WARMACHINE Mercenaries Cephalyx Agitator…

The solos that put Cephalyx into overdrive! These guys are pretty for awesome and buff most of the army with their little INSTIGATION aura which can be pretty amazing. Their baby Doc Oct claws were a little bit of a pain to put on, but they worked out in the end. I experimented doing some minimal glows on their eyes as a way to break out from my usual routine. You gotta mix it up to keep progressing that paint game!

WARMACHINE Khador Andrei Malakov…

This was the Warmachine Tactics Kickstarter exclusive sculpt. I really dig the pose and prefer it over the official release. This also marked a point where they started to offer different sculpting styles in which some of the models aren’t as bulky as usual, of which I am a fan of. That also meant less time to paint since less coverage so that motivated my lazy ass. I have only used him a handful of times, but he’s been pretty fun!

INFINITY HVT High Value Target…

In Infinity, you are required to have a HVT. It brings another element of scoring in the game which helps a lot since some scenarios are designed poorly or had minimal outside play testing. I wasn’t feeling the “Official Infinity Civilians” so I decided to go through some Reaper Chronoscope miniature bins at my LGS (Local Gaming Store) and pick something more appropriate. And so…Doctor Dave was born.

Warmachine Cryx Machine Wraith & Pistol Wraith…

These were a welcome break since they were different from what I usually painted. I also got to try out some new techniques such as glazing. I have been having a lot of fun with them in the Mercenaries Cephalyx Puppet Master contract!

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.

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!?
