• War Wagon

    The War Wagon.  Need I say more?   I love this model in so many ways, I think I will buy another. All paints were Vallejo, the grass woodland scenic and the mud was Vallejo.  To mage the bison connect to the yoke, I had to drill out and pin.  I think it worked pretty well.

  • Dhunian Knot

    Trolls get to play with colors and schemes in ways that Cygnar and the more organized faction armies don’t.   I’ll base these models shortly, and they’ll be table ready. My paint job isn’t super high quality, but at this point I only need to be able to play at the “must be painted” tables. Tactics The Dhunian Knot doesn’t want to fight in hand to hand combat.  Against single HP dudes, they only have a rough 25% chance at a kill.  So what does this unit have to offer the Trollblood army? Healing At first, I thought the healing

  • Northkin Shaman

    I painted up my Northkin Shaman twinsies this week. It was long overdue, as they’ve proven their worth in multiple games under Power of Dhunia. Tactics I’ve learned that they work well in a pair, creating 6” of cloud cover for Jarl to hide behind before his feat turn, and they have a 5” teleport to move them out of the clouds so they can take cover or pop up nearby. It’s like they get to run, and halfway through the run they drop a cloud. If they manage to kill something on a charge, they can disappear in a

  • Night Troll

    The Night Troll looks so cool.  For his paint job, I started with blue spray primer (Rustoleum), layered Vallejo Dark Prussian Blue mixed 2:1 with Black, washed with black and highlighted again with Dark Prussian Blue (straight this time). The ropes and loincloth were Leather Brown over the black wash, US Grey for the stones, and initially Ivory for the spines, teeth, claws and eyes.  I went over the Ivory with Verdigris Glaze and went over his tongue and veins with the same. An hour for this guy. I will work his base later.  Some flocking, base markings, and he

  • Jarl Skuld, Devil of the Thornwood

    I think this is one of my favorite models.  Yes, there are still a lot of details to hit, but his pose and gritty style makes everything palpable. This warlock is a little darker than the other shades of blue seen in my other models.  His rock studs are a muddy brown.  I did not tartan his clothing, because I figure he’s more of an outsider.  I hope we will see a Skuld 2 model with a few more Caine style gun mage abilities.

  • Troll Axer

    This is a really cool model.  He’s got a huge mouth, awesome set of frills and packs his own lunch.  The Axer didn’t have hardly any mold line issues.  I wonder what the new plastic ones will be like. I plan on doing several colors within my army.  Not every troll will be the same shade blue.  As a matter of fact, I’ve always wondered why Privateer settled on trolls with pretty much a singular skin color.  In some of their artwork, I’ve seen trolls with more earthy colors, but for the most part blue reigns supreme. This Axer sports

  • Skaldi Bonehammer

    Now here’s a troll that wants to party! Skaldi Bonehammer hails from the north, so I game him the traditional blue troll skin.  I gave him extremely light highlights, which show up almost white under the camera’s flash.  The model reminds me of this guy who I used to work with, who claimed he climbed a six foot fence while carrying a keg.

  • Cryx Pump House

    I was supposed to do terrain for the Crossroads of Courage, but got distracted by a plastic blister after picking up an X-Wing model last weekend. I figured it would make a good bunker or shed, and finally landed on the pump house idea. My thoughts are that the building will be an obstruction, and the green bile pool will serve as an acid pool. No swimming unless you’re wearing your acid proof wet suit.

  • Grenadier

    I didn’t spend all day on a Warjack!  Seriously, this guy was painted almost exactly the same way as the trenchers, with the added bonus of being much larger.  I’m not too concerned about getting this Grenadier beyond table-top level.  I’m pretty sure he’ll just blend in with the troops. Painting something with a style guide already in place made this go so much quicker.

  • Long Gunner Infantry Officer & Standard

    I tried to mimic the way I painted the first group of Long Gunner Infantry, but didn’t quite nail it.  These guys have been sitting on my shelf, since I hadn’t really found a place for them in my Mk2 lists.  Maybe next month, they’ll see some play.  Hence the rush to paint.
