Further work on my Stryker3! Hoping to get him finished for the game tomorrow…
Here he was Sunday night…
Base coat is about… 75% done at this point. Happy with how he’s coming along, but a LOT of work still to go. But what would Stryker be without his noble horse?
So with the painting competition I held on Saturday over, I realized that I’ve finally gotten some of my enthusiasm for painting back. To be honest, I think the whites of Menoth were really getting me down… they’re just so much work to make look acceptable. Since I’m playing Cygnar again, though, I figured I had better finish up some of them instead!
Here we see what I was painting while the competition was going on… specifically, my eHaley, pEiryss, Taryn di Rovissi, and Aiyana and Holt. So… basically all the best-loved women that play for Cygnar (and by “Best Loved”, I mean “Most Loathed by whoever is unlucky enough to be on the other side of the table”).
So everything has been packed up, but I wanted to take a quick moment to show you all a moment of pride and shame… my packed box of models I own but have not yet even unboxed:
That is a “Frogbox”, for those of you curious, and it measures a mere 24x20x12″ (about 70L, or 2.4 cubic feet)… and it’s packed exclusively with WarMachine models (oh, and 2 MERCs models and 2 Malifaux models for mods I’m going to make for the B13). Two Stormwalls, a Vessel of Judgement, a Stormstrider, Stryker3, blister after blister of troops, warjacks, and bits from Khador, Cygnar, and Menoth (I haven’t collected any Khador since 2012, but I haven’t painted almost any of the stuff I have either!).
I’m going to do my damnedest to get more of this stuff painted before I buy NEW stuff… but we’ll see how that goes!
As I’ve been saying for the past few weeks on the podcast, my phoenix has been in a state of near completion for a while now. This weekend I put enough finishing touches on it that I was ready to call it done.In addition to finishing off my Phoenix I also had a chance to paint my Basher to completion. Not bad.
Well, I’ve almost finished my most recent additions to my growing Menite army… 2 Vassals of Menoth! I hope to finish them completely tonight, but for now, enjoy the 85% doneness that they are currently…
The attentive amoung you might notice that I’ve also almost finished my Lightning Pods… a few highlights, and those bad-boys are ready to rock and roll! I’m very tempted to write “To Khador With Love” on one, “To Ios With Love” on the 2nd, and “To Cryx With Love” on the third. I may yet do that… it’s rare that more than 1 survives a turn anyway.

So I attempted to unleash some of my new Protectorate models on our Cryx player on Wednesday… my only condition is that he couldn’t play Gaspy2 against me (since I have no screening infantry, Gaspy2’s Feat is basically a hard-counter and instant game winner against my current Menoth army). Adam wasn’t having any of that, so I didn’t end up being able to play my Menoth. 🙁
But! On the flip side, now I can show everyone else what I’ve been working on!
Here we see a group shot of much of my Menoth: 2 Reckoners (in the back), 2 magnetized warjack kits currently outfitted as Vanquishers, 2 Vassals of Menoth, Vilmon, a Hierophant, the Covenant, and 3 Wracks.
