"An eerie glow pulsates from the Slayer's furnace, a frightful light illuminating even its eye sockets, suggesting some greater intelligence. After decades of Cryxian terror along the coasts, any greenish lights - like those found floating in the bogs and fens of Immoren - are often called "Cryxlights" by superstitious travelers".
The bad boy is back!
I've been missing seeing that model painted in the glass case for a long time...
This sculpt was acually what dragged me into Warmachine back in like 2003 or 2004.
After years of Games Workshop's stuff Warmachine was so refreshing, not even mentioning badass Cryx sculpts!
We've been into this for several years, dropping Warhammer and Necromunda totally.
Things changed after Privateer Press released another expansion with even more unbalanced models and started switching from metal to plastic stuff.
That was the breaking point for me.
I sold most of my models (most of the painted army that is...) leaving just some fav models.
But like 2 weeks ago I spotted an advert:
the guy was selling some unpainted models I used to have fun with...
I called my One True Foe about it and it turned out he was also kinda nostalgic about oldschool, FULL METAL gaming.
I've excavated some unpainted helljacks and few days later the infantry was delivered...
What you see below has been waiting for some care for quite a long time.
So long that I actually should feel kinda shame letting it rot unpainted...
Instead of painting this with "classic" Cryx scheme (black + creepy green light
) I decided to paint it similar to M4A3 Sherman howitzer:
natural greens, natural dirt + some chipping.
The general idea was to make it look more realistic and "believable".
All in all I like the way it turned out:
it's surely unique compared to most Cryx you can see in the webspace!
I am kinda dissapointed the legs aren's so dusty I was hoping for: applying dry pigments on such a weirdo angled surfaces seems to be more tricky that I was hoping for initially.
Blood wasn't necessary but model was lacking of some contrast.
The next bad boy from the battlegroup: Seether...
