Two weeks into our Journeyman, how has Makeda & the Exalted Court theme force been treating me?
Here are some artwork scans (no rules spoilers sorry!) for the new warjacks coming in soon to come Vengeance book.
Enough talk, picture time!
Khador Grolar, based off Kodiak chassis
Protectorate of Menoth Indictor, based off Guardian chassis
Cygnar Reliant, based off Stormclad chassis
Cryx Inflictor, based off Seether chassis
Because everything about Skorne is torture! Putting them together and painting them especially!
So that’s why I haven’t had near the amount of progress posts I had last year with my Rhyas list, despite this Makeda3 list having less models overall in it.
Week 1 of the Journeyman 2014 season officially kicked off last week, and I’m already WAAAAY behind. I haven’t got a single unit done…
The IK badass.
Chewbacca over on the forums is scultping busts of Warmachine and Hordes characters. They are effin’ amazing. Not much more to say about then really, just go check them out!

- FOC 7, DEF 13, ARM 17
- MAT 7, P+S 13 w/ Reach & Flame Burst
- Huge Base, Cavalry rules
- Lamentations of the Suffering (non-Magical ranged attacks automatically miss when he is camping a focus)
- Death March
- Iron Aggression
- Creator’s Wrath
- Flesh is Weak (RNG 8 POW 12 AOE 4 Models hit cannot Run or charge?)
Enemy Models in CTRL suffer -2DEF.
When an enemy model in CTRL is boxed by a ranged or melee attack, RFP that model. Place a 4″ AoE on the model boxed and every enemy model under the template takes a POW12 fire damage roll.
Very good actually. His feat is amazing. Tons of upkeeps (two of which are SELF), so watch out for Purification, although Lamentation can out right stop that. With all the RFP he brings, he’ll be an easy one to drop on certain match-ups. Death March is an amazing spell anyway and is even more amazing in Protectorate. I’ve already got a couple of list ideas brewing in the noggin.
I tend to do a unit model and a warjack/beast concurrently when starting a new army. Getting those two models done really drives the rest of the progress. So with the Praetorian featured earlier this week and the other warbeasts in my list being more “troublesome” for lack of a better word, that just leaves the Bronzeback.
Soon to be bringin’ da pain to all the good little warcasters and warlocks.
The first of my Skorne models is here.
Behold the first of twelve of these bros. What do you guys thing? The Skorne armor takes a long time to do, and I still don’t think it’s 100% to my liking.
Plus I feel like all the smooth blends and gradients I worked to get on the green are hidden by the bronze.
I mean, overall, I like the model and scheme. I think it came out well, even for a rank-and-file guy. But I guess I’m at the apprehension stage I seem to hit when starting to paint a new army.
Any thoughts you may have are most definitely welcome. Now that I have a completed model, it’s time to be fine-tuning my method and process before moving on to say, Makeda or the Mammoth.
