View Full Version : Khador Warmachine Log - for the motherlad!

30-04-2007, 18:52
It's time I got off my **** and painted sorted out the models cluttering up my room.

Namely 1,000pts of Khador Warmachine and a Necromunda Delaque gang. Then I'm home free...although some scenery will probably appear too.

This weekend I had a mad gluing and flocking fest, followed by massed sprayage.

The results:


I intend to glue the shields on after they're painted. Note that the sgt has the standard Man O War legs and arms instead of the LOOK AT MEEEEE!! disco dancing pose he normally comes with. Sheild wall my ****!

I love this model and can't wait to see him painted. So I'll save him til last to inspire me to work harder.

I had to glue his halberd to his foot for extra strength. The Privateer Press model has it held out to the side in a line, only attached by a skinny wrist. It was blantantly going to break.

30-04-2007, 18:56
Vlad and chums before flock n spray. Note the 2 sword conversion!
Now he looks really awesome.

The Behemoth was an absolute nightmare of non stop filing before taking a whole week to assemble. Each component needs to carefully dry. I also converted his right leg to stand on the base. Normally he's up on one leg. I'm sorry Privateer Press, but that is gonna break!

Post spray n such. Halfords black spray flaked off one of them. Bit concerning.

The widowmakers and Sorscha.

30-04-2007, 18:59
My camera is being a bit of an **** right now, but I did get this shot of my Delaque leader. Shame a bit of flesh wash on a lower layer caught the light :(


I used some of the P3 paints. Thornwood Green on the weapons and Greatcoat Grey for the trousers. Very impressed how the go on so smoothly.

30-04-2007, 19:02
I'm looking forward to seeing the Motherland made proud. :) Will you be going red with them? Another endorsement for the P3s, I can't wait for my set to come in.

30-04-2007, 19:03
Like your Delaque! How about a tattoo on his head? Make him look even harder!

30-04-2007, 19:07

I've just slapped the first coat of red on the Butcher and his buddies. But I'll show all the stages when they're done. Suffice to say, I'm not using the P3 red as my basecoat. More coming soon!

I'll be slapping on the basic main colours during the week, then painting properly at the weekends. BY the time I get home from work the light is pretty poor. I need to get one of those daylight bulbs..

30-04-2007, 19:11
Lovely gang leader; smoothly painted and just generally good :)

I'm also interested to see this Warmachine as well. i don;t like their style from what I;ve seen; maybe seeing them with different painting wil change my mind?

01-05-2007, 07:56
My chaos cult needed a leader

Someome recommended the Mordheim Necromancer and I've got to say, he's an awesome model. Too bad his sword arm normally gets in the way of his face. I'll give him a bolter or pistol when I scav one.

cult leader

I slapped Bestial Brown on my delaques last night.

01-05-2007, 09:46
great work on those, I used them as my penal legion 'bodyguard'.

01-05-2007, 13:28
Lovely Chaos Cultists AMBS :D

02-05-2007, 18:54
Was out with work eating twice my own bodyweight in Chinese scoff yesterday and tonight I'm shattered after work.

I'll paint more stuff tomorrow. Probably more Necromunda and the next coat of red on a warjack.

02-05-2007, 19:05
Nice Necromunda gang, looking forward to see more of you painting.

03-05-2007, 19:59
Because it's dreary outside the light in my room is dreadful. I was only able to get a single coat of khardic flesh on my heavy and some flesh wash before it became too dark to paint.

I got myself a Daylight Bulb in the post, but it's a bayonette, not a screw in, so I'm a bit stumped. I'll buy a tall lamp or something at the weekend.

On the bright side, look at the blasphemous book I got in the post!


As you may have guessed, I'm a very happy bunny :D

Just realised it's a bank holiday weekend this week. Whoo hoo! 3 days of painting!

Expect some awesome results.

Until soon...

03-05-2007, 20:02
A very happy and slightly twisted looking bunny who has obviously been mutated much in the service of one god or other; I mean look how hideous he's been made! That can;t be natural!
What? It is! :eek: :o



03-05-2007, 20:23
Three Destroyers, the Behemoth, and Eiryss? You are not a very nice man are you? :p

05-05-2007, 09:21
Three Day Painting Weekend!

First off, my 12 cities of death barricades came in the post, which will be added to the growing scenery collection as demonstrated here by my Delque leader Slappy McSlaphead


05-05-2007, 10:46
I need to at the very least finish the Delaque gang this weekend. I've made a start on Roaring Reg the heavy with a Khardic Flesh basecoat (P3), followed by a Flesh Wash (GW). Next I paint on some Dwarf Flesh, then highlight with a little watered down Bleached Bone. I find that Elf Flesh is far too vibrant for skin....unless you're going for that 'slapped ****' look.

Here's some stages. Keep it simple and it looks fine. It's also best to hight where you see the light fall. This stops you from highlighting too much and keeps things quick.


Yes, yes, his goggles are blobbed! I'll tidy them up later.

05-05-2007, 16:19
Nice work.

The cultists, are they high elf archer legs, cadian torsos and arms, and wood elf heads?


05-05-2007, 16:29
Looking forward to seeing the Khador scheme. I stole my MOW Leader's legs for a Kovnik conversion and hadn't considered that shield wall will work better.

05-05-2007, 16:34
those are some nice necromunda figs but i'm waiting to see those crazy russians painted up

05-05-2007, 18:10

yup, just like in Firebase.

those are some nice necromunda figs but i'm waiting to see those crazy russians painted up

I want to get my gang out of the way for the CARNAGE social first ;)

More skin the form of batch painting.

Khardic Flesh basecoat

Flesh wash

Some Dwarf Flesh

05-05-2007, 18:13
Bleached Bone highlights and some grey for the skin 'ead on a couple of juves and the underhive skum.

Now it's just a case of all the easy bits...and those goggles.

The Iron Duke
05-05-2007, 18:20
The cultists are wonderful, as do the Khador guys. I'll be following this.

05-05-2007, 21:15
I'm hating my camera right now, because in real life, this guy looks amazing.


I also did some final touches to my gang leader. Just 9 doods to go...*sigh*

05-05-2007, 21:16
oh man i love the cultists so much, chaos eldar now theres an interesting idea :D

05-05-2007, 21:26
nice painting there, the gang leader looks good, try a different kind of lighting to see if he can come more a bit better than this pictures.

05-05-2007, 22:56
I love the delaque gang, very nice painting on it. I would love to see more khador though. Chaos cult is great though, very original

07-05-2007, 08:03
These models take so bloody long to paint... *sigh*

So I did some simpler stuff before my head explodes.
Sprayed the COD barricades black and also acquired some 40k scale cars and a truck for objectives, terrain and high speed chases in Necromunda. Not entirely sure how I'm going to paint them right now

Cars and truck, presented by my lovely assistant Slappy McSlaphead

I picked up some warjack scrap markers at SALUTE 07 for warmachine. Totally unofficial, but what the hell. Too bad none of them look remotely like a Khador warjack, so I painted them all as scrap.
The scheme came out a lot better than I thought and IF I was a sad, cheesy Iron Warriors player, I'd apply this scheme in an instant!

black undercoat,
bolter gun metal drybrush
dwarf bronze detailing
flesh wash around joins and over bronze
black wash over the lot.
very light mithril silver drybrush

another crap camera photo :(

Now it's back to the grind. I really need to get this gang finished today.

07-05-2007, 10:16
The Delaque gang is looking very good AMBS.

What's that about High Speed chases in Necromunda? I'm starting this summer and can;t find anything like that in the rulebook; are they unofficial rules or available in a totally different place to the rest of the rules?

07-05-2007, 12:38

No rules exist, but I'm sure my friends and I will come up with something.

Although they'll probably remain as stationary bits of terrain. Cars would be too easy to blow up in Necromunda.

If you want a car gang, try GorkaMorka, or even better, AXEL TRIBES which is free to download from www.drunkdwarves.com. All you need a 5 toy cars each.

4 gangers left...then I'll do a photo finish! :D

07-05-2007, 16:08
what's the scale on those car models? i've been looking for a truck like that, where did you get it?

07-05-2007, 17:03
I got them from a car boot sale, so I have no idea.

07-05-2007, 19:41
Only One Delaque remains!!

But I can't be arsed, I'm going to the pub :P

I'll finish him tomorrow then do photos.

08-05-2007, 18:48
I really look forward to seeing some of that warmachine stuff finished.

08-05-2007, 18:50
Leave the beer and paint!

Where's that last delaque model?

08-05-2007, 18:57
Now for some better photos.

That daylight bulb sure came in handy, but my camera still sucks mightily.




Now to start looking at that Warmachine stuff!

08-05-2007, 19:10
Looking very nice. It's just too bad that I live across the sea, I would have gladly challenged for a game.

