Gun Mages - Pew Pew
I really do wish that I got to paint these guys without the horrific pressure I put on myself for A Call to Arms.
I like painting robes, the natural lines and easy opportunities for shading/highlighting are great. I really do like how the blue turned out on these guys, I dialed it up a fair bit in contrast to the dark finish on the Storm Nouns. I wanted the gun mages to say "HEY, LOOK AT ME, IM REALLY BLUE & WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT IT?"
Overall, pretty stoked with how they look.
On to the black 13th.... which are real bittersweet models.
The sculpts are pretty cool, and the unit is very characterful. Unfortunately they are not made in the same scale as the rest of the entirety of Warmachine.
Yep, someone decided to make them in a true scale as opposed to heroic. Consequently they look like teenagers cosplaying as gun mages on the table.
It's pretty damn stupid, especially as they are one of the most feared units in the entire game.
I made some custom bases, just to elevate them so they didn't appear completely lost on the big bad battle field.
Oh, I really like the glowy effect i got on the captains hand!
