Day Of Paintenenening

By The Megapope   Posted at  20:37   Warmachine 2 comments

Bright was the day and cold the morning when your hero Megapope strode across the Plains of Sorrow and braved the heights of Mount Anguish... no wait it was actually closer to Johnsonville.

The lads and I decided to make the most of the extra day off work by applying some paint to various warmachine models. Naturally I took a camera along so I could document how the minis progressed and also take some pics of daft friends pulling silly faces.

The first thing this trip taught me was that I seriously need to invest in a decent carry case for all my crap. Vomkrieg has a nice fold out silver trunk thing, small enough to sit on a table, big enough to carry his substantial paint collection, brushes, tools, small House Elf servant, etc.

Also not seen: inflatable painting giraffe
I brought along this lot, plus a lamp and other useful things. Enough to be annoying and to take a while setting up, when I could have just operated out of a nice fold out casey thing. BUT NO I WAS A MUG.

So who were the intrepid painting team you ask? GEEK SQUAD ASSEMBLE.

The Millinator paints super slowly but that's okay. He's collecting Menoth!

A man of wealth and taste. 
Smitey. Took him approximately 6 years to paint.
Aaaaahahahaha it says 'SMEG PACKAGE' in the background.

The Five Foot Pole appropriately enough plays hard bitten Dwarven mercenaries. He and Vomkrieg spent much of the afternoon playing a game while Millinator and I lurked inside where it was safe, painting.

Look at the size of that drill. Look at it! 
FFP's Dwarven Hoard™ in battle!

Vomkrieg has a blog, like a real grownup! Sadly, he has many enemies due to his years as a secret government agent and so opted for anonymity. He plays Cygnar! 

I think his photo is pretty seamlessly done and you can totally tell I'm a designer.

Pew pew! Dakkadakkadakka. Pew!

It may look like a discoball on legs but it packs a mean zap

As for myself, I managed to get my Manowars base coated and inked up. Here's some progress piccies, as well as a couple pics of how Sorscha is coming along. Nobody took a silly pic of me on the day, so here's an amusing photo of me at the Warmachine gaming club.

It ain't easy being greeeeeeeen

Now with sexy gold and red and boltgun metal


Highlighty goodness

The face needs some work...

And that was my long weekend of painting. Yaaaaay. One Juggernaut down, six Manowar and a warcaster on the way to completion and some other things waiting in the wings. Next up: playing some more games and getting my ass handed to me a lot. Whoooo!


  1. Dude, loving your posts. Great to see you getting on board and getting that Khador out on the table :)

  2. Thanks! Looking forward to getting stuck in and having my arse handed to me at the club...

Who is this beardy weirdo?

My photo
Hatching from his egg high in the glacier crowned majesty of the Himalayas, the Megapope quickly devoured his other siblings and later on his parents, for being damned cheeky. He ran a bloody campaign of terror across the wind swept steppes of the north, coming to be known as 'That Horrid Bastard' by the terrified tribes of the region. Many years later he came second in a beauty contest, won $10, didn't pass Go and didn't collect $200.
