Oh dear they do indeed look grim! And that is very good, well done, what wash did you use to make the black come across the way it did?

Try to keep a blank page
But these memories they cloud my mind with grief
Faces lost forever
And the guilt of feeling some kind of relief
But when the end finally comes I won't despair
I'll just keep on hoping I might see you there

Excellent! Really like the use of NMM here, and the clever shading of the black/grey armor plates to represent a light source above.

The bases really nail it, too, being attractive in their own right, but also (importantly) being a bright (but realistic) scheme against which the dark models contrast, so they don't get lost.

These are great! My roommate and I recently looked at buying the Warmachine starter box! I am thinking I might end up with the Kador though!

Madness! I LOVE the style that you're working on these pieces, the color scheme is one thing, very cohesive and very sweet, but the application and execution of the highlights give such perfect definition, treating the sculpts with respect and yet seeming to ADD depth to an already 3D object.

I'm guessing there's some airbrush involved but it's worked in so well it doesn't act like a dominant effect, it's another in a collection of techniques at work here, these are awesome to look at!

Everything about these models is just bloody amazing.
That black though, that really makes them something special.
Not a single thing here that i dont like.

Any chance of a full army shot?

Beautifully executed, but I personally cannot appreciate the purple-black combination. The purple simply doesn't pop enough for me.

But technically flawless work. Fantastic!
