The Exempler Vengers took forever and a day to paint. They started out relatively quickly – the horse flesh and hair came together well but once I hit the armor (on both the knights and the horses) progress stalled. That said I’m still rather pleased with how the figures turned out. My only real complaint Read more about Knights Exmplar Vengers[…]
I wasn’t a big fan of the stock pose of the Knight Exemplar Seneschal figure. Extraneous back banners aside, there was just something about how it held its swords that didn’t work for me. So that meant breaking out the jeweler’s saw and some putty and making some changes. The first and most obvious change Read more about Knight Exemplar Seneschal[…]
Compared to the rest of the Warmachine warjack, the stock Devout pose is actually pretty dynamic. Unfortunately the Running Man thing doesn’t do anything for me so I decided early on to convert this miniature into a more static pose. Since I had a pretty large backlog on my painting desk I decided for the Read more about Devout[…]
I didn’t paint my Redeemer long after my first Revenger, but I still think it’s a big improvement. The purple players especially are much better here. I was still having problems with the metallic golds spikes though; that’s been a weakness of mine for a while.
This miniature sat unpainted in my army transport case for some time – I already had one painted Revenger and I didn’t field two often enough to need to get it down. Once I got closer to caught up on my Protectorate forces I decided to go ahead and paint it up. Looking at Read more about Revenger[…]
Unlike the Devout – which is on a similar chassis – the Dervish’s stock pose wasn’t too bad. The only issue was the height of the model. The sword in its left hand was meant to be vertical, but this made the piece higher than the foam tray I use to store my light jacks Read more about Dervish[…]
I don’t want to think about how long it took me to paint my character jacks, but they’re finally done and ready for the tabletop. Unfortunately Blessing lost a few of his cooler abilities in MkII, but he’s still a solid jack with Severius. This model came in more pieces than the other Protectorate Read more about Blessing of Vengeance[…]
I painted this Crusader quickly to match my first one. The quality isn’t as high as I could have managed, but I really just needed to get this one done so I could get it on the table. As far as posing goes, I decided to assemble this one as if he was in mid Read more about Crusader[…]
The Crusader was the last warjack I painted from my battlebox, and I think it turned out better than the lights. After looking over the Repenter and my first Revenger, the first thing I decided was to do away with the razor highlighting. It just wasn’t coming out as expected, so I moved on to Read more about Crusader[…]
I definitely prefer the ‘newer’ Menite heavy warjack chassis features on the Reckoner and Castigator to the ‘older’ Crusader-based chassis. The gentle curves of the larger plates make it seem less boxy and more organic.
