Here is an Ironhead, a solo for my Mercenaries in Warmachine. She’s part of the Steelhead mercenary company and therefore is part of the Soldiers of Fortune theme force. I was slow to like Ironheads in the game but they’ve grown on me in my Fiona list for two reasons. Firstly, they have a pretty good repair ability and I often found myself with a Blockader with a crippled system so being able to fix that is very useful. Secondly, Ironheads can place models 2″, which doesn’t sound much but can be critical in a game of threat ranges like WarmaHordes. I’ve typically used it to move Dez a bit forward in turn 1 as she really loves a bit of out-of-activation movement early in the game, and then later to move a Steelhead Cannon into range of something tasty.
The miniature is a new one (I assume from the same generation as the Arcanist) and the improvements in sculpt quality from PP is noticeable compared to some of their earlier pieces. I kept the Ironhead to the same colour scheme as the rest of the Steelheads, but even without them I feel that she really suits the green and bronze look. She was pleasure to paint and I’m very pleased with the result.
Next on the painting table: Dez.
