Mage Knight Brass Golem

I painted this figure up a few months before I started playing Warmachine as a test piece. I wasn't sure how easy it would be to use colors such as green on a large flat metallic area like a robot's body and wanted to get a feel for it before I decided if I'd be able to do a Warmachine warjack. While the golem is hardly a work of art, it was good enough for a first attempt to convince me that I'd be able to do more mechanical miniatures with a little practice.

Ral Partha High Elf Irregular Conversion

"Mira" was as originally a Ral Partha elf that came in a blister with four others labeled as High Elf Irregular Officers. I had purchased the blister specifically for one of the other miniatures in it, but my wife picked this one out to serve as the base for her first RPG character.

Lady Aiyana and Master Holt

I'm a big fan of the Aiyana and Holt. On top of being a solid unit on the tabletop, they're some of my favorite sculpts in the Warmachine miniature line.  They're not swamped with accessories, but they're great sculpts and fit right in with the look and feel of the Iron Kingdoms.

Rhupert Carvolo, Piper of Ord

After an one-armed, no-handed Piper lead my troops to victory enough times I decided it was time to reward the faithful musician with an assembly and paint job. My first instinct was to paint him in a similar color to my Menite army, but I decided to go with something completely different instead - if I don't paint something non-Menite every once in a while I tend to burn out.

Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew

I started up the Swamp Gobbers while I was painting Rineholdt a while back. Although they're pretty basic the figures have a lot of character and were a lot of fun to paint.

Gudrun the Wanderer

I painted Gudrun towards the end of 2008 as a diversion from the Legion models I had been rapidly turning out. His color scheme was primarily chosen to let me test out P3's Ordic Olive color, which I used on his cowl.

Totem Hunter

Despite how much I disliked the stock pose on this miniature I wasn't willing to spend the time required to do a complete re-pose on a figure I wasn't expecting to field too often to begin with.  So I decided to work with the stock pose as best I could.

Alten Ashley

Even though I only really use Alten with my Protectorate forces for mixed games, and even then almost primarily in Mk I, I really like the model and wanted to get it painted. He really captures the 'dirty old hunter' look and the bell-shaped riffle barrel is a nice touch.

Kell Bailoch

Kell was painted up pretty quickly in a color scheme that would fairly label him a Browncoat. I can't say it's my best work but I'm more than a little unhappy with how it photographed. Results like this are making me seriously consider revamping my photography set-up again.

Ogrun Bokur, Mercenary Solo

In early 2006 I was getting pretty burned out on painting Protectorate colors over and over and over and over again. There really wasn't as much experimenting with new models as there was putting the same colors in the same locations on the same miniatures repeatedly and I needed a break. So after one of our weekly gaming sessions I told one of the players that if he left his Bokur behind I'd paint it for him.
