Bane Thralls

Continuing on with my Cryx project for Warmachine...

This is a unit of Bane Thralls...undead weapon masters that produce a dark shroud around them, reducing enemy armor values.

I've got to say that I love these figs...except for the goofy big axes. The figures are very well designed with good poses and animation and 'em. Very evil-looking. But what's with the axes? So over the top. I wasn't going to replace them, however, so I embraced them and just went to town on the blood and gore. A satisfying exercise in the end.

Commander and grunt.

Two Thralls.

Final gore shot. I put a lot of rust on the axes as well to get them as textured as possible.

I've painted these guys using the same weathering method as my other Cryx models...lots of MIGS weather powder and paint chipping.

'Til next time.


  1. I like the weathered look, suits these guys perfectly.

  2. Oh these are such wonderful models and you've done well by them indeed! I miss mine, sigh!

  3. Nice work. I agree on the axes--more menacing with a thin, long weapon. But nice rusting!

  4. Really like the blood/gore effects.

  5. BigLee,
    The blood is brown and then red ink blown from the tip of a paint brush. Pretty quick...and messy!
