Khador Torch

Finally finished Torch:

Torch

I was really sceptic about the new Khador plastic warjack kits. I’m no fan of plastic and the new design with the larger back didn’t agree with me either.

It took me about a year to finally sit down with the kit and assemble a jack. My first impression wasn’t very good. The plastic took a lot of work to clean up and get ready for assembly. But once I began assembling Torch my doubts evaporated. The plastic allows for so much more flexibility than the metal kits gave me. It was very easy to reposition the legs and get a slightly twisted torso.

I’m very happy with the end result. The jack looks much more dynamic than any of my metal ones. In addition to that in direct comparison the proportions of the new chassis are much better then the old one. The legs and feet are a bit larger and fit better.

One of the only things I didn’t like about the new plasic kit is the absence of a Khador symbol on the back of the jack, so I decided to add one.

What’s up next?

Since the release of the new plastic Warjacks from Privateer Press I’ve wanted to try out one of the Khador heavy kits. I’m rather skeptic about the models as I’m not a huge fan of plastic. Additionally I don’t really like the changes in the Khador chassis.

On the other hand plastic models generally assemble with less effort and are way easier to pose and modify.

I’ve chosen Torch as my first Khador plastic jack.

Koldun Kommander Zerkova

Finished Zerkova:

Zerkova

Zerkova is one of those minis where I loved the concept art and was rather disappointed with the actual model. The original face looks weird, the mini looks rather flat and her “forward stride” pose is a bit odd.

I tried to solve at least two of those problems with my Zerkova. The most prominent conversion is her head. I removed the original head and replaced it with the Head of Rasputina from Malifaux. In addition I changed her pose to a more stationary one.
