McMurrough!

Finally completed McMurrough from my previous post on Painting Plaid! In every painters queue there’s one project (or a dozen in my case) that never seems to get finished. Well this pooch  has been squatting in my painting docket for a couple years and it feels good to wrap it up. I was intimidated by the plaid and a bit uninspired for a good color layout that would fit with the rest of my army.  Finally, I just gave my self a deadline which I missed by a few days anyway. 😛 Sometimes you have to stop over-analyzing and force yourself to finish. Are there a few things that I might have done differently? Sure, but who cares! So without further delay here he is.

The following excerpt is from the Corvus Belli website. Enjoy!

“Buaidh No Bas” (“Victory or Death”). McMurrough’s Scottish Gaelic motto.

McMurrough is a Dog-Warrior of Fortune, the fiercest private contractor you will find in the mercenary market. Now he is trapped in his Dog-Warrior shape, unable to return to his Dogface form, and carries an illegal Templar sword, a smart weapon with a built-in AI. How did McMurrough end up in this situation and what does the Hassassin Society have to do with it? This is something you will find in the upcoming Infinity Campaign Book!

Mas Nomads

The three Wildcats that came in my Corregidor box are done! The days of painting large-scale armies are pretty much behind me but even with smaller, skirmish style games like Infinity, you sometimes have to paint multiples of the same unit. I’m so glad I got these guys models finished first and off of my painting table (aka my kitchen table). Now I can move on to the cooler stuff! 😀

All in all I’m glad with the way they came out. This color scheme is very different from my Haqqislam stuff so I can jump between the two groups if i need a break from one color palette. I’m also very pleased with how the rusted metal bases came out. They’re from Secret Weapon’s Tau Ceti. The sheets of “paper” are made out of thin  plasticard and help add some extra hight and variety to the bases. I might add some text and color to them later, but this’ll do for now.

Here’s a group shot of the Wildcats.  As you can see the scale between the models are all different which is the only thing i don’t like about the sculpts. Otherwise they’re pretty sweet. I also painted them with different colored lights so I can differentiate easily on the table top. “The giant blue one is going to shoot you in the face!”

So that’s what I’ve been up to. I’m a busy little bee.
