Khador - 35 Point Achievement!

And here's the full army shot! So that's 1 warcaster, 2 solos, 4 infantry, 5 large infantry and 3 heavy warjacks. Fairly low model count actually, but with 3 heavy warjacks and the 5 large Man-O-Wars, it still looks fairly formidable.

I plan on running some practice games now that I have two full 35 point armies painted up, and I'll see if I can do some Battle Reports as well.
I plan on taking a week off painting, just to give myself a break before launching into my Hordes armies. I'm still really excited to start though, so maybe I'll just started getting them assembled...

Khador - Kodiak

I had doubts about this Warjack - I thought his head looked kinda goofy, sorta like he was wearing some douchey hat. But he grew on me, and his Armoured Fists do look pretty kick ass.

And that's my Khador complete! I started work on my Khador on December 6th, with the assembly of the Khador contents of my Warmachine Two Player Battle Set. It's now December 30th, so just under a month to finish off a 35-point Warmachine army - not too bad! I'll start using this as a benchmark to get my upcoming Hordes armies finished too.

Alright, I'm going to go outside now and see if I can sort out a whole army shot - stay tuned!

Khador - Koldun Lord

Being honest, I wasn't looking forward to painting this model. He just isn't a model I particularly like, and I found it difficult to motivate myself finish him up. Still, I vowed that I wouldn't even touch my Hordes until my Khador was done, so I pushed through and got him painted up anyways :) I plan on using him to marshall my Destroyer, which I read is a common and effective tactic.

One more Warjack to go, and my Khador are finished!

Khador - War Dog

It was really difficult getting the colour on his fur right - I tried a few different light brown paints before settling on a colour that I thought looked a little more natural.
I've still got to do his snow basing, but I'll do that together with the Koldun Lord and Kodiak.

And that's the 25 point mark for my Khador! I'm not sure what I'm going to do about a group photo, as my backdrop isn't big enough to fit all of them and lighting is going to be an issue. Hopefully I can figure out something tomorrow.

Khador - Last Models Undercoated!

I spent Saturday morning assembling the Koldun Lord and Kodiak before getting an undercoat on the last three models for my Khador. After opening my Christmas present yesterday (two Hordes armies - yay!), it's going to be tough getting through these last three models with my new shiny Hordes calling out to me - but I swore I'd finish my Khador before starting on them!
