Here are just a few of the gorgeous tables in the Iron Arena at Lock & Load.

It's been over a month since an update from the painting table. Cygnar is still a priority and some good progress has been made.
|Sword Knights - fodder for the fires of Menoth|
|Stormwall - "Put me in, coach!"|
Stormwall makes it into play
|Markus "Siege" Brisbane|
It turns out that Siege is quite the handsome fellow. His sculpt lends itself to painting a good looking face.

There's a whole slew of models on the painting table right now. I'm still trying to build up a critical mass of Cygnar models/units to make for some more flexible lists.
First up, the Sentinel. Mainly, Caine wants a Shield Guard model. The sentinel is a good choice since he's got more boxes and some shooty applications over the Bokur.
Eventually I'll post shots of completed models, but it's just a pain in the ass to get the "studio" set up to take them. The iPhone does a great job with shots on the table and the pictures seem to have more flavor to them.

The Stormwall is assembled, but I'm procrastinating on painting it. In the meantime, I started on the pods. I'm going to try some weathering effects on them once the painting is complete. I'm thinking soot on the vanes and mud on the base.
Arlan is almost done. I tried to add some details by painting his gauges with a needle and "danger zone" but I'm not sure if it really adds much to the model. I still struggle with painting metal, especially on isolated spots. Larger bits are easier.
The Thunderhead has been assembled and primed for months now. Having just finished pNemo, I'm trying to get some progress made on him. Recently I started using a Vallejo "extra opaque" brown to undercoat the gold instead of the typical black. It's worked out really well. Even when base-coating white, which I normally avoid with metals, the brown is dark and opaque enough to cover fine.
Also in the queue, I'm assembling Boomhowlers and Jonas Murdoch. They should be a nice complement to a large majority of Cygnar lists.

I painted these a couple of months ago, but this is the first time I've had a chance to post pictures. We've got some new additions including the Bloodtrackers + Nuala and Gallows Grove. I've yet to put either on the table but hopefully this weekend it will happen.
