    Mike D's Privateer Press Log

    So I spent all day painting my first Cryx model, Bane Lord Tartarus, only to realize I won't have access to a decent camera for a few days... but my whole motivation for finishing him was to stick him on here, so it looks like I'll have to do with showing you guys a crappy camera phone teaser shot. Anyway the theme for the army is going to be light effects and weathered bronze.

    That looks awesome, even with the lo-fi image! I really like the Cryx models, seems like you've done a good job!

    What other models do you have?

    Re: Mike D's Cryx force

    Thanks a lot man! Thats not actually my first Warmachine model. I've got a Goreshade the Bastard that I painted a couple years ago, which isn't really up to my current standards, so I need to strip him and repaint. I also have the Cryx jack that digs under ground. As soon as I get some disposable income I'm going to buy the starter box. I want to build my army around bane thralls and bane knights and a couple jacks.

    Here are some higher res pictures of Tartarus, now that I got access to a camera again. Hope you like him!


    I don't know how long it will be before I post again as I'm heading off to college and will have to find someone with a camera that i can borrow.

    Tartarus never looked so good. It is truly amazing to see such work; the bottom-up glow effect is powerfully convincing. Keep it up, mdiscala, we can't wait to see more!

    Thanks man, I actually converted him a little because I hated how he looked at first too. I cut him in the middle with a hack saw and then bent him forward into a pose that I think is a lot better then the stock model.

    Menacing with deliciously creepy green lighting effects. Well done.

    Wow! I'm very impressed with the cool, spooky glow paint job on this guy! Makes me want to dig my Cryx out and finish painting them.

    Looking great! Could we get some bigger pics, though? It's hard to make out the details... I got my first Warmachine mini for Christmas - a Bloat Thrall. Haven't started on it yet, but I'm certainly looking forward to!

    Cheers,

    Goreshade the "Born out of wedlock". I think I'm improving a little at the mini painting thing. I've been doing it for 13 years, its about time!

    Nice OSL, together with the weathered bronze makes for a very gloomy cryxian feeling.
