Well here is the Start of my Mercenary list. Still need to sort out the bases but that will be the only thing left to do, Still have Greygore Boomhowler & Co [Trollblood mercs] a squad of Nyss Hunters [they are the survivors of the Nyss a race of Elves that have been blighted by Everblight the Dragon and are now the Legion, Wait for my future Legion lists.] Piper of Ord, Reinholdt, Anastasia Di Bray, Gorman Di Wolf, epic Eyriss to paint up.

VERY nice! You moved out of your comfort zone... and the paint looks GREAT! Keep at it! Excellent choice of colors.

I understand what you are doing with the base, but I don't know if they work. You know I don't have 'vision'. I would suggest not using the colors your models are based on.... that brown/khaki is really cool. Maybe black (for the back) and yellow/black warning stripe for the front.

I had black as the back first and could not decide on the front colour.

I can't use blue as Magnus was a Cygnar officer until he become the Traitor of Cygnar,
Not sure if the black and yellow stripes fits with Warmachine maybe death squads but not the Steampunk.
The front colour of silver is to represent the fact they fight for coin. The green on the back is what they are Mercs. I may change this to black need to think about it some more.

I like my Merc's the colour scheme is basic but suits them. the colour code works like this:

Blue: Cygnar
Red: Khador
Green: Cryx
Orange: Protectorate
Pale Blue: Retribution

The rest of my Merc's should be here by the end of the week will start working on them pretty soon after that.
then I'll post the pics once done....

there is alot more Units with this next lot some undead as well. should be fun.

You are a painting beast. I have 1 3/4 of my Menoth done lol.
Of course with the card game design going strong and my classes (16 hours out of class work per week, drawing and photography classes).

I don't have time for anything else at the moment.

LOL

I had 22 days off work while my wife was over seas so you can get alot done and yet get the dishes, washing, feeding the sprogs, bathing said sprogs, and
then spending 2 hours trying to get them to bed.

I am also painting up my 6mm soviets and German divisions so I am pretty busy.

Paint jobs are getting sharper and sharper - plus your rate of production is hugely impressive! The shots of whole units in particular look great. I've never played warmachine, but it looks pretty intriguing.

Laney:D

its the first game that has captured Lady Grey's attention she has a Cryx list she is slowly building and painting.

I have a Legions List that I am also building from the Hordes rule set. it plays differently, yet you can play hordes against Warmachine with out any issues even though one has Beasts [Hordes] and the other has Warjacks and other steam-punk type units/solos [Warmachine]

The way the casters use their power to control the beasts/warjacks is very different. The Warlock [Hordes] takes Fury off their beasts which allows it to function in a way the Warlock would prefer it to do. On the Other hand the Warcaster [Warmachine] gives his War jacks Focus so he/she can better control it.

Legions are like Dark Elves that have been mutated with Dragon DNA and then set loose on the world, both a melee and ranged lists they have very LARGE and very SMALL beasts that can kick arse.

Cygnar are a gun-line dream, a mass amount of guns with heaps of skills to help you. ALOT of war jacks some work better with a certain caster as they are bonded but most the jacks you'll want one or two of.

Mercs are troops for higher these men and women travel the land seeking battles some will fight for coin and is powered by a burning desire to wreck devastation and mayhem on the general population. Others use the coin for more noble causes, the freeing of their oppressed nation from the clutches of Khador. Or your warcaster could be an outlawed Cygnar general who is being hunted for his past crimes. while he is seeking revenge upon them for abandoning him and his beloved king they over threw. You can field a Merc list or add mercs to your Faction list....

Each faction offers you the player a different choice with heaps of units, solo characters, war jacks and character war jacks that will aid you in your mission, quest, adventure.

The name of the game is kill thine enemy.... the most common way to end the game is to kill your enemy warcaster/warlock. once this has been achieved the game ends. you can play games that are 15pts, 25pts, 35pts, 40pts, 50pts, 75pts, etc etc....

The size of the game we play here in New Zealand is 35pts but in the U.S the amount is closer to 50pts.

@ Laney the game is fast passed and you need a pair of steel balls you can not sit back an wait for your enemy to come to you its not a drive through. you move and attack, shoot, and move but don't just sit there or you will DIE!!!!!

hope that helps

Cheers
