Warmachine Seraph

Recommended Posts

I think I got this and a couple of other Warmachine minis at garage sales. This one had seen a little abuse (some by me), but I always figured it'd make a good creepy dragon or horror creature someday, if I could figure out what its ecology was like. I painted this one to take a break from another mini that was kind of stalled.

 

The dude is about 60% base, because he's metal and the wings are quite heavy. His original base was pretty small, so I wanted to put something wider and heavier (read: more stable) underneath him.  I'm really happy with the output!

The Four Winged Toothy Beasty looks SPLENDID in green; that is the first time I've sen the Blighted Folk in a healthy color.

In addition to an original choice of colors, your brushwork & basing are OUTSTANDINGVERY NICELY DONE!

Wow, that is a lot of base, but it looks good!  What did you use for the water?

 

Thanks!  I was a bit leery putting that much base under him, but it all kind of came together yesterday, and the weight definitely helps.  Downside: now I don't know how to store him.

 

The water is epoxy resin, but I learned from my mistakes with the Wyvern. This time, I made the "shore" from play-doh and rocks, then covering that with glue and sand. So this time, it was actually watertight. I also was more careful with how I measured the components, so it dried much faster and more evenly. Although with all that diligence to prevent seepage, I still spilled some of it when I was pouring it in.  D'oh!

Thanks!!! I actually didn't know what their canonical colors were until I searched for the image so I could title this post.  Very, very different :-D

Aah, the older Seraph sculpt. A lot of people hated that sculpt, I always thought it was pretty cool. But it definitely didn't mesh with the way the faction's aesthetic evolved.

 

Regardless, I like the colors, and I love the base on this guy. Top-heaviness was a big problem with this sculpt, and you've solved it nicely.

Epoxy resin is always the best choice when you have lots of water.  Spillage is pretty much inevitable, some sort of corollary to Murphy's law.  ::D:
