Codename :: Project Rainy Day

As most of you know, I have had a recent brush with cancer. I had my thyroid removed and underwent radioiodine therapy to treat it. I’ve now been declared “cancer free”, with a follow-up scan scheduled for a year from now. While this is great news, the financial aftermath continues. Major health care costs always hit when you’re least prepared and now I’m scrambling to make sure every bill is covered.

In order to raise money for medical bills, the BrushThralls are offering you a rare opportunity. The six of us are painting a complete, ready-to-play WARMACHINE army. Then we’re putting it up for auction! Having at least one piece from all six of the BrushThralls is hard enough to acquire, but having a playable force that we’ve all worked on together is unheard of. Welcome to Project Rainy Day.

This 750-point army is a 701st Iron Rain list, as seen in No Quarter 9:

Faction: Khador
Army Points: 750/750
Victory Points: 24
Forward Kommander Sorscha Kratikoff
o Behemoth
o Devastator
Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich
Winterguard (10)
o Winterguard Officer and Standard Bearer
o Winterguard Rocketeer
Winterguard (10)
o Winterguard Rocketeer
Winterguard Field Gun Crew
Winterguard Field Gun Crew
Winterguard Mortar Crew
Winterguard Mortar Crew

I’ll be building and converting all of the models myself. The paint work will be split up among the group and then the models will return to me for uniform basing.

Of the list above, the current paint roster looks like this:

  • misterfinn: Forward Kommander Sorscha Kratikoff
  • Terarin: Devastator
  • Serpent_Six: Kovnik Jozef Grigorovich
  • Dead Dogg: Winterguard (10) + Winterguard Rocketeer
  • ArkenTyre: Winterguard Mortar Crew x2
  • YoungWolf7: Behemoth / Winterguard (10) + Winterguard Officer and Standard Bearer + Winterguard Rocketeer / Winterguard Field Gun Crew x2
  • Ali “Fluffy” McVey: alt pose Sorscha!

All of the force will be painted in the 701st Iron Rain paint scheme. (This is the same scheme featured in Superiority for the “Unbreakable 111th” Infantry Battalion on pages 120-121.) Since this will be a large project, we’ll be posting regular updates here in the blog on our progress. This might mean cutting back on some of our regular article updates, but it’s for a worthy cause. At the very least it should prove to be an entertaining read, so check back often! We’ve created a Project Rainy Day category in the posts here on the right hand side of the page, so if you want to just read those posts that pertain to this project it will be easy to sort.

As we near the end of the project, we’ll post the auction details. Stay tuned.

Onward for the Motherland!


Update: Ali just signed on to paint an alt Sorscha for the cause. This will give the force some other tactical options, as well as adding an original Fluffy piece to the collection. :)
