3 Day Challenge Update. Jacks are done!

After forgetting my paints at work Thursday night and going out to dinner and seeing Django Unchained on Friday night, I did not have a huge amount of gumption to get started on my 30 points of Cryx.

On top of all of that, my other hobby (multi-rotor remote controlled helicopters) took up a large chunk of my early Saturday as I’ve been meaning to get some landing gear on the… Nevermind.

Without further ado, here are my Nightmare and pair of Defilers:

I plan on doing the Army Painter dip method for the Mechanithralls and Stitch Thralls tomorrow after getting some base colors down. (Call it cheating all you want! It still makes a table quality model quickly.) After that, I just have the gunman, surgeon and warcaster to paint and take my time with. Wish me MORE luck!

Next Steps come painting.

UPDATE:
So I’ve been challenged to getting my 30 points of Cryx painted before we play on Monday. At first I thought it was crazy. Now I think I’m gonna go for it. I’m still going to work tomorrow so I really only have 2.5 days to do it but I’m gonna try my hand at getting a table quality paint job on my list of Cryx. Wish me luck.

Getting Into Some Hot Cryx Action

Just picked up this 30 point list off eBay for $130 with shipping. It’s a list I found on a forum that got a lot of good feedback so I figured it would be a good list to start with to get into Warmachine.

The List:

Iron Kingdoms RPG Figure

Avistew is going to be running a one-off game of Iron Kingdoms before heading back to France next month so I decided to put together and paint a Trollkin named Gardek from the Privaterr Press – Fools Rush In adventure (the PDF and other resources are listed on the bottom of the page on the Privateer Press website).

Since Gardek uses a large hammer as his main weapon, I looked for a Trollbloods figure that also has one. Really the only one I could find was Horthol, Long Rider Champion.

First thing I did was clean up and dry fit all the pieces to the guy while off his mount.

Then I went about painting the pieces individually before gluing and basing the figure.

I didn’t get any “in progress” shots because I wasn’t sure I was a) gonna post about him on this blog since he’s not plastic and b) gonna finish painting him in time for the game this weekend.

I really hope people like the tartan I painted on the guy’s sash at the game.
