20 paces

One of the first Cygnaran miniatures that I fell in love with was the Arcane Tempest Gun Mages. I’ve rarely faced off against them, I guess mostly cause Serge preferred to field his Long Gunners and Trenchers. But they really scream Iron Kingdoms to me.

The long coats, the tricorn hats, the really cool mage pistols. There was no way I’d skip out on these while working on a Cygnar Army of my own.

There’s been two different versions of these miniatures, these are the newer ones. The classic version, were painted with a Cygnar blue on the entirety of their coats, I preferred the newer version, with a blueish gray coat, with just the trims being blue, so that’s the way I went.

I did do a mistake though, I ended up gluing them to the bases right away and started adding plasticard for the rocky ...

Deathstar in the making

As promised, here’s the pics so far.

Working on multiple factions at once helps my sanity. If I was to just paint blue or just red, I think I’d go nuts.

First up, for my Cygnar Army, I have Long Gunners. They’re progressing nicely, this is the min unit, I still have 4 more to prime and start on. Long Gunners are great and an almost auto-include for me. I remember fighting these and swearing at them. They pack quite the fire power, especially if they don’t move.

Next up, for my Khador force, are the almost completed Widow Makers. There’s some small details left, like the hilts for the swords, the goggles etc, and obviously the bases. But I’m really happy with them now, they really look like they would be hidden is a Iron Kingdoms version of Stalingrad.

Stocking up

Well, I decided to start stocking up.

Ended up buying the following this weekend:

For Khador

  • pButcher
  • War Dog
  • Kovnik Joe
  • Winter Guard
  • Winter Guard UA

(yeah yeah, it’s a death star)

For Cygnar

  • Gun Mages

For Convergence of Cyriss

  • Axis
  • Accretion Servitors
  • Army Book

I also got some red and black primer and some more super glue

At the time of writing this, the Winter Guard (minus UA or rocketeers) are almost done being painted as our a min unit of Long Gunners.

I’ll be posting pics tonight or tomorrow.

Moving Mountains

As I’ve mentioned a million times, I have painting ADD… after painting some Cygnar, then Khador, I decided to finally start on my Convergence of Cyriss stuff… but while the glue dried I finally started Mulg.

Before I talk about Mulg, I have to get this off my chest. I HATE the Privateer Press plastics… there is sooo much flash, plastic glue doesn’t work on them and there’s sooo much flash!

The warcaster you see in this pic was a real pain to assemble. The 3 jacks that came with him/her/it have flash everywhere and some of it is sooo hard to get rid of.

Alright, Mulg. I’ve had Mulg for a while, I believe he was one of the first minis I bought at Boutique FDB. He’s big, he’s heavy, he has a TON of pins in him. I had started priming him a few years ago, and ran out of primer...

For the motherland

Well kinda finished the Widowmakers last night. Not 100% satisfied with them, and got flashbacks of painting the Ironfang Pikemen.

But they’ll do. I definitely need new brushes now though.

Here’s a shot of all my Khadoran troops. Sorscha, Widowmakers, a unit of Man O War Shocktroopers, a Destroyer and Juggernaught. Both jacks are magnetized, so I can swap the hands.

The Red Army

I still need more stuff for this army. I’ve been debating getting the Butcher, some Winter Guard, with Kovnik Joe, a war dog and maybe a Spriggan. Though I’d LOVE to get the Behemoth, the Colossal, and the battle wagon 🙂

The Widowmakers

Needed a bit of a distraction last night, lots of things bugging me and painting seems to clear my head. Had some music blasting and painting and didn’t think of anything else.

I also needed a bit of a break from all the blue I’d been painting lately. So I took out my new Khadoran Widowmakers and started them out.

I decided to give them a winter feel. Still debating giving their longcoats a cammo look

Charge!

A few more WIPs.

First up is the Charger, I remember hating this jack so much, especially when Serge cast Snipe on it with Caine… not to mention the model isn’t really that nice. They’ve since changed it, with the new plastic fig, but now it’s ugly and bulky, instead of just ugly.

Next up is the Squire, I bought him back when I started the Slow Grow list… I’ve never fought against one, since it wasn’t released the last time I played. I like the idea of this mini jack, and the synergy with Nemo. It’s also a really cute mini. Think I originally got him to field with Siege.

Hope to have these done tonight so I can move on to troops. I’ve also started work on the Black 13th. No pics yet, but damn those three are tiny… I think they’re even smaller than the original Satixy minis...

Feeling Blue… but that’s a good thing

So with Ange still not feeling 100%, I took advantage of the time at home and worked on some miniatures.

I started with the important part. If I’m going to be playing Cygnar, I want to make sure I have a good selection in Warcasters. First up was Nemo, already having Stryker done, I thought this was cool, especially with his synergy with some of the other troops I plan on fielding.

In the first pic, you can see an OLD sculpt of Nemo, with a WIP shot of a Journyman. Siege and the Thunderhead are in the background.

Next up, are some better shots of Siege, and the Thunderhead with a bit of paint on him. This model has always intimidated me… it’s such a gorgeous model and some of the paint jobs I’ve seen have blown me away.

Here are the almost complete casters waiting for their base...

Boys in Blue

Can’t believe I never posted these… gotta be in here somewhere.

Anyways, a while back I wanted to join a WM slow grow league after a long hiatus. I never did start playing again, but I did get a new army and started painting them. The one army I vowed never to play. Cygnar!

First up is boy scout himself, Coleman Stryker. I went with the alternate sculpt that I had gotten as a free gift when I became a Pressganger. Absolutely love the paint job, you can almost picture him jumping out of the trench and stopping halfway in the no man’s land to shoot a bile thrall.

If all those battles against Serge taught me one thing about Cygnar, is that they’re shooty and if you can make them better at it… watch out! So, next mini was Reinholdt...

Warmachine Starter Set

It’s been so long… WM How I’ve missed you.

I’d bought the 2 player starter set a while back and figured it was time to slop some paint on them. This was cool, cause since I haven’t played Khador since I first started playing… Heck, my first Warmachine mini to paint 🙂

First up, Kreoss… THE MAN! I’ve painted so many versions of this guy over the years. The new plastic version is great, I don’t have to worry about the weapon snapping off, no pinning.

Next were the Man O Wars. In the past, when I first got into this, I painted my Khador box set and my Man O Wars as the 5th Border Legion… a drab green. This time, I thought I’d go more cannon… nice and bright red. I wanted the leader to stick out so, he got the nice grey treatment. I think they look great.
