    Warmachine - Castigator and flameguard

    Didn't quite get the Castigator finished in time for the vehicle painting contest... oh well.

    Thought I would share the pics. Will probably post more pics of the flameguard later...

    The reds are my standard deal... Basecoat vallejo model color - burnt cadmium red, brown ink was, first highlight burnt cadmium red, followed by scab red, gory red, and finally a touch of bloody red (all vallejo game colors).

    Golds started with brassy brass, brown ink wash, highlighted with burnished gold and then shining gold.

    Overall a nice and tidy unit I think.










    For some reason these guys remind me of spartans! :w00t: Comments and criticisms are always welcome!

    cheers,

    -Mike

    Great work as usual buddy, the reds are lovely and rich, though I think a few more highlights wouldn't have gone amiss (especially on the larger surfaces on the warjack), just to make them pop.
    The metallics are nice and even, though I'm always a fan of grime in Warmachine, it just doesn't seem like a very clean place to me... ^_^

    Like the alternative colour scheme as well, it's red, but it doesn't scream "Khardor". Good thing.

    Hey thanks -T! I am not sure why but for some reason the pics are a tad washed out. I remember looking at some wip pictures that showed the red much richer. I even used tissue over the lights to help diffuse it! Oh well...

    I am really not all that familiar with Warmachine but you are right I believe Khador is red. I don't know anything about this faction other than the box art is whitish with purple and metal accents.

    The one thing I was very pleased about was putting together the castigator. I thought it would be a pain in the ass and figured I would have to pin the whole thing together but surprisingly it all went together without a single pin and is solid. The joints for the arms , legs, torso are large and thick for extra support. This beast is solid!

    Another think I liked about these guys - while they are minimal in detail what is there really stands out nicely. Kind of like a less is more aspect. I really liked that.

    Cheers,

    -Mike

    Wow. The reds on these guys are fantastic. Very smooth and very clean. The metallics on the castigator are very well done. This is very impressive. I'm going to have to give your process for painting that red a shot.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Yes please post your results on using the reds. I have found it quite effective. You can get a slightly different tone by using purple ink instead of brown as well. It give it a more crimson feel...

    Thanks again for the comments!
