Today I bring you my Dervish twins. Lately I guess a fire as been lit under me (pun firmly intended) when it comes to painting my Menoth army. I think it comes from inputting them in forwardkommander.com’s collection manager and then promptly seeing that despite what it looks like on my shelf, I only have around 50% of my Menites painted. This can not stand!
I will end 2013 with that around 85% at least. There’s plenty of time left in the year for this to be possible, although this year’s Slow Grow/Journeyman may get in the way…hmm…actually make that at least 75%.
Anyway back to these guys…I painted both at once which is not something I do with warjacks due to the size of them and my wanting to see progress so I don’t get discouraged while painting them. These two are slightly smaller than the average light warjack and quite a bit thinner (thus more nimble?) so painting them took next to no time and didn’t give me enough time to get bored because by the time I was growing weary of painting one color, it was done and time to move on.
I’ve only just started using then and I believe they work best in pairs in order to maximize your investment (even if they are only 4 points a piece). I learned early on from Blood of Martys that sidestep on a jack can be straight money, which is what drew me to pick up these two.
