Cygnar: Year End Catch-Up

Hope you had a great Christmas and are enjoying the holidays! 

I'm just wrapping up another year at the hobby table, looking back and seeing what's been done, but not yet photo documented. Here are a handful of Cygnar models for Warmachine that haven't been shamelessly pimped here yet.

First up in the Cygnar 'caster, Kraye.

I really love 80% of this model. The great molded base...the atmospheric posing of the horse...the pile of gear. But what is with Kraye's very artificial and static riding pose? It would have been much better if he had been hunched over with his rifle over his lap, rather than the "rifle/arm is cast along the lateral mold line...of course." Anyway, still a nice model that I enjoyed painting very much.

Next are a handful of important Cygnar solos.

Stormsmiths. With the availability of Stormwall, you'd need as many of these guys as you can fit in a list. They are just too good. The ultimate anti-high DEF infantry take-down pieces.

Journeyman Warcaster. He provides an extra Arcane Shield for your list. Crazy.

Hmmm, everyone in Cygnar is blue. They really need to be cheered up.

Finally, Strangeways. Cygnar's best mechanic and 'jack support piece. And as far as I know, the only Warmachine piece that smokes a pipe on the battlefield.

Are you looking at my bum? Cheeky monkey.

Well, I have more Cygnar on the painting table, but they are taking a back seat to a slew of Lord of the Rings stuff I'm painting right now. Thanks, Hobbit.

'Till next time.


  1. What are you painting Kevin, the Goblin Town starter box? Will you be playing the Hobbit game or just using the models for other rules?

  2. Looks good Kevin. I thought about trying to "clear" my painting table before Years end, but figured it would be futile as I have so many little fella's hiding behind paint bottles.

    Sweet! Another person with the HOBBIT. I have also picked up this game, though $50 for a named character Goblin/Orc was just a bit extreme for my tastes, so will stick to the plastic box sets.

  3. Hmmm, while The Hobbit re-kindled my interest in Middle-earth...I'm actually painting Elves and Rohirrim from the old lines. In terms of rules, I've poked my head back into the Strategy Battle Game (stupid name!), and of course, these will all be good for SAGA some day.
