PP73056: Legion of Everblight Battlegroup

First, as always, thank you Reaper for letting us post non-Reaper things to this forum.

 

Second: I have finally painted my battlegroup for Legion of Everblight! I've only had it for two years. A few friends and I are planning a casual journeyman league, so I figured I should at least have the initial group painted...it's only 13 points of the 113 I own, so I still have plenty of "hobby points" to earn if I paint things during the league, and it's nice to have this much done.

 

The Carnivean (the big dude on the right) was done some time ago; you can see his Show Off thread here.

I'm quite pleased by Lylyth's cloak; the freehand symbol of the Legion came out pretty well and stands out on the table pretty clearly.

The colors for the army work well, and although it drives me crazy to have some really rough blends on these, it only took me about 6 hours of total work to paint all four Shredders and the two Stingers that I've posted in this other thread. So yes...some rough spots, but they look nice at arm's length, and an hour per model is really really fast for me. Army painting is hard, as there are things I keep seeing, starting to fix, and then telling myself not to worry because those transitions will look fine at arm's length.

For those unfamiliar with Privateer Press' Warmachine/Hordes games, the diamonds, lines and triangles on the bases show the front arc and center-front of each mini, which is important for the mechanics of the game. The writing you can see on the Shredders are their names, so it's easy to tell the similar units apart. The shredder's names are Happy, Hoppy, Beggy and Bargey. Lylyth, the Warlock (leader), is not labeled because she's completely unique in the army, and the carnivean isn't labeled yet (his name is Midway, because he's a carny).

 

As always, C&C welcome!

Great work on the models. I see the need and utility for the base markings, but would it work ingame if you toned them down a little to a mid-grey (or crimson, or mid-blue, etc etc)? It's just a shame because they distract the eye from the paintwork on your great looking models

Excellent work! I love the Legion symbol on pLyl's cloak.

Which is exactly why I use the 'other' rule for determining facing. I choose not to mark my bases.
