Storm Gunners

These guys were nice to finish off. With them done the Stormblades are at last complete. They lack the Cygnus that the regular Stormblades have so I painted the quater panel on the shoulders for colour. This also helped to set them apart as the special weapon troopers they are. This not only makes them more characterful, but is actually pretty helpful when keeping track of everybody on the battlefield.

Long Gunners

So, these guys have been like a millstone around my neck. They just took forever to do. On the bright side, now they're done and it's another full infantry unit for the army. I'm finding the Long Gunners a bit erratic in MKII. With the right caster against the right opponent they can be great, blasting infantry and jack alike. But with the wrong warcaster or against the wrong army they have often proven to be a complete waste of points. I can see why people like Gun Mages better, they're just more consistent. Plus I feel Aiyanna & Holt are almost mandatory for any list with Long Gunners just to make sure your investment isn't shut down by things like the Choir or Wind Wall.
