WM: Mercenaries Reinholdt Gobber Speculator (Solo)

Last night my son had a Warmachine League game with his Cygnar army vs a Retribution of Scyrah army.  It did not fair too well for his Cygnar, but he did manage to last longer than I did with my Khador army against the same opponent.

His opponent mentioned that every "shooty" Warcaster for Cygnar and Khador should not leave home without the Mercenary Solo "Reinholdt Gobber Speculator".  With the ability to grant a Warcaster "Reload" to gain an additional ranged attack ignoring ROF is just too good.

It turned out that my local game store just received a shipment of this Solo.  For $5.99 he was too good to pass up, and when I saw the model, I just thought that he would be fun to paint up.

I made a comment that as soon as I get home I am going to glue him together and get him primed.  Sure enough that is what I did, and this morning I started painting him.  Just like I thought, I really enjoyed painting "Reinholdt".  I dont mind spending a little extra time on Warcasters and Solo's and I think it really shows on this guy.

  2. Thank You... The coat was done with the following:
    P3 Rucksack Tan as a basecoat.
    P3 Menoth White Highlight. Lightly on the edges and high spots on the back of the coat.
    GW Devlan Mud Wash afterwards.

  3. Did you thin your wash at all? I like the subtle wash you have going on there.
