What good is an army without its commanders? What good is a Dawnguard army without it's Scyirs? No good, that's what!
I used to have a Scyir about a year ago, but after participating in a Press Gang painted figure exchange, I was down to zero. I wasn't really feeling the Retribution at that time, so I went without until after this Christmas. After a few Amazon gift cards and a couple days wait, I had two brand new shiny Scyirs.
I painted these guys relatively quickly, doing most of the work in a two or three hour session. I pushed the highlights a little more than I did on the Sentinels, which meant I had to do even less work with the brush. As with the others, I really love how the red pops on the rank plates. It's a small detail, but it adds a lot to the models.
I'm becoming more pleased with the metals. I'm altering the mix found in the Retribution force book slightly, and I think it makes the metals look a little more realistic.
Next week will see one of the favored 'jacks that these guys like to marshal, or at least, what I like to marshal with them. I have a few others in mind that I would like to marshal, but I would love to hear opinions! What are you favorite 'jacks to marshal with these guys? Don't forget the Sentinels and Invictors! What do you like to marshal with them? As always, comments and question on the figures are welcome!
