Eiryss, dubbed the Soulless Elven Hooker by those in the know, was originally purchased to use as a character when I started re-running Privateer Press’s Witchfire Trilogy again. Eventually as we started playing Warmachine she transitioned to a wargaming piece. I had always wanted to have this miniture leaping off of something when I based Read more about Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios[…]
The Reclaimer was actually a pretty quick figure to paint considering a vast majority of it was either black or metallic and there was very little exposed flesh. Still black can be a tricky color to paint. I went ahead and went the wet blending route since every time I try to layer black it Read more about Reclaimer[…]
I painted the Temple Flameguard up during a business trip in 2006, back when taking fluids on an airplane wasn’t restricted. They were done with what is at this point my standard Menite process. They flew home with me just a little short of complete but I finished the shields and spears and attached them Read more about Temple Flameguard[…]
The Daughters of the Flame, aka Menoth’s Angels, were a relatively dainty unit to paint compared to the bulky knights and spearmen that are more common in the Protectorate army. But they fit together well and once I got them on my painting desk it I was able to work through them relatively easily. Read more about Daughters of the Flame[…]
Despite the amount of skin that I had to paint I was able to work through these guys pretty quickly. They also gave me a good opportunity to work on using the P3 flesh line (Idrian, Khador, Midland, Rin).
With the exception of the Mangled Metal format (which doesn’t allow infantry, just jacks), I don’t think I’ve ever fielded an army without the choir. They’re just too good and too utilitarian for their points not to. So since they hit the table so often, they definitely needed to get painted. I started of with Read more about Choir of Menoth[…]
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.
