Redeemer

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.

Blessing of Vengeance

I don't want to think about how long it took me to paint my character jacks, but they're finally done and ready for the tabletop. Unfortunately Blessing lost a few of his cooler abilities in MkII, but he's still a solid jack with Severius.

Strider Deathstalkers

Even though they suffer the "2D" affliction that's affected many of Privateer's recent sculpts, I do like the Deathstalker models. Plenty of cloak to play with blending cloth on and enough different surfaces that even a monochromatic scheme can be executed without looking boring.

Blighted Ogrun Warmonger War Chiefs

Enough time had past since I painted my initial Warmongers that I was worried about being able to match their skin tones, but the War Chiefs turned out pretty close when I was done with them. That's one of the biggest hurdle I've come cross as my Legion army grows - matching blends I did on previous models.

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.

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.

Raek

I wish that the Raek was as good in-game as it was as a model. I love this sleek, bitey little guy but I don't see him hitting the table very often. He receieved a much-needed boost in Mk II but I always seemed to spend his points on other options.

Teraph

Just like most of the other Legion models, Hordes fans either love the Terpah or they hate it. I tend to fall on the positive side myself. There's something about the sleek draconic look that I find visually appealing.

Typhon

Typhon proved to be a little more difficult for me to paint than even my Carniveans have, but I was able to get him done before GenCon 09. I wound up missing the Hardcore event I planned on fielding him in but that was different story...

Shredders

The Shredders were the first part of the Legion of Everblight battlebox that I decided to tackle. I figured that they were small enough that they'd be quick to finsih and I'd be able to see my intended color scheme to determine if I liked it. They became a template I would eventually follow on other beasts as my collection grew - light blue skin, bone carapace, and pink gums. Since Shredders are little more than walking mouths in Hordes, I wanted their toothy maws to be suitably prominent.
