Eiryss 1 and 2

I could put more effort into them (especially 2) but I don’t want to. Eiryss 1 is one of my oldest Warmachine models and I wanted to finally call her officially painted.

   

   

Current WIPs

Way too much stuff in progress.  I still have a zillion Satyxis to paint as well.

Warmachine stuff:

Stuff I 3d printed, most of it from Artisan Guild

Savio Montero Acosta

Quick paint job on Acosta here. Metal drybrushed over black. Then GW Contrast paints on sword and head. I tried to use Contrast black on the cloak, but it was a miserable disaster. He’s black because he’s a Thamarite (evil) and Cygnaran (evil). Base is brown because that’s what color bases my Mercs get. I’d consider painting the Thamarites a separate color since the Morrowans get a separate color, but that’s something I can fix later if I want.

Legion of Lost Souls (Steelhead Halberdiers)

The Steelheads were 90% at my LGS so I bought them to convert to the upcoming Legion of Lost Souls, a good-guy undead unit. Fitting with power-creep, the new unit has halberds, guns, shields and recursion. The Steelhead unit, while much cheaper (in points), only has halberds.

Painted with GW’s new Aetheric Blue Contrast paint, followed by a white drybrush. The bases are plasticard; the reverse side was airbrushed using new Fallout Hobby stencils. The stencils had a much smaller pattern than I had hoped. In addition, this particular pattern was very hard to pull off the backing and use.

Gallant

Painting process was nearly identical to Constance Blaize, except I used P3 Brass Balls for some of the metals, and to highlight some of the red-gold.  You can get a better sense of the base from Gallant than from Constance.

These two buddies will bring much warmth to my shelves.
