Welcome to Librarium Online!
Decided to ditch Warhammer 40,000 and Games Workshop alltogether for a while, and started playing WARMACHINE again with my friends. Gotta love it, best miniaturegame around in my opinion. Anyways, to keep my painting hand steady and my brushes wet, I'll be holding a blog of my Khador army.
Here's the first man of the empire. Vladimir Tzepesci, the Dark Champion and Prince of Umbrey:
Done in full NMM, like the rest of the army will be. Hope you digg.

Woo Khador! AHH MOTHERLAND!
Very cool. That glossy red looks sweeeet and it's nice to see some proper NMM in this age of grit and dirty miniatures.
Usually I don't touch miniatures I have deemed finished, but since I didn't receive my order of the rest of the army yet, I decided to add some detail to Vlad. I painted some gold embroiders on the shoulderplates for added detail, and some shading on his hair, in addition to other minor improvements. (Pic at start of thread.)
I dont understand Warmachine, how do you play it? Most people say it is better than Warhammer but I want to know why .
I think I would kill a man to get painting skills like yours!
well deserved rep.
One of the awesome things are the Feats of Warcasters, abilities you can use once per game. They're usually extremely powerful, and can turn the tide of battle in an instant, this adds a nice flavor of surprise to the mix of the battle. There are hundreds of different combos in the game that you can create by combining units special abilities, feats, and spells. And well, who doesn't like Warjacks?
Also, it's a skirmish game on the default game size, so you won't need as many miniatures (and your army will be cheaper too.) The final thing is the attitude of Privateer Press. They dont go with the greedy shut-off corporate style, instead they do the opposite, and have been doing so as a company all this time.
They even published the new rules for the game free as a PDF, eventhough they are just about to publish them as a book aswell. That really is something.
Those are the main points I find WARMACHINE/HORDES good.
Anyways, the rules are easy to learn, but take a lot to master! I highly recommend you try the game.
Very very nice.
May I ask which paints (brand and colours) you've used for the model?
Cervantes: In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.
I use a mixture of Vallejo Game Color and Citadel Paints. Some colors are good on the other range, while some on the other. For this model spesifically I used Scab Red, Blood Red, Skull White, Chaos Black, Beasty Brown, Snakebite Leather, Fortress Grey and Codex Grey.
Thats a really nice red. How did you go about achieving it?
