Epic Haley is just that, shes epic
Both the model and her effect on the table are simply awesome.
Any astute readers with memories longer than a goldfish (actually gold fish have ok memories, so lets change that to anyone with a memory longer than a politicians in regards to their own blunders) will recall that I love painting robes and cloaks.
The simplest techniques generate great results on robes.... and well Epic Haley is just one giant robe.
I really enjoyed painting this model, and if anything I skimped work on the body and weapon to focus on the flowing cloak bits.
The technique is highlighting at its purest. Start with a dark colour and use progressively lighter highlights as you paint the parts of the model the are closer to the top.
If you're having trouble visualizing what to highlight, try spray painting the model black and then applying a light grey or silver dry brush to the model. The high areas will pick up the drybrushing and that should act as a highlighting guide.
In game Epic Haley is beyond stupidly powerful. She is arguably the best warcaster in any faction. Her feat is a complete game breaker, she has high focus and a fantastic spell list on top of a warjack bond and the ability to copy opponents spells.
She won't beat very many enemy casters into submission with her fists, but as a support caster she right up there.
I've only used her twice in games so far and shes won both of them. If anything she was so good by herself that i barely put any thought into my list. Just pick random models, add epic Haley and you've probably got a good shot at winning.
Coming up soon, Epic Nemo and a break from Warmachine painting.
