Goreshade the Bastard I decided to make Goreshade stand out from the rest of my Cryx by painting him in a white armour with a worn metal look because being Elvenkin he would still have retained some of his arrongance and pride and would therefore be an undead with style. I am very happy with the result and would like re-paint the warjacks to fit him at some point. Deathwalker I wanted to make the Deathwalker look very grey. The obvious choice was to paint her skin grey but what is less obvious is that all her clothes are highlighted…

The Skarlock has a blue skin colour than the other Thralls because it is more magical. Since my Cryx is a paint for play army I didn’t want to spend to much time on it. However, I did want magical signs on his body and the cloth hainging from his hands so I painted geometrical shapes on it since they were easy signs to make.

Necrotechs All my Necrotechs have some degree of customisation in order to make them look individual. One has had his right arm replaced with a Ork Runtherd arm and his left arm replaced with an arm from a Scrap Thrall. The other two have had some small conversions made using bits mostly from a Neo Soviet Cyclops. Scrap Thralls I decided to try another approach on the rest of the Scrap Thralls since I think the first three (see below) looked too healthy. These have been primed black, Then painted in various faction colours to show they are in fact…

Deathrippers The Death Rippers that follows the paint scheme I decided to go for: Drybrush, drybrush and drybrush. Only “real” painting has gone into the bonebits. The Slayers have simular bars on the lower back to those ribs of the Bonejacks. So I decided not to paint them as metal bars but rather as ribs to keep the same overall theme. All the Deathrippers have small changes to them either by opening the jaws or added blood spallet in order for me to keep track of which is which in the heat of battle. Defilers Defilers are painted like the Deathrippers…

  Deneghra is very much painted in the same manner as the Warjacks because I don’t think Cryx is the realm where you polish your armour a lot. However the armour is only a small part of the mini. The bigger part is the insanely flapping cloak which I painted in a white color with green shades sort of like a piece of clothes that have been lying around in a very damp environment like a swamp. I am not too happy with the result but she’ll do untill I get around to paint her twin from the other startbox…

Drybrush, Drybrush and some more Drybrush. One of them have had the arms re-positioned into an all-out attack pose to make them look different. Can I just say for the record that yes, the Slayers are not much stronger or durable than the other factions light jacks, but so far I have yet to play a game where my Slayer does not kill his worth in points so they are not completely useless if used correctly.

After coming to a satisfactory result on my first attempt at non-metalic-metal I decided to use it on my Cryx minis. Unfortunately after spending hours on painting my prototype (right) I came to the conclusion that it looked too much like a toy and decided to go for another paintscheme which you can see on all other minis in my Cryx army.

Cryx Colourscheme After the Deathripper Prototype I decided to paint my jacks completely metal! Why completely metal? well, Necrotechs builds the Warjacks out of dead men/ animals and raw machinery/ metal by magically fusing them. I don’t think they care for painting them. The colour of the army is provided by the Scrap Thralls which have the colour of the enemy warjacks they were created from. So I decided to go the easy way and drybrush the lot! It took me less time to paint the first 2 Bonejacks and the first Slayer than painting the prototype. Later additions like Skarlock and…

Iron Kingdom Warmachines After for a long time waiting for a new game after VOR The Maelstrom died, two new games suddenly arose. One is Dark Age and the other is IK Warmachine, which this section is dedicated to. The Background IK Warmachine takes place in a fantasy world where steam-powered machines called Steam Jacks are brought to life by magic. This fantasy world first appeared in the D20 Roleplaying game Iron Kingdoms and in this game the Steam Jacks are only a small part of the game, they simply do jobs that machines like forklifts etc would do to day, but with such awesome strength and potential of causing…