08-05-2007, 19:21
I really like how you paint the skin on your figures,looks very life like to me.Cant wait to see your warmachine figures painted up.Have been seriously thinking about painting up some for display.

08-05-2007, 19:42
Love the stubble look on the juves. Those Delaques look awesome!

I've yet to see a single Warmachine army get finished, so good luck...

08-05-2007, 20:05

Oh, this will all be finished!

I want my wargames done and out of the way so I can concentrate on real life and maybe even find myself a lady friend.

09-05-2007, 18:03

Now kiddywinkles, I'm going to show you how I paint red properly. None of this bright and happy rubbish mind you! This is Khador and in Khador we're tough and gritty.

We begin with Scab Red as the base. It's best to apply a second watered down coat for better colour consistency.


Here we have komrade Orsus and his steam powered companions.

09-05-2007, 18:07
Howdid you get that colour over black with Scab red? :eek:

09-05-2007, 18:12
It looks a bit more purpley/pink in real life....like Scab Red. lol.

09-05-2007, 19:04
Oh, this will all be finished!

I want my wargames done and out of the way so I can concentrate on real life and maybe even find myself a lady friend.

Stick to that way round - since I got together with my now wife, I haven't even managed to put a model together...

09-05-2007, 20:06
I'd better get painting then!

09-05-2007, 20:11
Don't worry, they grow up and love the hobby, look at my mob!

Watching closely..

10-05-2007, 06:04
Oh man, those new Khador models just look amazing. I cant wait to see you finish em off, Ill be following this thread!

10-05-2007, 06:24
nice, glad you're going with the butch, he's a monster

10-05-2007, 07:54
Don't wanna go to work today.
Wanna sit n' paint models.

Also, I really do wonder if I bought too much Warmachine stuff.
I'm never going to play 1000pts, so Vlad, 2 Destroyers and the Behemoth are kinda pointless.

We'll see how things progress...

10-05-2007, 10:27
The Behemoth is great fun. He can be fun for a 500 pointer or two.

10-05-2007, 10:32
Yeah, the Behemoth is fine at 500, as is the Avatar and Deathjack. Only the Thunderhead really struggles at that level. And 2 Destroyers + Sorscha = Win my friend :D

10-05-2007, 19:29
Done a fair bit o' painting this evening. I was meant to take photos of the red in stages, but...I just couldn't help myself and kept on painting.

Just need to do the final highlights on the juggernaught's red, then I'll photo and compare it to the Scab Red destroyer.

Khador Red Base is RUBBISH! It's not red, it's bright orange.
I may try it on some orange models in the future with Khador Highlight as the second layer.
I feel a Van Saar gang coming on painted in the Yu Jing colours from INFINITY.

11-05-2007, 19:18

Last time I showed you how to paint Scab Red (oooooh!), but now I'll show you the finished article. I could have shown it in stages, but I'm a busy man and my camera sucks.


Scab Red base on the left, finished red on the right.

Base coat scab red.
Second coat is Red Gore. Make sure you paint all but the darkest areas. Once again, judge this by the light and it should be made easier on the squarer bits.
Highlight One mix up a pot of 2/3 Red Gore, 1./3 Blood Red. Be careful how much Blood Red you add, as it totally kills the other colour if you use too much. You then begin highlighting the brightest areas with this, namely the edges. The majority of the model should still look very Red Gore.
Highlight Two get some Blood Red, water it down a bit so it's not too bright, then paint on where the highlights are brightest and along the edges. You can layer up the highlights over particularly shiny areas for a great effect, but keep it minimal. Too much highlighting and it'll look orange.


And there you are! One brilliantly rich n red Khador warjack. This also works well on Necrons, Blood Angels and Khorne Bezekers

12-05-2007, 11:36
Whew! Just finished the juggernaught, now onto the Butcher :D

No photos yet because the camera battery is recharging.
If you wonder why I complain about the camera, it's only got 2 mega pixels :(

12-05-2007, 13:52
I'm liking your warmachine stuff, will be watching closely ;)

13-05-2007, 11:51
It's terrain time!

First of all, I did a bit of what business boffins call 'outsourcing', known to you and me as 'payting someone else to do it for you'.

As I'm sure those of you with careers can appreciate, I am a busy man, so I paid Gerard Pitt, young lad who lives up the road, to get the Macragge shuttle, slap it on an MDF board, then flock and paint it. Good job he's done too!



Stay tuned for more scenery in the future!

Gerard also made my gaming boards for me...or his older brother did, then Gerard repainted them in the fine grey finish you see now.

