More Cygnar

September 17, 2010

Here a couple of pictures of what should be my last Cygnar models for some time. Unless I find a cheap Brisbane on a Bring & Buy somewhere.

Ol Rowdy was a bit awkward to put together, but the Hunter went together like a dream. Both look like lean, mean killing machines.

I counted these as the equivalent of 16 models when I bought them, so I’ll count them as the same now they are painted, although the effort taken to assemble and paint them was probably about double that.

Coming next – Khador!

I’ve also no gotten around to counting most of the models I bought at Newbury

Which makes the current score:

Obtained: 454
Painted: 195
Sold: 13
Net: -246

Back in the game . . .

. . . I hope so. Four months without an update is simply too long. The truth is that there has been very little to report though. I’m not really sure why, but I’ve not been in the right mood to paint much recently. Although I’ve still been buying figures 😦

I’ve not been completely idle, although I’ve been picking at old projects rather that finishing them. Recently though I’ve started to get back in to the swing of things, working mostly at getting some Khador jacks finished. It’s been heavy going though. Perhaps a white/red paint scheme wasn’t the most sensible choice. They’d certainly have been finished by now had I gone for the all red scheme that is the most common one you see. You can expect pictures for these over the next month or so as and when I varnish them.

Whilst working on the Khador I’ve not ignored my Cygnar completely. I’ve finished a couple of extra casters and there’s a pair of jacks drying on the varnish table as I type this. Both casters are Haley. First up her “Prime” incarnation.

Followed by here “Epic” version. As you can see I haven’t used the full cloak extension. Due to a slight miscast I had a terrible time trying to assemble the thing properly and finally decided not to bother. She looks fine without it.

So only two figures finished opposed to a couple of hundred bought puts me back in the hole for my 2010 pledge.

Obtained: 315
Painted: 74
Sold: 13
Net: -228

For Cygnar!

December 1, 2009

I’ve recently acquired two small Cygnar armies. One was bought from the Colours Bring & Buy and the second from the Warfare one. Both were painted by the same painter. It’s a simple but effective paint scheme and looks effortless, but I suspect a great deal of effort has gone into perfecting this technique. It’s not a style I’ve ever tried, but I’ll be giving it a go shortly as reinforcements are under construction as I type.

First up I have my Warcasters:
