Captain Bartolo Montador

As Privateer Press Weekend at DieCon 8 was being planned, the organizers approached some of the local painters with an idea to give away models as door prizes and as an overall prize over the weekend. I had enough on my plate that I had to finish before DieCon that I couldn't do too many figures, but I did agree to paint Broadsides Bart here.

Morvahna the Autumnblade

I painted Morvahna up to give away to a local circle player a few years ago.  I spent most of the time working on the wet blends on her cloak - everything else seemed to come together quickly. Morvahna's flesh was done in all P3 paints in an effort to experiment & practice using them and I'm happy with how they came out. They're smoother than some of the other female skin tones I've done before.

Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios

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.

Reclaimer

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 seems to turn out poorly. The result is subtle but present, which was what I was going for so I'm happy with it. On the down side the highlighting on the teal trim of the stole doesn't show up well, which is dissapointing.

Temple Flameguard

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 all soon afterwards.

Daughters of the Flame

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.

Wracks

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).

Choir of Menoth

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 what has become my standard paint scheme for the Protectorate, throwing in the accent color on their sashes since according to their fluff they're warcasters in training.

Knights Exmplar Vengers

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 is that the horses themselves came out far redder than intended.

Knight Exemplar Seneschal

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.
