During my downtime period with no internet I kind accidentally bought some warmachine minis and painted them up. This here's Kommandant Irusk accompaignied by two warjacks - a Juggernaught on the left and a Destroyer on the right.
I've modified the gun of the destroyer as I thought it was a bit too weenie..
Actually I didn't give the original Khador red theme much thought as it really wasn't what I wanted to do. Instead I undercoated the models tinbitz, then gave them an overhaul with boltgun metal, before giving them my secret ink. After that treatment they were painted in russian uniform colours from Vallejo Model Colour in some of the flat areas. Lastly I took a sponge and tapped on white till it looked patchy and kind of like they did it on the T-tanks during WW2.
I'm gonna paint the infantry with blue skin highlighted up to elf flesh. The theme of the army is a cross between old horror movies and the russian army. I think I'll be using some Gothic Horror models for infantry instead of the Winter Guard ones that PP make - those are really ugly sculpts I think. I'd rather have the Evil Cossacks from Goth Horror instead.
I'm also going to be using the werewolf models as doom reavers I think.
And well - sooner or later I better get Vlad as he kind of fits the bill of an evil vampire overlord quite nicely.
Let me know what you think.
