Orsus Zoktavir -  The Butcher of Khardov
     Today, I am going to show off a little bit of my Khador army,  and where else to start but with The Butcher of Khardov.  A beast of a man, very few could withstand his charge. Orsus was my first warcaster and one for the first models I painted for my battle group, and one of the most enjoyable.

When I first started this army I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to go for a muted camouflage theme or the Khador red.  I obviously ended up going with the red.  I was getting a little tired of painting in drab grays and greens, so I threw it to the wind and chose the red.  Not only that, I do a considerable bit of shading on these models, however I do it rather subtly, I am not really a fan of some of the extreme highlights out there. 

Kommander Sorscha

 Kommander Sorscha was the second caster which I used, though she was actually my first caster model.  I bought my friend's starter set and a squad of winter guard when he switched to Cygnar.  Traitor.  He sold it to me for 25 bucks, which was great, I think he just wanted me to get into Warmachine that much.  I don't use here all too often, but she's a pretty solid warcaster and has some nice abilities.  Not really too happy with the paint job on this one, just could not seem to get it right in my mind.
Karchev the Terrible

The second most used caster in my army, well most used if you count using him as a proxy juggernaut.  He is a real beast, warjack and caster all in one!  Amazing!  I really enjoyed painting this model.  The model is really great, but I did not like the cape thing so I did not include that.  He will ruin your day.


Here's my plastic warjack kit.  It's got all of the options magnetized, and I chopped off the other axe so it could have 2 fists and act as a kodiak.  I also have the metal Juggernaut and Destroyer from the starter kit.  All three of my jacks have lots of chipping, I like the look of both the old metal models and the plastic one, but you can't beat getting so many options with the plastic ones.

Man-O-War Shocktroopers
 Shocktroopers, a staple of Khador's forces.  These guys took forever to paint, it felt as if I was painting a unit of five light warjacks.  These guys are pretty good in game, but they really need an assault order, shield guns are a waste if you don't get to shoot them as you charge.

 Widowmakers are another great Khador unit, the sniper rule, and being able to automatically do 1 pt of damage is great.  Seeing as they are supposed to be snipers there is considerably less red on these models.  On their shoulder armor there is a red circle painted on with the Khador symbol inside of it.
I still need to get the solo model, it's pretty damn cool looking and seems to be pretty good in game as well.
Battle Mechaniks
Last up for today are my mechaniks, from what I hear there are to be new models, which is nice to add some variety, but I really like these models as they are.  Since two of them are the same I added some bits to make then more unique, such as the fire extinguisher and some wire and such. The extinguisher is made with half of a cadian flamer tank and some rubber coated wire.  The leader has the Khador symbol tattooed on his bare arm, as any good servant of the empire would.

So, there's a little look at some of my warmachine models.  I've got about 50 pts all told,  but I'm looking to get some more once I finish buying what I want for my Imperial Guard. 

Comments?  Suggestions?

For the glory of the Khadoran Empire!

On another note, I am not a fan of this new post publisher.  The pictures are a pain in the ass the arrange, and you have to edit the HTML to get Enter to work near them if they get too close.  I would really hope they fix this crap.  Not make it worse.
