Steamroller in February…

I started to run a monthly Steamroller Tournament that requires being fully painted and based. It’s been great putting some fire under people’s asses to finally paint up their models. It also helps create a mental deadline for themselves to finish painting their lists they want to play. Enjoy the pics!

Live vicariously once again through pics! Another one in the books.

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Exulon Thexus…

The moment I saw this model I fell in love with it. It’s so different from the usual aesthetics that I knew I wanted to paint it the moment I saw him. I wanted to also make him more game friendly so I decided to bend and and place his extra “Doc Ock” arms in such a way so I could still place models next to him. He was great to paint up and enjoyed figuring out how to break up the metallics to keep it interesting between the silver and brass.

mercenaries_cephalyx_exulon_thexusNo I don’t have REACH!

  1. Touch Tone Automotive Flat Grey Primer
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Army Painter Dark Tone Ink all over
  4. Painted eyes & rivets
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Forest Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnished with Rust-Oleum Clear Gloss and then Testor’s Dullcote

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Cephalyx Subduer Monstrosity…

My last monstrosity for now is finally done! I always thought this guy was undervalued by most players since he actually has a super long threat range for what seems like a very short ranged weapon. Of course his synergy reaches maximum potential with Exeulon Thexus due to his FEAT and Telekinesis.

mercenaries_cephalyx_monstrosity_subduerGotta net them all!

  1. Touch Tone Automotive Flat Grey Primer
  2. Base coat colors using Vallejo Game Colors & Vallejo Model Air Metallics
  3. Army Painter Soft Tone Ink over flesh & Dark Tone Ink over metal
  4. Repainted flesh using glazes & diluted purple ink/wash over veins
  5. Bases are comprised of Basecrafts Forest Scatter & Basecrafts Mixed Leaves
  6. I then varnished only with Testors Dullcote since it’s a plastic model

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Thrall Warrior…

This little solo is usually created from Alexia which I hope to get the motivation to paint one day. He was super quick to paint since he has so much armor plating. Lazy painters rejoice!

WARMACHINE Mercenaries Cephalyx Dominator…

He just wants to be loved. This solo let’s you play a Mercenary unit with Cephalyx. I usually play Nyss Hunters since they can do double duty as ranged and melee.

WARMACHINE Khador Winter Guard Mortar Crew…

BOOM BITCHES! I’ve been wanting to use this for a long time but never had a reason until Steamroller 2015 where you can actually choose out own objectives. So far I have been loving it with my Irusk2 list. The models were relatively easy to paint and didn’t take much time due to their clean design.

khador_mortar01Bombs awaaaaaay!
