Menoth Battlegroup Quickpainted

EDIT: I added higher rez crops of my pics.

Well, I've finished with my first ever purchase of Warmachine. Last night I just sat down with a good movie in the background and pushed on through.

These were all painted with "dipping" in mind. The goal was a VERY quick and repeatable paint scheme. The dip was Army Painter Soft Shade.



I'm happy with them. They're painted and fully functional for play.

Paints used: Same as my "Menoth Test 01" except I eliminated several steps: Primer white, paint broad areas (skip the "black work" prior to painting the metallics), then slather on the "dip" with an old crummy brush. Flocked with just basic flock over white "Elmer's" glue.

Takeaway: Army Painter "Soft" is too soft, my Choir will be used as guinea pigs for "Strong" dip and just plain MinMax (I didn't use MinWax on these because I wanted to try the very very light shade, if I'm going with darker dips I start getting back into classic MinWax colors).

Up at Reaper on Wednesday nights is the plan. I haven't been there yet myself, but now that my starter box is done, I hope to.

We will also probably be playing at Comic Asylum or Hobby Town Plano from time to time as Reaper isn't that convenient for most of us
