Berserker/Rager/Mad Dog

This plastic kit was fun to build and easy to magnetize.  I put some effort into the red, but kind of phoned it in on the rest.  For the red, I started with zenithal priming, the applied yellow, orange and red inks.  I washed with Secret Weapon Ruby wash, making sure to wick it off the brightest ares and large flat areas.   Seems like a decent way to get a jack painted fast.  Too bad I’ll probably never use this kit (all three jacks are terrible, rules-wise).

Berserker (also check out the metal one I painted ages ago)

Rager

Mad Dog

Destroyer/Decimator

I magnetized and painted Juggernaut 52 a while back.  The rest of his parts were magnetized but I just got around to painting them.  Nothing too impressive with the painting, except that I managed to get so close to the original paint job.  Destroyer and Decimator arms and heads are new, Juggernaut is previous.  (Marauder parts were used to make a non-magnetized kit)

Iron Fang Pikemen/Black Dragons (Unit #2)

My second “speed painted” unit of Iron Fang Pikemen (with magnetic standard, so they can be Black Dragons, too).  All symbology has been removed from these guys so they won’t have the “wrong” shield.

As with the unit of Black Dragons, I relied heavily on the airbrush to do shading, and skipped a lot of the little details.  A couple of 1/32 magnets are holding each standard in place.

Although I decided on the color scheme independently of this, I am just imagining these guys showing up in the war for Llael, as “patriotic volunteers” who are equipped with Khadoran military equipment and speak Khadoran, but who are totally not Khadoran regulars, even when they accidentally take geotagged selfies of themselves inside Llaelese territory or blow up civilian airliners.

Black Dragons

Unit of Black Dragons in classic colors, “speed painted.”  They were speedy for me, and while they’ll look fine at arm’s length, they have some obviously deficient spots.

There’s a second unit inbound, plus about a half-dozen more guys that need to get painted for that army, so I didn’t want to get fancy.

Lord Kozlov, Viscount of Scarsgrad and Lesovik

Kozlov and his [unofficial] character jack, Lesovik.

Paint strategy was zenithal highlight, then red, orange, yellow inks, then red ink again (probably should have skipped that step).  Then Secret Weapon Ruby wash (okay, but not great for wide-open areas on Lesovik; great everywhere else).  Black everywhere that wasn’t red, then metals and black wash, then details.
