Doc Killingsworth

Doc is a fun character in the Iron Kindgoms/Warmachine world.  Serving as both ship's cook and surgeon, his stew was suspect and his presence made sailors fight beyond normally crippling injuries since they rather face an opponent injured than be subjected to "surgery."

High Exemplar Gravus

High Exmplar Gravus has some pretty nice concept art but I always felt the mounted sculpt was a little... stumbly?  Despite that I do like the sculpts.  There's a good amount of detail on the armor - slightly more than the standard exemplar model - but not too much so.

Nephilim Protector

I really like the aesthetics of the Legion Nephilim warbeasts and the Protector is no exception.  The large expanses of armor were a bit daunting at first but I wound up giving them a similar treatment as my Warmongers, but instead of the flat black inner armor I went with a very dark metallic.  I think the result looks great on this sculpt.

Vassal of Menoth

The Vassal of Menoth isn't one of the more exciting sculpts Privateer Press has released.  Then again, they're infinitely useful on the tabletop so maybe there's some sort of inverse correlation there.

Blighted Nyss Legionnaires

The Blighted Nyss Legionnaires are poster-children for how I grew unhappy with my Legion color scheme.  Technically speaking I was pleased with how my Legionnaires turned out.  But on the tabletop they just blended together in to a black and blue mass.  The color scheme - originally picked out to be cold and hard and evoke the Nyss' wintery homeland - wound up just not lending itself to pop on the tabletop.

Exemplar Errant

As much as painting ceremonial Exemplar armor can be tedious at times I really like way Exemplar look on the tabletop.

Saxon Orrik

I painted up Saxon to use as an RPG figure for a desert-flavored character in my Earthdawn game.  This required a replacement for his left hand which held a rifle that would be out of place in that game, and mounting on a smaller 25mm base which is easier to use on 1" grids the few times we actually use them.

Eiryss, Angel of Retribution

As interesting as the scenic base the stock Epic Eiryss is perched on is, it illustrates one of the biggest problem with pre-attached scenic bases.  None of my Protectorate models were mounted on anything resembling urban bases, so using eEiryss stock would mean the base not fitting in with the rest of my army.  It's not like I could toss some dirt and gravel around the bottom and call it done.... who puts a chimney in the middle of the wastes?

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Absylonia, the Terror of Everblight

Absylonia sports quite a bit of detail that takes painting well.  She's very similar to the Forsaken in that respect - made up of different design elements of different models.  It makes her relatively easy to paint as there's not really anything "new" to the Legion about her but the discord of her design stands out on the tabletop.
