Warmachine: Choir of Menoth

I last put paint to a Warmachine model in 2011, before putting them on the backburner to concentrate on 40K. However, I did start painting one of my units before I did. As such, they've been sitting unfinished on my shelf looking at me for the better part of three years. Since it's now my goal to paint up all of the models that I have assembled, they were a logical next step. Also, my brother's series of articles on getting started in Hordes has rekindled a bit of my interest in the game.

Here's my latest unit, the Choir of Menoth:

These guys aren't my most detailed or complex models, but I'm happy with how them came out. When painting them, I couldn't help but think that they are very similar to GW models from 10 years ago. That's no slight against them. Many of my favorite GW models are from that period. However, the details aren't quite as crisp or deep as I'm used to now. The robes require some extra effort to give them some depth, as the folds on them aren't that deep.

I had the most fun making up slogans to write on their scrolls. For those that don't know, these guys are from the Protectorate of Menoth, a theocracy dedicated to a very strict god that is crusading against unbelievers. I tried to play that up but keep it a little tongue in cheek.
