I had one of these going at the official forums but I don't go there anymore so I'm going to do it here instead.
I got a lot of stuff painted up prior to Mk3 dropping; a little bit before that happened by group cooled on WMH (nothing to do with the game, we just got into X-Wing instead) and my armies lay fallow for a while. We're getting back into it now and so I'm getting some momentum on my armies again. Posting pictures is motivational, so here we go.
Starting off with some Khador stuff. I stuck with red for Khador but I wanted something very different than the studio scheme, and I think I got it.
Zerkova1, converted from the old battlebox Sorcha because I didn't like the original model and the new one hadn't come out yet:

Irusk2. Mine has some conversion work done on it. He was missing the head, which I was okay with because I didn't like his ridiculous hat, and the replacement head I came up with reminds me of Bruce Campbell, which makes my Irusk approximately nine thousand percent cooler than anybody else's. I also had problems getting his giant metal flag to attach securely so I ditched it in favour of an Imperial Eagle style standard. Quite happy with how it all comes together.

Thanks for the kind words! The transition on the jacks was done with a dark base coat and progressively brighter thin highlight layers shading towards the edges. I've played around with two brush gradients but I didn't use anything like that here.

Getting started on uploading my Cygnar, which are the focus of my current painting push.
For these guys I wanted something sorta Cygnaresque but not the studio scheme, so I went with a teal and tan combo with some blue. I tried a few different combinations before settling on this and I'm pretty happy with it.

I have some serious faction ADD with Hordes. I was awfully tempted by Legion and maybe even Circle before I decided I just liked Titans too much not to go Skorne. Not a fan of most of their infantry, though.
I'm not a fan of the harsh, bold Imperial Roman look of the studio Skorne so I went in a completely different direction with mine, which I'm going to call "Centauri Republic Drow". Pretty happy with how it's working out so far.
My Skorne are my smallest force and I haven't played much with them. Need to pick up some more stuff to get critical mass for a few different lists. Some of the newer Skorne models are really ringing my bell, though, like Morghul3, who I can't wait to paint up.
