Anyone out there on the WAMP forum?

For those who don’t know, WAMP is a miniature painting forum.  They’re not dedicated to any particular manufacturer or game, they’re just all about painting good looking miniatures.

I apparently joined up three years ago, and then promptly did nothing on the forum.  Recently, though, I’ve realized just what they have to offer, and I’m jumping in with both feet.

Over the weekend I attended a local tournament as a participant (for once).  The event had roughly 30 people, and spilt into two tiers once the first round was over.  Both tiers had $$ prizes, but the top tier also had coins.  Additionally, there was a Best Painted Army award.  I ended up going 1-3, but winning games wasn’t my goal for the event.

After round two, we were told to set up our best painted of our two lists, for judging. Obligingly, I set up the list I had taken to Templecon, and that I had been working on all last week (thus why I don’t have any paint on the Behemoth.  That, and his ankles broke, which is discouraging).

  • Added snow to the bases
  • Added arc markings

Here’s the army:

The Extreme Behemoth.  It’s a mark of status among the Khador players, and it’s a project that has many variations.

The Behemoth is a character Warjack that is … well, it’s huge and armored and bristling with weapons:

Hailed as the ultimate Khadoran warjack, the Behemoth exemplifies the best qualities of Khadoran design: extremely heavy armor, a devastating array of weaponry, and immense strength. This peerless warjack is as much a symbol to the Khadoran people of their power as it is a force of destruction to any who would stand against it.

However, for a ‘jack that’s name means “bigger than big”, the model’s a little scrawny and is doing the funky chicken instead of being big and menacing like it’s name implies:

So, way back in the day, PG_Cloud-Gatherer came up with the Extremoth, a Behemoth based off the Extreme Juggernaut model:

Not only does this more accurately convey the idea of BIG, it also looks more in-line with the rest of the Khador ‘jack line.

Today, I’m going to show you how I made my interpretation of this conversion:
