Lylyth, Reckoning of Everblight

My take on Lylyth 3 (minus the base, which I haven’t even started yet – but it’s the same base I used on the Throne)

The mammoth is a GW Thundertusk. There were lots of fun little details to paint, especially when I left most of the gross things from the kit off. As for the wounds, I figure this guy didn’t take very well to being blighted.

3D Printed Pillboxes

I printed up some Warmachine-style terrain on my new 3D printer, one for myself and a few for my local game store.

This one is pretty dark and drab.  Primed with 50/50 Metallic and Black Primer.  Grey parts first covered with cheap craft paint, then tinted with miniature paints.  Printed with PLA on “High” resolution – .12mm layers.

These ones were primed with just Metallic Primer, the grey is a different color of craft paint, and the bottom is red/blue miniature paint.  The red one was printed with PLA at “Hyper” resolution – .05mm layers, and the blue one with ABS at High, but with a thin coat of gap-filling resin over most of it.

Khador Widowmakers / South Khador Long Gunners

Khador’s Widowmakers are feared by all of her enemies. The marksmen triply so.

However, when the concept of “elite marksmen” was attempted to be explained to the natives of South Khador, they just didn’t get it. Not only did they throw their rank-and-file at the problem, they insisted on waving about giant flags, which while very patriotic, dramatically hindered their effectiveness as snipers.

(After purchasing an ebay lot, I found myself with 15 widowmaker scouts/marksmen. I was about to trade them away, when I realized I could use them as Long Gunners with a little bit of conversion. Sure they’re not tourney legal as Long Gunners, but it’s not like I participate in tournaments, and it’s not like my opponents would be any more confused than they already were.)

Hilariously bad counterfeit Cygnar Heavy

Not a paint job… or even a “miniature”

A friend recently took a trip to Southeast Asia, saw this in a store and picked it up for me.  It’s a stupid cheap robot toy for kids.  Blatant ripoff of PP’s IP.  They also have a Khador ‘jack and GW Terminator mixed in there.  Probably the rest in the series are just IP I don’t recognize.  I love the complete inattention to detail, including the grooves where the boiler should be (the grooves are probably there to help the glue have something to grab).  It’s bigger than the real thing, but bulgy and the proportions are weirdly stretched.  Also, the paint job’s pretty bad, but not too bad considering how cheap a toy it is.

The real Ironclad is like “WTF?”

Kayazy Eliminators

I was originally planning on spending a good amount of time on these models, but the first pass of glazes and paints over directional highlighting looked sufficiently good that I just kind of finished up the details and called them done.  My favorite part is the “witcher” hair on the running one.

For those who are unfamiliar with Warmachine, yes, these two are basically ninjas.  They can run right through enemy models without getting attacked, they can’t be attacked from more than 5″ away, and they’re a huge PITA to hit in melee.
