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.” I painted up two versions of this miniature at once, the second Read more about Doc Killingsworth[…]

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. This and the Vengers‘ are Read more about High Exemplar Gravus[…]

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. There’s just enough detail on the Vassal to give a painter options to integrate it into their army’s color scheme.  I opted for a pretty Read more about Vassal of Menoth[…]

Exemplar Errant

As much as painting ceremonial Exemplar armor can be tedious at times I really like way Exemplar look on the tabletop. What stood out to me while I was photographing this models was how much better the officer and standard bearer’s gold trim looked than the rest of the unit.  In the couple years before Read more about Exemplar Errant[…]

Anastasia di Bray

Sometimes I think I go too far with muted color schemes.  I always prefer them for something like Anastasia here instead of painting the spy in bright and garish colors but it doesn’t translate to the table top nearly well. The sculpt wasn’t my favorite by far and I probably wouldn’t have painted Anastasia if I Read more about Anastasia di Bray[…]

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 Read more about Eiryss, Angel of Retribution[…]

Hierophant

I painted the Hierophant in time for DieCon X back in 2010.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I think I’ve already made my biggest critique of this figure in a previous WIP post about it. Working all the metallics reminded me how much I hate painting them.  I always look at each miniature Read more about Hierophant[…]

Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard

I painted Rhoven and his Exemplar honor guard up at the tail end of my Protectorate collection. I’ve only fielded them once or twice since they were first released, and as such they kept getting pushed back to the end of my painting queue. But as PP’s release schedule slowed the past couple years I Read more about Visgoth Rhoven & Honor Guard[…]

Gorman di Wulf, Rogue Alchemist

Although my first try at painting a light source, I was rather pleased with how Gorman turned out. All of his garments were painted in various browns to create a dull, utilitarian look. This was meant to contrast the glowing vials hanging from his waist. I think the end result really highlights the vials. The Read more about Gorman di Wulf, Rogue Alchemist[…]

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 Read more about Captain Bartolo Montador[…]
