Kommander Strakhov. The first Warcaster I painted and the sixth model I’ve ever painted.
When I was getting into Warmachine and decided on Khador as my (first) faction, I knew Kommander Strakhov would be the first warcaster I used. He was just too cool not to. With my army theme in hand I went to work on painting him and I am actually really happy with how the color scheme came out. The execution…meh. But like I said, sixth model painted ever.
In time, when my painting skills improve, I’d like to come back to him and maybe update or redo him.
I am also very happy with how the base turned out. It’s become a reoccurring thing for me to give my Khador warcasters some kind of elaborate base (as you’ll see in the future).
With his eyes, I went with a different approach: glowing with arcane energy, like he’s casting a spell or controlling a warjack. I also gave him lines under his eyes like a quarterback. I thought it would be cool touch, but unfortunately I’m not at all fond of it.
Enough blabbing, let’s get to the pictures! I present to you my completed: Kommader Strakhov!
