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[…]

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 Read more about Nephilim Protector[…]

Gray Elf Snakestrike Duelist

The Snakestrike Duelist is an older D&D Chainmail figure I painted as a side project back in 2009 ago.  The sculpt itself is typical for the Chainmail line, relatively flat and almost 2D-ish compared with more intricately sculpted miniatures.  Done mostly speed-painting, the skin isn’t as smooth as I’d like but is a solid tabletop Read more about Gray Elf Snakestrike Duelist[…]

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.    This model came in more pieces than the other Protectorate Read more about Blessing of Vengeance[…]

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.    At 2 points each the Deathstalker is versatile enough to Read more about Strider Deathstalkers[…]

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 Read more about Blighted Ogrun Warmonger War Chiefs[…]

Blighted Nyss Striders

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.

Hierarch Severius

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[…]

Thagrosh, the Messiah

I painted Epic Thagrosh up just before DieCon 9 to use as the centerpiece of my Hardcore army, and as of now he’s still my favorite model in the Warmachine and Hordes lines. It doesn’t have the full metal fantasy look of the Warmachine side of things but he’s just an impressive model.   Epic Thagrosh Read more about Thagrosh, the Messiah[…]
