Khador, Yuri the Axe

Hi all

Here's the final model in this batch for my Warmachine Khador Army, Yuri the Axe.

So far I've painted 21 points for Khador, which is a bit of a odd number. So I've bought a unit of Widowmakers which takes it up to 25 point. I've also made up a Man-O-War Drakhun which Matt bought me for my birthday last year. I think i'm going to save painting these till after I've done a few Trollblood minis.

Trollbloods update

Hi all

Just a quick Trollblood update. I've finished constructing all the Troll models I have at the minute and since I took the picture I've filled the gaps with green stuff and based them all.

I'm struggling to find the time (daylight) to take them outside to spray.

How to do... Foam Weathering

Hi all

Since I posted up pics of my Khador Warjacks, a few people have asked how I did the Gritty/weathered look on the armour.

So here's my quick step by step of Foam Weathering.

What you'll need

A brush for mixing paints, a dry brush/old brush and some foam. For foam I use one of the off cuts from my carry case, but foam from a blister pack will work just as well.

Step 1 - Basecoat

Paint all the basecoat on the model and all the layering you might need to do. Bear in mind, this will messy and you will have to re-paint some areas.

Step 2 - Paints & Mixing

I mixed GW's Scorched Brown, Chaos Black and Knarloc Green (because this the base colour i'm painting over)

Now dip the foam into the paint. And dabbing the foam should give you the effect below.

Step 3 - Dabbing the 1st colour

Dap the area's you want to look worn.

Should look like this when finished.
This also works the same on the Red area's but show up more on brighter colours.
I used the Dry/Old Brush to prod in the hard to reach areas.

Step 4 - Metal Chips

Do the same, but this time with Bolt Gun Metal

Should look like this.

Step 5 - Fixing up

If you've done to much, you can go back and dab some of the original base coat colour over the top (this case it Knarloc Green).

Re-paint the area's which shouldn't be worn.

Step 6 - Wash

Once you're happy with it, given the model a coat of Delvan Mud wash.

Once done, carry on with Highlighting and Shading as normal.

Hope this is useful.
I've finished this unit now, so in a few days I'll post up the finished pictures.

Thanks Andy

Starting a new army, Trollbloods

Happy New Year everyone,

I've started a Trollbloods army for Warmachine & Hordes. I'm going to collect these along side my Khador army as no one I know (apart from Matt) plays Warmachine & Hordes I can lend one out and get a game.

I got a shed load for Christmas and bought a few more yesterday, so once I've finished the last of the Khador models I have, I'm going to start putting these together.

So far my army list is:
Epic Hoarluk Doomshaper +6 WB Points
Troll Axer 6pts
Troll Impaler 5pts
Dire Troll Mauler 9pts
Troll Bouncer 5pts
x10 Trollkin Fennblades 8pts

Which adds up to 27pts
