So What Has Corelin Been Up To?
Warmachine. That’s what. Getting back into the tabletop thing and really having a blast. I haven’t done well on the field yet, but I have had some very relaxing evenings painting, and gotten some decent results to date. At first I thought I wanted to go with Khador, it suits my generally unsubtle nature that tends towards a rather unsubtle plan, that tends to surprise my opponent by not concealing any hidden traps, just being a boot to the head.
I came up with a variant of the normal Khador scheme emphasizing the bronze work of the steampunk theme. This was the result I ended up with for the Destroyer Heavy Warjack:
But that didn’t last too long. I still like it but their infantry seems a bit meh and predictable. So I looked at Cryx. Wow. Casters who do everything from cripple the enemy (For the EvE folks think an all recon gang with good coordination) to out and out smashing, lacking only staying power, unless they want to go heavy on that, then they can keep the crippling but generally hit like wadded up tissues. I just finished basecoating some bonechickens:
To give you an idea, the Bonejacks are about 40-60 percent done (only the one in the middle has any shading done, and all three heads need varying amounts of work) whereas the Destroyer is more or less good where he is. Tomorrow I plan on painting one of my warcasters (Deneghra, or Denny) and the Slayer heavy jack. Not particularly looking forward to the slayer, and I have a crabjack to assemble which promises to try my patience as well. Priming with spray paint in winter in Iowa promises to be a challenge. We shall see how it goes. Tomorrow *MIGHT* be decent. It also *MIGHT* drive me insane.
