From BrendonW: 30mm Warmachine Warcaster 'Kommander Harkevich' (6 points)


From Brendon:
This one took a while but here he is. 
Kommander Harkevich, The Iron Wolf.  30mm scale, Metal, Privateer Press for Warmachine. 
This is my first Warcaster army leader for my Khador faction force. The warjack BlackIvan has an affinity with this boss. While Black Ivan is in Harkevich's control area he gains boosted range attacks. Sounds good to me. 

Traditional Khador faction colour is red so I stuck with that for parts of this model. It took a lot longer than many other figures I have done recently due to the amount of detail on him and not just his size. 
His large size actually lends itself to taking your time. The illustration of this character shows him with a black beard but I wanted a brighter area against all that darkness around his head. Looking forward to painting some more figures from this range as the sculpts are excellent and the castings top quality.
I must confess that I really don't know much about Warmachine other than it's quite popular in these parts and is considered serious competition to the 40K tournament circuit. From what I've seen of the figures the sculpting and casting quality seem very nice and Brendon's top-notch brush-work takes great advantage of these characterful models.

Kommander Harkevich will give Brendon 6 points. Nicely done and good luck with him Brendon!
