My Circle of Orboros army was really just an experiment in the use of washes and a dream of furrys. I’m quite happy with the result and it made miniature painting so much faster. The army in its entirety can be seen here with close ups of Kaya, Warbeasts, Druids, Skinwalkers, Bloodtrackers and Swamp gobbers.

Swamp Gobber Bellows Crew, a cheap minion unit, who pump out a lot of smoke so my army doesn’t get shot to pieces before it reach the enemies.

Tharn Bloodtrackers are a nice unit for harassing the enemy. They are cheap enough for cannonfodder and dangerous enough to wreck havoc if people ignore them.

To get some more furry to my army I added a unit of Warpborn Skinwalkers. These are brutal fighters but their biggest advantage is their high armour which is even greater when they are in combat. This is the wall of my army.

Even though Kaya is roaming far from the druids center, they have given her some druid magic for support and to be able to keep an eye after her. Blackclad Wayfarer. A nice support model who can make a warbeast charge or slam for free with an increase movement as well. Druid Wilder. A warcaster in the making, who can help a bit with the fury management. Shifting Stones. These help by moving models even further around and can heal warbeasts a bit if theu got nothing to move around. This unit can have a Stone Keeper attached for more gimmicks,…

Teeth, claw and fur, Horde armies need warbeasts so their warcaster can cast spell by tapping into the primeval fury of the beasts. From left: Argus. Nice 360° vision and able to use a single power 16 attack, which is quite helpful when fighting warmachine armies. Gorax. Primeval fury incarnated and a nice animus to buff itself and other warbeasts. Gnarlhorn Satyr. These creatures really love slamming stuff. If an enemy moves close to one of these it can slam that enemy. The real bonus comes from opening lines to enemy casters by moving enemies in the way by grand…

My army is lead by Kaya the Wildborne. With her passive buff to warbeasts, spells and feats which helps with fury management this warcaster is really nice in warbeast heavy armies. Which suits my rather well since I only got into Horde-Warmachine to see loads of big beasts and jacks, sadly I find that the game often favour infantries. I sometimes use her as Kaya the Moonhunter while using the white War Wolf as her light Warbeast Laris. The War Wolfs are otherwise used to fill leftover points.

By Zroll How can one resists creating an army of furs and claws and druids and mystic stones and and… Well my army is centred around Kaya, warbeasts and tharns which gives it rather wild and bestial appearance who operates far from the druid conclave. I have had the models sitting around for a long time, and finally decided to get them painted. I did not have a lot of time to paint and I got tons of armies waiting for their turn, so I needed a new and faster painting method. I decided to try out using GW washes…

Baldur the Stonecleaver    Baldur follows the main colourscheme for Circle expect I have given him a Khadorian red coat to bring forth his Khadorian history and origin. I have also painted the glyphs on his coat in a light blue glowing fashion to give him a magic touch. I wanted to paint his sword as marble but it didn’t turn out quite as I wanted it to. It started to look more like white granite and I decided to make all lines heavier to support this and I am happy with the result. The photo doesn’t give the swords…

   Kaya’s colourscheme follows the overall Circle colours, nothing fancy. However sometimes nothing fancy gets you something really good. I think Kaya turned out to be such a mini, both because I am very happy with all the blending etc, but also because her face has become the best face I have painted. And I think the light grey pants really works well with the green/ brown circle colourscheme.
