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.

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.

New update. Finished Venethrax today, as always the bases will come later since I like to do them all at once. He will have the same style of base as the first model. Really enjoyed painting this model I must say.

Great to see your skills on some non GW minis.
The Venathrax really pops and the green works so well.
Always fancied doing some warmachine stuff and seeing yours is making it really hard to resist getting some.

Sorry Wraithlord, but could I ask for a ref pic with Venethrax against a marine? I need it to know if the models I want to get are the right scale.

I've never been tempted to get any of these mini's although these do look excellent.

Venethrax looks brilliant, although he needs to eat more.

Glad you like it guys, was a ton of fun to paint and it is such a sweet frickin model.

Venethrax is almost twice the height of a marine Vail.

Those models are really making me interested into looking at Warmachine!
That is what got me interested in it. They play WM in my local club but I never really got into the idea until I started looking at the models which are beautiful for the most part. The final tip over the edge for me was the fact that unlike GW's games, you don't usually use more than one of a unit type which means you might paint 5-10 models of a certain kind and then you are onto a completely different model which keeps it fresh. None of this 30 models per unit in a game that requires 3-5 troop units. Hobby wise, that is the biggest downfall of Fantasy/40k, the fact that you have to paint 40+ of the exact same model.

Looking fantastic Wraith! The Liche Lord looks great, the colour scheme you've chosen works really well with them. Makes me want to take some paint to some!

Great painting as always.
