From BrendonW: 28mm War Machine Warjacks (40 points)


From Brendon:
These 2 big Plastic Warjacks for the War Machine game actually didn't take as long as some figures that are much smaller to complete. 
I think the scale of War Machine is 32mm Heroic. These steam and magic powered metal apes are around 70mm tall including the base. On these heavy metal beasts I wanted to emphasis the Metal as you can see. I started painting some pant chipping on the areas of colour but it was a much better result by using some torn foam from blister packaging that we all have in our hobby stash. 
I used the same basic colours as my Mantic Dwarf army and I might use these as stand ins for a 'Steel Behemoth' in 'Kings of War'. I have based them the same way as my Dwarfs with the interesting black stone and quartz mix. 
I have not played War Machine but it seems to have a bit of interest at my local club at the moment.

I can't profess to know anything about War Machine but these look very cool. I really like the exhaust ports (mufflers?) on the top of their chassis. I also really admire the chipping effect you've achieved from the torn foam - I'll have to remember that for future projects...

These two Warjacks will give Brendon 40 points. Great job!
