Themed Tables at Lock & Load 2013

Here are just a few of the gorgeous tables in the Iron Arena at Lock & Load.

Painting Table Update - Feb 22, 2013

It's been over a month since an update from the painting table.  Cygnar is still a priority and some good progress has been made.  

Sword Knights - fodder for the fires of Menoth

Stormwall - "Put me in, coach!"

Stormwall makes it into play

Markus "Siege" Brisbane
It turns out that Siege is quite the handsome fellow.  His sculpt lends itself to painting a good looking face.

Painting Table Update - Jan 16, 2013

There's a whole slew of models on the painting table right now.  I'm still trying to build up a critical mass of Cygnar models/units to make for some more flexible lists.  

First up, the Sentinel.  Mainly, Caine wants a Shield Guard model.  The sentinel is a good choice since he's got more boxes and some shooty applications over the Bokur.  
The hope is that Murdoch will be attached to Boomhowlers once they're painted.  Also, his sculpt is a lot cooler than I expected.  He was fun to paint.
Jonas Murdoch
 The Ranger... I don't really have a plan for them.  They mainly appealed because they look sweet and there are only six of them... have I mentioned how much I hate painting units?
 Eiryss1 is another model that I feel like I need to have in my bag.  I have yet to play her, but I hear that she's "good."
 I wanted some cheap infantry, and the Sword Knights are the cheapest in-faction infantry that Cygnar has.  Also, Runewood is a badass, and he's a Sword Knight.  I'm really lacking in melee infantry right now and feel like I need something other than expensive Stormblades to gum up the works.
Sword Knights
 Yeah, this big bastard is still on the table.  Honestly I'm intimated by the big, gorgeous model.  Also, I didn't have any way to transport him until I got the Battlefoam insert.  Once I have the support army painted for him, I'll have run out of excuses.

Eventually I'll post shots of completed models, but it's just a pain in the ass to get the "studio" set up to take them.  The iPhone does a great job with shots on the table and the pictures seem to have more flavor to them.

On the painting table, 12/2/12

The Stormwall is assembled, but I'm procrastinating on painting it.  In the meantime, I started on the pods. I'm going to try some weathering effects on them once the painting is complete.  I'm thinking soot on the vanes and mud on the base.

Arlan is almost done.  I tried to add some details by painting his gauges with a needle and "danger zone" but I'm not sure if it really adds much to the model.  I still struggle with painting metal, especially on isolated spots.  Larger bits are easier.

The Thunderhead has been assembled and primed for months now.  Having just finished pNemo, I'm trying to get some progress made on him.  Recently I started using a Vallejo "extra opaque" brown to undercoat the gold instead of the typical black.  It's worked out really well.  Even when base-coating white, which I normally avoid with metals, the brown is dark and opaque enough to cover fine.

Also in the queue, I'm assembling Boomhowlers and Jonas Murdoch.  They should be a nice complement to a large majority of Cygnar lists.

DC brought his Galleon to Warmachine Weekend and it looked amazing.  I just wanted to throw up a quick picture of it.

Not to forget the Circle

I painted these a couple of months ago, but this is the first time I've had a chance to post pictures.  We've got some new additions including the Bloodtrackers + Nuala and Gallows Grove.  I've yet to put either on the table but hopefully this weekend it will happen.
