team. Problem is, I don't find the Hunter Clade very inspiring. I know they're pretty good ruleswise, but I felt like I wanted something more - the Hunter Clade feels a bit like a "slightly better than human" team to me, and I wanted to convey the weirdness that is AdMech - big robots, strange combat-automatas, etc. 

I know it's a bit of a stretch, but the closest thing I could find to what I wanted was actually Hive Fleet (Tyranids). They have big guys, smaller warriors and Synapse rules, which convey noosphere communication pretty well, IMO. 

Without further ado - here they are. They are still in progress, but the basic concept is pretty much locked down, and just need final detailing and greenstuffing.
