It’s a Long Road to Cancon

New Pictures of the army - all is going well with the army 3 weeks to go.

Bokur





























50 Point Steamroller Caster Orsus Zoktavir (Epic Butcher)



Beast 09 (Older model with plenty of character)



Great Bears of Gallowswood



They just don't look like they belong in the a team punk setting but considering the Khador story they fit in just perfect to the list - Hit like little Mack trucks! too.


Drakhun with Dismount - I love this model (the mounted) It just sums up what Khador is all about IMO were bigger and covered in more metal than any model really has any right to be!

It’s a Long Road to Cancon

Just finished the Kayazy assassins with underboss AU, I've added Yellow to the colours for this unit to repersent the Khador Ally unit aspect, yellow will not be used on the rest of the armies.

It’s a Long Road to Cancon

So the target is set 36 models and the time frame 21stof Jan, notice that in the two list only one model (Spriggan) is repeated.

Here is the colour scheme I have in mind





Why I painted the Khador model so far from the Khador red norm,
I’m red and green colour-blind; I find painting solid red areas really painfully and shading red nearly impossible.

Also I think red is maybe one of the worst colours for winter camo

I’m not really sure what Khador was thinking when they spayed their Jack bright red and sent they into the Cygnar gun lines – it’s not like they were difficult to hit to start with.

The Grey and Blue colours contrast nicely and will used across the whole army, even mercs.

The Blues is done with the following

Starts with a 75 % Codex Grey (GW) and 25% White base coat,
Washed in Tamiya Smoke X-32 (10 – 1 ratio with water)
Then 50 % Codex Grey,50 % White touch up.
Finial highlight of pure white rivets and edges.

The Blues is done with the following

Starts with a 75 % Royal Blue (GW) and 25% Codex Grey (GW),
Washed in Tamiya Smoke x-32 (10 – 1 ratio with water)
Then 50 % Royal Blue,50 % Codex Grey.
Finial highlight of white with a slight amount of the above touch-up colour

I’m keeping the metal on these models very simple, PP pig iron and GW silver with washes or GW badab black and Tamiya smoke and then reapplying the metal colour until I get the look I’m after.

I find painting metals it’s more about the appearance of weight of the object that conveys the right look – Metal jacks need to look really heavy where a assassins dagger needs to be lighter, easier to wield.







It’s time for a table (No project is complete without a checklist)
