May Warmachine Wrap-Up

8 06 2014

OK, so it’s actually June 8th. I’ve been busy!

In the month of May I managed to pain two models (and played zero games!).

One was the eminent Kovnik Andrei Malakov. The only reward that I cared about from the Warmachine kickstarter, this guy is going to show up in lists with either a Decimator or Torch (until Grolar shows up).

I thought of doing a bit of a conversion on this guy, but he’s a limited edition sculpt. I imagine him sitting at a little bistro table with a cup of coffee or tea, just sneering at the theatre of war that surrounds him. Ah well. There’s always hope for the general release model.

The other thing I painted in May was, of course, my plastic Beast 09. I’ve seen a couple of versions of this guy running around with him holding his axe with two hands. However, they always have it backwards. If it’s supposed to be in his right hand, the axe head should be on the right side. I know that this is a fantasy world with werewolves, dragons and zombies, but come on folks! Let’s have some ground rules!

In any case, a bit about construction: when I started working on this guy, all the FLGS’s were out of Black Ivan kits. As a result the shoulder spikes here are all green stuff from an instamold. Likewise, the ‘jack rings on his thighs were green stuff as well, pulled via instamold from an Ironclad’s shoulders. Most other bits were freehande sculpts using even more green stuff. The ice on Ice Breaker is Woodland Scenic Water Effect.

I have no idea if this guy will be “tournament legal,”but I damn well think he should be!
