Until now I’ve manfully resisted painting anything for Warcry, at least until I’d managed to clear some of the more pressing projects from my desk, but I always knew I wasn’t going to be able to hold it off forever. Thus I’ve dipped my toe into the murky waters of the Bloodwind Spoil and tackled one of my favourite of the Iron Golems, the diminutive yet fearsome Armator.
Rather than the ash grey skin of the studio models I decided to go for a ruddy complexion not dissimilar to that which I used for my Necromanda Goliaths. Indeed there’s a strong similarity between the two groups, both being forge-workers and metalsmiths with a “might makes right” attitude and an appreciation for a bulging bicep or two. Of course now I’m tempted to recruit a few more Goliaths into my Necromanda collection – you can never have too many angry meatheads running around after all!

Nice work, I love those Iron Golem figures!

Cheers – they’re awesome aren’t they? Loads of character, I’m not even particularly tempted to start chopping them up and converting them, there’s really no need to – they’re pretty much perfect as they are.

Yes, I finally have enough painting allowance to buy either the Iron Golems or else some random figures from the Bones V Kickstarter. The Warcry gang is very tempting.

Well, I know which I’d go for – but then I’m a sucker for all things Warcry 😉

Hey mate that’s what they call me at work ! though the bald head is covered so it could be me !!

A sufferer from Sam’s syndrome? Surely not 😉 Mind you, I might well be a “TAM” for all I know 😀

Rarr! Looks great there! I love how much possible variety there really is in these, even if they do seem to have been designed with one specific aesthetic in mind.
October 31st, 2019 at 12:03 pm
Cheers! Yeah, they really take to different paint schemes – which is nice because I want mine to be unique but, despite my love of converting things, there’s really no need to start chopping these up, they’re cracking as they are.

Truth. I’ve put together three of the Warbands so far, and felt no need to convert anyone. That’s going to change soon, but just because I got a second set of the Untamed Beasts and I don’t want them to be identical.

Very nice mate. Looks like you might have another project underway.
October 31st, 2019 at 12:04 pm
Cheers! Yeah, without a doubt, this one definitely has me hooked already.
October 30th, 2019 at 2:17 pm
Heh, yeah, he’s pretty cool and I agree, your biceps can’t bulge too much and you can never have too many meatheads around!
October 31st, 2019 at 12:05 pm
Now you’re speaking my language! 😀
October 31st, 2019 at 12:26 pm
Well, great minds think alike, I’m sure!

He’s great man and yes very short and very angry.
November 2nd, 2019 at 12:29 pm
Cheers! The shorter they are the angrier they get right? 🙂
November 2nd, 2019 at 9:28 pm
The total anger is the same. It just seems like more because it’s compressed into a smaller volume XD

That’s been my experience

[…] six months since it was released my plan to paint up some warbands has currently only summoned a single paltry dwarf. Time to get myself into gear, starting with a pack of savage Untamed […]
