Recently Malorian made a new years resolution to Play Painted. I personally have been playing painted for years now, but his decision to commit to playing painted inspired me to write this article about the subject.

Channel that anger! Right into your painting.

Warmachine is a game that is strong enough in it’s design and compelling enough in its interactions that it draws in players from competitive meta’s that don’t necessarily have a basis in the painting and hobby aspect of the game. Likewise some people who play the game find themselves with little time to paint with the general pressures of life, and it can be difficult for them to find the motivation to paint their models.

I certainly don’t have any magic solutions to find people the time or motivation to paint their models, but I’m going to try! The benefits and sense of personal accomplishment are well worth the effort!

Minuteman/Gobber Tinker Conversion

So my dream has not only been assembled but it has also been painted!  Its done.

Thanks to Ian for making it all come together and to Greg for painting it up for me!  Now I have the itch to dig my Cygnar out for a few games!

Yes I know someone else did this already.  Sorry I didn’t know it when I first posted it.

Denegrah the Soul Weaver- And her custom base.

After the amazing work I had done on my Kraken’s base I decided Denny needed some kind of love for her base too.   We bounced some ideas back and forth and came up with this.

The Swan Dive – All the Colours of the Rainbow

All right, I am currently sat staring at blank word document trying to figure out what to write in my second article, or more matter of factly how to write this second article. I’ve not managed to get a game in this week, and I’ve not really written a painting article before, but hey let’s give it a shot.

So, in truth I’ve not managed to get any actual painting down this week, but thankfully I’ve finished a couple of test models, which I’m going to show you, and I’ve gotten a good start on one of the units, something which has always been a problem for me to tackle.

First up, is the Stormblade Captain. Well, I’ll tell you this guy’s stock has shot up in the last few months that I’ve been on hiatus, which is nice because the model is far superior to the current plastic Stormblades, which I have to tell you are miserable models. Yuck. I hate to say it but I kind of want the metal ones back.
