This Satyxis Raider Captain is a part of my gradually increasing Cryx army to play Warmachine. She’s a fast solo that I’ve generally used in a second wave of fighting, at least in the unlikely event that she survives a turn of capturing a flag. Both of her attacks cause knock-down on hit which is obviously very handy, though I don’t find that the Scourge of the Broken Coast theme force (of which she is part) really needs a lot of help in hitting. She’s also a handy carrier for aura armour de-buff spells, notably Asphyxious1’s Scything Touch, as she can receive the spell then use her extreme mobility to apply it in the most helpful spot.
I ended up painting the Satyxis Raider Captain in a sort of small unit with the two named Satyxis characters (more on them later) and tried to keep the colour combinations different. The sculpt is showing its age a bit, and of course we can see the classic chainmail bikini and combat heels look so beloved of fantasy miniatures. Even with that criticism I found the Raider Captain to be quite a fun miniature to paint, and I might at some point get around to painting the second one that I got in a random eBay lot a while ago.
