Painted Gun Boar (part two)

This is the second Gun Boar for my Hordes Minions force. I don’t currently use two in my army (though I can imagine builds that might do so) but I got them both together as part of a set. There isn’t much to add from a gameplay perspective beyond what little I wrote for the other Gun Boar.

I did a darker colour on the skin for this Gun Boar, aiming to go with more a of a wild boar / warthog look. I don’t think that anyone is getting this mixed up with a specific real life pig but it looks different from the first Gun Boar so it works fine on the tabletop. Most of my paint work looks rather better at tabletop distance rather than these zoomed in pictures!  It’s probably worth noting that the basing is the work of the Gun Boar’s previous owner too; it seemed pointless to remove the corkboard since someone had gone to the effort of pinning the whole ensemble together.

Next on the painting table: Bloodwrack Shrine.

  1. Nice work, mate – looks great!

  2. Very nice! I really must pay more attention to Warmachine/Hordes – I had no idea that Gun Boars were a thing and now I think I want to be one when I grow up!

    • Thanks. It’s a really fun game to play, and there is plenty of silliness available if you don’t like your gaming to be unduly Serious Business. For example, one of the rules on the Gun Boar is called Bacon, and it allows other warbeasts to heal if they’re next to it when it dies. Mmm, delicious bacon.

  3. I really like how the metal turned out. It has areal brushed steel effect.
