I painted this Crusader quickly to match my first one. The quality isn’t as high as I could have managed, but I really just needed to get this one done so I could get it on the table. As far as posing goes, I decided to assemble this one as if he was in mid Read more about Crusader[…]
The Crusader was the last warjack I painted from my battlebox, and I think it turned out better than the lights. After looking over the Repenter and my first Revenger, the first thing I decided was to do away with the razor highlighting. It just wasn’t coming out as expected, so I moved on to Read more about Crusader[…]
I definitely prefer the ‘newer’ Menite heavy warjack chassis features on the Reckoner and Castigator to the ‘older’ Crusader-based chassis. The gentle curves of the larger plates make it seem less boxy and more organic.
The Guardian was one of those models that say unassembled on my desk for so long that I wanted to get it finished just to have it finished. I’m not a fan of back-banners of any type in Warmachine or Hordes so I left them off, which had the side effect of making him far more Read more about Guardian[…]
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. At 2 points each the Deathstalker is versatile enough to Read more about Strider Deathstalkers[…]
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 Read more about Blighted Ogrun Warmonger War Chiefs[…]
Apparently Everblight developed a fondness for bellbottoms some time during Hordes: Evolution and the Shepherds sure do emphasize that. Other than the cutting and reposing of one of the Shepherd’s left arm there’s very little special about these two — my typical Nyss colors on average Nyss sculpts.
Once I finished up my blighted archers I decided to go ahead and get the last nyss unit, the Striders, done as well. Although I had been looking at blighted elves long enough I wanted to get the Striders done while I was comfortable with to the techniques I was going to have to use.

Much like the Harbinger of Menoth, I wasn’t a big fan of the extra people on the stock version of this model’s base. The Hierarch standing on the backs of a couple zealots might be fluffy, but it’s not what I wanted to put on the table. Instead I decided to model my conversion after Read more about Hierarch Severius[…]
I did some further experimentation with the Reaper Master Series Dusky Grape color that I picked up to use on Severius and realized it was just too much of a cool tone to match my color scheme. After another trip to one of the local gaming stores I picked up Burgundy Wine to try out. Read more about Feora, Protector of Flame[…]
