Project Update: Penitent Engines

I put the finishing touches on these bad boys last night while listening to the latest Minions of the Monster Master Podcast. The Penitent Engines are a pretty cool model and I like the fact that both drivers look different. They are pretty detailed and I got a chance to paint some fire again which will come in hand as I continue to paint my Protectorate of Menoth for Warmachine.

For this model I went with a black undercoat followed by dry-brush of boltgun metal followed by highlight with mithril silver. All of the metal was then washed with badab black to give it that used oily feel. The rest of the colors are bleached bone, mechanite red, skull white and red gore all washed with devlan mud.

The second model was paint with a black base coat with tin bitz dry-brush followed by mithril silver dry brush for some aging. I then used the same colors as the first model on the driver and banners followed by a thorough application of devlan mud wash.

These models were a blast to paint due to all the detail available on the model. With their completion I now have only my Exorcist left to paint before my Sister's of Battle are fully painted. I may pick up a few more models (Most likely a 2nd Exorcist) but I am inclined to wait until they get a new codex before buying anything else.

Well I am off to write another article as well as start painting some other minis. As always, thank you for checking out my blog and please feel free to leave me a comment.
