A Sunday Khador bonus

November 7, 2010

Now that “Jack a Day” week is over there’s a handful of other Khador models that I’ve completed but not published yet.

Manhunters

Two top quality sculpts here – both a joy to paint. Just the right amount of detail IMHO.

Next up we have the Wardog. No Khador caster worth his salt should leave home without Fido.

I can’t say I’m completely happy with my paint job here. It strikes me as just a little too dark now.

And my final Warmachine model is a Merc: Gorman Di Wulfe. Apparently this guy has the nickname “Donald Duck”. Personally, I don’t see why.

This model has not photographed well and looks much better in the “flesh”.

That should bring my Khador army to a close, but there’s also a number of other models sat in a box somewhere. Don’t expect to see them any time soon as I’m going to take a break from the Khador for a few months – although I may paint up Beast 09. He’s constructed and undercoated, ready for when the mood takes me.

A Jack a Day week – Day 6

November 6, 2010

A Jack a Day week draws to a close with my favourite Khador jack (so far) : The Behemoth.

I’m lost for words – this model is just stunning. A first glance you might be thinking too expensive (RRP £32.95), but let me tell you it is worth every penny.

One word of warning though – you will need to pin this one quite a lot.

This side view clearly shows that I’ve missed off an armour plate from each arm. I left these off to make the arm easier to paint, and I’ve yet to stick them back on. I’m not sure I’ll actually bother.

And that brings my Khador “Jack a Day” week to a close. I hoped you like it. For Khador fans check back tomorrow for a bonus posting.

A Jack a Day week – Day 5 – The Spriggan

Oh my, what an amazing model this is. A delight to put together, a dream to paint. You know you like a model when the only criticism you have is that he’s a pain in the neck to fit in your army box.

I think this picture shows why.

A quick zoom in shows the model at its best despite my average paint job.

This side on view shows the incredible design of the model. One warning though – you’ll be tired of painting rivets before your done with this one.

And here’s a rear view. All of the Khador Jacks look good from behind, but the Spriggan is probably my favourite.

Only one more day to go in “Jack a Day” week, and I’ve saved the best til last . . .

A Jack a Day week – Day 4

November 4, 2010

A Jack a Day week continues with Kodiak Thursday.

This was another “Bring & Buy” purchase. The main part of the model had been built and pinned, but the previous owner hadn’t pinned, or even attached, the arms.

I know why now. Simply put – they were a complete pain to pin and attach. Most of the problems were caused by trying to position the arms, and were finally solved by bending them. I’m not sure if this was the fault of the original miniature or if the previous owner had bent them himself. I’d be interested to hear from other people who’ve built this model to see if they had problems too.

You’ve got to love those big hands/arms – Lovely to paint too – even if they have some large flat surfaces which are usually a nuisance with the white colour scheme.

A Jack a Day week – Day 3

November 3, 2010

A Jack a Day week continues with 2 for 1 Wednesday.

Next up we have two Destroyers. Not the most exciting model to build or paint – just too many large flat surfaces. The Gun arm looks good though – very scary looking, but you’ve got to wonder where the spare ammo is kept . . .

It’s still not looking good is it?


A Jack a Day week – Day 2

November 2, 2010

Welcome to “Jack a Day” week – day 2.

Today we have another Juggernaut. You can’t have too many Juggernauts. Actually, you can. I’m not sure why I have two and I can’t remember buying the second one. Probably a moment of weakness at a Bring & Buy. I find it very hard to resist a bargain.

A Jack a Day week – Day 1

November 1, 2010

Welcome to “Jack a Day” week. This week I plan to publish pictures of my remaining Khador jacks.

Want to try and guess the frequency? 🙂

First up we have a Berserker. This is the first Khador jack I built and painted, but it slipped into the second batch of completed models because I took the decision to paint it with the arms unattached. This made it much easier to paint the detail, but meant that final assembly was delayed.

A lovely model. Noticeably smaller than the other Khador heavies, but it was probably my favourite one to paint. Not so much fun to assemble – as I had problems with one of the legs where it needed pinning to the foot and base.

Finally, a quick “Pledge” update.

Sadly, I’ve made a few purchases. Mostly some Hordes bits and bobs, plus the odd Warp Lightning Cannon for my up and coming Skaven project.
