Painted Lady Aiyana and Master Holt

Here are Lady Aiyana and Master Holt, a unit for my Warmachine Mercenaries. They’re quite interesting mechanically as they feel to me rather more like a pair of solos who have to stay near each other rather than a unit. Lady Aiyana is a spell caster whose main ability is to increase the damage done by other friendlies to a chosen victim. Master Holt is thematically her bodyguard and has some tasty gunslinger rules. I have to admit that I have never used them on the tabletop (I got the pair as part of a secondhand lot) but Joe uses them against me to great effect quite often.

I really enjoyed painting Lady Aiyana and Master Holt. I kept a single scheme of predominantly blue and yellow to tie them together visually, but gave Lady Aiyana some brightly coloured hair to emphasise her status both as unit leader in the rules and exotic adventurer in the stories. Considering the age of these sculpts they still look the part.

I dedicate this post (or at least Lady Aiyana’s part of it) to Fembruary which is being run by Alex on the excellent LeadBalloony blog.

Next on the painting table: Steelhead Cannon Crew.

  1. These are very nice, I like how you have tied the pink scarf in with the hair.

    • Thank you. I wanted to give them a good visual link to make it clear that they’re a unit on the tabletop; I think that they look like they should be two solos.

  2. I like the bright colors you picked and these moody sculpts. They really do look like mercenaries to me 🙂

    • Thanks very much. They’re a pair that I suspect appear in a RPG played by the game designers or something as they have a disproportionate amount of story presence in the game background.
