Painted! Gamed with, and defeated 😦
As you have seen in update 8 I have succeeded in painting Butcher1 this month. However somewhere I am sure I mentioned taking part in a slow grow WM league at my gaming club. The first part of the league is at 15pts mangled metal. So I have been playing Butcher1 with two Juggernauts and a Marauder. One of the guys at the club is playing Cygnar and his caster is Constance Blaize, I have played him twice and both times I have lost. The first time was my own stupidity, instead of killing the jack stood next to Butcher and winning by killing the battlegroup I charged Butcher1 into Constance expecting to wipe the floor with her. After whiffing all the dice rolls I was killed in the next turn. The second game against Constance, after Butcher1 was painted, I lost as she got a charge off on me and wiped the floor with Butcher. So in shame of being defeated twice (by an infantry caster in mangled metal format) I decided to take the chipped and battle worn look of the axe head and apply it across to the rest of Butcher’s armour.
Here is the result:
I admit I have not quite got the technique right for black armour (so much so I feel I have spoiled the paint job a little), but I am pleased with how the red armour turned out.
Also figured I would do a group shot of what I have painted so far for the PP Forum’s Tale of 2014, seeing as we are half way through the year.
It was actually a request from someone on the PP forums. As I was at a friend’s house using their nice gaming terrain I thought I would take a quick picture on my camera phone.
Hah! I totally figured you were joking when you mentioned doing the chipping across the whole model. I think the extra battle damage adds some solid personality to the most infamous brute The Motherland has in her service.
And the whole crew sure does look fantastic all together.
Thanks jimb0, I admit it was actually suggested to me completely as a joke, but I thought why not.
