These were part of my first batch of minis from Privateer Press.
I've liked the Warmachine minis for a while, and I finally took the plunge.
The quality and detail were pretty good. However, I do have some qualms.
Mostly, the material is metal, which is not easy to work with at all. Additionally, the arms didn't always fit together nicely, which is an extra added pain, because again, metal is difficult to work with.

Assembly:

Major pain. Every single piece has mould lines. Pinning parts took forever because drilling metal is not great.
Honestly, it was kind of a nightmare, and took an inordinate amount of time. So a major bummer there.
If you are looking for something quick to put together, look elsewhere.
It does make me pause when considering purchasing future Warmachine minis. Which is not great, because they have a some cool minis for sure.
Mould lines were not easy to remove.

Paint:

Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniatures painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line, no metallic paint.
Took a few hours for each one. I first had them blue skinned, but didn't really l ike it so I transitioned them to green'ish. After painting, I left them for a few days to dry.
This was one of my earliest first attempts at non-metallic metals with oils, and it was pretty simple.
I cannot imagine the headache this would be with acrylics, but it was so easy with oils.
Obviously, not the greatest. Especially the gold trim, could have pushed the contrast a bit more for sure. But the shading and rust coloring was very easy and quick to do.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.

Base:

Custom made with PVA glue, sand, rock bits, flock, and grass tufts from World War Scenics.
