The Withershadow Combine by cwalton73 The Withershadow Combine by cwalton73
"Cloaked in darkness, this group of iron liches have stalked western Immoren and ripped its arcane secrets out of the shadows for over five centuries. This trio acts as one of the more subtle and precise instruments in Cryx's arsenal. Through rites unknown to any others, they may dismantle warjacks with frightening ease. The Combine then corrupts the cortex and summons in 'jacks from the Nightmare Empire to wreak havoc on the living. "

More stuff from the upcoming Warmachine: Legends. Just thought I'd chop these guys into one pic for posting. Hella fun to concept.

so awesome to see some of the concept work of my favorite hobby. but lordy do i hate this trio. my opponent always brings them in his Eskarre list. such a nightmare to deal with. its amazing how well they translated from concept to final model though :) which only shows how good a job ya did :D superior concept work breeds superior models.

I do so love this concept. The idea of three lichs as one force is great, and you've really played with their nuances to then really bring them to life.

As always, outstanding work!

These were by far some of the best concept to model models by far.

They just have so much character, I'm so glad you work for PP, as I don't think it would quite be the same without you.

Ohboy, these guys look most unfriendly! Our IK RPG group fought one iron lich over three day's worth of gaming. We won, but just barely. I'd hate to think what fighting three like this would be like. :omg:

Excellent work and cool details! The little puppet looks almost cute, which is scary. :sprint:

"ghostly power guy" well that's descriptive enough to work with I guess. ;) They look good as always. Now where is my eIrusk? ;)

Yes, sometimes Jason gives such descriptive terms in his briefs...

I don't know about your eIrusk, but mine is painted and on the shelf with his compatriots. The concept art is hanging on my wall at work... and there it'll probably stay until we decide if we're doing a concept art book or not.

Atta boy. Painted mine the day I got it. In the display case at our LGS. Hrmmm... don't know why ya'll wouldn't want to release a concept art book. It would fly off the shelves.
