Default Forces of the Dragonfather - Wraithlord's Cryx Army

Yeah as you can tell I have been sucked into Warmachine. As I slowly plod onwards with my Tsons I need to paint other things to get away from the same paint scheme and models that I have been painting over and over for the past 7 or 8 years. So I picked up some Cryx models from Privateer Press as my local club plays Warmachine and it looks like a lot of fun.

I wanted to go with a green scheme without painting the army exactly like the studio colours while keeping the paint scheme very simple and easy to do. For anyone who knows me on these boards, simple and effective is the way to go for me when it comes to tabletop pieces. I also decided that it would fit the theme to base them with a swampy look to the bases as well. Any way, here is the first finished model.


one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Looking good man. Not really into the models that much, but painting is great as useual man. My only critique is that I'd like to see a little more colour. While I really like the dark, manacing scheme you've got. I would like to see a few spots of another colour, red or yellow perhaps :D

Looking forward to seeing more man. Keep it up.

The lack of colour is being done on purpose actually. Cryx are all about raising the dead to fight for them and such so the idea that they would be worried about a nice contrast in colours for their jacks seems off to me. Infantry models and such will have more colour for sure however as they are individuals and would indeed be a bit more... lively. Too me the Cryx would view the jacks as nothing more than tools to be used and I have yet to paint one of my wrenches in a nice scheme

Do those War Jacks come plastic, resign or metal? Beccause I think I might get one or two models and use them as 40k models.
And could you also post a size ref pic of that against a normal Marine sized model?

They are metal for the most part but Privateer Press has begun casting in plastic now and some of the jacks and infantry models are plastic in the other ranges. Pretty sure that the entire Cryx line is metal at the moment however.

Here is the next one already, minus the base of course

Ok thanks, I wanted to get some of those knights in big armour from the zealous holy guys, I can't remember their faction name. Something with Menoth in it.

Protectorate of Menoth ;)
It'd be them or Cryx for me. Mainly cus I love Goreshare the Cursed's model and the majority of the High paladin of the wall character.