13-05-2007, 11:51
I also sprayed up the barricades and cars with Halford's grey primer over a blakc undercoat, followed by a little dusting of Halford's beige for a softer toned finish. Magnifique!



13-05-2007, 13:38
Very nice red. Will you be detailing the terrain a bit more? Especially the barricade.

Angel Robertson
13-05-2007, 13:43
Where did you get the cars from? They look perfect size just not futurey enough, i know futrey isnt a word but its the most descriptive i could come up with!


13-05-2007, 13:48

Futuristic is the word you are "searching" for. :p

13-05-2007, 14:31
Very nice red. Will you be detailing the terrain a bit more? Especially the barricade.

Nah, they're fine as they are.

I finally finished the butcher and the first warjack!





Underground, overground, murdering free
the Butcher of Khardov, brutal is he
hacking up all of the things that he finds
the limbs that the everyday folks leave behind...

13-05-2007, 23:09
Y'know, I seriously do wonder if there's much demand for warmachine logs on warseer when there are so many 40K players...

Or should this be listed in the fantasy section?

Angel Robertson
13-05-2007, 23:18
They look so awsome! Seriously tempted to buy some minis!


14-05-2007, 01:21
WAAAGH! Khador! That's awesome :D The checks look real good, and nice use of black to temper the rampant red that you usually see on Khador.

14-05-2007, 01:28
wowness and man tingle


14-05-2007, 06:39
They look so awsome! Seriously tempted to buy some minis!


Just pick up a starter set or two. They're about 30 each.

You get the quick start rules and all you need for a small skirmish. My friends and I haven't even gone over 350pts yet, although the 500pt game seems to be looming.

Just go for whatever you like the look of really :)

14-05-2007, 07:34
They look awesome, i really dig the checks, something different that you don;t see all the time but fits so well.

Good work.

wowness and man tingle


You worry me sometimes SC.



15-05-2007, 07:06
This morning the postman rang the doorbell at 6am!

But I forgive him, because he brough me these:


More soon!

15-05-2007, 07:18
open it open it open it!



15-05-2007, 07:54
Oh sheep! How can I refuse those sweet puppy dog eyes. :D

Here you go.



This is the beauty of 'outsourcing'.
Although I need to repaint the bases a darker shade of grey, then drybrush the cars and barricades I already have with fortress grey to get all the terrain to match up.

Off to work now. Back tonight, hopefully with some shots from a game of Necromunda

15-05-2007, 11:16
The Khador are looking good. If I can get off my bum I'll revive my mostly Warmachine log here as well shortly.

15-05-2007, 11:27
Awesome stuff, who ever did that is a very talented individual.

I'm a sheep, the only way i could have puppy dog eyes was if i was holding them :D



15-05-2007, 12:48
Yes, and I wanna eat 'em!
I am a chaos player remember ;)

I'm really impressed with these buildings. Seriously thinking about getting some more.

15-05-2007, 16:13
Who were they made by?

And how expensive if you don't mind my asking?



15-05-2007, 17:31
They're made by a guy on ebay from the UK.


I bought the 5 building set which came to 100 with postage.

15-05-2007, 19:16
The table is set up and ready to play some Necromunda!


This really shows that the bases are too light and need repainting. Something for this weekend methinks.

I realise there aren't any walkways, but in Necromunda walkways have always been deathtraps for anyone brave or stupid enough to use them.


Hmmm... I could do with another small building/feature or three.

16-05-2007, 08:01
I've ordered another building and one of these!


I also ordered a dino skeleton...because I could.


16-05-2007, 09:58
Neat, thay'll look great.

Is this the terrain shopping channel or are you going to do some more painting :p :D



16-05-2007, 17:55
Because I've been out running, or doing other things that don't involve painting I'm using scenery to stall for time ;)

Also, my room's a bloody tip and needs clearing up.

20-05-2007, 18:13
Edited due to image difficulties

20-05-2007, 18:15
OH, that's interesting, my camera is being crap.
Looks like I may be buying a new one...or not bothering :(

2 chaos spawn. Awesome fun to paint.

chaos spawn with 3 of the possessed painted by Adam Parkhouse. 7 more on the way soon!


I've been tidying up my room, so Warmachine has been on the back burner a bit. I've also given myself a neck injury while reading the Liber Chaotica. The Ruinous Powers are certainly not to be toyed with!

21-05-2007, 09:49
Lovely, very cohesive.

Nice stuff, though i have to wonder, do you do any painting yourself or do you commision everything? Not meaning to be rude just wondering :)
