Protectorate Battle Group

Postby Laughing Man on Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:07 am

A few months ago, I accidentally stumbled upon my friend Feeple discussing an idea with Flanzer (yes, my friends have odd names. Deal with it) for something he called the Riverdog Fight Club. With the (then) impending release of Warmachine's MkII rules, we'd each start a new army. Over the course of four months, we'd paint a total of 100 points of models, blog about it, and culminate in a Sweet 16-style bracket. Being the sucker I am, I threw my hat in the ring immediately, and bought up a short fuckton of Menites.

Well, Prime MkII is finally released, I have the shiny new stat cards in my hands, and these are the results of the first month of painting:

The entire 25 point battle group in all its glory!

Feora, Protector of the Flame

The Avatar of Menoth, Heavy Warjack and Beater of Ass

A Devout light warjack

Crane, one of two Dervish light warjacks

The other Dervish. I call him Frank.

Last (and probably least), Feora's bonded Redeemer, Sparky.

If you've enjoyed these guys and want to follow my progress over the next 3 months as I paint another 75 points of Menites (dear god, what have I gotten myself into?), check out my blog over at the Iron Agenda!

The models for those are so cool. Your painting skills remain astounding, the fire at feora's feet (I assume fire because of her name) looks fantastic. Actually to me it looks like she's walking on some crystalline ground. The Avatar of Menoth is also a new favorite piece of mine, he looks fantastic.

Looks Impressive.
I don't know anything about the game so I don't know how powerfull those are, but if I could have that many large figures for 500 points much less 25 in warhammer 40k I could win almost any battle.

Doesn't hurt that the average game size in MkII hovers around 50 to 75 points. ;)

Ayep, fire. Looks a bit better in person, hard to get a proper angle on the base with my setup. :/
