Torch! Burninating all the peoples!

Torch gon give it to ya!

It’s pretty safe to say that I’m proud of my Torch.   I really took my time on this guy to make sure he came out as good and clean as possible, since to me, he is by far the coolest looking warjack in Warmachine currently.

BFFs fo lyfe.

The other two heavy warjacks I have magnetized for flexibility and pretty standard bases, but for the character ‘jacks (Torch and Beast-09) I decided to just go ahead and give them static poses and more elaborate bases.  In this case, I set up Torch to mimic Kommander Strakhov’s pose, seeing as how he is his personal warjack.  I then decided to take it one step further and have Torch completely mimic Strakhov’s color scheme.  It came out awesome and may approximate the scheme on my remaining warjacks (Beast-09 will be mimicking Sorscha, I do know that), but we’ll see.

Torch is pretty much auto-include in my lists nowadays and he never fails to perform on the table.  Enjoy the pictures! (Sidenote: In the coming week(s), even more completed posts are coming! Stay tuned!) Thoughts, comments, suggestions?  I’m open to them!

You can track Torch’s progress in these posts: one, two, three, and this one as the final.

  1. Such a great looking model! You’ve come really far on getting your whites to look smoother and smoother. I’m also loving the flames on the base. Feel free not to bring torch when next we meet. 🙂

  2. Very nice work. Knowing that you just started painting recently makes this even more impressive. Clean all round, which is a good place to start, and the always fickle white looks great. On the table Torch is plenty impressive. He doesn’t seem to get much love, which I don’t fully understand, but I think a few meetings with the flamer and/or buzz saw will change minds. He’s a great toolbox that can wreck just about anything, plus he doesn’t break the bank points-wise. Cheaper than Beast, and more versatile, if not quite as killy. My only concern is the pose. It’s dynamic and looks nice, but storage could be an issue. The spread arms pose has caused lots of headaches for me, hopefully it works out better for you.
