As I mentioned in my last update, I've decided to get back into Warmachine and Hordes. This means that I'm mostly catching up on models that I've wanted but didn't buy when I was actively playing. I can't say that I'm actually "actively playing" right now. But I think I'll probably get the occasional game in when I can.
I really enjoyed painting this model. I'm not sure he's really a fit with my current model collection. As a Jack Marshall, he needs Warjacks that aren't focus hogs. My current Jacks are focus hogs. Well, I'll have to fix that with buying some more Warjacks! (If none of that made sense to you, it was all game related jargon anyway.)
OK, this model came out nice. Again, I can take my time with it and put the layers on nice and thin, etc, etc. Red is hard to highlight properly. It either gets too pink or too orange. I generally lean toward the orange if I have to lean either way. I think this model was as close to "neutral" as I've ever come.
Assembling this model, however, was a nightmare. I had to pin his axe hand into the arm, and then glue the axe to the shield for stability. It's not the pose I wanted, but it was the one that kept the model from crumbling each time I touched it.
