I present to you the first unit I have ever painted: Khador Widowmakers!
Back when I started to amass models to play Warmachine, I wanted to start with a warjack as they were bigger and thus a little easier to paint. I also wanted to paint a unit before I tackled a warcaster (in this case, Strakhov). The Widowmakers fit the bill perfectly as they didn’t need to have anything put together and had just the right amount of details without going too crazy. The one with an all silver rifle is the very first 30mm miniature I ever painted!
The idea with these guys was that they were in a forest, sniping and moving (Swift Hunter), while the Kapitan is high on a cliff, surveying the area for potential targets amongst the enemies below.
At first I hated them on the table. But after a few games with them (and with a Marksman), they really began to shine and now see themselves into many of the lists I come up with (usually as my main/only ranged option). Enjoy!
