I have two server 2012 r2 VM's running. Both on vmnet2 (host only) on vmware workstation 10.

However, I want to configure Default gateway on both of them now how do I do that because when I go to vmware network editor it has only DHCP configuration available.

    It would be helpful to know what you are trying to achieve. Typically you wouldn't have a default gateway on a host only network.

    You would need to setup a router to route the traffic to another subnet. You could do this by setting up another VM running Server 2012 running the Routing and Remote Access service and connected to both networks. In my lab I'm using GNS3 for my simulated network. It took about three days to make it work because I didn't know what I was doing, but after I figured it out, it works great!
