I don’t wanna work, I just want to swing my giant axe all day!

pButcher AKA da Man.
You can almost here him whistle while he works…

This is a little late in coming, but I’m working on getting all my completed models photographed and posted.  Today we have Mr. Orsus AKA The Butcher.  I’ve already mused about the man and the model before.  None of that has changed.  In fact, with each game I think I like him more.  And I think this is one of the best models I’ve ever done!

This one made it to April’s Paint the Target over at Lost Hemisphere and here’s what G’Day had to say about it:

VoltRon kicks down the door with Butcher wearing possibly the cleanest armor he’s ever seen fit to don. Stormtrooper inspired? I love the high contrast between the white and the blacks and oranges.

The Butcher, almost done in a day. Not bad...

This is what happens when you perform well in a game for me!  You get a one way ticket to the painting table!  Let that be a lesson to you warcasters…

While updating the Model List, I realized that I had gotten a pButcher way back in a trade, but he was still in his baggie, bare metal as could be.  Knowing that my next match was against Legion of Everblight, I thought that he would be a good caster against them with his troop buffs and being able to run at least 2 warjacks.  I was a little wary however, as I’ve never used him.

Strakhov vs The Butcher

The view downfield...

The Butcher had gone too far this time.  He had to be dealt with. The Empress knew there was only one man for the job: Shaft.

But since he wasn’t available, she went with Kommander Strakhov.

Last night was one of the final nights of the Slow Grow League and thus we found ourselves in 35 point games.  I came up against our Press Ganger, Brendon, and his tier 4 Butcher force, “The Black & Pinks.”  I went with a more “combined arms” approach for my Strakhov list.  TO THE ROSTERS!


Points: 35/35
Kommander Strakhov (*6pts)
* Destroyer (9pts)
* Torch (10pts)
* War dog (1pts)
Great Bears of Gallowswood (5pts)
Iron Fang Pikemen (Leader and 5 Grunts) (5pts)
* Iron Fang Pikemen Officer & Standard (2pts)
Widowmakers (Leader and 3 Grunts) (4pts)
Eiryss, Mage Hunter of Ios (3pts)
Widowmaker Marksman (2pts)


Points: 35/35
Tiers: 4
The Butcher of Khardov (*6pts)
* Juggernaut (7pts)
* Juggernaut (7pts)
* Kodiak (8pts)
* War dog (1pts)
Man-o-war Demolition Corps (Leader and 2 Grunts) (6pts)
Man-o-war Shocktroopers (Leader and 2 Grunts) (5pts)
Manhunter (2pts)
Manhunter (2pts)
Yuri the Axe (3pts)

Will the Butcher be caught with a stray bullet?  Will Strakhov be boiled alive? Can’t we all just get along? 

Read on to find out!

What’s next on the chopping block?

Butcher could still kill you with no arms.

See what I did there? Chopping block…picture of the Butcher…ehhh, you don’t know funny.

This is just a preview of sorts of what I’m working on.  Butcher was just an exercise in trying a new basing technique, the “junk pile”.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and the massive headache it was not, so I’ll be doing this one more often for my minis.  I think it gives it that “oomph,” you know what I mean? That extra little bit to make it look better.

The slow grow’s 15 point weeks are winding down and I have a lot of catching up to do in terms of painting. It’s safe to say I’m pretty behind in this league due to the delay in getting my stuff.  But oh well, I like playing with painted models and I’ll be glad to be able to quit proxying or subbing plain base discs as my models.

Next up is the Wardog and another warjack, this time Torch. The other warjack that I got in the 2 player box is going to get the magnetized treatment, while Torch and Beast 09 will not be. I think two “omni” ‘jacks should be enough, plus I have some cool pose ideas for the character ‘jacks.
