When I first got into Warmachine, I was talked into playing Menoth because that was the only faction left that wasn't being played in the league I joined. After checking out the color scheme, I decided that I wanted to go in a completly different direction (plus my white and red -fu were WAY off at that time). So I came up with an alternate color scheme. After playing it a few times, some of the other guys in the league commented on how dark and sinister the new color scheme was, which got me to thinking about a little fluff for this arm of Menoth. Seeing as how the Menoth faction is primarily desert based, I thought it would be cool to have a group that is isolated and "forgotten" by Menoth and his followers in the middle of the desert. I also wanted the jacks to have a very "heavy" metal look to them so I went with all metallics and Tamiya smoke (that stuff is the BOMB!). After awhile I stopped playing and painting Warmachine. I recently dug these out of storage and am putting them on new, themed bases. Once this project is complete I will be putting these models, a unit of unassembled unpainted temple guard, Menoth faction cards, rule books and special Warmachine templates from GF9 all on eBay.

On to the piccy goodness!

Here is the first group of jacks with High Exemplar Kreoss:

And the same Kreoss model as above but with 2 more warjacks:

They dont look like the normal boring white Menoth, I like the look, nice and used, exactly how a big steam powered war machine should look.
I think the purple on the light jacks could be a bit more weathered to match the rest on the machine.

Bugbait out.

They look very nice, and a bit more realistic in a way than the default Menoth. The stock ones look a bit too revered and polished, whereas these have the religious trappings but look a lot more like tools taken out to crush the enemy. Will you paint the temple guard before selling the lot?

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

@bugbait_nz: I agree with you about further weathering the purple. After looking at the photos and then the minis again, the purple does look a bit too "clean".

@Metaphorazine: I don't have any plans right now to paint the temple guard, they are still unassembled and in the box. I've too many other projects started that I may never have the time and might end up selling them off or trading them.
