Mordheim Mercenary Sprue Archer

This miniature was assembled from various pieces of the Games Workshop Mordheim Mercenary plastic sprue. The face seems to have turned out well but the miniature is hardly perfect. It's difficult to see the black picking on the fletching from this angle, but it's there. The leather vest is obscured by shadows caused by my lighting - I wasn't able to fix that while photographing the miniature.

Idrian Skirmishers

I'm very happy with how my Idrians turned out. I knew they were going to go into my Hardcore list for DieCon 8 (in 2009) so I really wanted them to look good. Unlike most of the Protectorate models, these had a lot of bare flesh to paint up and that's always a challenge for me.

High Paladin Dartan Vilmon

Vilmon was a fun sculpt to paint, but I had to keep his arms separate until after painting was complete or I wouldn't have been able to get to this face and upper chest.  More than anything else though I was pretty happy with his base.

Paladins of the Order of the Wall

The Paladin of the Order of the Wall was too interesting a sculpt to pass up, even if it's not quite as useful in-game as some of my other options. It was fun to paint up and looks great on the table. It's also recently been used as a battle-chaplain of Morrow in the Witchfire Trilogy. Sweet, sweet irony.

Deliverers

The Deliverers were one of the units I picked up and painted early on, but I only ever bought 6. I didn't see the need to play more than that in Mk I, and in Mk II I usually fielded other units anyway.

Holy Zealots

As one of the most annoying unit to face in Warmachine, Zealots have a special place in my heart. These little grenade-chuckers are just so useful. I painted these guys up right after my battlebox and show a lot of experimentation with the color scheme I assigned to my army. They're painted to a nice tabletop standard -- I would have driven myself nuts trying to perfect each and every one of them.

Stonechild (Conversion)

I typically prefer working with pewter miniatures over plastic ones, but for my first attempt at a fairly extensive conversion the plastic WotC uses on their D&D Miniatures was a good start. I actually picked up a couple of Stonechild miniatures just for conversions for Earthdawn obsidimen. The pose isn't as interesting as the Chainmail sculpt and seems more compact, but considering how rare it is to find miniatures to pass as obsidimen you learn to deal with what you have.

Human Death Cleric

This miniature is a converted Human Death Cleric from the old Wizards of the Coast Chainmail line. The original miniature (shown in the last image below) carried a heavy scythe which I replaced with a sword and shield. The shield was graciously donated by a Human Shadow Priest from the same line and army as the Death Cleric and the sword was from an old Ral Partha Half-Elf Ranger (also pictured in the last image) I've had sitting around for way too long. I had other options to choose from, but most were far too large for this miniature.

Dwarven Hammer Priest

This is another of Chainmail's two-dimensional sculpts - the Hammer Priest was a member of the Mordenguard faction. I picked this one up cheap from the local shop after the game went under since I didn't have many dwarves to use in rpgs. Eventually a player requested it for their character, so it made its way to my painting area.

Half Elf Sorcerer

This miniature is the Half-Elf Sorcerer from the Talos faction in Wizards of the Coast's now defunct Chainmail game. They put out a plastic re-sculpt for their D&D Miniatures which looks similar, but this is one of the original metal versions. This miniature was originally painted to be used as a Zheol-Jhe in Misguided Games' Children of the Sun RPG. He was a spear-wielding Kwai Chang Caine type of character - a healer/protector.
