Satyxis Flag – 14106: Dark Maiden

Painted for use as a 40mm flag for use with my Satyxis army.  Same colors as usual for the wood: Reddish Brown Badger Stynlyrez primer, Black wash, drybrush S75 Bosh Chestnut, mix in some P3 Hammerfall Khaki for highlights.  Used RMS Blackened Steel for the weapons/chains/anchor, highlights courtesy of Vallejo Metal Medium.  Grass tufts are from Army Painter.

Cryx Jacks

Just finished up a slew of Cryx ‘jacks.  Most of the work is Green Stuff World’s Color Shift paint.  Martian Green is the color I used, which I think is a green flake in a purple paint.  It shifts between green and purple.  I used yellow, 1xGreen,3xYellow and Green inks to color the glow.  The other metal bits are VGA Chainmail Silver, VGC Tinny Tin and GW Gehenna Gold.

The bases are the CMON/MAS bases.  Their “large” packs come with 1x 50mm and 6x 40mm, which is a terrible combination for my army, so I will need to figure out what to do for the other two heavies.  The other two lights are waiting on their rims to dry.

I’ve got the new HIPS Slayer, the Slayer and Reaper out of Mk2 starter, and some plastic chickenjacks.

New basing for v3 Slayer.  I 3d printed the planks, used some pumice paste to fill in holes, then painted it the same as the other bases.  The main difference is that I made the center darker than the outsides.

WIP

I haven’t posted WIPs lately, and this isn’t much of one, but here’s what I’m working on at the moment:

That’s 20 Satyxis Raiders (+2 UAs +2 Captains), 10 Blood Witches, 3 Gunslingers, 2 solos, 1 warcaster, 2 heavies and 3 lights.  Progress is fairly slow because I am doing them assembly-line style and there are so many.  Currently, I’ve inked the main colors on each unit (green and blue for Raiders, blue for witches, purple for gunslingers) and started in on basecoating the leather.

They are all getting wooden-plank bases, which are basically done.

The jacks have been drybrushed with metal and washed with black wash, but I may change direction and use color-shift paints on them.  I did up one bonejack quickly to see how the colorshift looks

Unrelated to warmachine, I have several 3D printed items I’ve been working on painting.  A finished hover-car, a primed police car, primed ship for the Satyxis and some sci-fi vehicles (from Antenocities Workshop) based with colorshift paint.

Ripjaw

Painted this guy rather quickly.  I enjoyed doing the glow effects.

Black primer, VMC Oiled Steel and VAC Bright Brass for metal, white for glow, followed by VGC Yellow ink, then 2x Yellow + P3 Green Ink, then Green Ink.  Then white + yellow again for the hot spots.  Vallejo Old Rust and Rust for the rust effects, plus verdigris on the copper.

Base is cork (obviously) with gesso, black primer, then a generous helping of VGC Red Ink to let it seep into the cracks.  Around the edges is green paint filled in with water effect.

Laori Vaus (Satyxis Raider)

Laori Vaus is a sadistic, evil, elven cleric in the current Pathfinder campaign I’m running.  Curiously enough, she’s an ally rather than an enemy.  The PCs have grown rather fond of her in their brief encounters, so she reappeared when we had a guest player.  I painted this mini for that encounter.  The mini is a Satyxis Raider with the horns removed.
