aka 77089: Halbarand, Cleric standing on some Hirst Arts blocks. Hammer haft brass-rodded for stability and grabbing.
Tried out some Badger Metalsmith bronze colors (that’s the metallic brown undercoat). Reaper Ancient Bronze and VMA Gold for highlights. Bronze statues often have bronze bases, so I didn’t even bother to cut off his broccoli base.
I already have an objective marker, so I’ll probably give this away to a friend.
Major Elizabeth Maddox was one of the former Cynaran warcasters to defect to Khador after Vinter the Tyrant’s conquest of Cygnar. Shortly after arriving, she was whisked away to [Greylord college] to help design magical defenses again new electrical weapons continually being developed by Vinter’s chief warcaster, Nemo. A year later, she was given the honorary rank of Koldun and returned to active duty. Although many of those closest to her picked up on her behavioral and personality changes, most of them attributed it to the stress of losing their homeland and the continuing war. Only a few suspected the truth, and those few were smart enough to keep their mouths shut.
Upon reviewing Maddox’s service record, the Greylord commanders discovered that she had been tortured by Menite priests – first physically, then mentally – they resolved to finish the job of breaking her. Although Maddox’s spirit was strong, the damage already dealt by the Protectorate was considerable, and the Greylords were able to accomplish their goal. When they released Elizabeta back to warcaster duty, her loyalty was completely centered on the Greylords. During the subsequent war, she undertook many secret missions for the Greylords, sometimes abandoning whole companies of soldiers right before battle.
Since the war, she’s gained a reputation as a fanatically loyal Khadoran and a heartless commander. Although she’s been assigned to the province of South Khador, her actions have estranged her from most of her peers and caused the troops to fear serving under her.
I’m getting better at swamp bases. I got the correct tool for the job, which helps. 2 part resin water, mixed with a little GW Camoshade.
Conversion on Maddox: Forge Seer hat, lose a Cygnus on one of her shoulders, remove a little thingy from her pauldrons, swap out her electrity turbine for a good-old-fashioned coal powered one.
