A buddy gave me his Khador army for Warmachine. While I figure out exactly how I want to paint my stompy robots, I thought I'd paint up one of my warcasters.
The red actually fairly easy, if time-consuming. Once I started going for details, it was a little harder. I originally went with red with brown leather (now only on the gun holster), but it was looking pretty muddy. I changed it to black for the most part, but the details were really getting lost. Changing a lot of the black to purple really helped get things to pop.
I used a lot of Scale75 paints, using their red and Metal 'n Alchemy sets. The rest was done primarily with Reaper paints, with a few Games Workshop washes.
The base was looking very plain until I added in some vegetation. I think it helped with the framing pretty well.
I really love making minis for our RPG group- and here is a party for one of our campaigns.
The group consisted of three trollkin and a farrow (who might have been a trollkin in a previous life- or maybe the next one).
Only the first one has no conversion elements. The one with the fell blades was a Fell Caller with Doomreaver levels.
Overall, I feel that this was one of our poorer intelligence parties- it was kind of a surprise that they ever got much done.
Not nearly as exciting as many of the Show Offs here, but part of my goal of continuing to paint, and to getting better, is to keep myself honest by posting as I go. So here then is High Exemplar Kreoss by Privateer Press. There are parts on here that I really like and parts that I know I still need to work on (in general). For the most part, I'm pretty happy with how the shoulder pads in particular came out, while the gold parts are still giving me fits when I try to shade. I know I really need to work on my paint consistency (I think) when shading the gold, but I also have decided to be satisfied in many instances with "good enough". Part of this is to keep me painting and realizing that I'll only get better with time. I do need to work on my blending some. On the robes in particular there are some pretty hash transition lines, but I still feel I am well ahead of where I was even six months ago. All in all, I think I met my goal of Table Top quality.
So since I was kidding Ub3r earlier, I feel its only fair that I post my own WIP (which will likely be slow progress).
This is High Exemplar Kreoss, a.k.a. Kreoss 1, a.k.a. pKreoss. A Warcaster for the Protectorate of Menoth in Warmachine by PP. This is just a quick shot of him primed (along with my lovely thumb as I had to hold it close to the light in order to get any of the details to stick out). I should have an update tomorrow with some early base coating!
