Hordes Minions Gatormen Jaga-Jaga Warlock…

Hello all! It’s been some time since I’ve done any work on my Gatormen, but alas I was fully painted with no new models I wanted until I saw Jaga-Jaga. She is definitely one of my favorite models from the Gatormen side of Minions. Unfortunately since we also got the amazing Sacral Vault Battle Engine she isn’t needed as much anymore. Regardless she was a pleasure to paint and I might even go back and use my recently bough UHU glue to do some blood strands from the undead snakes open wounds. Fun fact, I was looking for cool snake patterns and the striped one on her chest is actually not poisonous at all and is based off a Scarlet King snake. The other snakes are based off of Florida swamp snake. Next up on menu for my Gatormen are the new plastic posses and Sacral Vault!

minions_jaga_jagaI think she likes snakes. Maybe.

  1. Touch Tone Flat Grey Primer (Cheap automotive primer!)
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over the miniature
  4. Minimal highlights (eyes only)
  5. Bases consist of mixed grit sizes, Army Painter Swamp Tufts & Flame/Red Mix Leaves
  6. I then varnish with Rust-oleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Coat (Non-Yellowing & UV Resistant) & then use Testors Dullcote to subdue the shine

INFINITY Yu Jing Terracotta Soldier…

Big bad Terracotta heavy infantry. What is there to be said? They are pretty legit for their points value and I am considering running them at max allowed. I spent some time feathering and blending the model with the light source being directly overhead. I’m still playing around with different techniques on all the models though. Why not right!?

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Gorman Di Sea Wulfe…

This is a special version of Gorman Di Wulfe that was given exclusively to Press Gangers. I forget this and sometimes get called out during a game with a “Who the hell is that?!” or “So uhhh where’s Gorman?”. He was fairly simple to paint with my usual method, but I really should’ve spent more time on him since he’s a special piece. But I just wanted to keep playing fully painted! PLAY IT PAINTED KIDS!

His song when he’s placed on the battlefield…in slow motion of course.

INFINITY Yu Jing Domaru Butai with Chain Rifle…

This was my first Infinity miniature I ever owned. I didn’t end up keeping the sword on him for practical reasons during gaming and for traveling. I used him to decide a basic color scheme and where my points of separation should be to break up the monotony of the main color. If you’ve seen any of my stuff before or follow me, you can see how I basically copied my Warmachine Khador scheme but threw in more greys now. Also I’m trying to keep the dirtywashing minimal for Infinity.

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Cephalyx Warden Monstrosity…

Hey all! I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. I ended up picking up Cephalyx because they generally run mass infantry lists, which I’m not used to at all. It also doesn’t hurt that I love FrankenZombies! I really love these Monstrosity sculpts and tried some new techniques such as glazing on them for fun. Overall I’m pretty happy with how they came out! I also did magnetize all the arms so I can swap out what I need depending on what I want. I’m still deciding on what kind of tufts to put on their bases though.

INFINITY Yu Jing Zhanshi with Combi Rifle…

Here’s some Line Troops from Yu Jing. I’ve pretty much stuck with my same painting recipe except now I will highlight after the dark tone inks are used. I figured since I don’t have to paint a lot of models such as the larger units from WARMACHINE/HORDES I could experiment more.

WARMACHINE Mercenaries First Mate Hawk…

Hello out there! It’s been too long since I have gotten to get into the groove of posting miniatures I’ve finished. Take my word for it that I have painted a ton of minis. I have enough pics to post on a weekly basis now!

First up is First Mate Hawk from the Warmachine Mercenaries faction. I was playing around with her in my Butcher2 list for awhile. Still not sure how I feel about it, but having more acrobatics is always fun ;)
