Thunderhead is Cygnar’s OG character jack. You don’t see him in a lot of competitive lists because he’s so expensive, but he is most definitely a fan favorite. I’ve played him a few times and I always have a blast! (pun fully intended)
I have to admit though; this isnt my best work. I was coming fresh off my stormwall and picked this guy up on a whim for Nemo3. Since the release of Dynamo, I’ve paired them as my main jack combo for 35pts versus my horde-heavy meta. The jack has never let me down. His paint job, on the other hand, could’ve been a lot better.
I was trying to naildown my rust technique and it just looks rough. I tried using washes and they look exactly like a liquid form of rust running down the armor…not a slow, powdery fade. The Cygnus on his hull looks banged up and its not intentional. This is a full metal model and the sculpt is kind of subpar. It took a lot of pinning and cleanup.
The colors came out nice though and the power zones look nice and hot. The pose is a little awkward, earning him the nickname “DJ Thunder” which I refuse to call him. All in all, an okay job. Not my best effort on this one.
