Cygnar: Storm Strider Part 4 (Strider Riders)

Spent some time last night painting up the stormsmith's that ride on the strider. They still need a little work and some clean up, but I am happy with how they are coming along. I have to figure out what I am going to do with the storm control device in the left hand of the first guy, and the machine controls of the second.

I was thinking more about these photos. I was not particularly impressed with them. So after posting them I went home and shot some new ones to replace them. The new ones turned out very close to the same. Then I thought maybe it was my paint job on these was just not upto my normal level. So I used the photos to find the places I didn't like and wanted to touch up. What I found was these models are tiny, on the scale of the Black 13 (if you know what I mean). The areas I wanted to fix were barely visible when I went to find it under my spectrum light. I did fix some of the things I found but I decided that maybe I zoomed in on them a bit too much. I decided looking at them under good light with out vision enhancement, they look fine.

Cygnar: Storm Strider Part 3 (Solid base)

It has been awhile since I have posted an update for my strider. I have been working on the base as well as the top. Here is a quick update photo.

40k 2011 Tournament Lists

I have been asked by a number of people for a copy of the lists I used this tournament season. I happily give out my list to every opponent I play against so I guess there is no harm posting them here.

OFCC 2000pts

Astro 1500pts

Cygnar: Storm Strider Part 2 (One step at a time)

After a few solid painting sessions I have the base of the walker in a decent state to show work in progress. This model has a lot of surface area, it is coming along nicely. There is still a few clean up areas and highlighting to finish but overall I am happy with how it is shaping up. I need to work on the base next.
