Unboxing the Warmachine Battle Box + Painting Questions
I’ve recorded this video about 5 times, never happy with the results but this one is the closest one to acceptable for me. I wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention who was debating checking out Warmachine. There’s a lot to wonder what’s inside this box when you’re dropping so much money on it. I wanted to do the models justice and make sure I had a nice enough camera to do so, which took me some time. Warmachine is a superbly fast and fun game, and I think this battle box is one of the best ways to get into it because you get a lot for your money and it is more cost effective than just purchasing a starter box for one army. Of course this means that you’re limited to Khador and Protectorate of Menoth for your initial foray into the game but still, I think it’s well worth it. I wish I would have taken the plunge a lot sooner than I have… about 3 Killa Kans, an Ork Trukk, and one Assault on Black Reach box later to be precise.
Painting Mini’s is Not Like Riding A Bike
Anyway, I’m learning (re-learning really) a lot about miniature painting right now. Things like thinning your paint, using the right primer, and a lot more are all brand new ventures for me as I used to just slap the paint on right out of the pot, straight onto the bare mini. I’m using a flat grey auto primer that was recommended on a lot of miniature painting forums (Rustoleum brand I think) and I’m also trying out Games Workshop’s new brush on primer.
I’m not sure how I feel about the brush on primer yet (click the image)…are formula P3 paints thinner than GW paints? I have lots of questions people! So if you’ve got answers for my painting noob-ness please feel free to put them in the comments. If you’ve got questions about the battle box, I’ll answer them in the comments! Thanks for checking this out!
