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.
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!
Just a quick little post. I got this guy back today and wanted to share. Used all the “Ruin” bits and put it on an Extreme Juggernaut kit. Greg did the hard parts. And added a circle construct for his base! Now I just have to get some paint on him for a tournament Saturday. Continue reading Extreme Ruin→
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.
