First off I should start this post with finger pointing. Raine and Kae, you guys have created a monster!
I’ve played Warmachine a couple of times but after the first time I decided to buy a battlegroup for Warmachine (Cygnar) and Hordes (Circle of Orboros). Jacob, my husband, also got a battlegroup for both groups too (Convergence of Cyriss and Skorne). We just got our groups in yesterday so we did what any war gamer does, assemble the figures with glue. I still have glue on my finger tips today.
I have looked at several sites and Youtube videos to get inspiration on how to paint my Cygnar army. I’ve painted a Mercs army (another miniature war game) but I want to try different techniques this time.
First, the Cygnar group looks good in blue and yellow but the picture on the battlegroup box is too heavy on the blue. I took to the Privateer Press’ forum to see what others did for Cygnar. I really like Defenstrator’s paint scheme! So I will mimic a similar idea for my army.
What is a miniature without awesome effects on the base? I took a look at a post from Insider on Privateer Press to get an idea on how to take care of the base. Typically basing is the last step for me but this time I’m going to try something different. I plan on putting down the terrain first then prime everything. This should help seal in the terrain.
I also plan on adding some rust to my Cygnar army so they can have a worn look. I can’t wait to get started on painting these guys and I’m even more excited about playing with them! I hope all this works and I will post pictures throughout my process.
“They are more than willing and ready to defend themselves and their beloved kingdom from those who would crush the principles of freedom and all for which Cygnar stands.”
