The Butcher



I'm participating in a Warmachine league and doing quite poorly in it. I felt that my warcaster (Sorscha if anyone wants to know) really stinks. So I picked up a new one, The Butcher. I don't think it's the warcaster as much as it is the player who is costing me the games. But I did have my first Warmachine win with the Butcher. Everyone says he's too difficult to play, etc, etc. But I like the model. The paint job came out very nice, much nicer than these pictures suggest. Still you can get an idea of what he looks like. I spent close to 10 hours on this guy, and I'll probably only play with him one more time before I pack him in mothballs. Good thing I like figure painting!

I can attest that these pictures do not do your models justice. I need to take a closer look at the butcher next time you're in.

Wow! My first comment! Thanks for stopping by. I will need to learn better photography if I'm going to be posting these pictures. I think it's my lighting setup. Anyway, I'll be sure to show off the Butcher next time I stop by the store. Thanks!

Lighting is key to not only the pictures but also the painting. Get a couple of arm lamps with 60 watt natural light floods. This is perfect for painting and pictures...but it is hot! Keep up the posts.
