Hordes Nephilim Soldier

I am really jealous of the way you paint the musculature on this mini. Its very nice.  But I think the background looks a bit busy and takes away form the details of your paint job.

Wow that is amazing! Do you plan on playing that on the table or are you just painting it for show? Either way it is stunning!

Outstanding, I really like the sword and metal toning on the front and rear armor.

Excellent work!  As others have said, the muscles are great and I love the detail on the sword.  I wish I had a steady enough hand to get those kinds of results!  :)

      So, because I have a bit of Hobby ADD as I like to call it, and because I really wasn't in a painting mood yesterday but was in a hobby mood (go figure) I decided to start on my Hordes Two Player Battle Box.  I decided in addition to getting started on this, and documenting my misadventures as a newbie hobbiest/hobbier? I would also conduct a bit of a product review along with it.  I figure that this box is intended, at least in part, for new players, and as such, may also include those new to the hobby.  So I'll document start to finish (fair warning, it will be a long time before I get it fully complete) while also providing commentary on the quality, etc.
       

       
      So, for starters, this is a compliment to the Warmachine game (could also be called the second side of the same coin).  The two games are fully compatible.  The box itself comes with a starting army for the Trollblood and Skorne factions (hence Two Player).  From a pricing standpoint, the value of the box in terms of content is somewhat dependent on whether you are just looking to paint the models, or if you are also looking to get into playing the game.  The box retails for about $90 but you can likely find it cheaper if you look around a bit (I myself got it for about 33% off).  As for the contents, you'll get 28 minis (if my math/memory serves) divided evenly between the two factions.  Additionally, you get various tokens and other bits you can use for playing the game but which are not related to the actual painting side of things.  Fair warning though, those 28 models include 10 models in each faction that are part of the same unit and thus, will be fairly similar.  If you were to buy the models separately though (or rather as they can currently be purchased outside the two player box) you'd pay about $150 retail, so from that standpoint, its a great deal.  Even better is if you have a friend that is looking to get into it as well and you can split the box with them.  I'm a masochist though and actually bought the box for the sake of having some of each faction and for the experience/joy/pain of assembling and painting them.  Anyway, removing the non-model related items from the box leaves you with this:
       

       
      Huh, how bad could that be right?
       
      Well, I decided to start with the three troll warbeasts which are contained together in one of the plastic bags shown, and when opened, leave you with this:
       

       
      I seem to remember counting 24 pieces for the three beasts though I only see 22 here.  Its possible there's a couple small pieces hiding, or that I just miscounted (no worries though, I know I'm not missing any pieces).  As I prepped these for assembly, I ran into my first complaint.  The mold lines on these pieces are quite plentiful, rather noticeable, and often times poorly placed (like right down the center of the face).  Fortunately I am not a perfectionist and am willing to say "good enough" but the plastic mold lines do come up easily enough with a hobby knife provided you can get the knife in there.  I got what I could, but didn't go nuts on it.  We'll see how bad it looks when they get primed.
       
      As for assembly, these are actually pretty easy to assemble so far.  The torso pieces can fit into any of the leg pieces and although the three beasts all carry a different armament, its easy to match the arms up with the torsos because of the shape of the pegs.  The downside to this is that there isn't a lot of room for mixing and matching the pieces between the three.  You could probably work the shield onto any of the three if you really wanted, and there's a pauldron that you could likely do the same with, but that's about it.  That said though, assembly was pretty easy which is good for a product targeting new players.
       

       
      So here are the three beasts mostly assembled.  The remaining pieces will be added later as I paint so as to allow better access to all parts of the models.  From left to right are the Troll Bouncer, Troll Impaler, and Troll Axer who I shall call Dalton, Vlad, and Lizzie respectively. Dalton is currently a bit forward leaning and needs his shield in order to stand still for the picture.  Or maybe he's just drunk, not sure.
       
      Anyway, next step will be priming and then they will probably sit for a few days while I a) work on some other models, b) let the primer cure (I use brush on) and c) go out of town.
       
      As always feel free to add in any questions and C&C (though not much to C&C yet I realize).  :P
