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:

      This is yet another of my metal trade bin finds! I picked him out because he looked like he was wounded, and I love minis in poses other than at-arms. It turns out that he's clutching a dagger on his chest, and not a wound. Also, I'm spoiled by Reaper's wonderful faces. This one is a little bit flat, though that may be due to being in the bin. Anyway, not my best work, but I painted this in a few hours!

      A fitting adversary for the Benthic Walker and my aquanauts, this burly fishy brute packs a massive steampunky harpoon cannon and a cape made of human leather. (How aquatic species do their leather-tanning, I don't know, but it seems to work for this guy.) 



      He's also adorned with fishhooks, which must be a bold countercultural statement among fishmen. Like a necklace of bullets and syringes for a human, I guess. 

      Big fella, he came with a Large base but could pass for a very burly Medium creature in my opinion.



      This brute is not some lungbreather hybrid from Innsmouth; this is 100% Deep One stuff. 



      Oh yes, also the rotten hands and bones on the gruesome cape. Trophies of the Ones that Got Away, perhaps?

      As seen in my Lunch Sessions WiP thread, here's the finished product of Borka Kegslayer, the stumbling-drunk warlock for Privateer Press' Trollbloods faction. I painted this guy up as part of a trade with @chaosscorpion , so the mini will be on his way across the state in the near future, unless CS sees something terribly terribly off.
       
      Basing is left to Chaosscorpion to better match his army.
       
      The plaid is a specific tartan, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm pleased that this mini pushed me into doing plaid, which I'd never done before.

       
      Borka also comes with a kegbearing Pyg. The kegstamp is, like the debossed pattern on the back of Borka's jacket, the symbol of the Trollbloods faction. I also enjoy the ridiculously drunken whelp sitting on top of the barrel.

       
      Chaosscorpion, let me know if there's anything that needs to change before I put them in the mail!

      Hi,
      I started collecting Cygnar in January, and few days ago i had my first match for 25 point. Simultaneously I paint Cryx for my girlfriend who is my opponent. Im really proud of ranger and maddox bases, and painting of Maddox (female warcaster with big sword) because everyone is complaining she has terrible sculpt, i think its interesting with nice pose.
