Ragman isn’t quite as important for Khador anymore, but he was a fairly easy paint job (you can probably tell from all the brown).

This beefy guy barely fits on a 40mm base. He is quite a solid hunk of metal. He was a pretty quick paint job – probably 4 hours total. I primed black then used directional highlighting to bring out the highlights. Then, instead of using paints, I did pretty much the whole thing with inks, which are transparent and will let the shading I did with the airbrush show through. Also, a little bit of water effects on the base.
A 1-point mercenary solo I’ll be throwing into the occasional Khador list, when I’m a point short. He repairs jacks.
I painted up the miniature fairly quickly (I’m taking this week off work, so I had plenty of time to work on him today), but it was a surprisingly fun sculpt. I think he’s got a lot of character, with that hat, tools tucked everywhere and the cigar. I got to use lots of different metallic paints, and I also tried out VMC Dried Rust effects. I’m kinda meh on it, but it’s definitely better than trying to do it with regular paints.
Ironically, a bunch of army-painted skeletons are now among my best painted Warmachines miniatures. Alexia got more time, but even then she was painted up fairly quickly.
Skeletons: Former Trencher, Former ??? (I couldn’t find a unit with grunts that looked like this, but I’m guessing something from Menoth) and Former Winter Guard. Bone + 3 colors then a brown wash.
Alexia – with and without grunts in the background
And finally, a closeup of Alexia’s face. I didn’t spend a lot of time on it, but am happy with how it came out. The hair has a bit more definition in person.
The white fuzz happens if I’m not super-careful with my matte sealer. It’s hardly noticeable in the hand, so I didn’t bother to get rid of it. I don’t know why it shows up so well in photos.
