I’m waiting for the doom train to pull in to the station where people are talking about how he is the latest Worst Thing Ever and Cygnar is still noncompetitive or some such BS. Just, I just don’t see it. This guy is 110% amazing.
Sigh…I can believe I’m featuring more filthy swans on my blarg…
This time is a couple of commissions/works for my friend Danny, who is also working on getting his Templecon Hardcore list painted (a list I’m sure to see a lot of, the dreaded eHaley/double Stormwall list).
I mentioned in yesterday’s post how we had a night of painting to try and focus us on getting our lists done (with more possible in the future), but I was also able to help Danny with some airbrushing techniques. His eHaley hadn’t even been touched yet, languishing as bare metal. I could not let this stand, ever if it was eHaley…
Danny showed me this picture from the Prime rulebook and told me that is how he wanted his Haley to look. I thought it would actually be fairly easy to accomplish, so set about to getting it done.
Here’s how she came out. She is still missing the details and metals, but I’ll leave that to Danny.
I’m really jumping around in topics on this blarg aren’t I?
That pretty much echoes real life as I keep jumping around different models and armies in my painting. But it’s high time this Stormwall took center stage as it is a commission. Thankfully the owner is away at college at the moment, so he’s not hurting to get it back, which is great because painting a colossal has been a bigger undertaking than I first imagined.
The story behind this paint job is actually pretty cool. The player is painting up his jacks in the colors of the Power Rangers, so I suggested that his Stormwall should be Megazord. It was an idea that was too cool to pass up so here I am making it happen. Below is the pic I’m using as a reference.
The cool thing about it is that I actually get to flex my airbrushing muscle on this guy as my jet black Menoth didn’t really need it. By my estimates this guy is about 30% done. He still needs a few basecoats here and there and I haven’t even touched the arms yet…
Sooo…I’ve been slacking. Kinda in painting and mostly in updating this here blarg. It’s been hard to stay motivated for my Khador right now since all I have left are basically 2 units to finish painting and our LGS’ (annual?) slow-grow league is about to start on June 16th. I’m ready to try out my Menoth. They’ve been sitting on my shelf since December, so you can see why I’m so antsy.
Anywho…awhile ago I teased my first commission for Paul. Welp, here it is in all it’s completed glory! I really like how this guy came out! Enough yappin’, here’s some pics!
The first Colossal has been officially revealed, along with the answer to one of the major questions to these Colossals: How much will they cost?
The answer: $135 USD.
Now this could just be for this one, because it also comes with 3 small based lightning pod things, but I think the others are going to be very close in price. Many on the forums and Privateer Press’ facebook are complaining about the price point. What are your thoughts? I personally was thinking they would be around $100-$110ish, since the battle engines are around $85 each. Another kind of weird thing, it that they really seem to be moving on these things, but all of the battle engines and some figures for the latest books aren’t even out yet.
I still think it looks awesome, even if it is…Cygnar. I’m looking forward to seeing the other ones in all their official photo glory, especially the Menoth and Khador ones (cause, ya know, I play them).
Seriously though, check out the 360 gallery on Privateer Press’ site, it is really good and smooth, rather than the 4-6 sided ones they usually do.
