This wee wrecking ball of a chap is smashing through walls to bring you some quality pics of my paint job. Check out my Einhyr Champion on the blog today and find out why I don’t like it.
So shall we deal with the Einhyr in the room first… “Why don’t you like the Einhyr Champion Garfy?” I hear nobody cry out. Well, it’s because it doesn’t have a good photographic side. It doesn’t matter what angle I shoot it at, something is obscured or confusing. Take the straight on shot for instance, you can barely make out what the weapons are. is that his Mass Hammer, or is it his lunch box? The you have the other side on angles and honestly, with both arms down, it looks like he is tripping over. In the end, I just did both angles and included a lot of close ups, that way you can appreciate the model sculpt a bit bitter.
Painting wise, I followed my Kâhl paint recipes but obviously didn’t have to include any of the fabric guides. With no browns or greens to break the model up and make him look less like a giant lemon I decided to paint the shoulder pads as a battered scratched up metal. It’s just Leadbelcher, washed with he new Nuln Oil and then I sponged on some Runefang Steel damage and painted some thing Runefang Steel scratch lines too.
This kit include a couple of head options, a couple of crest options (teleport and Weavefield crests) as well as a choice of two melee weapons. I chose the Mass Hammer over the Darkstar axe which makes him str 10, -3 AP and D3+3 damage. It is -1 to hit with though, making him hit on 3+ in combat, which knowing my luck, if I was a gamer, means I’ll fluff all 4 hits.
Those chunky cylinders on his back are Mass Driver Accelerators, which means when you finish charging within engagement range, if you roll a 6 or the roll beats the highest toughness in the enemy unit you do D3 mortal wounds. Very nice! He also gives friendly Hearthguard the ability to reroll wound rolls of 1.
Rules-wise, he’s awesome, I just wish he wasn’t stacking it off that rock and looked cool.
