Little by little, for the second time now, I’ve gotten all my current Convergence of Cyriss models painted, varnished and based. Woopee!
The Hover vector doesn’t look brilliant compared to the other models. It’s always stuff that hides in the netherworld, then pops out when the camera focuses and takes a snap shot. Oh well.
Rest of the stuff has turned out nicely, even if the photos have inexplicably turned out blurry (they looked crisp on the screen, but must of de-focused as I took the photos. The light has more or less gone even in the Sun room now…
I think it’s the wings: the Clockwork angels have turned out really well!
Steelsoul Protector has a well balanced feel to it’s pallete, very happy with her.
For a unit that will make 3/4 of my lists, these guys are relatively plain in comparison, but the Optifex Directive unit can save your clockwork army’s bacon from time to time.
I do love the Iron Mother Directrix model. Her servitors are alright I guess.
Speaking of servitors, it would be rude for me to not mention the Reflex servitors. Rare it would be for me to actually hire them into my army, but they’re not a bad option for the Prime Axiom to drop into play.
And the Hover vector. Probably my messiest piece of work really. Least, if you’re looking for faults in it’s paintwork anyway. The messiness becomes invisible when he’s at wargaming table height. Also magnetized, for options!
One minute he’s an Assimilator!
Or is he a Conservator?
Or is he really a Modulator?*
* no. The modulator is a hovering turkey with everyone except under Syntherion, who makes it passable. But there’s still better choices he could take, so it’s under certain circumstances that this vector becomes worth the chassis.
Happy with my painting so far, getting some stuff back off Alex, who graciously offered to help build some of my stuff couple months back.
In a good spot where owning both the whole range a Warmachine army has access to, AND having it painted is concerned. Couple months, reckon I’ll have everything prettied up. Then I can probably permit myself to indulge mindlessly in the best faction in the game. A faction where half the time the warlock selection doesn’t even matter, and the warbeasts can all become horrendously fast moving Steak Death Machines. The Bronzeback titan is Chuck Norris’s spirit animal. Makeda is so badass, Chuck sometimes gets the honour of buying her drinks; depends how pissed off Makeda is at the time.
